GWInstek MDO 2000E04 August 2017 - GW Instek launched the new MDO-2000E series multi-functional mixed domain oscilloscopes. The series includes two feature combinations : MDO-2000EG and MDO-2000EX. MDO-2000EG models have a built-in spectrum analyzer and a dual channel 25MHz arbitrary waveform generator and MDO-2000EX models feature a built-in a spectrum analyzer, arbitrary waveform generator, a 5,000 count DMM, and a 5V/1A power supply. The first of its kind, MDO-2000EX is the only oscilloscope to equip with a DMM and a power supply in the T&M industry.

While entering the spectrum mode, MDO-2000E series will display a full screen of frequency domain. Users can input Center frequency, Span, Start frequency, and Stop frequency based upon test requirements so as to rapidly and intuitively observe required frequency range that allows users to experience the user interface of a real spectrum analyzer. While observing frequency domain display, engineers can observe waveform characteristics, which are not easily to be seen from time domain waveforms, for instance, the harmonic composition of a waveform and the frequency characteristics of a modulation signal.

Conventional DSO's FFT always calculates the entire signal bandwidth up to half the sampling rate (Fs). However, the insufficient calculation capability can't conduct FFT calculation with more points. Users can't have the signal's detailed frequency information due to the insufficient frequency resolution from the calculation result. Whereas MDO-2000E series analyzes signal spectrum of interest. Compared with oscilloscope' FFT, MDO-2000E series allows engineers to effectively conduct signal measurements on frequency domain.

MDO-2000E series frequency domain also includes Spectrum Trace Type settings (Normal, Max-hold, Min-hold, and Average). Users can freely select various Spectrum Traces for simultaneous display. Detection method (Sample, +Peak, -Peak, and Average) can be individually set for each Trace. Additionally, users, via Cursor, can manually mark the corresponding positions to reflect Frequency and Amplitude. The Search function can also be applied to log spectrum's Peak Table. Amplitude is displayed with dB and Marker can obtain measurement data. Users can use the Search function to search and mark the amplitude and frequency of spectrum signal. Search methods include Max. peak and threshold. Measurement results can be displayed and saved.

The spectrum function of MDO-2000E series can also test signals below 9 kHz, which is applicable to the frequency domain analysis of audio frequency and vibration. MDO-2000E series can also test the frequency domain signal with DC component without damaging the instrument.
