New Tektronix 3 Series MDO
« on: May 17, 2019, 12:42:07 pm »
Might as well start a new thread for this.
There could still be a 4 Series MSO, that URL didn't write itself.

The SA is an option, so that means it'll be a software option.
As per the old MDO3000, it's probably $25-$50 in parts.

Not too surprised, the price is completely on par with the 1GHz offerings from R&S and Keysight. The lower bandwidth versions will probably be a lot cheaper.

Agreed.  But wait until Monday - we've got something coming that is pretty disruptive  :-+

BTW - scope looks nice.   :-+

The scope looks great, but as usual the Tek marketing department is either asleep or completely detached from tech.
Is the best thing they can figure out to say really that a touchscreen interface will be easy to learn "especially for smartphone users"?

I also thought that stuck out a bit. Maybe that is part of an appeal to the educational market where students have used smartphones for years, but never an oscilloscope?

Other than the cheapest scopes is a touchscreen even interesting enough to make it a significant bit of your marketing? It's half the blurb... I guess we'll know more about what they're thinking when they're officially launched.

It's look and work exactly like the 5 Series.

 Will be interesting to see if the 100MHz version has the 1GHz hardware...

Pretty sure Rich is talking about this, as someone found in the RTB scope thread. Pretty steep discounts for the top end MSOs with the app bundle.

It will be interesting to see if they start to flesh out the sub-350MHz market. Just steered a colleague who needed a basic scope for work away from a new DPO2000 series Tek that optioned up, cost nearly $5k. Comparable Keysight was $1900. No brainer. Glad to see Tek continuing to evolve (though the 6-series was way out of the stratosphere for price) but man are they seemingly out of touch with the market. To be fair Agilent is getting long in the tooth with the 4000 series as well.

Right, I'm curious about their marketing strategy.

"...helps teach mixed signal design..."

OK, so it's a cut-down, relatively inexpensive educational tool, right?

€15080  :palm:

To be fair, the schools would be buying the 100MHz model

How else do you justify tuition if you don't have fancy toys.

Like dermeister said, I gave some additional details in the RTB thread, but here is the gist:

It's in the same vein as our launch edition (albeit slightly more expensive), but without a quantity limit this time (limited in time - ends December 31, 2019).  It also goes across our RTC/RTB/RTM/RTA/RTH scopes, FPC spectrum analyzers and several of our power supplies/analyzers.  Basically they are fully loaded ("Complete") models - all channels (including digital for the scopes), highest bandwidth/frequency, all options (trigger/decodes, deepest memory, bode, modulation, etc, etc). 

Like I said in the other thread:  We've tried really hard to listen to customer feedback.  Projects change; you have money now, not sure if you'll be able to buy upgrades in the future; you want everything turned on for one price; etc.  You can still buy any of the "normal" models, but in a lot of cases, why would you?  When you can get a loaded (all options, even MSO/Bandwidth) Scope, SpecAn or Power Supply/Analyzer for one low price.  Is it for everyone?  No, but hopefully you all will see it as a step in the right direction (and vote with your money  ;) ).
