The 2540C Digital Storage and Mixed Signal Oscilloscope (MSO) Series delivers advanced features and debug capabilities for a wide range of applications at an entry-level price point. With up to 200 MHz bandwidth in a 2-channel configuration, each model offers a maximum sample rate of 1 GSa/s, and a maximum memory depth of 14 Mpts. In addition, these oscilloscopes provide an 8” color display with 256 levels of color grading combined with a high waveform update rate up to 60,000 wfms/s, which allows the instruments to capture infrequent glitches with excellent signal fidelity. The MSO upgrade provides 16 additional digital channels and the Decode upgrade provides serial bus decoding for I2C, SPI, UART/RS232, CAN, and LIN protocols. These digital oscilloscopes are ideal for applications in design and debugging, service and repair, and education. To purchase an MSO or Decode license key, please fill out the license request form.
