Based on the highly successful 5 Series MSO

The 5 Series MSO Low Profile is based on the 5 Series MSO benchtop platform. The benchtop 5 Series MSO has a remarkably innovative pinch-swipe-zoom touchscreen user interface, the industry's largest high-definition display, and 4, 6, or 8 FlexChannel®inputs that let you measure a single analog channel waveform, a spectral view of the analog input, simultaneous analog and spectral views with independent acquisition controls for each domain, or eight digital logic inputs (with TLP058 logic probe). The 5 Series MSO is ready for today's toughest challenges, and tomorrow's too. It sets a new standard for performance, analysis, and overall user experience.

Like the benchtop 5 Series MSO, the low profile instrument offers FlexChannel inputs, an optional arbitrary/function generator output, and a built-in digital voltmeter and trigger frequency counter. And, if you plug in an external touch-capable monitor you can experience the same revolutionary pinch-swipe-zoom user experience as if you were in front of the benchtop 5 Series MSO.

For more information on the capabilities of the benchtop 5 Series MSO, including the revolutionary user experience and the various analysis software options, please see the 5 Series MSO datasheet




The 5 Series MSO Low Profile is based on the 5 Series MSO benchtop platform.

Low-profile, high-density package saves space


The 5 Series MSO Low Profile has 8 FlexChannel inputs plus an auxiliary trigger input in a space-saving 2U high package designed to fit into 19-inch wide racks. The instrument has side air vents so that instruments can be mounted in a rack directly on top of one another, saving even more space.

The 5 Series MSO Low Profile comes standard with rack mount brackets installed, ready for mounting into a rack right out of the box.




Multiple MSO58LP instruments installed in a rack, making efficient use of available space.

An optional bench conversion kit includes four feet and a strap handle for use in a lab environment on a bench surface.

Experience the performance difference

With 1 GHz analog bandwidth, 6.25 GS/s sample rate, 125 Mpts record length, and 12-bit analog to digital converters (ADCs), the 5 Series MSO Low Profile has the performance you need to capture accurate waveform data with the best possible signal integrity and vertical resolution for seeing small waveform details.

The 5 Series MSO Low Profile has up to 6.25 GS/s sample rate on all channels, providing more than 5x oversampling, enabling better noise performance and fine timing resolution.

The standard 125  Mpts record length provides 20 ms of acquisition time at the highest sample rate (6.25 GS/s), enabling long time captures while maintaining high timing resolution for more accurate measurements.

Industry leading vertical resolution

The 5 Series MSO Low Profile provides the performance to capture the signals of interest while minimizing the effects of unwanted noise when you need to capture high-amplitude signals while seeing smaller signal details. At the heart of the 5 Series MSO Low Profile are 12-bit analog-to-digital convertors (ADCs) that provide 16 times the vertical resolution of traditional 8-bit ADCs.

A new High Res mode applies a hardware-based unique Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filter based on the selected sample rate. The FIR filter maintains the maximum bandwidth possible for that sample rate while preventing aliasing and removing noise from the oscilloscope amplifiers and ADC above the usable bandwidth for the selected sample rate.




1 GHz frequency plot with High Res filter overlaid shows the reduction in noise when High Res mode is enabled

High Res mode always provides at least 12 bits of vertical resolution and extends all the way to 16 bits of vertical resolution at ≤ 125 MS/s sample rates. The following table shows the number of bits of vertical resolution for each sample rate setting when in High Res.

1.25 GS/s 13 
625 MS/s 14 
312.5 MS/s 15 
≤125 MS/s 16 

Typical 8-bit ADC oscilloscopes have an Effective Number of Bits (ENOB) of between 4 and 6, depending on bandwidth and vertical scale selected. The 12-bit ADC in the 5 Series MSO Low Profile, coupled with a new low-noise front-end amplifier, provides an ENOB of between 7 and 9 bits, enabling better viewing of fine signal detail in the presence of large amplitude signals.


The following table shows the typical ENOB values for the 5 Series MSO Low Profile measured with High Res mode, 50 Ω, 10 MHz input with 90% full screen.

Spectrum View

It is often easier to debug an issue by viewing one or more signals in the frequency domain. Oscilloscopes have included math-based FFTs for decades in an attempt to address this need. However, FFTs are notoriously difficult to use as they are driven by the same acquisition system that’s delivering the analog time-domain view. When you optimize acquisition settings for the analog view, your frequency-domain view isn’t what you want. When you get the frequency-domain view you want, your analog view is not what you want. With math-based FFTs, it is virtually impossible to get optimized views in both domains.

Spectrum View changes all of this. Tektronix’ patented technology provides both a decimator for the time-domain and a digital downconverter for the frequency-domain behind each FlexChannel. The two different acquisition paths let you simultaneously observe both time- and frequency-domain views of the input signal with independent acquisition settings for each domain. Other manufacturers offer various ‘spectral analysis’ packages that claim ease-of-use, but they all exhibit the limitations described above. Only Spectrum View provides both exceptional ease-of-use and the ability to achieve optimal views in both domains simultaneously.
