Data Sources:  Tektronix MDO3000 Datasheet (48W-30020-10) dated 09 Oct 2017 and  Keysight 3000T X Series Data Sheet (5992-0140EN) dated November 7, 2017

Comparison Videos - Tektronix MDO3000


The RIGOL DS7054 delivers superior rise-time performance than the MDO3054 due to superior sampling and bandwidth headroom.


The DS7000's UltraVision II architecture and Phoenix chip set delivers significantly better frequency accuracy than the MDO3000


See the benefits of 10GSa/sec sampling and long record length in comparison to the MDO3000.  Avoid undersampling and signal distortion.

Waveform Capture Rate

Compare waveform capture rate performance of the DS7000 and the MDO3000.  Significant performance advantages are delivered by the UltraVision II architecture

User Interface

With a 10.1" capacitive touch display, a next generation touch interface and support for 5 unique ways to interact with your instrument the RIGOL 7000 Series is a modern alternative to the MDO3000.  Compare the differences 

RF Applications

Combine the power of the 7000 Series Enhanced FFT capabilities with the Real-time analysis capabilities of the RSA Series Spectrtrum analyzer for true multi-domain analysis

Precision Measurements

The RIGOL 7000 Series allows you to capture and display full record length measurements (up to 500M) in real time.  Tekronix MDO3000 requires you stop the scope and wait ~9 seconds

Measurement accuracy on long acquisitions 

RIGOL's 7000 Series Oscilloscope delivers accurate deep memory measurements in real time.  Due to insufficient sampling the Tektronix MDO3000 cannot make these measurements accurately.

Serial Decode

Triggering on Serial Events and  Decoding serial traffic is a critical capability for modern mainstream oscilloscopes.  Compare the RIGOL MSO7000 capabilities to the Tektronix MDO3000. 

Advanced Protocol Analysis 

Displaying Decoded Protocol in appropriate human readable formats and displaying events and payload in a easy to navigate event table are key analysis tools.  Compare the RIGOL 7000 capabilities versus Tektronix MDO3000

Advanced Search

Users need tools like zoom, event tables and searh/mark capabilities to navigate long record lengths.  Compare the RIGOL 7000 Series ability to identify signals of interest versus the Tektronix MDO3000. 

ZONE Trigger

RIGOL's ZONE Trigger capability allows the user to quickly isolate signals of interest.  See how the zone trigger allows faster debug of pulsing signals when compared to the trigger capabilities of the Tektronix MDO3000

Logic Analyzer

Looking at digital timing is a critical piece of embedded system debug.  Compare the RIGOL MSO7000 capabilities to the Tektronix MDO3000. 

Data Export

Moving Data off of the instrument for off-line analysis quickly and easily is important.  See how the RIGOL can move a 10Mpt .csv file in 1/3 the time as the Tektronix MDO3000
