Pico Technology Ltd. (www.picotech.com) has announced the release of its PicoScope 5000 Series PC Oscilloscope, which features class-leading sampling rate, buffer memory and bandwidth. Unlike other oscilloscopes in its class, PicoScope 5000 Series does not compromise on any of these three key specifications. The series also comes with an integrated arbitrary waveform generator.
The scope has the ability to digitize signals with minimal distortions and with great accuracy. Its analog bandwidth of 250 MHz is complemented by 1 GS/s real-time sample rate. In case of repetitive signals, the scope provides an equivalent time sampling (ETS) mode, which increases the sampling to 20 GS/s.
As most digital oscilloscopes these days offer high sampling rates, many of them disappoint users with their tiny memory buffer, which allows the use of the scope’s maximum sampling rate on limited timebases only. Meanwhile, the series’ massive 128 megasample buffer memory guarantees that complex waveforms can be captured even at full sampling rate.
The series is also designed with PicoScope 6 oscilloscope software, which allows users to use their PicoScope PCO as a spectrum analyzer, oscilloscope, and meter. PicoScope 6 is easy to use and responsive. Fully packed with features, PicoScope includes advanced zoom tools, draggable axes and a waveform replay tool, which instantly records even the last 1000 waveforms.
PicoScope 5000 PC Oscilloscopes have been developed to consume the least space of the user’s valuable desk. Its innovative anti-slip case design allows users to use the scope either vertically or horizontally. Supplied in a tough carry case, the package includes two 250 MHz x1/x10 oscilloscope probes, a USB cable, PicoScope oscilloscope software and a universal power adaptor that enables users to use it almost anywhere in the world.
