Saelig Company, Inc. has introduced the 4-channel PicoScope 6000E series 500MHz Oscilloscopes as an addition to its 8 channel 6000 series. The addition consists of the PicoScope 6403E with 300MHz bandwidth and 8-bit A/D resolution, the PicoScope 6404E with 500MHz bandwidth, an 8-bit A/D resolution, and the PicoScope 6424E with 8, 10, or 12 bits “FlexRes” resolution. These new devices can provide 8 to 12 bits of vertical resolution, and up to 5GSa/s sampling rate with 4GSa memory, allowing these scopes to display single-shot pulses with 200ps time resolution.
The new devices are designed with a 14-bit 200MS/s 50MHz arbitrary waveform generator (AWG), the waveforms from the AWG can be created or edited using the built-in editor, imported from oscilloscope traces, loaded from a spreadsheet or exported to a .csv file. The devices have a variable sample clock to avoid jitter on waveform edges that are seen with fixed clock generators and allows the generation of accurate frequencies down to 100μHz.
The SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface and hardware acceleration provide a smooth and responsive display even with long captures. With up to a million points the PicoScope’s FFT spectrum display has excellent frequency resolution and a low noise floor, the spectrum plot of the active channel can be displayed with a maximum frequency of up to 500 MHz with a single click of a button.
The free PicoScope 6 software includes decoders for over 20 serial protocols and it can display more than ten times the information of ordinary oscilloscopes by using a 4K monitor attached to the controlling PC. The PicoScope software supports dual monitors to allow instrument control and waveforms displayed on one monitor and large data sets from serial protocol decoders or DeepMeasure results on the second monitor.
