PicoScope 2408B 4-channel 100 MHz PC Oscilloscope

PicoScope 2408B is a 100 MHz 4-channel oscilloscope which features built-in spectrum analysis, function/arbitrary waveform generation and serial bus analysis. The 2408B has a maximum sampling rate of 1 GS/s, buffer memory of 128 Msamples and 1 MHz AWG signal generator. Fifteen automatic measurements are available in scope mode and another eleven in spectrum mode. Serial decoding is a standard PicoScope feature and includes SPI, I2C, FlexRay, CANbus, LINbus and ARINC. The 2408B offers excellent waveform visualisation and measurement, as well as fast waveform update rates. It delivers the performance needed for advanced analysis of waveforms, including serial decoding and frequency plots. The PicoScope 2408B takes advantage of the computing, display and communication power of an attached laptop or desktop PC – now incorporating pinch, zoom and drag capabilities.

Pico Technology Oscilloscope

The Pico Technology 2000 series 4-channel, 100MHz PC based oscilloscope is small, lightweight and a modern alternative to benchtop devices. It is used on the bench, so it takes up little space and can sit right next to the circuit under test. PicoScope6 software (included) enables high-end features such as serial decoding and mask limit testing to be incorporated as a standard. It has a sample rate of 1GS/s. The USB connection facilitates printing, copying, saving and emailing field data. The high-speed USB interface provides fast data transfer and USB power eliminates the need to carry around a bulky external power supply.
Software supplied includes PicoScope6, Windows and Linux SDK, example programs C, Visual Basic, Excel VBA, LabVIEW. PicoScope software PC requirements are Microsoft Windows XP (SP3), Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 (not Windows RT) 32-bit or 64-bit.
