World's first 1GS/s USB powered oscilloscope claims Pico

Pico Technology has launched what it claims to be the first USB powered oscilloscopes to offer a real time sampling rate of 1GS/s.

The three devices in the PicoScope 2000 series feature two channels, bandwidths ranging from 50 to 200MHz, a built in function generator, arbitrary waveform generator and external trigger input. The scopes are supplied with a full version of the PicoScope oscilloscope software and include features such as serial decoding, mask limit testing, segmented memory and advanced triggers. The display enables zooming and panning. According to Pico, the devices use digital triggering, which it says provides lower jitter, greater accuracy and higher voltage resolution than analogue triggers found on similar products.
