Pico Technology extends range of PC-based mixed signal oscilloscopes

Pico Technology has announced the development of its PicoScope 6000E Series oscilloscopes with the launch of three new 4-channel models, each of which can be configured with 16 optional digital channels.

With bandwidths of 300 or 500 MHz, 8-bit or 8/10/12-bit Flexible Resolution and up to 4 GS deep capture memory, these products enhance the existing PicoScope 6000E portfolio, adding to the 8-channel models that were introduced earlier in the year.

With dimensions of 245 x 192 x 62 mm (9.7 x 7.6 x 2.5 inches), the 6000E Series oscilloscopes are able to fit easily on any workbench. Pico PC-based instruments are intended for engineers who need professional-grade test equipment that fits in limited available space, whether in a laboratory or at their home office.

A free-of-charge Software Development Kit (SDK) is also available to download enabling users to write their own applications around the PicoScope 6000E hardware. The SDK includes instrument drivers for Windows, macOS and Linux, and code examples in C, C#, C++ and Python.

Drivers are also provided to interface with popular third-party software packages such as Microsoft Excel, National Instruments LabVIEW and MathWorks MATLAB. Pico is an approved MathWorks Connections Program Partner with extensive in-house MATLAB developer experience.

Full capabilities of the PicoScope 6000E hardware are exposed to the programmer via the API, which enables development of virtually unlimited custom and OEM applications in scientific, research, industrial, automotive and power applications.
