Pico Technology Test & Measurement Newsletter
April newsletter

Working from home? You're in good company: take a look at how some of our staff are getting along with home working. While we're all practicing social distancing, Pico is open for business as usual, with a new initiative offering extra support from us to you. We're also focusing on the new probe positioning system, and there's a new PicoLog 6 Beta release, too.

There's always room for a PicoScope: image shows a desk with a laptop connected to a PicoScope 2204A. On the screen is a Persistence Mode view of two waveforms. The laptop's user is holding a mobile phone connected to a video chat. Also on the desk are a PCB, a child's drawing of a rainbow, a teddy bear, toy cars, building blocks and a cheese sandwich.

Life under lockdown certainly has its challenges. We can't solve them all for you, but we can at least help you to build a compact home test bench, because when space is at a premium, Pico products come into their own. Why not take some inspiration from Pico staff using their scopes while working from home?

Product focus: Probe positioning system
Probe positioning system in use
Pico's probe positioning system is an elegant solution to the age-old problem of only having two hands.

Flexible "gooseneck" arms hold your probes firmly in place, while strong magnets make sure there's no slipping on the highly polished baseplate.
Compatible with the P2056 500 MHz 10:1 passive probes, a full range of kits is available to suit all requirements.
