Pico Technology Test & Measurement Newsletter
March 2021

This month sees two new oscilloscopes join the PicoScope 9400 family of 5 GHz and 16 GHz sampler-extended real-time oscilloscopes.

We also have software info for popular oscilloscope plug-in FRA4PicoScope and for our PicoVNA vector network analyzers, and you can sign up for this month's webinar or catch up on the last one.

2-channel SXRTOs are here!

Stack of PicoScope 9400 Series SXRTOs. Top to bottom: PicoScope 9402-05, 9402-16, 9404-05 and 9404-16.
The PicoScope 9400 Series is a range of sampler-extended real-time oscilloscopes (SXRTOs), ideally suited to repetitive or clock-derived signals.

Like the existing 4-channel models, the PicoScope 9402-05 and 9402-16 feature 12-bit resolution. They also benefit from a real-time sampling rate of 500 MS/s per channel, extendable to 2.5 TS/s with random equivalent-time sampling.

From US$10,795 / €9095 / £7895
This new video explores pulse and impulse measurements on all four of the PicoScope 9400 Series SXRTOs.

Presented by Pico's RF Business Development Manager, Mark Ashcroft.

Pico webinar series

LIVE WEBINAR: The devil is in the detail – looking beyond oscilloscope banner specifications
Debugging modern electronic system designs is challenging for engineers who aren’t equipped with the latest tools. This webinar will look at the capabilities of the latest PicoScope PC-based oscilloscopes that help to quickly expose difficult-to-find circuit anomalies. Identification of glitches, timing errors, and signal-to-noise problems is vital to ensure correct and reliable operation of a system design.

Hosted by Trevor Smith, Pico's Business Development Manager for Test & Measurement, this webinar will include three demonstrations that illustrate common design problems. We will show how the latest PicoScope FlexRes® oscilloscopes can be used to observe, capture and analyze circuit (mis)behavior – the "devil in the detail"!

FRA4PicoScope updated

Bode plot generated in FRA4PicoScope
A new version of the popular frequency response analysis (FRA) app, FRA4PicoScope is available, and now supports the following models:
  • PicoScope 6000E Series 
  • PicoScope 4000A Series
  • PicoScope 4444 (requires external signal generator)
FRA4PicoScope was developed by Aaron Hexamer, a member of the Pico Technology Test & Measurement Forum, and is suitable for Windows PCs. It provides FRA capability for most PicoScope instruments, outputting a Bode plot of gain in decibels and phase in degrees.

Please note that this application requires PicoSDK to be installed on your computer.
 

Did you know...

PicoVNA 108 8.5 GHz vector network analyzer
...you can control both the PicoVNA 106 and 108 vector network analyzers in NI LabVIEW?

Both the PicoVNA2 and PicoVNA3 drivers support 32-bit and 64-bit operation.

You'll find the most up-to-date repository of example code on our GitHub organization page.
