PicoScope 5000 Series: a Flexible Resolution USB Oscilloscope


Today’s electronic designs employ a wide range of signal types: analog, digital, serial (both high- and low-speed), parallel, audio, video, power distribution and so on. All need to be debugged, measured and validated to ensure that the device under test is functioning correctly and within specification.

PicoScope 5000 Series can handle a variety of signal types. Our FlexRes hardware employs multiple high-resolution ADCs at the input channels in different time-interleaved and parallel combinations; these optimize either the sampling rate to 1 GS/s at 8 bits, the resolution to 16 bits at 62.5 MS/s, or other combinations in between. You can select the most appropriate hardware resolution for the requirements of each measurement.

2 and 4 channel models are available, all featuring a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connection, providing lightning-fast saving of waveforms while retaining compatibility with older USB standards. The product is small and light, and operates silently thanks to its low-power, fanless design.

You can find out more about the specifications, features and capabilities of the PicoScope 5000 Series on our website.

PicoScope on the front page of Hackaday!

 
Did you know that our PicoScope 2000 Series Oscilloscope was recently featured on the front page of Hackaday? In a recent post, regular readers are treated to a three-part tutorial on decoding 433 MHz radio signals using an Arduino Uno, a Soundcard, a Raspberry Pi, and our own PicoScope 2208B.

The tutorial, written by Joonas Pihlajamaa of Code and Life, focuses on decoding the signals of a Nexa radio-controlled smart plug. This acts as a fascinating case study on 433 MHz radio signals; check it out for yourself here!
