Pico Technology Test & Measurement Newsletter
Welcome to the May newsletter

New 4-channel PicoScope 6000E Series oscilloscopes are out today! We and our distributors are taking orders as usual, so why not take a look?

In other news, PicoVNA now connects to Cadence AWR and Optenni Lab. We meet Dave and find out about his problems with probes, and also learn how to get started with PicoLog 6 and a Raspberry Pi. Speaking of PicoLog 6, there's a new stable release out this month, too!

If you're working from home, show us your setup and help fight Covid‑19.

The PicoVNA 106 Vector Network Analyzer now connects to the Cadence AWR Microwave Office and Optenni Lab CAD design environments, in a move that will benefit microwave and antenna design as well as educational use.

Support for Microwave Office comes in the form of a freely downloadable AWR Design Environment wizard, while Optenni Lab (version 4.3 SP5 and later) directly interfaces to the PicoVNA 2 DLL.

Designed within Microwave Office and supplied with the MWO project file, our Network Metrology Training kit enables students to experience the entire Design – Simulate – Implement – Validate cycle, and compare and use real-world measurements in their CAD environments.

Video: This is Dave... A probe positioning system story
Meet Dave. Dave is an electronic engineer who's just bought a nice new 8-channel PicoScope. He's just discovered a slight problem, though...

Like most of us, Dave only has one pair of hands, but the PCB he wants to test has eight signals he wants to monitor (hence the 8-channel scope).

Will Dave probe his circuit? Will he ever be able to use his new scope? Is there an answer that doesn't involve calamari? Watch this video to find out...

Video: Raspberry Pi setup help
Running PicoLog 6 on a Raspberry Pi opens up a world of remote data logging possibilities, but some people find the prospect of setting up the Pi daunting.

Never fear! In this video, Kieran Winstanley guides you through the process, from installing Raspbian Buster to collecting data from your logger.

Software update
PicoLog 6.1.16 is out now.

This stable release includes all the features from last month's beta release. We've improved the user interface, with simpler capture controls, and you can now export to HDF5 format (handy for MATLAB users or anyone else wanting to manage especially large amounts of data).

See the release notes for more information.
