Pico at EDS 2022

Pico Technology were hosted at the Engineering Design Show 2022. Here's a little recap of our stall and a short walk-around we did! We got the chance to meet many of our customers and potential new customers; all-in-all it was a productive and fun day out!

Our video series, PicoByte, is a monthly top-tip video series on all things Pico Test & Mesurement. Covering a variety of topics from PicoScope 7 Early Access Tips and Tricks to byte-sized tutorials on hardware debugging.

AC Coupling on an oscilloscope is an often misunderstood feature; sometimes it's not used because it's not fully understood how it can help, and other times it's used when it does not need to be. This poses the following question: what is AC Coupling, and when can it be used?

This month's PicoByte offers a brief explanation of AC Coupling. Meanwhile, check out our article for a more in-depth explanation.


Pico wins 'Best Oscilloscope Manufacturer of the Year'

We are excited to let you know that Pico Technology has been awarded the 'Best Oscilloscope Manufacturer of the Year' award by Electronic Manufacturers Media in India. Hari and Ganapati Hegde, the president of Technocomm which is our biggest distributor in India, attended the award ceremony and received the award representing Pico. 

Our anniversary celebrations!

We've had plenty of cause to celebrate at Pico this month! This year, we have been delighted to hold a 30th anniversary celebration; this was delayed by a year due to COVID, and it was lovely to finally bring the whole UK team together and reconnect.

Meanwhile, across the pond, our North American office celebrated its 10th anniversary. Craig Wheeler said: "1st October 2012 was the date the US office began operations. 10 years and two office moves later we are eating special, celebratory donuts!"

PicoScope 2000 Series

The entry level PicoScope 2000 Series offers outstanding value for money for those users looking for a portable entry level oscilloscope. Starting at just $165 / €139 / £115 for the PicoScope 2204A, the PicoScope 2000 Series shares the same software platform as our higher end oscilloscopes. It also offers a lot of the same functionality including up to 30 Serial Protocol decoders as standard depending on the model selected.  
The PicoScope 2000 Series is ideal for educational use and many universities and colleges have purchased a PicoScope for each engineering student. This allows students the flexibility to study flexibly both in the lab and remotely. Read about how the University of Leeds has taken advantage of this for their students here.
Full details on the PicoScope 2000 range can be found here.
