Pico Technology launches updated PicoScope 9300

May 2017 Maintenance, Test & Measurement, Calibration

Pico Technologies has completed the update on the PicoScope 9300 Series. The PicoScope 9301 and PicoScope 9341 have received a bandwidth upgrade from 20 GHz to 25 GHz – highly significant because 25 GHz bandwidth allows 5 harmonic capture of data rates up to 10 Gbit/s. With serial data streams up to 10 Gbits/s now commonplace, standards such as HDMI 2.0, PCIe Gen2 and Gen3, GBit Ethernet and USB 3.1 Gen1 and Gen2, to name but a few, all have transmission lines, cables, components, transmitters and receivers which all need pre-compliance testing and characterisation.

Surely 25 GHz bandwidth is expensive?

Engineers need to test and validate their designs before compliance testing. For most companies, owning a real-time scope with 25 GHz bandwidth is unrealistic so long-term renting is often the only way forward. Users can now own the 25 GHz scope on the bench and have it in use every day, for the equivalent of one month’s rent of a 25 GHz real-time scope.

All PicoScope 9300 and 9300-25 sampling oscilloscopes use PicoSample 3 software. The latest releases, PicoSample 3.25, includes masks for USB 2.0 and USB 3.1 Gen1 and Gen2, and the user interface has been optimised for use with a mouse, touch screen PC or a laptop.

No oscilloscope measurement system is complete without a set of high performance probes, and Pico Technology now offers a full range of cost effective microwave and gigabit probes, ideally suited to low-invasive in system probing of analog, pulse, impulse and high speed serial data streams.
