PicoScope 5000

Product Description

Continuing to push the limits of PC oscilloscope design Pico Technology have used reconfigurable ADCs to offer a choice of 8-bit to 16-bit resolutions in a single product. Using a significantly different architecture to most digital oscilloscopes the PicoScope 5000 series is able to apply multiple high-resolution ADCs to the input channels in different series and parallel combinations to boost either the sampling rate or the resolution and producing unmatched accuracy.

As well as flexible resolution, these oscilloscopes have ultra-deep memory buffers of up to 512 MS to allow long captures at high sampling rates. They also include, as standard, advanced software features such as serial decoding, mask limit testing and segmented memory. Most USB-powered oscilloscopes have real-time sampling rates of only 100 or 200 MS/s, but the PicoScope 5000 Series offers up to 1 GS/s, and a maximum bandwidth of 200 MHz. Equivalent time sampling (ETS) mode can be used to further boost the sampling rate to 10 GS/s for a more detailed view of repetitive signals.

"This is the world’s first oscilloscope with truly flexible resolution achieved by serial interleaved ADCs, a new technology in our market place. The new 5000 Series captures a huge and unique application envelope in a high performance, uniquely flexible and cost effective solution."
Trevor Smith, Business Development Manager, Pico Technology

Flexible Hardware Resolution, from 8 to 16 bits

Most digital oscilloscopes gain their high sampling rates by interleaving multiple 8-bit ADCs. The PicoScope 5000 scopes have a significantly different architecture to most digital oscilloscopes to dramatically improve sampling rate or the resolution.

Arbitrary waveform and function generator

Built-in function generator (sine, square, triangle, DC level). As well as basic controls to set level, offset and frequency, more advanced controls allow you to sweep over a range of frequencies. Combined with the spectrum peak hold option this makes a powerful tool for testing amplifier and filter responses.

Portability

Pico Technology oscilloscopes are small, light and portable. In 2-channel mode the 5000 Series scopes can be powered from USB only, making them ideal for the engineer on the move. The external power supply is only needed when operating more than 2 channels.

High bandwidth, high sampling rate

Most USB-powered oscilloscopes have real-time sampling rates of only 100 or 200 MS/s, but the PicoScope 5000 Series offers up to 1 GS/s, and a maximum bandwidth of 200 MHz. Equivalent time sampling (ETS) mode can be used to further boost the sampling rate to 10 GS/s for a more detailed view of repetitive signals.

Digital triggering

Fully digital triggering using the actual digitized data reduces trigger errors and allows 5000 series oscilloscopes to trigger on the smallest signals, even at the full bandwidth. Reduces re-arm delay and combined with the segmented memory, allows the triggering and capture of events that happen as fast as 10,000 waveforms in under 20 milliseconds.

Huge buffer memory

Up to 512 million samples, more than any other oscilloscope in this price range. Each captured waveform is stored in a segmented buffer so you can rewind and review up to 10,000 previous waveforms. A mask can be applied to hide waveforms that are not of interest.
