The PicoScope 6000 Series oscilloscope has a 250 MHz to 500 MHz analog bandwidth that is complemented by a real-time sampling rate of 5 GS/s. Moreover, the PicoScope 6000 Series oscilloscope can display single-shot pulses with 200 ps time resolution. As for the Equivalent time sampling (ETS) mode, it boosts the maximum sampling rate to 50 GS/s, giving an even finer timing resolution of 20 ps for repetitive signals.
To guarantee the easy retrieval and storage of waveforms, the PicoScope 6000 Series has a deep buffer memory where, through the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface, you are assured of smooth and responsive displays with long captures. As a matter of fact, the 2 gigasample buffer on the PicoScope 6404D can hold two 200 ms captures at the maximum sampling rate of 5 GS/s. In addition, to help manage all this data, PicoScope can zoom up to 100 million times using a choice of two zoom methods. This thanks to zoom buttons as well as an overview window that lets you zoom and reposition the display by simply dragging with the mouse.
Review of Key specifications
Every model includes a built-in DC to 20 MHz function generator with sine, square, triangle and DC waveforms through a built-in 12 bit, 200 MS/s arbitrary waveform generator. With this feature, you can import arbitrary waveforms from data files or create and modify them using the built-in graphical AWG editor. This is buttressed by an easy retrievability of waveforms through color persistence modes, which enables one to see old and new data superimposed with new data in a brighter color or shade. Accordingly, this makes it easy to see glitches and dropouts and to estimate their relative frequency.
To enable high-speed data acquisition, the drivers and software development kit supplied allows you to write your own software or interface to popular third-party software packages. This means that when the 2 GS buffer memory of the PicoScope 6404D isn’t enough, the drivers can not only support data streaming, but also capture gap-free continuous data over the USB 3.0 port directly to the PC’s RAM at over 150 MS/s. Finally, for analog and digital low-pass filtering, each input channel has its own digital low-pass filter with independently adjustable cut-off frequency from 1 Hz to the full scope bandwidth. This enables you to reject noise on selected channels while viewing high bandwidth signals on the others.
