Power. portability and performance

The PicoScope 3000 Series USB-powered PC oscilloscopes are small. light. and portable and can easily slip into a laptop bag while offering a range of high performance specifications.

These oscilloscopes offer 2 or 4 analog channels. plus 16 digital channels and a built in function / arbitrary waveform generator.

Supported by the advanced PicoScope 6 software. these devices offer an ideal. cost-effective package for many applications. including embedded systems design. research. test. education. service. and repair.


High bandwidth and sampling rate

Despite a compact size and low cost. there is no compromise on performance with bandwidths up to 200 MHz. This bandwidth is matched by a real-time sampling rate of up to 1 GS/s. allowing detailed display of high frequencies. With a real time sampling rate of five times the input bandwidth. PicoScope 3000 Series oscilloscopes are well equipped to capture high-frequency signal detail. For repetitive signals. the maximum effective sampling rate can be boosted to 10 GS/s by using Equivalent Time Sampling (ETS) mode.


Deep memory

The PicoScope 3000 Series offers memory depths up to 512 million samples. more than any other oscilloscope in this price range.
deep memory oscilloscope

Other oscilloscopes have high maximum sampling rates. but without deep memory they cannot sustain these rates on long timebases. Using its 512 MS buffer. the PicoScope 3406D can sample at 1 GS/s all the way down to 50 ms/ div (500 ms total capture time).

Managing all this data calls for some powerful tools. There’s a set of zoom buttons. plus an overview window that lets you zoom and reposition the display by simply dragging with the mouse or touchscreen. Zoom factors of several million are possible. Other tools such as the waveform buffer. mask limit test. serial decode and hardware acceleration work with the the deep memory making the PicoScope 3000 one of the most powerful oscilloscopes on the market.


Mixed–signal capability / Logic Analyzer

The PicoScope 3000 Series Mixed-Signal Oscilloscopes (MSOs) include 16 digital inputs alongside the standard 2 or 4 analog channels. so that you can view your digital and analog signals simultaneously.

The digital inputs of your PicoScope 3000 MSO can be displayed individually or in arbitrary groups labeled with binary. decimal or hexadecimal values. A separate logic threshold from -5 V to +5 V can be defined for each 8–bit input port. The digital trigger can be activated by any bit pattern combined with an optional transition on any input. Advanced logic triggers can be set on either the analogue or digital input channels. or both to enable complex mixed–signal triggering.

The digital inputs bring extra power to the serial decoding options. You can decode serial data on all analogue and digital channels simultaneously. giving you up to 20 channels of data. You can for example decode multiple SPI. I2C. CAN bus. LIN bus and FlexRay signals all at the same time!


Arbitrary waveform and function generator

All units have a built-in function generator (sine. square. triangle. DC level. white noise. PRBS etc). 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.

Trigger tools allow one or more cycles of a waveform to be output when various conditions are met such as the scope triggering or a mask limit test failing.

The PicoScope 3000 Series D models also include an arbitrary waveform generator. Waveforms can be created or edited using the built-in AWG editor. imported from oscilloscope traces. or loaded from a spreadsheet.


Advanced Digital triggers

The majority of digital oscilloscopes sold today still use an analog trigger architecture based on comparators. This can cause time and amplitude errors that cannot always be calibrated out. The use of comparators often limits the trigger sensitivity at high bandwidths.

In 1991 we pioneered the use of fully digital triggering using the actual digitized data. This technique reduces trigger errors and allows our oscilloscopes to trigger on the smallest signals. even at the full bandwidth. Trigger levels and hysteresis can be set with high precision and resolution.

The reduced re-arm delay provided by digital triggering. together with segmented memory. allows the capture of events that happen in rapid sequence. At the fastest timebase. rapid triggering can capture a new waveform every 2 microseconds until the buffer is full. The mask limit testing function helps to detect waveforms that fail to meet your specifications.

As well as the standard range of triggers found on all oscilloscopes. the PicoScope 3000 Series offers an industry-leading set of advanced triggers including pulse width. windowed and dropout triggers to help you capture the data you need.


USB connectivity

The USB connection not only allows high-speed data acquisition and transfer. but also makes printing. copying. saving. and emailing your data from the field quick and easy. USB powering removes the need to carry around a bulky external power supply. making the kit even more portable for the engineer on the move.

PicoScope 3000 Series mixed signal oscilloscopes feature a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connection. making the already-optimized process of data transfer and waveform update rates even faster. Further benefits of a USB 3.0 connection include faster saving of waveforms and faster gap-free continuous streaming of up to 125 MS/s when using the SDK. while the scope is still backward- compatible with older USB systems.
