Pico Technology: new 2 and 4 channel sampling oscilloscopes in 25 GHz model family

Pico Technology has increased the bandwidth of its PicoScope 9300 family of sampling oscilloscopes with two new 25 GHz models.  The USB-controlled Sampling Oscilloscope, available only from Pico, stands as one of very few low-cost, high-integrity options for viewing and measuring RF and microwave signals, paths and networks. Sampling Oscilloscopes are the cost-effective solution to today’s proliferation of gigabit-per-second datastreams and their copper, wireless and optical fiber interconnect.

The new 2 and 4 channel 25 GHz models, just added to the existing 20 GHz PicoScope 9300 Series, now support fifth harmonic capture for data up to including 10 Gb/s, and third harmonic capture up to 16 Gb/s. These rates, and others in between, are increasingly found in Ethernet, Thunderbolt, USB 3.1, PCIe 4, Rapid I/O, e-SATA, OC-192 / STM-64 and OC-256. All have transmission lines, cables, components, transmitters and receivers that need pre-compliance testing and characterization.

For most of us, owning a real-time scope with 25 GHz bandwidth is unrealistic, with prices starting from $200,000.  Renting is usually the only option but even that can cost over $15,000 per month! “Low cost” means that you can have a 25 GHz Sampling Oscilloscope, on your bench every day or where and when you need it, for the equivalent of 1 month’s rent of a 25 GHz real-time box. 

Having chosen your oscilloscope, you will want to probe your multiple broadband signals in-system and with minimal invasion of the measurement using a low-invasive, high-performance PicoConnect 900 probes. Uniquely configured as interchangeable AC or DC coupled probe heads in three division ratios (÷5, ÷10 and ÷20), these are ideally suited to in-system probing of analog, pulse, impulse and high-speed serial data streams. They will interface to any other instrument type with 50 Ω inputs and likely outperform similar but manufacturer-locked accessories that you may have.

All PicoScope 9300 Sampling Oscilloscopes can now be upgraded, free of charge, to full touchscreen operation with the latest PicoSample 3 software. PicoSample 3.25 also includes new masks for USB 2.0 and USB 3.1 Gen1 and Gen2.
