Three PC-based oscilloscopes to take away

June 01, 2016 // By Julien Happich
This month, Pico Technology is giving away three PicoScope 2208B 100MHz Mixed Signal deep-memory Oscilloscopes (MSO), worth 859 Euros each, for EETimes Europe's readers to win.

Combining four instruments in one with two analog channels and 16 digital channels, the compact unit features an FFT spectrum analyzer, a function generator, an arbitrary waveform generator and a protocol decoder with support for 15 serial protocols. The PicoScope 2000B models come with up to 128MS of deep memory and fast waveform update rates to carry out advanced analysis of waveforms, including serial decoding and plotting frequency against time.

The instrument comes with the PicoScope 6 software, taking advantage of the display size and resolution and processing power of your PC to display four analog signals, a zoomed view of two of the signals (undergoing serial decoding), and a spectrum view of a third, all at the same time. Unlike a conventional benchtop oscilloscope, the size of the display is limited only by the size of your computer monitor. The software is also easy to use on touch-screen devices, so you can pinch to zoom and drag to scroll.
