Pico Oscilloscopes

PicoScope is primarily used to view and analyze real-time signals from PicoScope oscilloscopes and data loggers. PicoScope software enables analysis using FFT a spectrum analyzer, voltage-based triggers and the ability to save/load waveforms to disk.

PicoScope 2000 Series oscilloscopes

VIEW your waveform with a low-cost USB- powered and connected oscilloscope.
All standard PicoScope features are included: automatic measurements, serial decoding, persistence displays, mask limit testing, spectrum analysis, arbitrary waveform generator and more.
ANALYZE your waveform with a high-performance USB-powered and connected oscilloscope.
Deep memory allows you to capture over long time periods at high sampling rates. You can then zoom in on your data without having to recapture. This is essential when you need to analyze one-off events with detailed timing resolution.
The arbitrary waveform generator can store complex waveforms in its large memory buffer, allowing you to test your design with realistic inputs.
