Saelig Introduces PicoScope 9300 Sampling Oscilloscopes With 25GHz Bandwidth

Fairport, NY:  Saelig Company, Inc. announces that the Pico Technology PicoScope 9300 family of sampling oscilloscopes has been expanded with two new 25GHz models – the PicoScope 9301-25 and 9341-25 models.  These USB-controlled sampling oscilloscopes, designed for working with repetitive signals, are a low-cost alternative to extremely expensive high-end GHz benchtop scopes. The PicoScope 9300 series offers affordable high-integrity options for viewing and measuring RF and microwave signals, signal paths, and RF networks.  These high-speed sampling oscilloscopes are the cost-effective solution for working with gigabit-per-second data-streams and their copper, wireless and optical fiber interconnects.

These new two- and four-channel 25GHz models add to the existing 20GHz PicoScope 9300 Series, and can now support 5th harmonic capture for data speeds up to 10Gb/s, and 3rd harmonic capture for data-streams up to 16Gb/s. These rates are increasingly found in Ethernet, Thunderbolt, USB 3.1, PCIe 4, Rapid I/O, e-SATA, OC-192 / STM-64 and OC-256 situations. All of these technologies have transmission lines, cables, components, transmitters and receivers that need appropriate development tools for pre-compliance testing and characterization. Owning a real-time scope with a 25GHz bandwidth has usually been prohibitively expensive, but now engineers can have their own 25GHz sampling oscilloscope on any bench or wherever it is needed.

Probing multiple broadband signals in-system and with minimal signal disturbance is also often a challenge. So Pico Technology has designed some cost-effective, low-invasive, high-performance PicoConnect 900 probes to accompany the 9300 family of sampling scopes.  Uniquely configured as interchangeable AC- or DC-coupled probe heads in three division ratios (÷5, ÷10 and ÷20), these connecting devices are ideally suited for transparent in-system probing of analog, pulse, impulse and high-speed serial data streams.  They can also be used with other non-Pico instrument types that have 50 ohm inputs.

The PicoScope 9300 Sampling Oscilloscopes, when used with the appropriate PC, offer full touchscreen operation using the latest PicoSample 3 Software (provided free).  PicoSample 3.25 also includes new masks for USB 2.0 and USB 3.1 Gen1 and Gen2.

Made by Pico Technology, Europe’s award-winning oscilloscope adapter manufacturer, the new PicoScope 9301-25 and 9341-25 Sampling Oscilloscopes are now available now starting at under $20,000 from Saelig Company, Inc. their USA technical distributor.

In my post about Silexica ( Silexica: Mastering Multicore ) I said that I like to use planes as an analogy for cores in a multi-core system. As I said there: They haven't got appreciably faster but you can have lots of them. If you want to transport 10,000 people from Lo...
