Saelig Introduces PicoScope 6000E 4-Channel 750MHz/1GHz Mixed-Signal Oscilloscopes

The PicoScope 6000E 4-channel oscilloscope series has grown to include 750MHz and 1GHz active probe versions, bringing very high speed performance to the 4 analog channel, 16 digital channel oscilloscope world, with up to 5GSa/s real-time sampling and 4GSa deep memory
Fairport, NY: Saelig Company Inc. has introduced new 750MHz and 1GHz models to the 4-channel PicoScope 6000E Series, which provide 8 to 12 bits of vertical resolution, and up to 5GSa/s sampling rate with 4GSa memory, allowing these scopes to display single-shot pulses with up to 200ps time resolution. The four new 4-channel models added to the existing 6000E series are the PicoScope 750MHz 6405E and the 1GHz 6406E with 8-bit A/D resolution and the PicoScope 750MHz 6425E and the 1GHz 6426E with 8, 10, or 12 bits ‘FlexRes’ resolution. The screen update rate is a remarkable 300,000 waveforms per second. An active probe interface on these scopes allows the use of optional matching 750MHz or 1.3GHz Active Probes.
Pico ‘FlexRes’ flexible-resolution oscilloscopes allows the scope hardware to be configured to optimize either the sampling rate or the resolution: a fast (5GSa/s) 8-bit oscilloscope for looking at digital signals, a 10-bit oscilloscope for general-purpose use, or a high-resolution 12-bit oscilloscope for audio work and other sensitive analog applications. All models can operate with an extra 4 bits of resolution with the enhanced vertical resolution software feature — a digital signal processing technique built into PicoScope 6, the complementary software. Additionally, these oscilloscopes offer 8 or 16 optional digital channels when using the plug-in TA369 MSO pods, enabling accurate time-correlation of both analog and digital channels.
All 6000E models include a 14-bit 200MSa/s 50MHz arbitrary waveform generator (AWG). Its variable sample clock avoids the jitter on waveform edges seen with some fixed-clock generators and allows the generation of accurate frequencies down to 100μHz. AWG waveforms can be created or edited using the built-in editor, imported from oscilloscope traces, loaded from a spreadsheet or exported to a .csv file. The SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface and hardware acceleration ensure that the display is smooth and responsive, even with long captures. The free PicoScope 6 software includes decoders for over 20 serial protocols.
With up to a million points, PicoScope’s FFT spectrum display has excellent frequency resolution and a low noise floor. Easily display a spectrum plot of the active channels, with a maximum frequency of up to 500MHz. Using a 4K monitor attached to the controlling PC, PicoScope 6 software can display more than ten times the information of ordinary oscilloscopes. PicoScope software also supports dual monitors, allowing instrument control and waveforms displayed on one, and large data sets from serial protocol decoders or DeepMeasure results on the second monitor.
The 6000E series 4 or 8 analog channels have the timing and amplitude resolution that is needed to reveal challenging signal integrity problems such as glitches, runts, dropouts, noise, distortion and ringing. The 6000E oscilloscopes are ideal for design engineers working with signal processing, power electronics, mechatronics, and automotive designs, and for researchers and scientists working on multi-channel high-performance experiments in physics labs, particle accelerators, and similar facilities. The compact size (9.7 x 7.6 x 2.5 inches) of the PicoScope 6000E series means that it fits easily on any workbench, whether in the laboratory or for mobile or even home office engineering work, and at a much lower cost than an equivalent standalone benchscope.
Made by Pico Technology, Europe’s award-winning test and measurement manufacturer, all of the PicoScope 6000E oscilloscopes are available now from Saelig Company, Inc. their USA technical distributor.

Bring a "Can-Do" Attitude to Your Industrial Drone Design

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

Providing predictable and error-free communications, CAN bus networks have been the workhorse of the automobile industry for over thirty years. But they have recently found a new lease on life in other industrial applications, including drones. This design solution shows where and how CAN transceivers can be used in drone designs and explains why it is important that they come with high levels of electrical protection.

Keeping Your Linux Device Secure

Sponsored by Siemens Digital Industries Software

Embedded security is an ongoing process, not a one-time effort. Even after your design is shipped, security vulnerabilities are certain to be discovered - even in things like the operating system. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kathy Tufto from Mentor - a Siemens business, about how to make a plan to keep your Linux-based embedded design secure, and how to respond quickly when new vulnerabilities are discovered.
