Saelig Introduces PicoScope PS4000A Series of High Resolution 2/4/8 Channel 20MHz Oscilloscopes

These PC-based PicoScope oscillscopes provide up to 8 channels of 12-bit resolution for performing a wide range of precision measurement tasks on multiple inputs at the same time
Fairport, NY: Saelig Company, Inc. announces the PicoScope PS4000A Series of 20MHz USB 3.0-connected PC oscilloscopes providing two, four, or eight high-resolution analog channels. These portable scopes have a compact footprint with BNC connectors that accept all common probes and accessories. With a high vertical resolution of 12 bits, 20MHz bandwidth, 256MSa buffer memory, and a fast sampling rate of 80 MS/s, the PicoScope 4000A series has the advanced measurement power and functionality to provide precision results. The PicoScope 4000A Series is unlike conventional oscilloscopes with 8-bit resolution and limited capture memory, or card-based digitizers that require an expensive mainframe. The 12 bits of hardware resolution extends to 16 bits using the Resolution Enhancement mode. These scopes include a built-in Signal Generator / AWG, and a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface that both powers the instrument and delivers 480Mbit/s communications to the host PC.
PS4000A scopes can analyze serial buses such as UART, I2C, SPI, CAN and LIN plus control and driver signals without needing any additional software other than the complimentary PicoScope 6 package. The user interface with time- and frequency-domain waveform views provides automatic measurements of important waveform parameters for up to 1M waveform cycles with each triggered acquisition. PicoScope 6 software has an SDK that gives users direct programming control of the hardware for custom applications. These scopes also work with the PicoLog 6 data logging software for lower-speed long-duration captures.

With the provided software, it is easy to view audio, ultrasonic, vibration and power waveforms, analyze timing of complex systems, and perform a wide range of precision measurement tasks on multiple inputs at the same time. The 4000A series of oscilloscopes suits a wide range of electrical, mechanical, audio, Lidar, radar, ultrasonic, NDT, and predictive maintenance systems, providing precise measurements and analysis of repetitive or single-shot long-duration waveforms.

Made by Pico Technology, Europe’s award-winning test and measurement manufacturer, the PicoScope PS4000A Series is available now from Saelig Company, Inc. their USA technical distributor.

Common Design Pitfalls When Designing With Hall 2D Sensors And How To Avoid Them

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

This article discusses three widespread application issues in industrial and automotive end equipment – rotary encoding, in-plane magnetic sensing, and safety-critical – that can be solved more efficiently using devices with new features and higher performance. We will discuss in which end products these applications can be found and also provide a comparison with our traditional digital Hall-effect sensors showing how the new releases complement our existing portfolio.

Cutting the AI Power Cord: Technology to Enable True Edge Inference

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Maxim Integrated

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are exciting buzzwords in the world of electronic engineering today. But in order for artificial intelligence or machine learning to get into mainstream edge devices, we need to enable true edge inference. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kris Ardis from Maxim Integrated about the MAX78000 family of microcontrollers and how this new microcontroller family can help solve our AI inference challenges with low power, low latency, and a built-in neural network accelerator.
