Since 1991 we have been supplying the world with test and measurement equipment. At Pico we realize that your choice of test accessories can be almost as important as your choice of test equipment. Here you can purchase a variety of test and measurement accessories quickly and securely online.

PicoScope 6000E Series MSO pod, 8 channels

The PicoScope 6000E Series MSO capability consists of a detachable active MSO pod, powered by the scope, with eight permanently attached flying leads terminating in MSO probes for connection to the circuit under test. The MSO pod connects to either of two digital interface ports on the scope front panel using a 0.5 m digital interface cable. All PicoScope 6000E Series models support the MSO pod.

Features

  • 8 digital inputs per pod
  • 500 MHz bandwidth, 1 Gb/s
  • 5 GS/s sampling on 16 digital channels
  • 1 ns minimum pulse width
  • Minimal load on the device under test
  • Selection of ground clips for easy connection to 2-row, 2.54 mm (0.1")-pitch headers
  • Ground leads and mini test hooks included

Ground leads and clips

The TA369 MSO pod includes a range of ground clips and leads. To achieve the highest performance with high-speed signals, connect the ground terminal of each probe to the circuit ground as close as possible to the signal under test. The ground clips enable the probe to fit on a pair of 0.1“-pitch header pins and are supplied as 1-way, 4-way and 8-way blocks. The ground leads fit on standard header pins. Any ungrounded MSO probes will share the ground path with grounded probes, lowering performance and causing crosstalk between digital channels.
