PicoScopes and USB Type-C


You may have noticed USB Type-C connectors appearing on some new devices. PicoScope oscilloscopes and PicoLog data loggers are compatible with these connectors: just use the blue USB cable provided with your device in conjunction with our TA285 USB Type-C to Type-A adaptor.

You don't need to know about the complexities of USB Type-C cables and power supply currents when connecting a PicoScope or PicoLog device to your computer, but for users of other peripherals we have written a brief guide. For more information on USB Type-C and its compatibility with peripherals, see Will my Pico oscilloscope or data logger work with a USB Type-C port? [2016-06]
