The new PicoScope 2205 MSO is our first mixed–signal oscilloscope. It’s a compact USB–powered device that enables you to view 2 analog and 16 digital signals on your PC’s screen.
The scope uses the well–established PicoScope software, so if you’re an experienced PicoScope operator there’s no need to learn a new user interface. The analog inputs work like those on any other PicoScope, and the digital inputs have edge and level–sensitive triggering options with programmable thresholds.
Here are the main features of the PicoScope 2205 MSO:

Application note: high–resolution scopes
How much resolution do you need from your scope? We test three Pico oscilloscopes: the 8–bit PicoScope 2205, the 12–bit PicoScope 4423 and the 16–bit PicoScope 4262. The results show how resolution affects the sensitivity of spectrum measurements.
PicoLog Ethernet Auto–Reconnect
If you’re using PicoLog with an Ethernet Data Logger like the PT-104 or CM3, you might want it to recover automatically from network disconnections. PicoLog can auto’reconnect to Ethernet devices if the option is set inFile > Preferences > Auto Reconnect. This option is disabled by default to save CPU resources.
PicoScope Phase Angle Measurement
You can use a Math Channel in PicoScope to measure the phase difference between two inputs. The formula you need is posted on our forum under “PicoScope 4424 Phase Angle Measurements”. Be sure to read the advice about using rulers to confine the measurement to the stable part of the math channel.
