PicoScope 5444A

The scope is really good.  Having the variable resolution is super and price is good.  I purchased the scope for the maths channels being able to integrate, show frequency etc which is exceptional in this price class.  An extra bonus is the abilty to do FRA and measure components with the scope.  The software takes a lot of getting used to if you are used to a benchtop scope, however it gets better with every update.  The maximum samples is limited by many factors, including resolution, no channels and sample spped.  At full samples speed and 2 channel max samples is 12Mbit, with 4 channels this goes down to 6MB, far away from the theoetical maximum.  Another issue is Deskew can only be done by adding a maths channels which tends to slow down the software and clog up the screen.

I purchased a 5243A specifically to receive radar returns for a bespoke ice penetrating radar system. I’d never used an oscilloscope before but the simplicity of the hardware and the supporting software and guidance allowed me to use it ‘in anger’ immediately in the field.

The portability and robustness of this unit allowed me to ‘hump it in’ over a period of days up to a remote glacier before extended field use. It performed flawlessly in harsh conditions on the glacier and I’m hungry for further opportunities to use this device.

Serial Decoding & AWG.
This scope is brill. I purchased the 5444B for field service work on serial machine tool encoders. It captured the serial request signal and after returning to workshop. I could use the AWG function with an adaptor interface (using differential line drivers) to make the encoder reply and then use the serial decoding to test the results. I would recommend this model to any field service engineer.
