PicoScope® 6000 Series
The fastest sampling, highest bandwidth, deepest memory and fastest waveform update rate of any USB oscilloscope on the market today.
It is good tool but it is necessary to increase the buffer capacity. The maximum 32 is really not enough.
Brilliant instrument, crap software, missing simple, but necessary features:
- There is channels labeling, stopper when the user is debugging complicated systems.
- Screen capture limited to almost unreadable png picture without any measurements on the screen, workaround is to use screen snipping… shame.
And so on…
And these negative comments are for years and never resolved.
We have been using Picoscope 6404D for quite some time, and are amazed by its accuracy and powerful emulations while working with numerous signal evaluations. The compatibility of this device with various EDA tools and software environment is appreciable. The device is easy to operate, cumbersome in space utilisation and highly useful and recommendable for any signal processing compilations and hardware design simulations.
Perfect Partner for Development of Encoder controlled Stepper Motor Actuators.
The 6403B/6404B or the current 6404D/C are the perfect partner for development of encoder controlled stepper motor actuators.
This type of device helped me a lot to develop the required hardware and software for rotation valves driven by own stepper motor driver circuitry with a encoder to find every valid positions in real-time in high speed.
Finding the best methods and filtering techniques for analyzing the encoder’s gaps and fixing the time offset caused by small but non-avoidable interrupt and software latency would never been possible so safely for whole encoder rotations in high accuracy with simpler DSOs with much less and non-segmented memory.
Since the included software is really stable, this type of device is a great tool for great tasks!
