PicoScope® 9300 Series

USB Sampling Oscilloscopes

With up to 30 GHz bandwidth, the PicoScope 9300 sampling oscilloscopes address digital and telecommunications applications of 10 Gb/s and higher, microwave applications up to 25 GHz and timing applications with a resolution down to 64 fs. Optional 11.3 Gb/s clock recovery, optical to electrical converter or differential, deskewable time domain reflectometry sources (60 ps/7 V) complete a powerful, small-footprint and cost-effective measurement package.

Sampling Oscilloscopes to 30 GHz with TDR/TDT and Optical models

20 to 30 GHz electrical, 9.5 GHz optical, TDR/TDT, 2-channel and 4-channel, compact, portable, USB instruments.

These units occupy very little space on your workbench and are small enough to carry with your laptop for on-site testing, but that’s not all. Instead of using remote probe heads attached to a large bench-top unit, you can position the scope right next to the device under test. Now all that lies between your scope and the DUT is a short, low-loss coaxial cable. Everything you need is built into the oscilloscope, with no expensive hardware or software add-ons to worry about.

Key specifications

  • 15 TS/s (64 fs) sequential sampling
  • Up to 15 GHz prescaled, 2.5 GHz direct trigger and 11.3 Gb/s clock recovery

  • Eye and mask testing to 16 Gb/s with up to 223–1 pattern lock
  • Intuitive, touch-compatible Windows user interface
  • Comprehensive built-in measurements, histogramming and editable data mask library
  • Integrated, differential, deskewable TDR/TDT step generator

Typical applications

  • Telecom and radar test, service and manufacturing
  • Optical fiber, transceiver and laser testing
  • RF, microwave and gigabit digital system measurements
  • Radar bands I, G, P, L, S, C, X, Ku
  • Precision timing and phase analysis
  • Digital system design and characterization
  • Eye diagram, mask and limits test to 10 Gb/s
  • Ethernet, HDMI 1, HDMI 2, PCI, SATA, USB 2.0, USB 3.0
  • TDR/TDT analysis of cables, connectors, backplanes, PCBs and networks
  • Optical fiber, transceiver and laser test
  • Semiconductor characterization

Remember: the price you pay for your PicoScope Sampling Oscilloscope is the price you pay for everything – we don’t charge you for software features or updates.

High-bandwidth probes

The PicoConnect 900 Series low-impedance, high-bandwidth probes are ideal companions for the PicoScope 9400 Series, allowing cost-effective fingertip browsing of fast signals. Two series are available:
