PicoScope 9300 Series
USB Sampling Oscilloscopes
At 20 GHz bandwidth, the PicoScope 9300 sampling oscilloscopes address digital and telecommunications applications of 10 Gb/s and higher, microwave applications up to 20 GHz and timing applications with a resolution down to 64 fs. Optional 11.3 Gb/s clock recovery, optical to electrical converter or differential, de-skewable time domain reflectometry sources (40 ps/200 mV or 60 ps/6 V) complete a powerful, small-footprint and cost-effective measurement package.
Often remarked to be the best sampling oscilloscope user interface there is, the PicoSample 3 software presents as few or as many feature controls as you need in your application. Choose to maximize trace display or dock control menus at a single touch of the screen or mouse click, dependent on the task and preference. PicoSample 3 takes full advantage of HD, wide-ratio and touch displays and projections.
Choose to control offset numerically and the dual timebase displays as the traditional "Delay", "A", "A intensified by B", or "B", or click, drag and zoom, whichever you prefer.
Display your waveforms on single, dual or quad graticules; persisted, colour or intensity graduated, vectored or not. Size and scroll the measurements and statistics display.
The PicoScope 9300 Series scopes quickly measure well over 100 parameters, so you don’t need to count graticules or estimate the waveform’s position. Up to ten simultaneous measurements or four statistics measurements are possible. The measurements conform to IEEE standard definitions.
A dedicated frequency counter shows signal frequency at all times, regardless of measurement and timebase settings.
The PicoScope 9000 Series supports up to four simultaneous mathematical combinations and functional transformation of acquired waveforms.
You can select any of the mathematical functions as a math operator to act on the operand or operands. A waveform math operator is a function of either one or two sources.
A histogram is a probability distribution that shows the distribution of acquired data from a source within a user-definable histogram window. The information gathered by the histogram is used to perform statistical analysis on the source.
Histograms can be constructed on waveforms on either the vertical or horizontal axes. The most common use for a vertical histogram is measuring and characterizing noise on displayed waveforms, while the most common use for a horizontal histogram is measuring and characterizing jitter on displayed waveforms.
The PicoScope 9300 Series scopes quickly measure more than 40 fundamental parameters used to characterize non-return-to-zero (NRZ) signals and return-to-zero (RZ) signals. Up to ten parameters can be measured simultaneously, with statistics also shown.
The measurement points and levels used to generate each parameter can be shown dynamically.
Eye-diagram analysis can be made even more powerful with the addition of mask testing, as described below. The PicoScope 9000 Series also includes an 11.3 Gbps pattern sync trigger for averaging eye diagrams.
Eye-diagram masks are used to give a visual indication of deviations from a standard waveform. There is a library of over 150 built-in masks which now includes USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 (see specifications), and custom masks can be automatically generated and modified using the graphical editor. A specified margin can be added to any mask to enable stress-testing.
The display can be gray-scaled or color-graded to aid in analyzing noise and jitter in eye diagrams. There is also a statistical display showing the number of failures in both the original mask and the margin.
All PicoScope 9000 Series oscilloscopes can perform up to four fast fourier transforms of input signals using a range of windowing functions. FFTs are useful for finding crosstalk problems, finding distortion problems in analog waveforms caused by nonlinear amplifiers, adjusting filter circuits designed to filter out certain harmonics in a waveform, testing impulse responses of systems, and identifying and locating noise and interference sources.
A comprehensive programmer’s guide is supplied, which details every function of the ActiveX control.
The SDK can control the oscilloscope over the USB or the LAN port.
