5 & 16 GHz Sampler Extended Real Time Oscilloscopes
The PicoScope 9400 Series is a new class of SXRTO oscilloscopes that combine the benefits of real-time sampling, equivalent-time sampling and high analog bandwidth.
SXRTO (sampler-extended real-time oscilloscope)
9404-16: 16 GHz bandwidth, 22 ps transition time and 5 TS/s (0.2 ps resolution) equivalent-time sampling
9404-05: 5 GHz bandwidth, 70 ps transition time and 1 TS/s (1 ps resolution) equivalent-time sampling
Pulse, eye and mask testing down to 100 ps and up to 8 Gb/s
Four 12-bit 500 MS/s ADCs
Intuitive and configurable touch-compatible Windows user interface
Comprehensive built-in measurements, zooms, data masks and histograms
±800 mV full-scale input range into 50 Ω
±10 mV/div to ±0.25 V/div ranges provided by digital gain
Up to 250 kS trace length, shared between channels
Optional clock and data recovery (8 Gb/s on 9404-16, 5 Gb/s on 9404-05)
The PicoScope 9400 Series SXRTOs have four input channels up to 16 GHz with market-leading ADC, timing and display resolutions for accurately measuring and visualizing high-speed analog and data signals. They are ideal for capturing pulse and step transitions down to 22 ps, impulses down to 45 ps and clocks and data eyes to 8 Gb/s. Most high-bandwidth applications involve repetitive signals or clock-related data streams that can be readily analyzed by equivalent-time sampling (ETS). The SXRTO quickly builds ETS, persistence displays and statistics. It has a built-in full-bandwidth trigger on every channel, with pretrigger ETS capture to well above the Nyquist sampling rate. There are three acquisition modes—real time, ETS and roll—all capturing at 12-bit resolution into a shared memory of 250 kS.
The PicoSample 4 software is derived from our existing PicoSample 3 and PicoScope 9000 products, which together represent over ten years of development, customer feedback and optimization.
The high-resolution display can be resized to fit any window, filling 4k and even larger monitors or arrays of monitors. Four independent zoom channels can show you different views of your data down to a resolution of 0.2 ps. Most of the controls and status panels can be shown or hidden according to your application, allowing you to make optimal use of the display area.
The oscilloscope has a 2.5 GHz direct trigger that can be driven from any input channel, and a built-in prescaler can extend the trigger bandwidth to 5 GHz. The external prescaler on the 9404-16 extends this further to 16 GHz.
These compact units are small enough to place on your workbench close to the device under test. Now, instead of using remote probe heads attached to a large benchtop unit, all you need is a short, low-loss coaxial cable. Everything else you need is built into the oscilloscope, with no expensive hardware or software add-ons to worry about, and we don’t charge you for new software features and updates.
