Re: 5000 vs 4262 noise performance

I realize that the published noise specs include both the input front end noise and the ADC noise. But because the 5000 series has a scalable ADC architecture I do not fully understand which part of the architecture contributes most to the noise figures of the specification. Is the ADC or the front ...

5000 vs 4262 noise performance

For making an informed purchase decision, I am interested in comparing the noise performance of the 5000 series versus the 4262 when both are set to 16bit mode at the same input BW limit. According to the specs (I target 5242D for my calculations): 5242D specified noise: 70uVrms @2mV/div@60MHz 4262 ...

input BW-limit filter accessories

Hello, Could you recommend any (feed-through?) filters (e.g. 200KHz or 1MHz) for limiting the bandwidth at the oscilloscope input? They would be very useful for further increasing the ENOB (by decreasing the noise) in 2000 series (2206B) and also 5000 (5242D) series oscilloscopes when sampling low f...

Re: 5000D vs 5000B

Thank you for the response. Have there been any changes in the dependency between vertical resolution and min input sensitivity ? From the specs I understand that with 5000D a min sensitivity of 2mV/div is now possible in 16bit mode (14 bits resolution) whereas for 5000A/B, min sensitivity of 2mV/di...

5000D vs 5000B

Hello,

I can see that the new 5000D series is out.

Apart from the MSO option, the higher memory and the single usb3 port powering, are there any other revisions in terms of specifications versus the 5000B series?

Thanks in advance!

5242B powering / macbook pro

Hello, I am considering purchasing the picoscope 5242B and I would like to use it powered by usb. From the specs I can see that a dual usb connection is needed, however there is no specification on the dual usb cable length. My concern is that my macbook pro (13-inch, Early 2015) offers only two usb...

Re: Looking forward to stable Mac Version!

Hello,

any approximate time frame/dates regarding the next major release?

a stable and feature rich mac version would be a strong selling point for the picoscopes!

Re: Amplify AWG signal

You could perhaps try with the Aim-TTI WA301 (DC to 1MHz bandwidth, up to 30Vpp)
