I am considering purchasing some of the PICOscopes to update our lab. At present we are pretty short of scopes and I must consider these PC based scopes.
To save time I would appreciate some information and guidelines on your range. The current scope that we all fight over is excellent for our needs (Lecroy 9345AM 2Gs/s 500Mhz). We use this mailnly for digital signal capture (20Mhz), low noise amplifier and filter characterisation and capture, instrumentation measurements and triggering on complex and high speed arbitrary waveforms, sometimes very low amplitudes (no less than 20mV). The Lecroy does not have the FFT feature, but we have written one for it via a pc. How close is the new 300 series to the Lecroy or similar scopes.
Secondly For general instrumentation and digital capture upto 20Mhz, what will be the best option for us. Please bear in mind that the function of the swept frequency/peak hold function is very useful to us.
My second question is that RS only stock the ADC-212/100 can they get the 3000 series? (it makes it easier for purchasing via RS)
