I am one of the new user of PicoScope 3206B in Japan.
I have got it about a month ago. And it is my 4th oscilloscope, privately.
So at this point of time, I am trying to learn how to use it,
and also trying to understand the function and performance of it.
Start of all, I am trying to understand high frequency performance.
With ETS mode, using classic s-TTL, I wanted to try to check Tr,Tf of it.
Now, with a bit faster probe(texas-TX5430A 300MHz probe) Tr is almost
3nS and Tf is almost 2.3ns. they looks to be reasonable when I consider
the Tr/Tf of s-TTL. and waveform looks to be as I have expected.
I was so happy to see them.
However, Software (PicoScope 6 ver18.104.22.168 ... may be up-to-date one)
sometimes freezes. And, sometimes waveform looks to be very noisy on
ETS mode. In addition, sometimes waveform ends at about the half of the
screen. And start/stop button works strange.
PC that I used for test is Celeron 2GHz 1GByteMemory , WinXP SP3.
When I observe task manager, CPU is used 100% and PicoScope uses about
80% of them on ETS mode.
I have not observed such phenomenon except on ETS mode until now.
And, waveform sometimes not-noisy even of ETS mode, for just a save signal.
but, I need to re-start PicoScope 6 to escape from freeze or get good
So, I Hope to know how to solve such problems.
I can send *.psdata (including good ones)if needed, so please teach
me how to send them if I need to do so.
