The 6 oscilloscopes in the PicoScope 6000 Series from Pico Technology, St. Neots, U.K., offer 4 channels with a max. sampling rate of 5 Gsps, a range of input bandwidths from 250–500 MHz, buffer memory depths from 128 Msps to 1 Gsps, and either a built-in function generator or built-in arbitrary waveform generator. Suited for use by engineers and technicians, the devices are supplied with software that includes oscilloscope and spectrum analyzer functions such as serial decoding, mask limit testing, segmented memory, and advanced triggers; persistence displays with fast waveform update rates, math channels, automatic measurements with statistics, programmable alarms, and decoding of I2C, UART/RS-232, SPI, CAN, and LIN bus signals; and advanced triggering modes.
