PicoScope 6407

sku Product SKU:  PIC-6407

The PicoScope 6407 is a compact USB plug-in device that turns your PC or laptop into a 4-channel, high-speed digitizer. The PicoScope 6407 differs from the rest of the PC oscilloscopes in the PicoScope 6000 series in that it has high-bandwidth 50 Ω inputs with fixed ±100 mV input ranges and SMA connectors. Larger input signals can be accommodated with the use of external attenuators (see accessories).

  • 4 channels (fixed ±100 mV)
  • 1 GHz bandwidth
  • 1 GS buffer size
  • 5 GS/s real-time sampling
  • Segmented memory / rapid block trigger
  • Built-in function generator/AWG
  • Drivers and SDK included (Windows, Linux, Mac)
  • PicoScope application software included

High speed data acquisition

BEST-IN-CLASS BANDWIDTH, SAMPLING RATE AND MEMORY DEPTH

With a 1 GHz bandwidth complemented by a real-time sampling rate of 5 GS/s, the PicoScope 6407 can display single-shot pulses with 200 ps time resolution.

The 1-gigasample buffer on the PicoScope 6407 can hold two 100 ms captures at the maximum sampling rate of 5 GS/s. The PicoScope 6407 is suited to a wide range of high-speed applications including:

  • Radar / Lidar / Sonar
  • Semiconductor test
  • Production line test
  • Signals intelligence (SIGINT)
  • Physics research
  • Medical imaging
  • Non-destructive test

High speed data acquisition

HIGH-SPEED DATA ACQUISITION AND DIGITIZING

The software development kit (SDK) allows you to write your own software and includes drivers for Microsoft Windows and beta drivers for Apple Mac (OS X) and Linux (including Raspberry Pi).

Example code shows how to interface to third-party software packages such as Microsoft Excel, National Instruments LabVIEW and MathWorks MATLAB. 

The drivers support USB data streaming, a mode which captures gap-free continuous data over USB direct to the PC’s RAM or hard disk at rates of over 10 MS/s and capture size is limited only by available PC storage. Sampling rates in streaming mode are subject to PC specifications and application loading.

ADVANCED DIGITAL TRIGGERS

The majority of digital oscilloscopes still use an analog trigger architecture based on comparators. This causes time and amplitude errors that cannot always be calibrated out and often limits the trigger sensitivity at high bandwidths.

In 1991 Pico pioneered the use of fully digital triggering using the actual digitized data. This technique reduces trigger errors and allows our oscilloscopes to trigger on the smallest signals, even at the full bandwidth. Trigger levels and hysteresis can be set with high precision and resolution.

The reduced rearm delay provided by digital triggering, together with segmented memory, allows the capture of a new waveform every microsecond until the buffer is full.

The PicoScope 6000 Series offers an industry-leading set of advanced triggers including pulse width, runt pulse, windowed, logic and dropout.

arbitrary waveform editor

ARBITRARY WAVEFORM AND FUNCTION GENERATOR

The PicoScope 6407 has a built-in 20 MHz function generator (sine, square, triangle, DC level, white noise, PRBS and others). As well as basic controls to set level, offset and frequency, more advanced controls allow you to sweep over a range of frequencies. Combined with the spectrum peak hold option this makes a powerful tool for testing amplifier and filter responses.

Trigger tools allow one or more cycles of a waveform to be output when various conditions are met such as the scope triggering or a mask limit test failing.

The PicoScope 6407 also includes a 12 bit 200 MS/s arbitrary waveform generator (AWG). AWG waveforms can be created or edited using the built-in AWG editor, imported from oscilloscope traces, or loaded from a spreadsheet.

PicoScope 5000 Series

sku Product SKU:  PIC-5000-S

PicoScope 5000D MSO with hi-res waveform in the background

  • FlexRes 8 to 16-bit hardware resolution
  • Up to 200 MHz analog bandwidth
  • 1 GS/s sampling at 8-bit resolution
  • 62.5 MS/s sampling at 16-bit resolution
  • Up to 512 MS capture memory
  • 16 digital channels on MSO models
  • 130 000 waveforms per second
  • Built-in arbitrary waveform generator
  • 18 serial decoding protocols as standard
  • Up to 200 MHz spectrum analyzer

Today’s electronic designs employ a wide range of signal types: analog, digital, serial (both high- and low-speed), parallel, audio, video, power distribution and so on. All need to be debugged, measured and validated to ensure that the device under test is functioning correctly and within specification.

To handle this variety of signal types, PicoScope 5000D FlexRes hardware employs multiple high-resolution ADCs at the input channels in different time-interleaved and parallel combinations to optimize either the sampling rate to 1 GS/s at 8 bits, the resolution to 16 bits at 62.5 MS/s, or other combinations in between – you select the most appropriate hardware resolution for the requirements of each measurement.

2 and 4 channel models are available, all featuring a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connection, providing lightning-fast saving of waveforms while retaining compatibility with older USB standards. The PicoSDK® software development kit supports continuous streaming to the host computer at rates up to 125 MS/s. The product is small and light, and operates silently thanks to its low-power fanless design.

Supported by the free-of-charge and regularly updated PicoScope 6 software, the PicoScope 5000D Series offers an ideal, cost-effective package for many applications, including design, research, test, education, service and repair. 

What is FlexRes?

Pico FlexRes flexible resolution oscilloscopes allow you to reconfigure the scope hardware to increase either the sampling rate or the resolution. This means you can reconfigure the hardware to be either a fast (1 GS/s) 8-bit oscilloscope for looking at digital signals, or a high-resolution 16-bit oscilloscope for audio work and other analog applications. Whether you’re capturing and decoding fast digital signals or looking for distortion in sensitive analog signals, FlexRes oscilloscopes are the answer.

Deep capture memory

PicoScope 5000D Series oscilloscopes have waveform capture memories ranging from 128 to 512 million samples – many times larger than traditional benchtop scopes. Deep memory enables the capture of long-duration waveforms at maximum sampling speed. In fact, the PicoScope 5000D Series can capture waveforms over 500 ms long with 1 ns resolution. In contrast, the same 500 ms waveform captured by an oscilloscope with a 10 megasample memory would have just 50 ns resolution.

Deep memory can be useful in other ways too: PicoScope lets you divide the capture memory into a number of segments, up to a maximum of 10 000. You can set up a trigger condition to store a separate capture in each segment, with as little as 1 µs dead time between captures. Once you have acquired the data, you can step through the memory one segment at a time until you find the event you are looking for. Powerful tools are included to allow you to manage and examine all of this data. As well as functions such as mask limit testing and color persistence mode, PicoScope 6 software enables you to zoom into your waveform by a factor of several million. The Zoom Overview window allows you to easily control the size and location of the zoom area.

Other tools, such as DeepMeasureTM, serial decoding and hardware acceleration work with the deep memory, making the PicoScope 5000D Series among the most powerful oscilloscopes on the market.

PicoScope 5000D MSO showing both analog and digital channels

Mixed-signal models

The PicoScope 5000D MSO models add 16 digital channels to the 2 or 4 analog channels, enabling you to accurately time-correlate analog and digital channels. Digital channels may be grouped and displayed as a bus, with each bus value displayed in hex, binary or decimal or as a level (for DAC testing). You can set advanced triggers across both the analog and digital channels. The digital channels can also be used as sources for the serial decoders, giving up to 20 channels of data – for example decoding multiple SPI, I²C, CAN bus, LIN bus and FlexRay signals all at the same time.

Advanced digital triggering

The PicoScope 5000D Series offers an industry-leading set of advanced triggers including pulse width, runt pulse, windowed and dropout. 

PicoScope 5000D MSO logic trigger setup menu

The digital trigger available on MSO models allows you to trigger the scope when any or all of the 16 digital inputs match a user-defined pattern. You can specify a condition for each channel individually, or set up a pattern for all channels at once using a hexadecimal or binary value. You can also use the logic trigger to combine the digital trigger with an edge or window trigger on any of the analog inputs, for example to trigger on data values in a clocked parallel bus.

PicoScope 5000D built-in Arbitrary Waveform Generator

Arbitrary waveform and function generator

All PicoScope 5000D units have a built in 14-bit 200 MS/s arbitrary waveform generator (AWG). You can create and adapt arbitrary waveforms using the built-in editor, import them from existing oscilloscope traces, or load a waveform from a spreadsheet.

PicoScope 5000D Function Generator

The AWG can also act as a function generator with a range of standard output signals, including sine, square, triangle, DC level, white noise and PRBS. As well as the basic controls to set level, offset and frequency, more advanced controls allow you to sweep over a range of frequencies.

Combined with the spectrum peak hold option, this makes a powerful tool for testing amplifier and filter responses. Trigger tools allow you to output one or more cycles of a waveform when various conditions are met, such as the scope triggering or a mask limit test failing.

Power, portability and performance

Conventional eight-channel benchtop mixed-signal oscilloscopes occupy too much space on the bench and are too costly for most engineers working on next-generation designs. PicoScope 6000E Series oscilloscopes are small and portable, while offering the high-performance specifications required by engineers in the lab or on the move.

These oscilloscopes offer 8 analog channels, plus an optional 8 or 16 digital channels with the plug-in 8-channel TA369 MSO pods. The flexible high‑resolution display options enable you to view and analyze each signal in detail.

Supported by the PicoScope 6 software, these devices offer an ideal, cost-effective package for many applications, including design, research, test, education, service, and repair. PicoScope 6 is included in the cost of your scope, available for free download, with free updates, and can be installed on as many PCs as you want, including to view/analyze data off-line without the scope

High-end features as standard

Buying a PicoScope is not like making a purchase from other oscilloscope companies, where optional extras considerably increase the price. With our scopes, high-end features such as serial decoding, mask limit testing, advanced math channels, segmented memory, hardware-based timestamping and a signal generator are all included in the price.

To protect your investment, both the PC software and firmware inside the scope can be updated. Pico Technology has a long history of providing new features for free through software downloads. We deliver on our promises of future enhancements year after year. Users of our products reward us by becoming lifelong customers and frequently recommending us to their colleagues.

Powerful tools provide endless options

Your PicoScope is provided with many powerful tools to help you acquire and analyze waveforms. While these tools can be used on their own, the real power of PicoScope lies in the way they have been designed to work together.

As an example, the rapid trigger mode allows you to collect 10 000 waveforms in a few milliseconds with minimal dead time between them. Manually searching through these waveforms would be time-consuming, so just pick a waveform you are happy with and let the mask tools scan through for you. When done, the measurements will tell you how many have failed and the buffer navigator allows you to hide the good waveforms and just display the problem ones.

The screenshot here shows changing frequency versus time as a graph. Perhaps instead you want to plot changing duty cycle as a graph? How about outputting a waveform from the AWG and also automatically saving the waveform to disk when a trigger condition is met? With the power of PicoScope the possibilities are endless.

Product overview: ii910 Precision Acoustic Imager

Finally, an easy way to detect, locate and analyze partial discharge in one tool

Tired of spending too much time detecting partial discharge? Introducing the ii910 Precision Acoustic Imager, engineered to locate partial discharge, corona discharge as well as gas and vacuum leaks. The ii910 acoustic imaging camera's groundbreaking technology is a cost efficient, safe, effective, and comfortable tool for teams who inspect and maintain power distribution and industrial high voltage equipment.

The invisible threat….now you can see

Partial discharge is a serious issue that teams monitor everyday. Whether you are scanning insulators, transformers, switch gears or high voltage powerlines you need to be sure that you spot a problem quickly and early. Partial discharge that goes unchecked can cause blackouts, fires, explosions, or death from arc flashes. In addition to the danger that this can pose to the environment and human lives, it also has a very steep price tag. Having equipment go down can cost millions of dollars per hour and studies have shown that a single data center outage could cost as much as $8,851 per minute. On top of this, the Department of Energy estimated that outages cost the US economy $150 billion annually.

Key areas to scan for PD

  • Insulators
  • Transformers
  • High voltage powerlines
  • Switch gears
  • Arrestors
  • Busbars
  • High voltage coils
  • Breakers
  • Capacitors

Do it fast, Do it safe

The ii910 is the all-in-one tool you have been looking for when it comes to all of your leak and PD issues. Everything you need is right at your fingertips. Quickly scan the area or environment and get all the pictures/videos you need with the simple one button capture and large 7” touchscreen LCD. No additional tools or equipment needed. Without cumbersome secondary cables or devices needed, you have full mobility and greater flexibility to swap between detection of the leak/PD and fixing the leak/PD.
