Picoscope 2205 MSO

Wilt u analoge en digitale signalen tegelijkertijd meter dan is de 2205MSO de scope voor u.

•2 analogue channels
•16 digital channels
•Measure analogue signals up to 25 MHz
•Measure digital signals up to 100 MHz
•200 MS/s mixed–signal sampling
•Built–in function generator and arbitrary waveform generator

With the PicoScope 2205 mixed–Signal Oscilloscope (MSO) it is possible for you to measure both analogue and digital signals at the same time, using one device, and view the analogue waveforms and digital data on the same screen.

The ultimate test and measurement laboratory
Your PicoScope 2205 MSO is more than a just another instrument — it’s the ultimate test and measurement laboratory. You can use your PicoScope 2205 MSO as a dual–channel oscilloscope, a logic analyzer, a spectrum analyzer, a function generator and an arbitrary waveform generator. Five professional–quality instruments in one compact, low–cost, USB–powered unit.

Use it as an oscilloscope
With 25 MHz analogue bandwidth, 200 MS/s real–time sampling and a 48 kilosample buffer your PicoScope 2205 MSO is a powerful 8–bit, two–channel USB oscilloscope that is suitable for circuit design, testing and troubleshooting.

This full–featured oscilloscope offers mask limit testing, maths and reference channels, advanced digital triggering, serial decoding, automatic measurements and color persistence display.

Use it as a logic analyzer

The 16 digital inputs of your PicoScope 2205 MSO can be displayed individually or in arbitrary groups labeled with binary, decimal or hexadecimal values. A separate logic threshold from -5 V to +5 V can be defined for each 8–bit input port. The digital trigger can be activated by any bit pattern combined with an optional transition on any input. Advanced logic triggers can be set on either the analogue or digital input channels, or both to enable complex mixed–signal triggering.

U kunt de Pico 2205 MSO gebruiken als...

...een osciloscoop

...een logic analyser

... een spectrum analyser

...een functiegenerator met AWG

Why pay more?
At Pico we don’t do “optional extras”. Other companies may think that you should pay for high–end features such as mask limit testing, serial decoding, advanced triggering, automatic measurements, math channels, XY mode, digital filtering and segmented memory. We don’t. When you buy a PicoScope USB mixed–Signal Oscilloscope everything is included in the price.

For today, tomorrow and the future
With many companies once you’ve purchased your product that’s the end of your relationship. When you purchase your PicoScope that’s only the beginning of your relationship with us. We want to make sure your PicoScope continues to meet your needs for a long time to come. To do this we regularly update our software with new features and improvements — many suggested by you, our customers, and all designed to let you get more from your scope. At the same time we’ve made sure our PicoScope software can be used with all of our standard PC oscilloscopes so if you ever want to upgrade you don’t need to learn a new software package.

Many of our customers become lifelong PicoScope users. We hope you’ll be one of them.

The mixed–signal oscilloscope that you need

The ability to measure two analogue signals of up to 25 MHz together with 16 digital signals of up to 100 MHz, combined with a 200 MS/s sampling rate and 48 kS buffer memory makes the PicoScope 2205 MSO a powerful mixed–signal oscilloscope. The compact, USB–powered design means that this is one mixed–signal oscilloscope that can be used both on your desktop or in the field. While the ability to also use it as spectrum analyzer, function generator and arbitrary waveform generator gives you a complete test and measurement lab at a price you can afford.

If you want to measure both analogue and digital signals then the PicoScope 2205 MSO is the mixed–signal oscilloscope that you need.
