USB-scope 25 GHz scope in 2- and 4-channel models

March 31, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Pico Technology has increased the bandwidth of its PicoScope 9300 family of USB-controlled sampling oscilloscopes with two 25 GHz models, the PicoScope 9301-25 and 9341-25 with two and four channels, respectively.

The scopes support fifth harmonic capture for data up to including 10 Gb/s and third harmonic capture up to 16 Gb/s. These rates, and others in between, are increasingly found in Ethernet, Thunderbolt, USB 3.1, PCIe 4, Rapid I/O, e-SATA, OC-192 / STM-64 and OC-256. All have transmission lines, cables, components, transmitters and receivers that need pre-compliance testing and characterization.

The cost-effective, low-invasive, high-performance PicoConnect 900 probes complete the offering, uniquely configured as interchangeable AC or DC coupled probe heads in three division ratios (÷5, ÷10 and ÷20) for in-system probing of analog, pulse, impulse and high-speed serial data streams
