You can use your PicoScope 2000 Series as an advanced oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer, function generator, arbitrary waveform generator and protocol decoder out of the box. Mixed-signal models also add a 16 channel logic analyzer. A complete electronics lab in one compact, low-cost, USB-powered unit. The PicoScope 2000A models deliver unbeatable value for money and are ideal for education, hobby and field service use. In the lab, the low cost allows one scope per person rather than having to share.
At the heart of every PicoScope 2000 is an advanced oscilloscope which offers everything you would expect and much more besides:
The PicoScope 2000 Series includes mixed-signal models with 16 digital inputs so that you can view digital and analog signals simultaneously.
The digital inputs can be displayed individually or in named groups with binary, decimal or hexadecimal values shown in a bus-style display. 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 analog or the digital input channels or both to enable complex mixed-signal triggering.
The digital inputs bring extra power to the serial decoding options. You can decode serial data on all analog and digital channels simultaneously, giving you up to 18 channels of data. You can, for example, decode multiple SPI, I²C, CAN bus, LIN bus and FlexRay signals all at the same time!)
