    At 20 GHz bandwidth the PicoScope 9300 sampling oscilloscopes address digital and telecommunications applications of 10 Gb/s and higher, microwave applications up to 20 GHz and timing applications with a resolution down to 64 fs. Optional 11 Gb/s clock recovery, optical to electrical converter or differential, de-skewable Time Domain Reflectometry sources (40 or 60 ps) complete a formidable, small-footprint and cost-effective measurement package.

    20 GHz bandwidth in a compact USB instrument
    The PicoScope 9300 Series oscilloscopes use triggered sequential sampling to capture high-bandwidth repetitive or clock-derived signals without the expense or jitter of a very high-speed clocked sampling system such as a real-time oscilloscope. The 20 GHz bandwidth allows measurement of 17.5 ps transitions, while the very low sampling jitter enables a time resolution as short as 0.064 ps. The sequential sampling rate of 1 MS/s, unsurpassed by any other sampling oscilloscope, allows the fast building of waveforms, eye diagrams and histograms.

    These units occupy very little space on your workbench and are small enough to carry with your laptop for on-site testing, but that’s not all. Instead of using remote probe heads attached to a large bench-top unit, you can now position the scope right next to the device under test. Now all that lies between your scope and the DUT is a short, low-loss coaxial cable!

    Everything you need is built into the oscilloscope, with no expensive hardware or software add-ons to worry about.

    PicoSample 3 for Windows PicoSample 3 software has many advanced features such as mathematical analysis, histogram analysis, eye-diagram analysis and mask testing. All features are included as standard. Updates can be downloaded for free.
    Software development kit The SDK allows you to control the scope from your own program. The software can act as an ActiveX COM server, allowing any program to send commands to it using a standard Windows protocol. This is ideal for production–test environments where multiple scopes need to be controlled from a single PC, or where automated tests need to be run. The SDK contains full documentation and example code for various programming languages.
