A PC oscilloscope replaces bulky and expensive test equipment, saving money and space.
Along with providing all the functionality of a conventional digital storage oscilloscope (DSO) the Pico Technology PC oscilloscope also has integrated spectrum analyzer and meter functions too.
Deep memory buffers and advanced trigger modes allow the capture of large amounts of complex data at high speeds
Both units take advantage of a 128 KB memory buffer, enabling large amounts of data to be captured at high sampling rates. This allows engineers to capture fast-changing signals over relatively long periods of time. After capturing these signals, any areas of interest can be magnified in both axis, while still maintaining the detail in the waveform.
Ideal for audio, noise and vibration measurements
The 12-bit resolution in the Y-axis gives the ADC-212's the ability to detect changes as small as 0.024 per cent. Conventional 8-bit oscilloscopes only have the ability to detect changes greater than 0.4 per cent, but precision analogue and audio engineers require the ability to detection signal changes of less than 0.1 per cent.
The high dynamic range of the spectrum analyzer makes these products ideal tools for tracking down noise in sensitive analog circuits
Most digital storage oscilloscopes have front end amplifiers designed for high bandwidth, these products are no exception. Unlike most oscilloscopes, however, the front end amplifiers of the ADC-212/100 PC oscilloscope also exhibit very low levels of noise and distortion. This low noise and distortion, combined with the 12 bit resolution, gives an 80 dB dynamic range for the spectrum analyser.
Oscilloscopes that are light and portable
By integrating several instruments into one small unit the ADC-212/100 PC oscilloscope offer any electronics field engineer with a standard notebook computer a cost-effective and simple-to-use solution with all the functionality of conventional test equipment without compromising on specifications.
