Win a 2-channel USB 3.0 PC oscilloscope
April 01, 2013 // Julien Happich
The PicoScope 3207A is a 2 channel USB oscilloscope with 250 MHz bandwidth, 1 GS/s sampling rate, 256 MS buffer memory and a built-in function generator. In this month's reader offer, Pico Technology is giving away this piece of equipment worth 1451 Euros, for one of EETimes Europe's readers to win.
The unit boasts a basic timebase accuracy of ±2 ppm. Other features include digital triggering for accurate, stable waveform display, and equivalent-time sampling, which boosts the effective sampling rate to 10 GS/s for repetitive signals. The PicoScope 3207B has 512 MS buffer memory and an additional 32k-sample arbitrary waveform generator with 100 MS/s update rate. As the scope obtains its power from the USB port, there is no need for an external power adaptor.
The oscilloscopes are supplied with the PicoScope software for Windows, which turns any computer into a powerful oscilloscope and spectrum analyzer. The software includes many advanced features such as automatic measurements, serial decoding of RS‑232/UART, SPI, I2C, CAN, LIN and FlexRay data, and mask limit testing. A free software development kit (SDK) is also available for those who wish to write their own data-acquisition programs. Example code in a number of languages is included.
