New PicoScope 3000E oscilloscopes

Once again, Pico is redefining PC-based oscilloscopes with up to 500 MHz bandwidth and 5 GS/s sample rate in a compact, portable USB-powered package. The PicoScope 3000E Series is a range of USB-powered PC oscilloscopes which are small, light, portable and provide high-performance specifications ideal for engineers working on advanced electronics and diverse embedded system technologies, either in the laboratory or on the move. Supported by the advanced PicoScope 7. Test and Measurement software, the PicoScope 3000E Series enables the rapid cost-effective debug and performance validation of complex analog and power electronic designs. It also offers an ideal package for many other applications including embedded systems design, research, test, education, service and repair.

High bandwidth, high sampling rate, deep memory

The models with 350 MHz (PicoScope 3417E) and 500 MHz bandwidth (PicoScope 3418E)  are currently available with real-time sampling rate of 5 GS/s, enabling a detailed display of high-frequency signal detail. The PicoScope 3000E Series offers an industry-leading 2 GSa of capture memory. Alternatively, the memory can be split into segments (up to 40.000) to capture thousands of waveforms in quick succession into the waveform buffer.

High resolution for low-level signals

PicoScope 3000E offer 8 or 10-bit resolution which can be further enhanced up to 14-bit and 1 mV/div input sensitivity. It also has a much wider set of filters (20 MHz, 50 MHz, 100 MHz, 200 MHz) than other scopes. For example, a combination of 10-bit mode and 20 MHz filter allows very small signals to be viewed with noise levels as low as 23 µV RMS.

Serial bus decoding and protocol analysis

PicoScope can decode 1-Wire, 10BASE-T1S, ARINC 429, BroadRReach, CAN, CAN FD, CAN J1939, CAN XL, DALI, DCC, Differential Manchester, DMX512, Ethernet 10BASE-T, Extended UART, Fast Ethernet 100BASE-TX, FlexRay, I2C, I2S, I3C BASIC v1.0, LIN, Manchester, MIL-STD-1553, MODBUS ASCII, MODBUS RTU, NMEA-0183, Parallel Bus, PMBus, PS/2, PSI5 (Sensor), Quadrature, RS232/UART, SBS Data, SENT Fast, SENT Slow, SENT SPC, SMBus, SPI-MISO/MOSI, SPI-SDIO, USB (1.0/1.1) and Wind Sensor protocol data as standard, with more protocols in development and available in the future, with free-of-charge software upgrades.

SuperSpeed® USB-C® connection

PicoScope 3000E Series instruments feature USB-C sockets for both the connection to the host PC and for an external power adaptor (should it be required). USB-C provides lightning-fast saving of waveforms while retaining compatibility with older USB standards, with an included USB-A to C adaptor cable. PicoSDK® supports continuous USB streaming to the host computer at rates of over 300 MS/s.

Arbitrary waveform and function generator

All PicoScope 3000E models have a built-in function generator covering the frequency range from 100 μHz to 20 MHz. All models also include a 14-bit 200 MS/s arbitrary waveform generator (AWG). AWG waveforms can be created or edited using the built-in editor, imported from oscilloscope traces, loaded from a spreadsheet or exported to a CSV file.
