Original Press Release:

Saelig Introduces PicoScope 4 Channel 5GHz Sampler-extended Real Time Oscilloscope

The PicoScope 9404-05 oscilloscope brings very high speed performance at less than half the cost of traditional benchtop solutions

Fairport, NY: Saelig Company, Inc. has introduced the PicoScope 9404-05 5GHz oscilloscope - a unique PC-based high-resolution device which brings affordable high-speed performance by combining the benefits of real-time and equivalent-time sampling with very high analog bandwidth. The PicoScope 9404-05 has four 5GHz 50 ohm input channels, each with its own advanced 12-bit ADC, which provide the required timing and display resolution for accurately measuring and visualizing high-speed repetitive analog and data signals. This tool can capture pulse and step transitions to 70ps, impulses down to 140ps, and clocks and data eyes to 3Gb/s.

The PicoScope 9404-05 has a built-in full-bandwidth trigger for each channel, with pre-trigger ETS (equivalent-time sampling) capture available to well above the Nyquist sampling rate. The PicoSample 4 software is provided at no extra charge and is derived from previous Pico products. It benefits from more than ten years of development and optimization. As they become available, new software features and updates are provided at no additional cost.

The high-resolution software display can be resized to fit any window, filling 4k and even larger for multiple monitors. Four independent zoom channels can show different views of captured data to a resolution of 1ps. Most of the controls and status panels can be shown or hidden according to various needs, allowing optimal use of the display area.

Most high-bandwidth measurement applications tend to involve repetitive signals or clock-related data streams. These are ideal for analysis by equivalent-time sampling systems. The 9404-05 Sampler-Extended Real Time Oscilloscope (SXRTO), with acquisitions running at up to 2 million triggered captures per second, enables very fast signals to build up in the display quickly.

The 9404-05 is compact enough to place on a workbench in close proximity to a device under test. Apart from the controlling PC, everything needed is built into the oscilloscope, with no expensive hardware or software add-ons required.

  • 5GHz bandwidth, 70ps transition time
  • 1TS/s (1ps) equivalent-time sampling
  • Four channels with 12-bit 500MSa/s ADCs
  • Pulse, eye and mask testing to 70ps and 3Gb/s
  • Up to 2 million triggered captures per second
  • Logical, configurable, touch-compatible Windows user interface
  • Comprehensive built-in measurements, zooms, data masks and histograms

Made by Pico Technology, Europe's award-winning test and measurement manufacturer, the PicoScope 9404-05 5GHz oscilloscope is available now at $14,995.00 from Saelig Company, Inc. their USA technical distributor.
