Linux Drivers for DSOs and Data Loggers.
Pico Technology has empowered its complete range
of PC-based digital oscilloscopes and data loggers
with robust Linux software drivers.
* Linux availability for all of Picos products
* No Licence Fee required
* Robust platform
Pico Technology, specialists in PC-based instrumentation, has
added Linux drivers to its complete range of data acquisition
and digital storage oscilloscope (DSO) products. Now, by simply
visiting Picos website and downloading the Free Linux software
drivers, industrial, scientific, engineering and educational users
can access Picos products from a Linux platform.
The demand for Linux-based applications is growing steadily in
the research and development, networking, industrial, education
and scientific communities. The operating system offers powerful
networking and Internet facilities, is extremely robust, and is
Alan Tong, Pico Technologys Technical Director said: With the
addition of the latest Linux drivers, now all of our products such
as digital oscilloscopes, temperature monitoring devices, and
data loggers can be used on platforms running the Linux operating
system. Unlike other suppliers, the Linux drivers are free to
download from our website.
Over the last two years, Linux has grown enormously in popularity
and is fast becoming the operating system of choice in many
PC-based test and measurement and process control applications.
Pico already supplies Linux drivers for its high-end instruments -
such as the:
* ADC-212/100 high-resolution (12bit) 5 GS/s oscilloscope / 50MHz
* ADC-216 16 bit oscilloscope / spectrum analyser;
* TC-08 eight channel thermocouple data logger; and
* EnviroMon network based datalogger which supports IP and GSM's
(SMS) communication protocols
Now customers can enjoy the benefits of Linux with Picos complete
range of instruments.
Linux, with its powerful networking capabilities and the attraction
of requiring no licence fee, is growing in popularity. It is particularly
well suited to remote data logging applications, where a Windows
Licence fee (and the need to use a powerful Windows compatible
PC) could easily double the cost of a basic system.
Mike Green, Managing Director of Pico Technology concludes:
By providing Linux drivers for our products and, with our PicoLog
and EnviroMon data logging software supporting IP, it is possible
to develop a system with multiple remote sites employing Linux
and have just one Windows interface at the central data collection
