PICO TECHNOLOGY INTRODUCES
HIGH RESOLUTION PC OSCILLOSCOPE.
PicoScope 3224 PC Oscilloscope now available, featuring
two channels, USB 2.0 connectivity and 12-bit resolution.
Pico Technology, the market leader in PC Oscilloscopes, is pleased
to announce the immediate availability of the new PicoScope 3224
PC Oscilloscope. The two-channel oscilloscope has 12-bit resolution,
20 MS/s sampling rate and a large 512 KS memory buffer. The
USB 2.0 connection makes connecting and installing the oscilloscope
easy and allows a smooth, responsive waveform display. The USB
2.0 interface also powers the unit, eliminating the need for an external
The majority of Oscilloscopes on the market offer 8-bit resolution with
small waveform buffers. The PicoScope 3224, with its high resolution
and large memory, is ideally suited to applications such as NVH (noise,
vibration & harshness) studies as well as audio analysis. Its large
memory buffer allows even long-duration signals to be captured at its
top sampling speed of 20 MS/s. It offers 1% voltage accuracy and
100 ppm timebase accuracy. With its 12-bit resolution, the oscilloscope
produces high-quality waveforms that can be vertically zoomed to reveal
even higher levels of detail. This resolution gives the instrument a 72dB
dynamic range, which enables it to detect low-level harmonics when
used in spectrum analyser mode.
The PicoScope 3224 is supplied with the PicoScope and PicoLog
software applications, a 32-bit Windows driver and support for
numerous third-party applications. PicoScope provides oscilloscope,
spectrum analyser and multimeter functions, with the ability to measure,
save and print waveforms. PicoLog turns the PC into a powerful Data
Logger that can export data to a spreadsheet or display it as a graph,
in real time or using recorded data. These programs are easy for the
novice to operate, but also contain a full range of advanced features
for expert users. Software updates are available free of charge from
the Pico Technology website.
Alan Tong, Technical Director at Pico Technology, said "Customers
will find that the PicoScope 3224 has all the capabilities and the high
quality of the well-established PicoScope 3000 Series, a range of
products that puts Pico Technology at the forefront of the PC
The PicoScope 3224 is available immediately, direct from Pico
Technology or one of its authorised distributors, at a cost of £399
