Serial Decoding - UPDATE

The new PicoScope beta release, 6.13, adds Modbus RTU and ASCII to its growing list of serial decoders. Modbus is used in industrial automation to communicate with programmable logic controllers (PLCs).

PicoScope 6 now supports a total of 18 serial protocols and is the only oscilloscope that can decode Modbus.


You can use PicoScope to decode data from a serial bus such as CAN bus. Unlike a conventional bus analyzer, PicoScope lets you see the high-resolution electrical waveform at the same time as the data. RS232/UART and SPI formats added to serial decoding mode

Two decades of PC-based design experience and listening to your needs and desires has resulted in the PicoScope 6000 Series - the ultimate in USB oscilloscope design.


High bandwidth, high sampling rate

With up to 500 MHz analog bandwidth complemented by a real-time sampling rate of 5 GS/s, your PicoScope 6000 Series scopes can display single-shot pulses with 200 ps time resolution. ETS mode boosts the maximum sampling rate even further, allowing a more detailed display of repetitive pulses.

More buffer memory than any other oscilloscope

The PicoScope 6403/4 gives you the deepest buffer memory available as standard on any oscilloscope. Other oscilloscopes have high maximum sampling rates, but without deep memory they cannot sustain these rates on long timebases. The PicoScope 6404D's huge 2-gigasample buffer allows you to capture at 5 GS/s down to 20 ms/ div - that's a total duration of 400 ms. Managing all this data calls for some powerful tools, so PicoScope has a maximum zoom factor of 100 million combined with a choice of 2 zoom methods. There's a conventional set of zoom controls, plus an overview window that shows you the whole waveform while you zoom and reposition the display by simply dragging with the mouse.

Advanced triggers

As well as the standard range of triggers found on most oscilloscopes, your PicoScope 6000 Series scope has a built-in set of advanced triggers to help you capture the data you need.

# Supplied when ordered as an Oscilloscope Kit


Custom probe settings

The custom probes feature allows you to correct for gain, attenuation, offsets and nonlinearities in special probes, or to convert to different units of measurement. You can save definitions to disk for later use. Definitions for standard Pico-supplied probes are included.

Rapid triggering

The PicoScope 6000 Series contains special triggering hardware to minimise the dead time between captures. This enables you to collect waveforms at intervals of 1 µs or less when using a short timebase, improving your chances of spotting an infrequent glitch.

High-speed data acquisition

The drivers and software development kit (SDK) supplied allow you to write your own software or interface to popular third-party software packages. If the 2 gigasample record length isn't enough (6404D), the drivers support data streaming, a mode that captures gap-free continuous data through the USB 3.0 port directly to the PC's RAM or hard disk at a maximum (PC-dependent) rate of 13 MS/s or more.

Ultimate performance, ultimate value for money

With 4 channels, 500 MHz bandwidth 5 GS/s real-time sampling and up to 2 GS memory, the PicoScope 6000 Series are the ultimate USB oscilloscopes.

A quantum leap in PC-based test equipment, the PicoScope 6000 Series give you world-beating performance together with all the features you would expect from a PicoScope oscilloscope. And - unlike other manufacturers - all features are included in the initial cost (when new features are added you simply need to download a free copy of the software).

If you want the ultimate performance and the ultimate value for money, you want a PicoScope 6000 Series oscilloscope.
