Attention all
Automotive Scope Users

Pico Automotive Scope software now sports a new Waveform Library browser.
Must own PicoScope to view.
See details here


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

High Resolution PC Oscilloscope / Spectrum Analyzer
  • High speed 100MS/s dual channel oscilloscope
  • 50MHz, 80db dynamic range spectrum analyzer
  • High resolution - 12 bits.
  • Large 128K sample memory.
  • 1% DC accuracy.
  • Supplied complete with PicoScope software
  • Simply plugs into any desktop or laptop PC

The ADC-212/50 & ADC-212/100 combine high sampling rates (upto 100MS/s) with a high resolution (12 bits). Together with the supplied software, your desktop or laptop PC can be used as a powerful dual channel oscilloscope / spectrum analyzer.

Both units take advantage of a 128k memory buffer, enabling large amounts of data to be captured at high sampling rates. This allows engineers to capture fast-changing signals over relatively long periods of time. After capturing these signals, any areas of interest can be magnified in both axes, while still maintaining the detail in the waveform.

The 12-bit resolution in the Y-axis gives the ADC-212's the ability to detect changes as small as 0.024 per cent. Conventional 8-bit oscilloscopes only have the ability to detect changes greater than 0.4%, but precision analogue and audio engineers require the ability to detection signal changes of less than 0.1 per cent.

Most digital storage oscilloscopes have front end amplifiers designed for high bandwidth, these products are no exception. Unlike most oscilloscopes however, the front end amplifiers also exhibit very low levels of noise and distortion. This low noise and distortion, combined with the 12 bit resolution gives an 80dB dynamic range for the spectrum analyser.
