NorthTree Associates Announces PicoScope 4262 Very-High-Resolution Oscilloscope
NorthTree Associates announces the PicoScope 4262 from Pico Technology. The PicoScope 4262 is a 2 channel, 16 bit very-high-resolution oscilloscope (VHRO) with a built-in low-distortion signal generator.
With its 5 MHz bandwidth, the PicoScope 4262 can easily analyze audio, ultrasonic and vibration signals, characterize noise in switched mode power supplies, measure distortion, and perform a wide range of precision measurement tasks.
The PicoScope 4262 is a full–featured oscilloscope, with a function generator and arbitrary waveform generator that includes a sweep function to enable frequency response analysis. It also offers mask limit testing, math and reference channels, advanced triggering, serial decoding, automatic measurements and color persistence display. When used in spectrum analyzer mode, the scope provides a menu of eleven automatic frequency–domain measurements such as IMD, THD, SFDR and SNR. Its performance is so good that it rivals many dedicated audio analyzers and dynamic signal analyzers costing several times the price.
It connects to any Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 computer with a USB 2.0 port. The PicoScope 4262 can be used with a PC to save space on your workbench, or it can be connected to a laptop to create a portable instrument that’s perfect for field servicing and on–site work. As it is USB–powered, there is no need to carry a separate AC adapter. Applications can be written to control the scope or use it as a digitizer. Pico Technology provides a software development kit, including example code, free of charge.
