Saelig Company, Inc. has introduced PS4227, a 2-channel 100MHz USB scope with a real-time sampling rate of 250 MSa/s.
PS4227 is a USB oscilloscope suitable for general, scientific and field-service use. With 12-bit resolution—adjustable up to 16 bits in enhanced resolution mode for repetitive signals—it can be used for noise, vibration and mechanical analysis.
Powered from a PC’s USB port, PS4227 includes an integrated spectrum analyzer, function generator and arbitrary waveform generator. With two 12-bit input channels and a bandwidth of 100 MHz, waveforms can be captured for production testing, scientific analysis, electronic design and debug tasks. A third input is a dedicated external trigger, while a fourth BNC connector is provided for the output of the signal generator. This signal source allows users to create an arbitrary test signal, draw waveforms using the graphical editor, or use one of the six preset waveform types.
PS4227 can sample at rates up to 250 MS/s, and has a 32 Megasample buffer memory, allowing the maximum sampling rate to be used even on slow time-bases. The buffer can hold up to 10,000 waveforms, viewable in a pop-up navigator window.
PicoScope oscilloscope software is included, which provides a range of functions, such as mask limit testing, alarms, serial data decoding, programmable low-pass filtering, math channels, reference waveforms, Digital Color and Analog Persistence display modes and XY mode. Trigger selections include pulse width, window, interval, dropout, and runt pulse.
Made by Pico Technology, the PS4227 is available for $1,479 from Saelig Company Inc.
