Attention all
Automotive Scope Users

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

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

PicoScope 5200 Professional Oscilloscopes

All the Power and Performance of a Benchtop Oscilloscope

Can’t decide on whether to choose a modern PC Oscilloscope or a traditional benchtop oscilloscope?

With class-leading bandwidth, sampling rate, memory depth and a built-in arbitrary waveform generator too, a PicoScope 5000 Series PC Oscilloscope makes it easy for you to make the right choice.

PicoScope 5000 PCO
  • 250 MHz bandwidth
  • 1 GS/s real-time sample rate
  • 128 Megasample buffer memory
  • Arbitrary waveform generator

The no compromise oscilloscope

All other oscilloscopes at this price range force you to compromise on one of three key specifications: bandwidth, sampling rate or buffer memory. With the PicoScope 5000 series you no longer have to compromise.

High bandwidth and sampling rate

At the heart of the PicoScope 5000 is its ability to digitise signals accurately and with minimal distortion. The 250 MHz analog bandwidth is complemented by a real-time sample rate of 1 GS/s. For repetitive signals, an equivalent time sampling (ETS) mode increases the sampling to 20 GS/s.

Huge buffer memory

These days most digital oscilloscopes have high sampling rates, but many of them let you down with a tiny memory buffer which means that you can only use the maximum sampling rate on a few timebases. The massive 128 megasample (128,000,000) buffer memory of the 5204 ensures complex waveforms can be captured at the full sampling rate.

PicoScope oscilloscope software

PicoScope 5000 oscilloscopes are supplied with PicoScope 6 oscilloscope software which allows you to use your PicoScope PCO as an oscilloscope, spectrum analyser and meter. PicoScope 6 is responsive and easy to use. Feature-packed, PicoScope includes draggable axis, advanced zoom tools and a waveform replay tool which automatically records up to the last 1000 waveforms.

Great things come in small packages

PicoScope 5000 PC Oscilloscopes have been designed to take up very little of your valuable desk space. The innovative anti-slip case design means that the PicoScope 5000 PCOs can be used either horizontally or vertically — ideal when desk space is at a premium.

Unlike traditional benchtop oscilloscopes, PicoScope 5000 PC Oscilloscopes are lightweight and small enough to be carried in the same bag as your laptop, but for added protection you can use the supplied tough carry case. Despite the compact design, the case can safely store and protect your oscilloscope, leads, probes and power supply.

A PicoScope 5000 PC Oscilloscope comes with everything you need to start taking measurements with the minimum of fuss and effort. The PicoScope 5000 PCO is supplied in a tough carry case that includes a USB cable, two 250 MHz x1/x10 oscilloscope probes, PicoScope oscilloscope software and a universal power adaptor that allows you to use your oscilloscope almost anywhere in the world.

All you need in an oscilloscope

With class-leading bandwidth, sampling rate and memory depth, and an array of advanced high end features, PicoScope 5000 PC Oscilloscopes give you the features and performance you need. PicoScope 5000 oscilloscope are an ideal direct replacement to benchtop oscilloscopes. They are easy-to-use and cost-effective. The award-winning PicoScope 5204 is the vanguard of PC Oscilloscope design, whilst for those on a budget, the PicoScope 5203 has all the performance of the 5204 but with a smaller, though still impressive, 32 megasamples of memory.
