PicoScope 2200A Series Oscilloscopes
Powerful, portable, and versatile
The PicoScope 2200A Series
oscilloscopes offer a small, light,
modern alternative to bulky
benchtop devices. You can now fit a
200 MHz, 1 GS/s instrument easily
in your laptop bag! They are perfect
for engineers on the move; ideal for
a wide range of applications including
design, test, education, service,
monitoring, fault finding, and repair.
Digital triggering
Most digital oscilloscopes still use an analog trigger architecture
based on comparators. This can cause time and amplitude errors that
cannot always be calibrated out. The use of comparators often limits
the trigger sensitivity at high bandwidths and can also create a long
trigger re-arm delay.
A small form factor is not the only benefit of these PC-based
scopes. With our PicoScope 6 software, high-end features such as
serial decoding and mask limit testing are included as standard. New
functionality is regularly delivered through free upgrades, optimized
with the help of feedback from our customers.
USB connectivity
The USB connection makes printing, copying,
saving, and emailing your data from the field
quick and easy. The high-speed USB interface
allows fast data transfer, while USB powering
removes the need to carry around a bulky external power supply.
Fast sampling
The PicoScope 2200A Series oscilloscopes provide fast real-time
sampling rates up to 1 GS/s, equivalent to a timing resolution of only
1 ns. For repetitive signals, equivalent-time sampling (ETS) mode can
boost the maximum effective sampling rate up to 10 GS/s, allowing
even finer resolution down to 100 ps. All scopes support pre-trigger
and post-trigger capture.
Arbitrary waveform and function generators
All PicoScope 2200A Series oscilloscopes have a built-in arbitrary
waveform generator (AWG). Waveforms can be imported from data
files or created and modified using the built-in graphical AWG editor.
A function generator is also included, with sine, square, triangle, DC
level and many more standard waveforms. As well as level, offset
and frequency controls, advanced options allow you to sweep over a
range of frequencies. Combined with the spectrum peak hold option,
this creates a powerful tool for testing amplifier and filter responses.
For over 20 years Pico have been pioneering the use of full digital
triggering using the actual digitized data. This reduces trigger errors
and allows our oscilloscopes to trigger on the smallest signals, even at
the full bandwidth. All triggering is digital, resulting in high threshold
resolution within programmable hysteresis and optimal waveform
On selected models, the reduced re-arm delay provided by digital
triggering, together with segmented memory, allows the capture of
events that happen in rapid sequence. At the fastest timebase, rapid
triggering can capture a new waveform every 2 microseconds until the
buffer is full. The mask limit testing function helps to detect waveforms
that fail to meet your specifications.
Advanced triggers
As well as the standard range of triggers found on most oscilloscopes,
the PicoScope 2200A Series offers one of the best selections of
advanced triggers available. These include pulse width, windowed and
dropout triggers to help you find and capture your signal quickly.
PicoScope 2200A Series Oscilloscopes
High signal integrity
Automatic measurements
Most oscilloscopes are built down to a price. PicoScopes are built up
to a specification.
PicoScope allows you to automatically display a table of calculated
measurements for troubleshooting and analysis. Using the builtin measurement statistics you can see the average, standard
deviation, maximum and minimum of each measurement as well
as the live value.
Careful front-end design and shielding reduces noise, crosstalk and
harmonic distortion. Decades of oscilloscope design experience can
be seen in improved pulse response and bandwidth flatness. We are
proud of the dynamic performance of our products and publish these
specifications in detail. The result is simple: when you probe a circuit,
you can trust in the waveform you see on the screen.
Color persistence modes
You can add as many measurements as you need on each view. Each
measurement includes statistical parameters showing its variability.
For information on the measurements available in scope and
spectrum modes, see Automatic Measurements in the
Specifications table.
Advanced display modes allow you to see old and new data
superimposed, with new data in a brighter color or shade. This
makes it easy to see glitches and dropouts and to estimate their
relative frequency. Choose between analog persistence, digital color,
or custom display modes.
Spectrum analyzer
15 scope mode measurements
With the click of a button, you can open a new window to display
a spectrum plot of selected channels up to the full bandwidth of the
oscilloscope. A comprehensive range of settings gives you control over
the number of spectrum bands, window types and display modes.
PicoScope software allows you to display multiple spectrum views
with different channel selections and zoom factors, and see these
alongside time‑domain waveforms of the same data. A comprehensive
set of automatic frequency-domain measurements can be added to
the display, including THD, THD+N, SINAD, SNR and IMD. You can
even use the AWG and spectrum mode together to perform swept
scalar network analysis.
11 spectrum mode measurements
PicoScope 2200A
2000 Series
Math channels
Mask limit testing
With PicoScope 6 you
can perform a variety of
mathematical calculations
on your input signals and
reference waveforms.
Use the built-in list for
simple functions such as
addition and inversion,
or open the equation
editor and create complex
functions involving trigonometry, exponentials, logarithms, statistics,
integrals and derivatives.
PicoScope allows you to draw a mask around any signal with userdefined tolerances. This has been designed specifically for production
and debugging environments, enabling you to compare signals. Simply
capture a known good signal, draw a mask around it, and then attach
the system under test. PicoScope will capture any intermittent glitches
and can show a failure count and other statistics in the Measurements
The numerical and graphical mask editors can be used separately or
in combination, allowing you to enter accurate mask specifications,
modify existing masks, and import and export masks as files.
Serial decoding
The PicoScope 2200A Series oscilloscopes include serial decoding
capability as standard. The decoded data can be displayed in the
format of your choice: In view, In window, or both at once.
Custom probe settings
•In view format shows the decoded data beneath the waveform on
a common time axis, with error frames marked in red. These frames
can be zoomed to investigate noise or distortion.
•In window format shows a list of the decoded
frames, including the data and all flags and identifiers.
You can set up filtering conditions to display only
the frames you are interested in, search for frames
with specified properties, or define a start pattern
to signal when the program should list the data.
Serial protocols
It is also possible to create a spreadsheet to decode the hexadecimal
data into user-defined text strings.
High-speed data acquisition and digitizing
The supplied drivers and software development kit allow you to both
write your own software and interface to popular third-party software
packages such as LabVIEW and MATLAB.
The drivers support data streaming, a mode that captures gap-free
continuous data over the USB port directly to the PC’s RAM or hard
disk at a rate of 1 to 9.6 MS/s, so you are not limited by the size of the
scope’s buffer memory. Sampling rates in streaming mode are subject
to PC specifications and application loading.
The custom probes menu
allows you to correct for
gain, attenuation, offsets and
nonlinearities of probes and
transducers, or convert your
waveform data to different
units such as current, scaled
volt age,
pressure, power or dB.
Definitions can be saved to
disk for later use. Definitions for standard Pico-supplied oscilloscope
probes and current clamps are built in, but you can also create your
own using linear scaling or even an interpolated data table.
High-end features as standard
Buying a PicoScope is not like making a purchase from other oscilloscope
companies, where optional extras considerably increase the price.
With our scopes, high-end features such as resolution enhancement,
mask limit testing, serial decoding, advanced triggering, automatic
measurements, math channels, XY mode, segmented memory (where
available), and a signal generator are all included in the price.
To protect your investment, both the PC software and firmware
inside the scope can be updated. Pico Technology have a long history
of providing new features for free through software downloads. We
deliver on our promises of future enhancements year after year, unlike
many other companies in the field. Users of our products reward us
by becoming lifelong customers and frequently recommending us to
their colleagues.
