PicoScope 9300 Series

USB Sampling Oscilloscopes

With up to 25 GHz bandwidth, the PicoScope 9300 sampling oscilloscopes address digital and telecommunications applications of 10 Gb/s and higher, microwave applications up to 25 GHz and timing applications with a resolution down to 64 fs. Optional 11.3 Gb/s clock recovery, optical to electrical converter or differential, deskewable time domain reflectometry sources (60 ps/7 V) complete a powerful, small-footprint and cost-effective measurement package

15 GHz bandwidth in a compact USB instrument

PicoScope 9300 Series sampling oscilloscopes use triggered sequential sampling to capture high-bandwidth repetitive or clock-derived signals without the expense or jitter of a very high-speed clocked sampling system such as a real-time oscilloscope. 25 GHz bandwidth allows measurement of 14 ps transitions, and low sampling jitter enables timing resolution down to 0.064 ps. Sequential sampling rate of 1 MS/s, unsurpassed by other sampling oscilloscopes, enables rapid building of waveforms, eye diagrams and histograms.

These two and four channel units occupy very little space on a workbench and are small enough to carry with a laptop for on-site testing. Furthermore, instead of using remote probe heads attached to a large bench-top unit, you can position the PicoScope 9300 right next to the device under test and connect to it with short, low-loss coaxial cables.

Everything you need is built into the oscilloscope, with no expensive hardware or software add-ons to worry about. Alternatively, you can use your PicoScope 9300 with a stand-alone PG900 TDR/TDT differential fast pulse generator to gain the extra versatility and configurability of independent high-performance source and measurement instruments.

Trigger modes

2.5 GHz direct and up to 15 GHz prescaled trigger

Sampling oscilloscopes accept their trigger from a separate input, either directly for repetition rates up to 2.5 GHz or via a prescaling divider input, for repetition rates up to 15 GHz (14 GHz on 15 and 20 GHz models).

Built-in 11.3 Gb/s clock data recovery trigger

To support serial data applications in which the data clock is not available as a trigger, or for which trigger jitter needs to be reduced, the PicoScope 9302 and 9321 include a clock recovery module. This continuously regenerates the data clock from the incoming serial data or trigger signal and can do so with reduced jitter even over very long trigger delays or for pattern lock applications. A divider accessory kit is included to route the signal to both the clock recovery and oscilloscope inputs.

Built-in signal generator

All the PicoScope 9300 Series scopes can generate industry-standard and custom signals including clock, pulse and pseudo-random binary sequence. You can use these to test the instrument’s inputs, experiment with its features and verify complex setups such as mask tests. AUX OUTPUT can also be configured as a trigger output

TDR/TDT analysis

An External  TDR/TDT capability is to pair any 9300 Series scope with a standalone PG900 pulse generator. These instruments include similar differential step recovery diode step generators and also offer an option of 40 ps tunnel diode step generation. This brings extra flexibility and the ability to remotely position the pulse source. The generators also enable TDT and TDR with the PicoScope 9301, 9302 clock recovery, 9321 optical and 9341 4-channel sampling oscilloscopes.
