Free Waveform Analysis Tool Extends Scope Performance

Pico Technology’s DeepMeasure analysis tool, included as standard with PicoScope 3000, 4000, 5000, and 6000 Series oscilloscopes, delivers automatic measurement of waveform parameters on up to a million successive waveform cycles. Results can be sorted, analyzed and correlated with the waveform display.

 

Oscilloscopes such as the PicoScope 3000 Series (512 MSamples) and 6000 Series (2 GSamples) can capture waveforms with thousands of waveform cycles, at full sampling speed with each triggered acquisition. DeepMeasure returns a table of results that includes every waveform cycle captured in the memory. Ten waveform parameters are included in the first version of the tool and over a million results of each parameter can be collected. The table of captured results can be sorted by each parameter in ascending or descending order, enabling engineering teams to spot anomalies and rapidly identify the cause of complicated issues. So, for example, click on the Rise Time column heading and you can quickly find the fastest (or slowest) rise time out of up to 1 million cycles of the waveform. Double-clicking on a specific measurement highlights the corresponding cycle in the oscilloscope view. For more extensive analysis, such as histograms and advanced data visualization, the table of measurements can be exported for use with tools such as Excel and MATLAB.

 

PicoScope with DeepMeasure is free of charge for users of PicoScope 3000, 4000, 5000, and 6000 Series oscilloscopes. The beta version can be downloaded now from the Pico Technology website.
