This video provides a walkthrough of the PicoScope 6 advanced triggering menu, using examples of runt pulses and pulse width triggers.

video 32

Trigger Mode Basics

In this video, PicoScope 6 basic trigger modes are described, plus an example of using the rapid trigger mode to reduce dead time between captures (trigger re–arm time).

video 35

Using and Defining Custom Probes

Learn how to define measurement units and axis scaling by adding custom probes.

video 34

Using the Logic Trigger

This video shows how to use logic triggering to acquire a specific 4–bit pattern using a four–channel PicoScope.

video 37

Using Resolution Enhancement

Improve the accuracy of your measurements by using scale, offset and resolution enhancement.

video 36

Using Deep Memory PicoScopes

Get the most out of your PicoScope’s deep memory; demonstrating segmented memory, long single captures of up to 1 GSamples and Rapid Trigger mode.

video 39

Capturing High–Speed Serial Data

Capturing and analysing high speed digital data requires careful considerations including choosing the correct termination, use of advanced triggers, and measuring jitter.

video 38

Spectrum Mode

In order to demonstrate FFT spectrum mode in PicoScope, the built–in AWG is used to generate a swept sine wave as the input.

video 41

Saving and Loading Waveforms and Setups

This video demonstrates how to save single and multiple waveform captures to disk and reload them, and how to save alternative setups.

video 40

Making Rise Time Measurements

This video explores different methods of measuring rise times using PicoScope 6.

video 43

Using the Maths Channel Feature

Discover how to create a maths channel using the built–in functions in PicoScope 6. The example includes creating a custom math function which subtracts a live signal from a saved reference signal to show the difference.

video 42

Saving Waveforms as Animated GIFs

This brief video shows how a series of captured waveforms can be saved as an animated GIF file and viewed using a browser.
