For immediate release:PicoScope 5000D Series FlexRes oscilloscopes and MSOs that feature up to 16 bits of vertical resolution with up to 200 MHz bandwidth and 1 GS/s sampling speed. MSO models add 16 digital channels.

6th December, 2018 – Pico Technology, a leading manufacturer of PC-based test & measurement instruments, announced today that the PicoScope 5000D Series has won the Elektra 2018 Test Product of the Year award, presented at the European Electronics Industry Awards event in London.

The Elektra awards recognize achievements of individuals and companies, and are designed to promote best practice in product and business innovation, sales growth and employee motivation.

The PicoScope 5000D won against strong competition from Keysight Technologies, Red Pitaya, Qoitech and Smiths Interconnect.

“We are honoured that the PicoScope 5000D Series has been recognized with this prestigious Elektra award,” said Trevor Smith, Business Development Manager for Test & Measurement products at Pico. “Introduced on 4th June 2018 the 5000D Series builds on the success of the previous generation PicoScope 5000A/B Series flexible resolution oscilloscopes. The 5000D gives designers and test engineers the versatility they need to make measurements on the wide range of waveforms encountered in today’s embedded systems.”

PicoScope 5000D MSO models add 16 digital channels, providing the ability to accurately time-correlate analog and digital channels. Digital channels may be grouped and displayed as a bus with each bus value displayed in binary, hex, decimal or level (for DAC testing). Advanced triggers can be set across both the analog and digital channels.

PicoScope 5000D Series oscilloscopes have waveform capture memory up to 512 megasamples - many times larger than competing scopes. Deep memory enables the capture of long-duration waveforms at maximum sampling speed.
