Discover the new PicoScope 6428E-D Oscilloscope

We are delighted to introduce to you the PicoScope 6428E-D Oscilloscope, a cutting-edge device designed for applications demanding superior performance in signal analysis. The new oscilloscope extends the capabilities of the existing PicoScope 6000E Series, making it an ideal tool for scientists and researchers working in high-energy physics, LIDAR, VISAR, spectroscopy, accelerators, and other high-speed applications.

The PicoScope 6428E-D extends the analog bandwidth of the PicoScope 6000E Series to 3 GHz. Featuring four ranges between ±50 mV and ±500 mV, it seamlessly integrates into various systems requiring 50 Ω measurements. When paired with an active or passive probe, its capabilities are further enhanced. It is the ideal solution for continuous measurements in systems where space and cost considerations are paramount.


PicoScope 6428E-D with MSO, 3 GHz, 10 GS/s, flexible resolution & SDK support

The PicoScope 6428E-D adds a high-speed oscilloscope to the PicoScope 6000E Series with high bandwidth 50 Ω inputs and a reduced set of input ranges. Larger input signals can be accommodated with the use of external attenuators or probes designed to be used with a 50 Ω input, such as the TA062 1.5 GHz low-impedance passive oscilloscope probe with 10:1 attenuation or the PicoConnect 900 Series of passive probes.


Built for speed!

With up to 3 GHz bandwidth complemented by an extremely fast, real-time sampling rate of 10 GS/s, the PicoScope 6428E-D can display single-shot pulses with 100 ps time resolution. This level of sampling rate allows you to capture very fast, high-frequency signals with precision, for detailed signal analysis.

The 4-gigasample buffer can hold up to two 200 ms captures at the maximum sampling rate of 10 GS/s. This means you can record multiple instances of a signal or capture different signal conditions.

The PicoScope 6428E-D is designed for scientists, engineers and researchers working in high-speed applications, including high-energy physics, particle acceleration, LIDAR and VISAR, who need to capture, measure and analyze sub-nanosecond waveform events – either in stand-alone applications or integrated as part of a larger system.


Power, portability and performance

Traditional benchtop mixed-signal oscilloscopes take up a lot of bench space, and models with eight analog channels are prohibitively expensive for many engineers working on next-generation designs. PicoScope 6000E Series oscilloscopes are small and portable while offering the high-performance specifications required by engineers in the lab or on the move, and deliver lowest cost of ownership for this class of instrument.

The PicoScope 6000E Series offers up to 8 analog channels, plus an optional 8 or 16 digital channels with the plug-in 8-channel TA369 MSO (mixed-signal oscilloscope) pods. The flexible high‑resolution display options enable you to view and analyze each signal in detail.

Supported by PicoScope software, these devices offer an ideal, cost-effective package for many applications, including design, research, test, education, service, and repair. PicoScope software is included in the price of your scope, available for free download, with free updates, and can be installed on as many PCs as you want, allowing you to view/analyze data off-line without the scope.


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 serial decoding, mask limit testing, advanced math channels, segmented memory, hardware‑based time-stamping 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 has a long history of providing new features for free through software downloads. We deliver on our promises of future enhancements year after year. Users of our products reward us by becoming lifelong customers and frequently recommending us to their colleagues.


Powerful tools provide endless options

Your PicoScope is provided with many powerful tools to help you acquire and analyze waveforms. While these tools can be used on their own, the real power of PicoScope lies in the way they have been designed to work together.

As an example, the rapid trigger mode allows you to collect 10 000 waveforms in a few milliseconds with minimal dead time between them. Manually searching through these waveforms would be time-consuming, so just pick a waveform you are happy with and let the mask tools scan through for you. When done, the measurements will tell you how many have failed and the buffer navigator allows you to hide the good waveforms and just display the problem ones.
