PC Based Oscilloscope Introduction
PC Based oscilloscope uses an USB interface
to connect with the computer. The computer wave display and operation are all
completed via computer. The below picture is Peregrine Technology’s PC Based
Oscilloscope connected with a notebook computer.
Advantages of a PC Based Oscilloscope
|Specification item||DSO2400||Other products|
|Single Channel sampling rate||400MS/s||200MS/s|
|Dual Channel sampling rate||200MS/s||100MS/s|
In addition, in order to meet the demands of users that require higher sampling rates with more measurement channels, Peregrine Technology have also begun to design oscilloscope products with a sampling rate of 1GS/s with 4 Channels (requires an external power supply or dual USB cable), which will be coming out shortly.
Feature 2 – User Friendly Interface
Many PC Based oscilloscope software interfaces use traditional window design because it is the easiest to design. However, this kind of design does not comply with the oscilloscope use habit and will cause difficulties and inconvenience in operations for the user.
Peregrine Technology’s oscilloscope interface and exterior design is similar to actual oscilloscope, as shown below. The interface is extremely user-friendly so the users almost do not need to read the manual to operate all the functions.
Feature 3 - Stylish
Minimalist Appearance, Slim and Light
DSO2400 Series oscilloscope shell is made of black aluminum. The surface has been brush treated and the exterior is very trendy, with great texture. The size is small and light, and is convenient to carry.
The front and rear panel use laser engraving. This is not only aesthetic but will not have paint peeling problems in the future.
Features 4 -
Wave Output for Matlab Matrix Data
Matlab ® is a set of powerful mathematical calculation software developed by the Math Works, Inc.
Currently Matlab is widely used both in academia and the engineering field for mathematic calculations, therefore, we have added the Matlab matrix format function to our oscilloscope software that can save (*. M) files. Select “Matlab” in the SAVE menu, as shown below.
After selecting Matlab, the user can select the file name to be saved. The saved file will be in Matlab’s matrix format, with one matrix for each Channel. The below figure is Matlab’s file view situation.
The user can calculate and process the wave
matrix data according to their own needs. The below figure is using
the Matlab’s "plot ()" function to form a graph of the wave-matrix.
In addition to Matlab, users can also use other software design programs to read M files for signal analysis processing.
We will continue to development interfaces that is compatible with other software (such as LabVIEW, etc.), to increase the use of PC Based oscilloscope
