the table of measurements can be exported for use with tools such as excel and MATLAB.

DeepMeasure delivers automatic measurement of waveform parameters for up to one million successive waveform cycles, meaning results can be easily sorted, analysed and correlated with the waveform display.

Most digital oscilloscopes provide automated measurements of common parameters such as frequency, period, rise and fall times, duty cycle, and maximum and minimum voltages, but the measurements are usually limited to a single complete waveform cycle captured in the oscilloscope memory.

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.

Double-clicking on a specific measurement highlights the corresponding cycle in the oscilloscope view.

“Anomalies easily pinpointed”

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.

“Visualizing real-world test data is key to solving many of today’s engineering challenges,” explained Trevor Smith, business development manager, test and measurement, at Pico Technology.

“DeepMeasure is a powerful tool that takes advantage of PicoScope deep memory oscilloscopes to enable rapid analysis and debug of complex waveforms ranging from serial data streams to laser pulses and particle physics experiments.

“Anomalies can be easily pinpointed and correlated with other events captured by the oscilloscope.”
