In its landmark 30th anniversary year, Pico Technology has released the first stable version of its latest generation of automotive oscilloscope software, PicoScope 7 Automotive.
The latest version is now available to download for free by automotive repairers.
A Pico Automotive spokesperson said: “PicoScope 7 Automotive represents a major step forward in design and usability, having been developed from the ground up to fully support the touchscreen devices commonplace within vehicle repair workshops.
“It retains all the PicoScope 6 Automotive benefits that made it an industry standard and introduces usability enhancements, to make it easier for all technicians to learn and use, as well as performance improvements under the hood.”
For the first time, PicoScope 7 Automotive is now available on macOS and Linux operating systems, in addition to Windows 10.
PicoScope’s popular Guided tests (including Electric Vehicle guided tests in PicoScope 7 Automotive) and waveform library have both been redesigned and rebuilt and are accessible within their own dedicated browsers with touchscreen-friendly navigation and controls.
The spokesperson added: “One significant new feature is the intelligent probe interface, which builds on the impressive capabilities introduced with Pico Technology’s PicoBNC+ probes and PicoScope Automotive 4225A and 4425A oscilloscopes.
“By automatically setting up PicoScope, warning users if the wrong probes are connected and suggesting suitable alternative accessories, the new interface saves users time and gives them more confidence in their test setup and results than ever before.”
