The Next Generation Pico Oscilloscope has arrived


PicoScope 4425a and 4225a BNC+ Automotive Diagnostic Oscilloscopes

The very latest Picoscope 4425a and 4225a BNC+ series have just launched the Pico automotive scope to the next level. With up to 400 MS/s sampling rate, and 250 Million sample memory and some fantastic new features, this exciting new product has really got the industry talking.

PicoScope 4000 series oscilloscopes are designed to save you time and money by making it easier and quicker to diagnose faults on today’s modern vehicles. Join the long list of satisfied Pico customers now, and see how easy it really is to take your diagnostic ability to a whole new level with the latest automotive Picoscope. With this sort of speed and detail, you won't miss a thing.

Some of the new unique features we have on the 4425A/4225A are real advantages compared to other scopes and deliver real benefits to technicians:

  • PicoBNC+ probe recognition improves Scope setup which saves time, reduces errors, and allows new users to become confident and comfortable faster than with other scopes.

  • PicoBNC+ powered probes improve Equipment maintenance which means that probes are always ready for action (no more flat batteries!), with no battery power limit on the use of current clamps for long-term measurements.

  • PicoBNC+ software control improves Probe setup which provides Auto-zero on Current Clamps and other probes, avoids incorrect probe switch settings, and simplifies probe set-up for users.

  • Channel status LEDs improve Technician help which provides a clear indication of which probes to connect to which channel, and of active channels.

  • Probe mismatch [in PS7 only] improves Connection accuracy which eliminates the chance of accidental incorrect setup or measurements.

  • PicoBNC+ Resistance lead improves Measurement options providing reliable dynamic testing when only resistance specifications are available, and monitoring changes of resistance in real-time (wiggle test).

  • Pico BNC+ Temperature lead improves Measurement options providing correlation of faults with temperature, and testing of HVAC system performance with time.

Faster sampling

The latest PicoScopes can capture signals faster than ever; with sampling rates of up to 400 million samples per second, there is nothing that can escape the scrutiny of PicoScope. It can capture CAN and FlexRay signals, and has the speed to handle future needs as vehicle technology changes.

More memory

As well as capturing faster signals, the PicoScope 4000 series also outperforms other scopes thanks to the 250 Million Samples of ‘always on’ memory. PicoScope ensures that you can effortlessly capture every detail of the signal. Never again will you miss those hard–to–find intermittent faults.

Higher input range

The high ±200 V input range of the PicoScope 4000 series eliminates the need for external attenuators for most vehicle tests.

Independent floating inputs

A major innovation on the 4425a are the independent floating inputs; think of it as 4 separate 1-channel oscilloscopes in a box all sharing the same timebase and control. This means that all inputs can be used in differential mode (e.g. CAN_H and CAN_L signals), or across non-grounded components such as 12V injectors or for voltage drop testing using a single input.

(Maximum 30V common mode voltage difference between channel grounds.)


The new PicoScope 4225a and 4425a scopes include a handy feature to detect when you have made a good connection. When you are trying to probe in those difficult to reach places, the new PicoScopes can display the connection status on your big screen ensuring fewer frustrations with poor connections.

Now even easier to use

Thanks to the familiar graphical user interface, help files and reference library, using your PicoScope 4000 series diagnostic oscilloscope is as easy as ever. If you’re an existing PicoScope user you can just connect your scope and benefit immediately from the power and performance of your new PicoScope 4000 Series scope. If you’ve never used a Pico oscilloscope before you can get started without needing to spend hours reading manuals.

The PicoScope for the new generation of vehicles

The fast sampling speeds, large memory and high bandwidth of the PicoScope 4000 Series means that not only is it suitable for use on all current vehicles, but it will continue to be of use in diagnosing faults with the complex electrical and electronic systems that will be found on new and future generations of vehicles.
