ESC San Jose

Great to see so many customers at ESC in San Jose last week on the Pico booth -even customers from our early days of 20 years ago! The display of various scopes, loggers and probes/clamps caught the eye of many engineers and opened the door to some detailed application discussions. For others, the large PicoScope and Saelig banners provided needed brand recognition to passersby. Many people acknowledged familiarity with Saelig and/or Pico Technology, though we were surprised to find more than a few that hadn’t even heard of PC-based scope products -we’ve got additional marketing work to do! We distributed almost the entire supply of Pico datalogger and scope product family brochures.

We spread the available products over the two tables and ended up utilizing a portion of one of the tables to display three new, unreleased touch-panel PCs from our partner Comfile - whose president brought the devices from Korea. .

I canvassed the crowd and drew people in with queries about needs and applications, often tempting them with “healthy anti-oxidants” (Hershey’s chocolates). We had the PicoScope application demo running on a laptop which we used frequently to introduce them to the PicoScope GUI. We were surprised at the number of inquiries for native Mac and Linux s/w. Predictably, quite a few visitors were asking for performance in the range of 500MHz. Always more for less. No surprise, right?
