PicoScope 7: Exciting upgrades to guided tests and the toolbox application

PicoScope 7 Automotive Early Access has recently received a substantial upgrade for oscilloscope guided tests. This development also marks the transformation of the PicoScope 7 Automotive Waveform library and Waveform management application, into a new, full-blown, automotive Toolbox support application. It marks a significant advance, equipping you all, but especially those of you in the early stages of your oscilloscope diagnostics journey, with ever more powerful diagnostic capabilities, and providing us with further application integration opportunities.

What's New?
The new, versatile, Toolbox application is accessible on multiple platforms so, for the first time ever, we have Guided test support in PicoScope on macOS and Linux platforms, as well as Windows. No matter which operating system you prefer, the Guided tests are now at your fingertips, streamlining your diagnostic processes with ease.

To cater to our diverse global community of automotive technicians, we have expanded the availability of Guided tests to 14 supported languages. 
"We are thrilled to introduce these groundbreaking upgrades to our automotive oscilloscope Guided tests in the Toolbox application. By expanding platform compatibility and language support, we aim to empower automotive technicians worldwide with the ability to diagnose and troubleshoot with ease and precision. And from here on, the Toolbox will provide an ever-strengthening pillar of diagnostic support to all our users." - Phil Service, Automotive Business Development Manager at Pico Technology
Stay tuned for more updates, and explore the enhanced Guided tests in the Toolbox application to elevate your diagnostic capabilities to new heights. You can download PicoScope 7 Automotive Early Access for free on our website.
