About Pico Technology Ltd

Pico Technology design, develop, and distribute the world's leading PC-based oscilloscopes and data-loggers for the test and measurement and automotive industry globally.

Set up by Managing Director Alan Tong, the Cambridgeshire company has been designing and manufacturing PC-based test and measurement equipment since 1991. Innovation, experience and passion have pushed the boundaries of test-equipment design.

Today, the firm has over 100 employees at its head office in St Neots and regional offices in the US, Lithuania and China. The company’s three divisions produce Test and Measurement, Automotive Diagnostics and Radio Frequency test products sold worldwide through a network of distributors.

At Pico, supporting worthwhile causes is an important part of the philosophy, including donating money to various charities. The firm does this whenever a customer leaves feedback when they download software from the Pico website. In this way, Pico customers help the firm continue to improve products and raise money for worthwhile causes.
