Why does my PicoScope 6 application run so slowly?

If your computer provides a USB 1.1 port, then PicoScope 6 is unable to deliver fast oscilloscope performance as USB 1.1 is limited to 12 Mbit/s. In some cases, the application may even hang if a large amount of data is being transferred.

Upgrading to a computer with USB 2.0 would solve the problem if it is due to USB 1.1 speed limitation.

Many of our slower products, such as our PC Data Loggers, work perfectly well with a USB 1.1 port.
Refer to the "System Requirements" section in your product User Guide (www.picotech.com/document/) for further details.
