Oscilloscopes

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.

NOTE:
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.
