PicoScope oscilloscopes

Block mode capture examples

A typical block mode capture vi example is shown.

  • The front panel allows you to control acquisition parameters such as timebase, sampling mode and number of pre- and post-trigger samples.
  • Triggering controls include trigger source, direction, delay and auto trigger.
  • Channel settings controls include channel, voltage range, coupling and DC offset.
  • The following actual capture information is displayed: Sample interval, Number of samples, Capture time, and Maximum available.
  • Data samples are plotted on the graph.

See 'block capture mode' under the PicoScope A-Z for more information.

LabVIEW SDK Streaming Example

LabVIEW SDK Streaming Example

Streaming mode capture examples

A typical streaming mode capture vi example is shown.

  • Uses the same basic controls for trigger and channel settings as the block mode examples.
  • The front panel allows you to control acquisition parameters including sample interval and time units.
  • You can set the size of the Overview buffer for continuous streaming.
  • You can enable the Auto Stop button to stop the scope capture once triggered and the required number of samples have been captured.
  • Features an Apply Settings button with Auto Stopped and Triggered indicators.
  • Actual capture information displayed: Sample interval, Number of samples per Capture and Total Samples.

See 'Streaming mode' under the PicoScope A-Z for more information.

AWG examples

A typical AWG VI example is shown.

  • The front panel allows you to control PicoScopes with an AWG or signal generator output.
  • Basic signal generator controls: Wave shape, Voltage level and offset, Trigger source and type, sweep settings.
  • Shots and sweep settings can be used with trigger modes.
  • Separate AWG settings, with AWG file selection feature.
  • Additional buttons: Stop, Update, Software trigger and Stop S/W Trigger.

Rapid block mode capture examples

A typical rapid block mode capture VI example is shown.

  • Has the same basic controls for trigger, channel, timebase, and number of samples as the block mode examples.
  • Has additional acquisition setting for the Number of Captures, which segments the scope's buffer memory.
  • Captures can be repetitively started using the Run button.
  • Capture Complete indicates the end of all captures.
  • Then each capture can be viewed using the capture index.

See 'Rapid trigger mode' under the PicoScope A-Z for more information.

Advanced trigger examples

We supply some block mode capture examples using an advanced Triggers vi block.

This front panel shows the use of advanced triggers on a mixed-signal PicoScope (MSO) with analog and digital inputs.

  • Trigger conditions let you select channels and the logical condition (AND, OR, and XOR)
  • Digital inputs can be set to Don't Care, Low, High, Rising and Falling.
