We are proud to announce the following new features and enhancements have been added to PicoLog 6.1.12:

  • Added support for PicoScope 6000 series oscilloscopes
  • Update all drivers and kernel drivers to the latest versions

The following bugs were also fixed:

  • Very high CPU usage from driver streaming with PicoScope 2000 devices
  • Date filter does not pop-up when clicked

Added support for PicoScope 6000 series oscilloscopes

In this release, we've completed adding support for all current real-time PicoScope oscilloscopes in PicoLog 6, by adding the PicoScope 6000 Series. 

PicoLog 6 allows you to use your PicoScope as a long term logging device just like a data logger. You get all the advantages of being able to use multiple loggers and scopes simultaneously, up to 320 channels at once! You can even use you PicoScope 6000 with PicoLog 6 on a RaspberryPi now!

There are some limitations of course, PicoLog 6 is, after all, refined for acquiring data in large multi-device/multi-channel setups where sampling speed is slow relative to oscilloscopes. As a consequence, the maximum sample rate is limited to 1 kS/s per channel to maintain database reliability. Other oscilloscope features not available include:

  • Waveform generator
  • Triggering
  • Buffer memory
  • Bandwidth limiter
  • external trigger
  • The PicoScope 6407 is not supported
PC requirements
   
Windows PC Windows 7, 8.x, 10 (32 and 64-bit)
Mac computer From macOS 10.9 (Mavericks) or newer
Linux PC Tested on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS or newer (64-bit), and OpenSUSE 15.x or newer (64-bit)
RaspberryPi

Compatible with Raspbian Jessie, Stretch and Buster or newer using RaspberryPi model 4B.

Note: Also works with model 3B and 3B+ although GUI response time is slower, and we recommend a sample rate no faster than 1 S/s.

This is the final version of PicoLog 6 that works with Raspbian Jessie and Stretch
