Re: Using a Picoscope as SPI/I2C generator

I use this USB - spi - i2C converter to generate i2c and SPI signals.

It a lot less complex than using the AWG as generator.

Re: Preserving Signal Attenuation between Scope and PC

be aware you don't have DHCP so you should probably assign fixed IP addresses if the laptop's can not 'see' each-other. First try this in the office with only an network cable between both laptop's and not connected to any switch. Depending on the type of NIC in the laptop (especially older ones) yo...

Re: SPI decode error

set our clock edge to rising and it will work as expected.

Re: PicoLog Setup

what is the frequency of the encoder pulses.

probably too fast for the log app.

Re: Carrying/storage case for PicoScope 2205A

I use this one from conrad for my 4444 scope.

I suppose they have also smaller ones.

Re: Two Signals - Two Grounds

Firs thought was No, but if you use both channels and subtract them on both scopes.
You can start 2 sessions of picoscope (1 for each scope unit)

Re: Best practices for using a large number of scopes

What is the sample speed you want. e.g. 100 k samples / sec or 100 m samples / sec What bit resolution do you want 8 bit or 12 bit. This scope does not have an external trigger input so there is no way to trigger them all at the same time without sacrificing 1 of the 8 inputs for trigger. Also USB3 ...

Re: Non intrusive 4-20mA loop monitoring

What about measuring the voltage over both wires. If you know the internal resistance of the PLC or measuring device. You can calculate the current. It is relatieve simple to use a math channel for this. Note: don't connect the ground clip of the scope to 1 of the wires. Use 2 channels to measure th...

Re: Pico 3203D Signal Generator low frequency roll off

you need to set the timebase so he have at least 2 full waves on the screen (actually 1 full is the limit)

I get 545 mv p-p on my 3403D at 1 Hz and timebase at 200 ms/dev
and the same at 0.4 Hz and 500 ms/dev.
