Re: 8 bit resolution vs. values range

Tea reason why you don't see multiples of 256 is because your scope is calibrated. It is not just a ADC you read but it is calibrated in the factory so when you read the max value 32000 or -32000 (not 32767) you have exactly 10V or -10V on the input (depending on the range) Hope this answered your q...

Re: Save a decoder

File->Start-up Settings -> Save User Default Settings.

Then at next start everything is as it is when you saved.

You can use different configurations and save them with save settings.
When you double click on the .pssettings file picoscope opens with that settings profile.

Re: Why am I losing samples in my application?

If you are familiar with threads you can use multiple threads (1 for reading the data from the scope) and a second thread for writing accumulated data to the file. Think careful about the FIFO between the read and write thread. because you want to do this without (b)locking and there are some points...

Re: I'd like to see a recorder feature.

You can do this with the SDK and you can dit it with a higher sample rate than the PS6 software will let you do.

Re: Trigger on PicoScope Serial Decoder

Feed the serial data in a Raspberry or Arduino and let it generate a digital output signal when it occurs.
Use this to trigger the picoscope.

This is because the serial decoding is done in the PS6 software and not in the scope hardware (where normal triggering is done).

Re: Left border padding in digital view

Little trick I discovered today.
If you enable a 3th analog channel (or math) then the left border becomes 2 times wider and allows for long label names

Measuring signal delay over a long time

I have a signal with a respons time between 0.1 and 2.0 ms see attachment.

I want to run the trace for 24 hours and see what the min and max delay's are for the signal.
Persistence mode can only show 1 signal not both at the same time.
