Re: TC08 (USB) "Crosstalk" between channels

- Checking voltage between the 5V pressure sensor power and the laptop ground reads 0.2VDC
Have you tried AC measurement on this.

Re: Installing two versions of PicoScope?

OK then an other solution (if you haven enough RAM) use a windows-XP virtual PC (optional in borderless mode) and start the XP version from the virtual PC.

Or even simpler remote desktop in to the win-xp machine in the workshop.

Re: Signals 'stop advancing' across screen

The trigger is only valid after 5 sec of starting the capture.
so start capturing wait about 10 sec an then trigger.

or set your trigger diamond at the start of the trace.
If you want to trigger directly after starting the trace.

Re: Monitor CanBus Signals

How do you hookup the peak usb unit ?

This has a 9 pin Sub-D connector on it.
You can hook the scope to the same connector where you normally use the Peak-USB, or is the Peak-USB part of the system ?

Re: Picoscope software 10MS/s streaming, 4444 capable of 50MS/s

we are almost 2 years later now. Any progress on increasing the 100MS and 16.6MS/s limit for the 4444. Running on i9 12 core (24 threads) and 32GB ram the 1.6% CPU usage, so preserving PC resources is no excuse. Maybe a test om at startup a check for CPU and RAM and: - increase the 100M limit if RAM...

Re: TA 300 Current Probe

Message send, but all at your own risk of damaging the TA300 probe.

I strongly suggest you buy
https://www.picotech.com/accessories/cu ... -probe-4mm

because it is almost the same cost as the components you need to use the TA300 without the 4444 scope.

Re: Visual Studio Compiler setting for my library using PicoScope 3403D p3000a.dll

MD for release build MDd for debug build. I use 1 thread for reading the data from the DLL and another thread for processing / decoding the data. In-between there is some sort of memory FIFO queue so any hickipus in the processing / decoding wont result in missing data from the scope. P.S. I would o...

Re: Decoding CAN

can you post a .psdata file (upload it somewhere)
O and use a higher sample rate by setting the 1MS on top to 10 or 100 MS

Re: Record Length streaming mode

I have done this in C++ and run it for over a month with a data rate of 1MS/sec.
So there is no limitation on the SDK side.
Don't know if the MATLAB has some limitations.

Other option and more fun to do is hacking the .psdata format and write .psdata files.

Re: Unable to trigger on CAN ID or CAN frame error

With peeking i mean the PicosSocpe6 software has some interface to export the received data in realtime to a external application (TCP or something else) so this application can look at the samples at the same time as the PicoScope6 software does. Extra bonus points if the external application can s...

Re: Strange Decoding off SPI bus signals

A psdata file would be help full so we can see how some settings for decoding are done.
