Re: Software triggered generator operation (3204A)

My goal is to generate a continuous run of waveforms and to stop them by software. I only tried with the software trigger because the external trigger will not be a use case in my application but I will try to see if the behaviour changes with a different trigger. And yes, I meant PS3000A_SIGGEN_GAT...

Re: Software triggered generator operation (3204A)

Here is how I started to generate a signal. PICO_STATUS rv=PICO_OK; rv=ps3000aSetSigGenBuiltIn(handle,0,4000000,PS3000A_SINE,50000,50000,0,1, PS3000A_UP, PS3000A_ES_OFF, PS3000A_SHOT_SWEEP_TRIGGER_CONTINUOUS_RUN, 0, PS3000A_SIGGEN_GATE_HIGH, PS3000A_SIGGEN_SOFT_TRIG, 0); rv=ps3000aSigGenSoftwareCont...

Re: Software triggered generator operation (3204A)

Sorry to bump an old thread but my issue is close to the first one here. I am trying to trigger signals on a 3205B but contrary to what the programmer's guide says, the signal starts immediately when using PS3000A_SIGGEN_GATE_HIGH and PS3000A_SIGGEN_SOFT_TRIG as the trigger condition and trigger sou...
