Hi,
I have created a bug for this seems to affecting Debian systems. (amd64 and armhf packages)
I have added rpm packages may also be affected.

Re: Ubuntu on raspi, unable to install picoscope

Hi, There is no version of PicoScope 6 for arm based systems (armfh, arm64) which includes the Raspberry Pi family. Be we do offer armhf drivers under Raspbian OS to write your own applications. These cannot be installed under Ubuntu on a Raspberry Pi4 which is arm64 architecture. We do have logging...

Re: Use of GetTimebase function

Hi Aaron, I have just looked at the ps5000aGetTimebase in the related Programmers guide. It seems to clear that *timeIntervalNanoseconds and * maxSamples are outputs and the other variables inputs to the function. It also has the same statement relating to internal overheads. If you are relying on t...

Re: Getting probe type

Here's my example so far, not a fully working example. Note PicoScope4000a.llb file is not the same as the one on Github. You may want backup your copy of PicoScope4000a.llb if you modified it also. I have only added probe enums for the TA301 on Channel A So if you using another probe you will have ...

Re: Streaming Mode trigger reset

Hi, Continuous streaming is limited to 80 MS/s per channel using the API, or 160 MS/s total shared across all channels. So for all 8 channels that only 20MS/s. Slower than block mode at the fastest time base. You may get PICO_STATUS code returned if set the sample interval above this transfer rate f...

Re: Generator Frequency rounding issue

Hi, How does this compare to setting the frequencies in Picoscope 6? I assure you are using a sine wave as this would rule out rise time limits of the AWG. I would try setting up the AWG with a one cycle of a a sine wave in the buffer. And call SetSigGenArbitrary() Calculate the deltaPhase value usi...

Re: Power monitoring formulas

This feature not supported in Picolog 6 supported, and would require a differentiation maths function to work.
This is a new feature which is commonly requested for Picolog 6 not just measuring energy (KWh).
I will add your details to the feature request.

Re: Testing 4000a series code on a 5000 series picoscope

Hello,
Unfortunately the answer is no, as the current 5000 series use the 5000a API which uses a different dll than the 4000a API. Both will have functions that are similar, in operation.

Re: Pico 5243D at Rapid block mode, While Waiting for a trigger event I can not do anything

In newer LabVIEW code I have added stop control for the IsReady loop, as it will always return zero if waiting for a trigger.
It will also exit the loop if the IsReady function returns a non-zero status code. ie error code
See below 6000a API function;
