Re: Beta Release of Picoscope for Linux

Thanks for the Linux release.

My Picoscope 2104 (which had been sleeping in a drawer since I ditched Windows 2 years ago) works fine!

Re: PicoScope run under LINUX?

Any other hints? -- Tom Sorry, No I'm running the 32bit version of Ubuntu , if you are running 64bit ... You could dive into some low-level usb debugging using the kernels 'usbmon' feature, but it won't help you activating the scope since the problem obviously is somewhere in the closed source driv...

Re: PicoScope run under LINUX?

Hi, I have a PicpoScope2104 running on KUbuntu 9.10 so it should be possible for you too. I sugggest you first check wether your system recognizes your device. Open a console-window and plug you scope in. The look at the output of the 'dmesg'-command. The very last lines should look similar to these...

Re: Using my PicoScope as a logic analyzer

Hi Bruno, this should be possible if you have a scope with 2 channels. Set the trigger on the clock-channel (falling edge) and start recoding the data. The I²C protocol is pretty easy to understand so its not to difficult to interpret the data by just looking at it. If you are looking for software f...

Hi riovandaino ,

I once used swig
http://www.swig.org
to interface pythoncode with a library written in C that had methods with pointers as arguments in it.
I think you should at least give it a try !

Hi jjl, I think I will search for another product. This is quite sad as the PicoScope 2104 seems perfect for my needs. I can really understand that. I also have no idea why the drivers source is is not released as open source by Pico. Having the first computerscope on the market with Linux in-kernel...

...forgot to mention that you can install the driver-rpm on a debian/ubuntu system using "alien".

Hi jjl, looks like this was written by the marketing department "OpenSource is cool so we got to put in a sentence about it on our website." In reality I didn't find any source-code for the linux-library either. Inside the rpm there is nothing more then the header- file the compiled library and a sm...

Hi jma, If you are switching the pc off, hibernating the pc, or re-booting the pc the PS3000 device should be unplugged before hand. I really hope this was meant as a joke.... I once had a similar problem with an USB-device that was connected through a self-powered hub. This specific hub did not swi...

Hi, I have the same problem with a PS2104. To me it looks like the noise is introduced by the LSB of the sampled data which seems to be switching between high and low at random. This would explain why the noise is in the sampledata, no matter what inputrange is selected. Is this a problem limited to...

Hi, I don't have a PicoScope with a signal generator, but the way you call ps2000_set_sig_gen_built_in looks suspicious: A long in C# is always 64 bits wide, but the C-library might expect the long arguments only to be 32Bits wide! You could try to cast your long (ulong) arguments to System.Int32 (o...

Sampling data long timebases times out to early? NO!

Hi,
I found my error. I requested the sample_times array with a time_unit of "nanoseconds". With timebase indices >=14 this overflows the long-values in the array after roughly 2.x seconds.

Sampling data long timebases times out to early?

Hi, I get early timeouts in block mode when using Timebases >= 14. Product : PS2104 Library : PS2000 3.6.2.0. Linux Settings : No Trigger (Trigger-channel set to 5 timeout to 0)! Requests are made in block-mode. I request 8000 samples (the hardware buffer size on the device). This is whats happening...
