Re: multiple time rulers

More workarounds... you can load a second instance of Picoscope ( but only as Administrator ? so right click when launching otherwise you just bring focus to first instance ) and then you use Windows 10 split screen settings to show multiple Picoscope instances on same display. Doing so allow for vi...

Re: multiple time rulers

Multiple viewport suggestion does work, thanks for making me aware of this. DeepMeasure is also good suggestion although in this case I'm looking at just two adjacent PWM pulses. Thanks for the replies

Re: multiple time rulers

I agree, multiple rulers would be helpful to me. I'm measuring different pulses within the same buffer and having to remove first delta to create second and then comparing the values of deltas seems like a perfect use of computer software.

Re: Returning from suspend without having to restart Picoscope ?

FWIW, for the first time an error report was generated when returning from sleeping notebook. Is such a report useful ? If so, where do I send ?

Re: PicoLog 6.1.6 Beta adds PicoScope oscilloscope support

4824 and 4444 both utilize the same SDK ( 4000 series (A API)) so I can't imagine much work to get working for 4444 if already on 4824. Emails are private and don't communicate interest to others so I'd rather use the forum and see what interest exists from others.

Re: Why a limit of 256KiB on uploads to this forum ?

Thanks for reply Martyn. Just now I tried to upload a 496KiB image ( .png supported ? ) and the upload progress meter moved as it should, but no upload and no message. I'm using latest Chrome. If certain formats supported is there a document that says which ?

Returning from suspend without having to restart Picoscope ?

Hi Forum. I often will suspend Windows ( power button or closing clamshell of notebook ) with Picoscope still connected although not running. When I return from suspend I'm greeted with "Not Responding" caption in Picoscope and forced to restart the app. When I do restart there is sometimes an addit...

Why a limit of 256KiB on uploads to this forum ?

This is a difficult size restriction that on more than one occasion has prevented me and subsequently discouraged me from posting. I've posted about at at least once and I see at least one other, but never an acknowledgement from Pico ?

Re: PicoLog 6.1.6 Beta adds PicoScope oscilloscope support

Hi. I have a 4444 and find this software interesting and quite usable. Is there planned support for any other Picoscopes ?

Re: How do I Label Signals?

I also think this is useful and would like to see it implemented. When dealing with 3 or more signals or referencing a saved waveform it really seems to help me to easily discern. Just watched a video from which I uploaded this screenshot after much cropping due to artificially low attachment size l...

Trying the make the 4444 more portable...

Hi Forum. I think the 4444 is quite portable and the case is awesome. I have a bunch of Pico and non Pico accessories within and there is room for all while keeping snug given the existing cut-outs. But the limitation I'm experiencing comes when you get to the job. There is no way that I see to atta...

Re: DB9 extension cable for 4444 ?

Thanks for reply Gerry. "Higher than UART" only meant to convey that I don't think some of these inexpensive serial DB9 extension cables are a good choice. Attenuation will happen before the extension cable so let's say 50V as the scope is limited to that. We have the terminals to crimp our own D-su...

DB9 extension cable for 4444 ?

Hi Forum. I need 3m ( 10' ) DB9 extension cable to locate scope in a nice environment for some tests. I suppose any "straight through" DB9 extension cable will work for low voltage, low frequency stuff but perhaps there is something that uses Belden 9271 or is rated for higher voltage than typical U...

On a DMM it seems easy: 1-ensure correct operating temperatures and stabilization of reference device 2-zero/offset for leads to be used for test 3-measure I understand the a...

Assorted mask limit testing questions

Hi Pico forum. I'm looking to create masks based on specifications rather than generate from traces. Picoscope User's Guide mentions edit box, but I'm unable to find this option anywhere in Picoscope ( latest version, stable and beta ) ? Mask file appears to be markup so I can generate a template ma...
