Current measurement

Hi I want to buy an active probe for my picoscopes. I am developing a battery powered device, that needs to have very low sleep mode current consumption. Normally, I would just insert a 10 Ohm resistor in the supply and measure the voltage across, and calculate the current, but there is a x1000 time...

Re: Getting started with SDK

Hi Hitesh,

Thanks,

Getting started with SDK

Hi How do you recommend getting started with SDK? Do you have a 'step by step guide for dummies?' I have installed installed microsoft visual studio and the pico SDK. During compilation it says: Warning CS0649 Field 'ChannelSettings.values' is never assigned to, and will always have its default valu...

Re: No contact to PS

Problem solved... for now. The scope has started to work again. It was apparently a PC restart that was needed.

No contact to PS

Hi My PS5244 has stopped working. PicoScope 6.10.16.2 can no longer find the scope. When the scope is plugged in the red LED goes on like normal and the PC finds it, but PS6 does not. I have tried to uninstall and re-install the USB driver. That did not change anything. I am using the latest version...

Timespan of Rapid Captures

I am using the rapid capture mode on my 5244B. This is really a great new feature that has been added to PicoScope 6. I have one issue with the rapid capture, and that is that the maximum time span seems to be 10ms. Why is it so low? And is it any higher on for example 3205D MSO? This is a scope tha...

Re: Picoscope not delivering to specification??

OK, I understand. The apparent "underperformance" is caused by 1) a fixed set of possible sample rates 2) a fixed set of possible screen time. 3) The size of the memory buffer. Obviously, 1 and 3 are real limits, that you can not get around. In general I am very happy with my PicoScopes (have got tw...

Re: Picoscope not delivering to specification??

Hi Alan, Thanks for the hint about using single shot trigger, that did really double the available memory. But there is still a way to go to get the performance of the advertised performance . With single shot my PS5244B can now delivers 41.67MS/s (not 50MS/s). And it is able to use 208 MS (not 256 ...

Picoscope not delivering to specification??

Hi I have a 5244B, or at least that is what I thought I bought... According to specification 5244B should have a Maximum sampling rate of 250 MS/s (two channels, 8bit) and memory of 512 MS. When I try to use memory, Picoscope 6 will not go any higher than 25MS/s and 125Ms, for the 5 sec time span th...

Re: 1 2 5 scaling for X and Y option

Hi I agree with Bill and Martyn. PicoScope can be improved significantly, if the scaling is improved. I have written about it before on this forum. The readability of the scales would increase significantly, if you put an effort into it. To me it is not so important if it is 1 2 5 scaling, and/or pa...

Re: Reduced resolution in reference waveforms

Hi again,

I have found at least part of the answer. It seems, that it has to do with the number of samples. If the waveform contains too many samples, then the reference waveform gets reduced. Is that really necessary??

Reduced resolution in reference waveforms

Hi

I think this is an error: Please see the attached picture. It appears that the reference waveforms have lower resolution than the originals. Why?

Re: Grid readability

I just want to chip in, now that somebody else is also commenting on a subject that I care about. Grid lines like 1.427V, 1.806V and 2.185V are much slower to read than 1.4, 1.8 and 2.2 Volt It is 100 times easier to calculate the middle point between 1.8 and 2.2 Volt, than it is between 1.806 and 2...

Re: Faulty signal generator on 5244B

Hi

Yes, I received the driver yesterday.

This morning I started a test, and now more than 5 hours later, there has not been a single glitch.

I am confident that the new driver solved the problem. :D

Best regards,
