Re: picologger python wrappers?

Hi

Have you got a version of the PicoSDK installed that matches the bit version of your python?

Re: [Python][PS3206D MSO] measurements with digital channels

Hi Marc We don't currently have any examples showing triggering on a digital channel in python for the 3000a driver but there is a example using the 2000a driver, ps2000aMSOBlockExample.py, and the commands are nearly identical between the two drivers. To trigger with a digital channel, the advance ...

Re: Timestamps for python pl1000getValues

Hi

What timestamp are you trying to get? Are you wanting the system time at the point each measurement was made or something else?

Re: Select all in PicoLog 6

Hi

I believe that you can use ctrl+A to select all in the table view ready for copying so long as the data collection is paused. You can also export the data to a csv file for opening in software like excel.

Re: How re-use .pssetting files in python project?

Hi The pssetting and psdata file are proprietary file types and are not available to be loaded into any program other than PicoScope 6, to use the scope in python you would need to use the API functions from the PicoSDK to set up the scope that are documented within the programmer's guide here https...

Re: Why min and max buffers?

Hi When using SetDataBuffers you set up a maxBuffer and a minBuffer as when using aggregation downsampling you will get two different values per downsampled sample into these two buffers, if you are not using that downsampling mode then the two buffers will have the same data in them so you would on...

Re: How Measure frequency,duty,raise time of edge,fall time of edge

Hi

The measurements in PicoScope 6 are a software feature of PicoScope 6 and not included within the API in the PicoSDK. If you wish to make these measurements in C++ you would need to program these yourself.

Re: PicoVNA Matlab Interface

Hi

Using the regsvr32 will register the dll for use with 32 bit applications only as the dll itself is 32 bit so it would work with a 32 bit version of MATLAB such as 2015b 32 bit.

Re: Changing the Resolution of a 4444

Hi

The ps4000aSetDeviceResolution isn't in the .mdd file currently so to call it you would need to use this format instead;

calllib('ps4000a','ps4000aSetDeviceResolution',ps4000aDeviceObj.unitHandle, ps4000aEnuminfo.enPS4000ADeviceResolution.PS4000A_DR_14BIT)

Re: Picoscope 6404D Signal Generator Trigger Latency

Hi You would need to change the scope trigger to meet those requirements to have the signal generator trigger like that, as it is sharing it with the data capture as well. Are you able to give a sketch of your signal over several buffer lengths with where you would like to trigger your signal genera...

Re: Minimize relay activity during development

Hi

What are you currently getting when you're debugging?
Can you describe what exactly you're doing with the scope while debugging?

Re: Picoscope 6404D Signal Generator Trigger Latency

Hi

The alarm wouldn't trigger the signal generator till after the capture has completed, if you want to trigger the signal generator during the capture you would need to use the Triggers option under the Signal Generator to use the scope trigger

Re: Problem connecting to picoscope 2204a via app designer

Hi My guess would be that you're running the ps2000Config file which creates things within the workspace that are needed when using the addon to control the scope, so when using app designer you would need to modify this so that these are loaded into the app's workspace instead of the main MATLAB on...

Re: Simple Trigger + Max Continuous Streaming

The trigger in streaming ca be used to mark a point within the streamed data and/or to work with the autosto...
