Re: getTriggerState for PS6000

Hi Are you able to give more information on exactly what you're trying to do? It is sounding like you're probably going to want to use a level threshold trigger to capture a block of data when the voltage exceeds a certain amount but I want to check that this would be the way to go for your applicat...

Re: How to get live output into python GUI?

Hi To resolve the error message you're getting you could increase the size of the buffer that the data is copied into after collection to be significantly larger than you think it needs to be (so long as you have the RAM to accommodate this). The example is set to only collect a short time of stream...

Re: any picoscope 3000 enthusiasts want to help?

Hi Are you able to give more specifics about the application like the capture time and rate then I can give better advise for your usage of our scope? Using the scope in MATLAB gives you extra flexibility when setting up the scope to match what you're needing it to do. We also do have example code a...

Re: Stopping AWG from within python

Hi To stop the scopes signal generator you can either call the Stop function, though this will also stop any capture being run, or you can call the SetSigGen function again with a 0 V amplitude to effectively stop it. The shots variable could also be used to have the signal generator automatically s...

Re: PicoScope 6000 Series can´t connect with MATLAB

Hi

The 6000E devices use the ps6000a driver so need to use the corresponding set of examples rather than the ps6000 driver and examples.

Re: Trouble with Picoscope connection with Matlab

Hi

The wrapper files can be downloaded from here https://github.com/picotech/picosdk-c-wrappers-binaries then once they've been added to the MATLAB path it should resolve the error you're seeing

Re: Trigger Source - Internal Signal Generator

Hi

There isn't an internal connection between the signal generator output and any measurement channel so to use the signal generator to trigger the scope or to view the signal it would need to be connected to an input channel externally

Re: icdevice Problem with SDK in MATLAB

You will need to download the wrapper dlls from here https://github.com/picotech/picosdk-c-wrappers-binaries which should be a part of the instructions in the README, if it isn’t please let me know and I can look into this. Once downloaded these need to be placed onto the the MATLAB path to ensure t...

Re: calculating function of arbitrary waveform

Hi

There isn't a way to produce a fitted equation for a drawn arbitrary waveform but you can export the buffer as a csv file then use another program to find an equation that fits the shape drawn.
