Re: etsCycles and etsInterleave, 2208B

Hi Gerry,
For some reason I don't see any influence of etsCycle value (as far as it is >= etsInterleave).
What is the reason for the two parameters not to be always eaual?

Re: Rapid Block Mode with picosdk-python-wrappers only works once

Are you using the latest SDK version? I had the same problem with the previous SDK.

etsCycles and etsInterleave, 2208B

1) In the Programmer's Guide it is noted that etsCycles is "the number of cycles to store". To store where? ps2000aGetValues returns only 1 waveform. 2) It is also noted in the description of etsCycles that "The computer can then select etsInterleave cycles to give the most uniform spread of samples...

Analog BW filter in SDK?

There is a possibility to set the BW filter in the Picoscope software, but I cannot find the function in the SDK (2208B). Where is it?

Re: absolute trigger time stamp in rapid block mode 6404D

Hi Mirco There is a function to get the number of sample intervals between triggers in rapid block mode but it is undocumented. The definition of the function ps6000GetTriggerInfoBulk can be found in the header file in the PicoSDK folder. The ps5000a programmer's guide has a ps5000aGetTriggerInfoBu...

Re: Maximum number of segments in rapid trigger mode, 2208B

Are you able to show the code which you're using? I used the PicoScope2000aExampleRapidBlockBulkMSO.vi example, but I am pretty sure it will be the same for any rapid block example. https://github.com/picotech/picosdk-ni-labview-examples/blob/master/ps2000a/32-bit-examples/PicoScope2000aExampleRapi...

Hi

In the specifications the maximum waveforms in rapid trigger mode for the 2208B is 10000.
If trying to set a value greater than this then a error will be returned by the scope to that function call.

Neil
Datasheet says that 10000 is for the PicoScope software, 500000 for the SDK.

Maximum number of segments in rapid trigger mode, 2208B

When I try to set the number of blocks more than 32k, _ps2000aMemorySegments@12 function throws error 5030 "PICO_TOO_MANY_SEGMENTS: Not possible to create number of segments requested". This behavior is independent of the number of samples in each block, as well as x32 or x64 drivers. According to t...

Re: Is it possible to make the Picoscope software use complete data for math channels and measurements?

PicoScope 6 is sent both downsampled and raw data, from the hardware, during a capture, and displays the data downsampled sufficiently for the zoom level selected Hi Gerry, I thought that the whole reason for downsampling is to reduce the data transfer time via USB. But you say that downsampled dat...

Is it possible to make the Picoscope software use complete data for math channels and measurements?

Is it possible to make the Picoscope software use complete data (rather than downsampled one) for math channels and measurements?

Re: ETS mode

Hi Gerry,
I still cannot get what is the difference between ETS and STS. Both use delays to have more samples/s than the real sampling rate.

Hi,
Yes Picoscope 6 Math Channels use the downsampled data for calculations.

Re: Envelope mode

Hi Gerry, I don't have much experience with FPGAs, so let's see what the developers say. Envelope mode reduces the amount of data compared to the raw data, so why isn't it downsampling? I was also thinking it might be possible to use the ETS mode for my kind of downsampling, but that would work only...

Re: ETS mode

Hi Gerry,
Isn't what you described here a STS mode rather than ETS? Is there any difference?
