Re: Python with Picoscope 6402C - Freeze when using GetValuesTriggerTimeOffsetBulk64

Hi Pierre,

The ps6000GetValuesTriggerTimeOffsetBulk64 provides the time from the trigger point to the first sample rather than the time between trigger events.

Could you please e-mail support@picotech.com to discuss this further?

Re: Donwsampling with Picoscope 6 for windows

Hi Yodish,

There isn't a feature to use the average downsampling in the PicoScope software. I will raise a new feature request.

The average maths channel provides an 'Arithmetic mean of all previous waveforms'.

Re: AWG on a PicoScope 4444

Hi audiotom,

You would need to run a separate instance of PicoScope for each scope. If you are writing your own application using the Software Development Kit, it is possible to control two devices from the same application.

Hope this helps,

Re: Python SDK and SigGen with 5242D

Hi cjkraz, In order to output a number of cycles of a waveform (or start a sweep) you need to specify a trigger for the signal generator. You will need to change the following line to specify the trigger source that you wish to use: triggerSource = ctypes.c_int32(0) This number is based on the follo...

Re: How to control Pic4262 by Borland C++

Hello Xavier,

You can obtain a C example for the ps4000 driver API functions from https://github.com/picotech/picosdk-c-examples

You will need to generate your own Borland lib files. The C header files are available via the installation directory of the PicoSDK.
