Re: USB decoding with single channel

Hi, dale, A previous USB decode implementation in the original Serial Decoder only decoded one channel, but had serious problems performing the decode correctly, which is part of the reason why we now only use differential channels. Obviously, if you are effectively decoding only one Channel, you ar...

Re: Export reference waveform as text / csv

Hi sweber, If you send us (support@picotech.com) the reference waveforms as .mat files we can convert them for you. In the meantime, I will create a 'New Feature' request to be able to export reference waveforms from PicoScope 6 to the file formats of more more widely available tools. Regards, Gerry

Re: How to control vertical range of Spectral Mode?

Hi talktronics, Scaling doesn't change the situation for Michael, but I needed to know if it changed the situation for you, because now that i know that it doesn't I can ask you to post a psdata file so that we can try and replicate what you are seeing. The issue is that this problem doesn't appear ...

Re: How to control vertical range of Spectral Mode?

Hi michael.clarage, Could you post a psdata file so that we can accurately quantify the signal levels in both views to determine if this is an issue. Hi talktronics, I have had some difficulty reproducing what you are seeing in 5000 series PicoScopes. Have you had a chance to follow Alans suggestion...

Re: Strange Case of a Vanishing Spectrum, The

Hi paleicse,

Could you post a psdata file rather than an image, so that we can try and replicate and analyze what is going on.

Thanks,

Re: unexpected noise

Hi denise, As pointed out by bennog, your data file clearly shows that you have interference (not noise) due to an amplitude modulated carrier frequency typical of a radio transmission. The approximate transmission frequency is 100MHz, (although the modulating waveform is not at audio frequencies). ...

Re: Random high time-overhead/delay in block mode

Hi mzeeshan, There are 2 completely different mechanisms of data storage going on here. (a) the real-time capture of the data in the hardware PicoScope buffer, and (b) the non-real-time transfer of data from the hardware PicoScope buffer to the software buffers on your computer (i.e. the overview bu...

Re: unexpected noise

Hi Denise, You say the jitter was larger than expected. Could you tell us exactly what it was (or better still save and post the psdata file for it)? The noise should not increase on channel B like that. Could you post the saved psdata files for the noise on Channel B with Channel A enabled and disa...

Re: Signal capture and "playback"

Hi Sert, The answer to your question is yes. But you need to be aware of the conditions. You can save the captured waveform as a CSV file and then import it into the Arbitrary Waveform Generator of the Signal Generator, and use it as your waveform source. However, the AWG expects to see the followin...

Re: We are considering the 3000 series scope

Hi Lynn, First of all, Acoustics is a complex subject, and this is probably not the best forum to raise acoustic specific queries. However, we prefer to guide customers in achieving their measurement goals, rather than just responding with the technicalities of a measurement that may not be so relev...

Re: Synchronization error among channels

Hi layfolk, Any errors will always effect a measurement, but are only significant if they are larger than the maximum error that you can tolerate for your measurement and analysis. With oscilloscopes, the relative limits of vertical resolution and vertical accuracy are different to the relative limi...

Hi layfolk,

Could you tell me what you were intending to use the 5000 series PicoScope for (why you need need to know synchronization error)?

Re: 6402D AWG rise time

Hi Yossi, The Signal Generator for the 6000 series PicoScopes has a Bandwidth of DC (i.e. setting levels) and 30mHz - 20MHz, and the minimum 10-90% Rise Time is approximately 17.5nS (for a square wave at 20MHz). The Bandwidth specification means that at 20MHz any further frequency components (includ...
