Re: Picoscope 3000 driver Windows XP

Hello bigjuergo, Sorry to hear you are experiencing problems with your device. If you have downloaded the latest version of PicoScope 6 you will already have the latest version of the driver installed. However if you wish to re-run the driver installer, you will find it in the following path: C:\Pro...

Re: runBlock: Waiting for device to become ready

Hello Hei, The reason the program has stopped at this point is because it is waiting for a trigger. You will need to connect a voltage source to input A which meets the trigger condition. Once the device has been triggered, the program will acquire a block of data, plot it and finally go on to disco...

Re: A PROPOS OF USB TO PARALLEL & BACK FOR OBSOLETE UNITS

Hi Glovisol, I haven't received a reply from the company yet possibly due to the festive period and the description does not really state it's capabilities in terms of standards used. It would be great to see this work; please fill us in on how you get along with it and some information on your setu...

Re: A PROPOS OF USB TO PARALLEL & BACK FOR OBSOLETE UNITS

Hello Glovisol, Have you already tried this device? It would depend on what standard the developers have implemented as most are designed to control printers only and even then not all are supported. Being such an old protocol, there have been many standards developed over the years so we would need...

Re: GNU Octave

Hello, I tried GNU octave with some of our devices today including the 6000 series but unfortunately did not work. I found that their implementation of the Instrument Control Toolbox is incomplete in comparison to Matlab and therefore missing some of the many functions required. It seems the functio...

Re: Error Code 9

Hello,

Unfortunately Error code 9 usually indicates the device is faulty. You may want to confirm this by trying it on another computer. If the unit still does not work please email us at support@picotech.com to arrange for the unit to be sent in to us.

Re: USB serial decoding useless?

Hi,

I have managed to test the 3203D which is the cheapest of the 3000 series devices and it is capable of decoding USB 12 Mbps.

If you require any further information, please feel free to contact us.

Re: USB serial decoding useless?

Hi, I have ran some tests with your device and unfortunately it turns out it does not possess sufficient buffer memory to capture USB 12 Mbps data rates but should be capable of 1.5 Mbps. I managed to decode USB 12 Mbps using a PicoScope 3204D which was perfectly capable of doing so. I haven't been ...

Re: setting (not probing) timebase

Timebase is a property of the Matlab Instrument Driver for which you must use the get and set commands. To set a property in the Matlab Instrument Driver, the syntax will follow: set (obj, propertyname, propertyvalue) For our timebase property, our code will look like this: set (ps5000aDeviceObj, '...

Re: PicoScope 2206A: Serial decoding fails over 38400 Baud

Hello Jurgen, Good to know you found the issue. Depending on the system, even slight mismatches in the baud rate can cause issues. For example, when I design a UART receiver using the bit-bang method, I would design it such that it would read exactly at the middle of each bit so any minor fluctuatio...

Re: PicoScope 2206A: Serial decoding fails over 38400 Baud

Hello Jurgen, Sorry to hear you are experiencing problems using the serial decoder. I have tested the serial decoder previously with 256 KBaud and a 2204A device; it is definitely capable of decoding such rates without any errors. Can you send me a screen shot of your settings and then use the singl...

Re: adding channel to PS4000A_IC_Generic_Driver_Block

Hello, 1. To use additional channels in this script, you must first enable channel B by passing a 1 to the Enabled parameter: [status.setChB] = invoke(ps4000aDeviceObj, 'ps4000aSetChannel', 1, 1 , 1, 8, 0.0); 2. Next you will need to add in a variable to pass the data from channel B: [numSamples, ov...
