Re: Custom protocol decoders ?

Hi Martyn. Thanks for replying. I have several protocols I wish to look at, but my question is about providing a framework to allow people to decode new ones. I'm guessing not an easy task for an individual to create such a framework using your SDK, but yes possible. I think it would be easier for y...

Re: Custom protocol decoders ?

or better yet, how about sigrok support for assorted Picoscopes ? I just stumbled on PulseView and it looks way cool with lots of protocols. It looks even more extensible with its own HOWTO:

Custom protocol decoders ?

Hi Forum. I really like the way Smartscope has allowed for the creation of custom decoders. I think this would be a useful addition to Picoscope software. Possible for Picoscope to do something similar ?

Re: Pressure transducers powered by Picoscope 4444 ?

Thanks for info Benno. Would be nice if Picoscope exposed this PicoConnect ( correct term ? ) stuff including it's control with API so people can create custom/sensors and embedded apps. I'm considering using this scope as the basis for a guided test platform for a particular industry. I think it is...

Re: Picoscope software 10MS/s streaming, 4444 capable of 50M

Thanks for reply. I'd like to use the mask or persistence to show glitches over time without the need to record data. I'm not sure what sample rate is needed yet, but I noticed this limitation in documentation. Also see that automotive scope is capable of 20MS/s.

Picoscope software 10MS/s streaming, 4444 capable of 50MS/s

Hi Forum. Why is Picoscope software only capable of 10MS/s USB streaming when, for example, 4444 is capable of 50MS/s ?

Pressure transducers powered by Picoscope 4444 ?

Hi Forum. I'd like to take advantage of the built-in power supply of this scope to power transducers for a pressure application. There seem to be lots of inexpensive transducers ( e.g. Honeywell PX3 ) whose supply is 5VDC with ratiometric output. I should have some DSUB solid contacts for crimping (...

Re: Understanding the difference between 4444 and 4425 ?

Thanks for the replies. So is there anything that a floating single-ended scope ( within design parameters i.e. 20MHz, 14bit....) does better than a differential scope ? And what of the software question from my original post ? Is automotive software a superset of non-automotive ? I would like use w...

Understanding the difference between 4444 and 4425 ?

Hi Forum. Can somebody tell me the difference between these scopes ? On paper they look similar other than the D-sub connectors and related functionality. Did the front-end or back-end change from 4425 to 4444 ? I'm also confused by the delineation between automotive and non automotive scopes. To me...
