Re: 3206D does not show real time data

Hi Anik86p , Actually, ps3000aGetTimebase( ) is a check for your benefit, so that you can pass the values that you should be passing to ps3000aRunBlock( ). You use it to make sure that you have selected the correct values to use for Timebase (to get the sampling interval you need) and the correct va...

Re: Decoding CAN-FD signal

Hi GuidoW,

The stuffed bit counter should be using Gray code. While we are looking into this, do you have an example data file that I can pass on to our development team.

Re: 2406B Block Mode

Hi lamah,

Yes, it is possible and already done (for a much smaller block) in one of the Programming Languages/Environments that we support. You can find an example of this on our Github page here: https://github.com/picotech, which you can then download.

Re: Pico triggers multiple times in a short time

HI liuai987, Could you answer the following: 1/ Would this be In PicoScope 6, or would you be using the Software Development Kit? 2/ What PicoScope are you using? 3/ What sort of accuracy do you need (e.g. do you want to measure the height or rise-time with accuracy and if so what accuracy, or do yo...

Re: data collection/save rate

Hi weschang, The only way to conclusively answer your original question would be for you to paste the data files for a capture on both Scopes, with the Channel A of both Scopes set to the Input Range of ±20 mV, and nothing connected to the Channel A inputs apart from a 50Ω termination (e.g. in the f...

Re: Frequency Generator not Outputting Correct Amplitudes?

Hi aiyabunni, The offsets and amplification look OK, if you're using the x10 Probe switch i.e.: The second screenshot would be correct because the signal offset is 100mV, which gets divided down to 10mV. and the third one because a 1V amplitude (i.e. 1V peak) is being divided down by 10 to ≈100mV pe...

Re: 3206D does not show real time data

Hi Anik86p, The Bandwidth of the PicoScope 3206D is 200MHz, This means that pure sinewaves of 500MHz will be beyond what the PicoScope can capture according to its specifications, and therefore Pulses of 500MHz will be way beyond what the PicoScope is capable of capturing (see the information under ...

Re: data collection/save rate

Hi weschang, All I can say from what I can see on the left is that there appears to be no significant difference between the noise for the 2 Scopes. However, without knowing the absolute scaling that you're using, i.e. what proportion of the full-scale Input Range the amplitudes on the left represen...

Re: How does PicoScope use external scripted program cursors?

Hi xianbaownag, Unfortunately, this isn't supported in PicoScope 6. We only have CLI functions for specific mouse selections of long standing functions. Also, I'm guessing that you mean position the cursor at a specific X-axis value (which you would need complete control over your display to perform...

Re: picoscope 2207 win 10

Hi ianes,

Yes it will. You can use the latest PicoScope 6 software for it (as shown below):
PS6 download for PS2207.png
...which runs on Windows 10, and which you can download from here: https://www.picotech.com/download/softw ... _14_36.exe.

Re: Pico 2204 and hantek 65

Hi rudzis2, We use Custom Probes for scaling of Voltage and Current Probes that don't use our standard ranges (and even if you were using the correct ratios, you have to be careful because the limits also need to be specified). If you post the specs, (or a link to them) for your Hantek probe, I can ...

Re: Questions about 5244D MSO frequency measurement

Hi oasis2016, The Automatic Frequency Measurement from the Measurement statistics tool is not wrong, it's just not what you were expecting. The problem happens to be that you're applying the measurement to a corrupted waveform. Let me explain exactly what I mean by that. The Automatic Frequency Meas...

Re: Cannot choose ENABLE FILTER on PicoScope 6

Hi hellochipboi, If you're measuring a constant (steady state) PWM signal, then you can also capture many waveforms (using a Repeat Trigger) and then use Waveform Averaging to reduce the noise (see here: https://www.picotech.com/library/oscilloscopes/waveform-averaging). This, again, would be a Math...
