Hi,
In the PS3000Acon.c
The include line "#include <libps3000a-1.0/ps3000aApi.h>" seems to be unable to find libps3000a-1.0 but instead find the libps3000a-1.1 ( which seems to be the correct as ps300alinux lib version is 1.1)
So:
- this is just a miss to replace the old 1.0 by 1.1 in the PS3000Acon.c
- or there is a new version of the PS3000Acon.c ?

thanks for your help.

We are looking to provide one shortly. This will add support for some recent additions to the 3000 range.

Hi,
I just want to specify that from the last simple tests i perform on the Linux SDK and the PS3000Acon.c I noted that the refrence software didn't ask to specify if we are testing DC or AC Electrical Signal. and when reading the soure code i noted that it's set DCcoupled Parameter to TRUE which is mean DC "? "

So i suppose that the picoscope perform an auto-detection fo AC/DC ,or do i have to change it in the source code.

My Last note is that it seems to me that even if we are using DC input signal and the DCcoupled parameter is setted DC/TRUE , the picoscope behaves as if it's capturing AC signal, which could explain the negative voltage i have seen when testing with a 13V DC Electrical input signal

Best regards
Haithem

I'm rather disappointed with Linux support.
Can you give an ETA of functional 64-bit Linux drivers for the 3204 A/B series?
I'm willing to test some prerelease candidates if this is in the near term.

I can't give an ETA on this, every time I get to doing some work on these I get pulled for other issues. I will let you know when have something that requires testing so thanks for the offer.
