Function generator frequency range is not DC to 100KHz

Post by Delv31 » Wed Oct 24, 2012 1:13 pm

hello,
i'l using picoscope with Function generator.
in description i can see :
Function generator frequency range DC to 100KHz but i can't operate ( arbitrary import) under 30mHz.
Is it possible to adjust under 30mHz?

Thanks for reply.

Hi Vincent,

This is a limitation of PicoScope 6.

If you use the Software Development Kit, you should be able to achieve frequencies below 30mHz.

Hope this helps.

Hi,
Ok i'm going to use Software Development Kit.
is it expected to adjust Function generator frequency range DC to 100KHz in future version of picoscope 6 ?

Thanks,

Delv Vincent

Hi Vincent,

I think this will remain the same - I suspect it is due to the way the AWG is implemented.
