How to trigger on glitches?

Postby tommyjunge » Sat Dec 01, 2012 7:58 am

Hi,

I have studied the trigger modes of Picoscope6 in combination with my Picoscope5203, but I couldn't find what I need.
Here is what I want to do: I want to trigger on glitches which are very short impulses. So, the trigger should be fired if two slopes (either rising or falling or any) are closer together in time than a specified maximum time.
Is this possible and how would I activate such a mode?

BTW, is it possible to customize trigger events to also allow for more complicated trigger schemes?

Thanks, Tom

Ok, I have found Advanced Triggers which should do the job, but for me this somehow doesn't work.
Have I misunderstood the concept or is there a problem in the software?
I am also seeing a problem in persistent mode.
For a summary of my problems see here:

Thanks for looking into this, Tom

I have verified that this is not working as expected, and have forwarded the issue to the development team.

Hi Martyn,

many thanks for looking into this.
When can I expect a patched software version with a working interval trigger? Beta would be ok.
I need this trigger for my work.

Thanks, Tom

We have just released a beta although as we are closed until the New Year I am unable to check if this bug has been fixed in this release. You can find the beta here http://labs.picotech.com
