Postby Rust » Sat Jan 19, 2013 8:03 pm

Hello :)

Is there any possibility to use Picoscope 2204 on an Android Tablet? Is there an app that can be used?

I only use it for simple measurements in auto industry

Best Regards

We currently do not offer any support for the Android platform.

It is something that will be considered in the future but it is not on the short or medium term plans. It is not just about porting software, we will need to consider how the devices are powered.

I dont think powering the device with android tablets is a real issue. An adapter with a 5v supply connector is easily designed. There are hdmi interfaces that use this concept. I too would buy a picoscope if I could use it with my android tablet and an additional power adaper would not break my budget. How about you do the SW porting and I design the adapter?

Yes, using a power adapter is fine. However one of the expectations of using a tablet with the PicoScope would be about achieving true portability, so a solution that does not require mains power would be better, and that is where the difficulty comes in.

FYI we do have PicoScope running on a BeagleBoard http://www.picotech.com/support/topic14347.html
