Hi Karthik,

It would be better to export the data to a text file and then read the data into LabVIEW. If you can process a binary file, then you can export to a MATLAB file from PicoScope 6.

The psdata file format is proprietary and can only be read by PicoScope 6.

To read .mat files in Labview, use the Matlab data plugin http://www.ni.com/example/29178/en/ . After installing that into Labview, use the Storage/Data Plugin sub-palette in Labview's file reading palette. You will want to open the file, then Read Data [channel] with "A" for the Name of the channel. Etcetera for other channels. Then close the file.

Attached is an image of my Labview block diagram. Hope this helps.
