I'm a newbie here. I started to work with PS3406B. I would like to write my own data acquisition system based on that device working on Ubuntu 13.10. How should I start?

Hi magikqich,

You can start by installing libps3000a driver as instructed at http://www.picotech.com/linux.html.

Note that you may need to restart your system, as drivers upon first install create group permissions that need to become effective in all sessions.

It will put example in /opt/picoscope/share/doc/libps3000a
Copy that folder to your home directory (or any other for your convenience), configure, compile and run as follows:
Code: Select all

To get more information about the api you can use the same documentation as for Windows drivers, available at http://www.picotech.com/document/pdf/ps3000abpg.en-10.pdf
