How to use ADC-40

Postby ibestriker » Wed Feb 05, 2003 6:22 pm

Hi,

I have a complete receiver board. Does anyone know how to do measurement and observe the signal waves by using PicoScope software?
Do I need to put power or voltage input into the receiver board?

What is the dfference between picoscope and picolog?

Thank you. :lol:

Hi,

I'm not sure what you mean by receiver board, what does it recieve? If you don't put any power into a board, then you are unlikely to be able to measure any power coming out of the board.

PicoScope is Oscilloscope software which takes data in chucks, usually synchronised by a trigger.

PicoLog is data logging software, which captures continuous streams of data.

How can I observe the signal wave by using the software?

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for your answer. Actually I just have a receiver board which will receive a signal and produce a sound.

But I don't know how can I measure or observe the signal of the output of the receiver board by using ADC-40 since there is no wire or cable connected from the ADC-40. I don't know how can we relate this hardware (ADC-40) with my own hardware (receiver board).

I am so sorry, this might sound stupid to ask you those kind of questions, but I am really a beginner in Pico Technology. I hope somebody can help me answering those questions.

Thank you.

Hello Nazree,

You will need a scope probe, you can ring us up to order one of these. You can then use this to test different points on the board.

Can I use conventional oscilloscope probe?

Dear Matthew,

Could you please let me know whether or not I can use conventional oscilloscope probe? At the university laboratory, there a lot of oscilloscope. but I am not sure whether i can use it to test and measure.

What about the price of the scope probe sold?

Thanks.
