Custom Decoder

Postby bruceleo59 » Fri Jun 19, 2015 12:17 pm

The custom serial decoder has been mentioned several times but is not very well documented. With the new serial decoder in Picoscope 6.11.4.929 beta is there a custom decoder? I'm looking at decoding a ZMDi IC that is using a ZACWire protocol. (For a ZACWire description see page 21 of http://www.zmdi.com/sites/default/files ... -11-01.pdf .)

I am interested in information on the custom serial decoders as well.

To be more direct...

When will information on Custom Decoders be made available to your customers?

As we have mentioned before we have re written the serial decoding engine from the ground up, after uncovering issues when we tried to implement custom serial decoding on the previous version.

Until this reaches the stable release branch we will not be looking at implementing a custom decoder, however the development team are always willing to look at adding additional protocols if the demand is there.

I do recall that. And I am happy to see the new decode engine is operational in the 6.11.4 Beta.

Excellent information! Thanks very much. So there is no Custom Decoder (yet) to be documented. That makes sense.

however the development team are always willing to look at adding additional protocols if the demand is there.

I think Pico is doing a really excellent job of supporting a wide variety of protocols! I can't speak to their quality (yet), but there's an impressive range of coverage there already.

My own interest is (mostly) in customizing the generic CAN decoder, for several specific variants. J1939 is most important to me, but others such as ISO-15765 and ISO-14229, CanOPEN, etc. are also of interest. It was about a year ago now that Karunen informed me (via a Support exchange) that this would (some day) be possible.

I'm glad that the rewrite has been completed, and looking forward to a stable version status, so that new development can proceed.
