using built-in function generator in Picoscope 2208A

Postby savenature » Thu Jul 02, 2015 2:46 pm

Hello, I have a Pico2208A. I connect the AWG to Channel A in the back of the scope using a BNC cable. Using the Picoscope6 software, I can generate a signal and nicely see the signal waveform (whether it is sine, square, etc) on Channel A.

My question is I want to do the same thing using Labview. Is there any example Labview code that anyone can share to do that with Picoscope 2208A and Labview (32bits). I see that there is a sample program that comes with the SDK with the name "PicoScope2000aExampleAWG.vi". Can this program be utilized to conduct the task above?

Any Labview example source code that will help is highly appreciated.

The Labview examples for the PS2000A driver covers most capture modes of the scope including the AWG.
You need to combine one of the capture mode vi's and the AWG vi.
I suggest combining the block capture to start, this is the easiest to use.
