Pico 3403D, Matlab R2012b win7, Error using icdevice/connect

Postby xukl » Mon Jul 20, 2015 8:07 pm

Hello,

We have an error when connect the picoscope 3403D with Matlab R2012b (32bit version) on windows 7

Following your instruction in the forum and also youtube, we have tried these steps

1) mex -setup
2) check all the files as following
% - ps3000a.mdd
% - PS3000a.dll & ps3000aWrap.dll (Windows version of MATLAB only)
% - PS3000aMFile & ps3000aWrapMFile
% - PicoStatus.m
% - ps3000aChangePowerSource.m
% - adc2mv.m & mv2adc.m (located in the Functions directory)

3) run the example 'PS3000a_IC_Generic_Driver_1buffer_RapidBlock'

then we have this error information

Code: Select all

If this error is not an instrument error, use MIDEDIT to inspect
the driver.

Error in PS3000a_IC_Generic_Driver_1buffer_RapidBlock (line 59)
connect(ps3000a_obj);


Could you pls tell me how can I fix that? Thanks a lot!

Hello xukl,

The PicoScope 3403D is not fully compatible with the Instrument Driver that you are using. Please download the Instrument Driver package from the MATLAB Central File Exchange page

You will need the files from the 'ps3000a_BETA' folder and this also has published html files for some of the examples.

Are you using a 32-bit or 64-bit version of MATLAB?

You will also need up to date drivers so I will respond via your support e-mail request with links to where you can download this.

Regards,
Hitesh
