a question about trigger (C, ps6403C)

Post by chinhao » Fri Oct 30, 2015 9:57 am

Dear PicoTech,

I am now writing my controling code for my PS6403C. I am using block mode to take data. After I set my trigger, then I use ps6000RunBlock to collect data.

As far as I know, this function, ps6000RunBlock, will collect data automatically once the trigger is fired. I am wondering if there is any method to know if the trigger is fired? I check the programmer's guide ,there is another function called "ps6000IsReady', but this one is also for telling me that the data is collected, which is not really what I want.

Thank you for your time and help.

Hello John,

There no way to tell if the trigger has fired, once runblock has started. Only ps6000BlockReady callback or poll
using ps6000IsReady to indicate the capture has finished.
