runBlock: Waiting for device to become ready

Post by heiheinima » Tue Jan 26, 2016 8:30 pm

Hi everyone,
I try to use matlab (64bit) to read some data from 5243A, I installed the SDK, copied picoipp.dll ps5000a.dll, ps5000amfile, ps5000awrap, ps5000aWrap_thunk_pcwin64.dll picotech_ps5000a_generic.mdd ps5000a_thunk_pcwin64.dll. ps5000awrapMFile into my matlab directory, and try to compile example PS5000a_ic_generic_driver_rapid_block to read the data from oscilloscope to my matlab.
The program stuck at runBlock: Waiting for device to become ready, and it does not proceed, could anyone help me resolve this?
Thank you :D ,
Hei.

Hello Hei,

The reason the program has stopped at this point is because it is waiting for a trigger. You will need to connect a voltage source to input A which meets the trigger condition. Once the device has been triggered, the program will acquire a block of data, plot it and finally go on to disconnect the device.
