Which language for my project

Postby viral » Thu Apr 21, 2016 9:04 am

Hi i'm Vincent, I'm french so I apologize for my english.

I have to do a project with the PicoScope 5442A, I have to memorize some signals then export the data on word or excel and do some formatting.

For you, what is the best language for this project ?

A report look like this

Thanks in advance

Hi Vincent,

You could use our SDK Excel VBA examples. This will save you having to import the data.

You can download the Software Development Kit from our website at:
https://www.picotech.com/download/
In the right hand column click on PicoSDK 32 bit or PicoSDK 64 bit to download.(Use stable version)

On 64-bit version of windows you need to find out what version of MS office you are running 32 or 64 bit
(In office click on file - Help - look under about MS office)
Then run open the correct example 32-bit (ps5000a.xlsm) or 64-bit (ps5000a_x64.xlsm)
If you have 32-bit windows just run the 32-bit example. The default location for these files are-
C:\PicoSDK\PS5000A\Excel\

You could also use MATLAB as you can publish the results to MS word. MATLAB examples are also contained in the SDK package.

Hi

Thanks you for your reply, I tried the Excel VBA progrm and it's really nice but I want to know if it's possible to use trigger , FFT and plot everything on Excel.

Thanks in advance :)

Hi viral,

The Excel VBA examples allow you to use the trigger functions and plot the data but you would have to implement your own routine to calculate the FFT of the signal.

As AndrewA mentioned, MATLAB can be used and this provides FFT functions.
