RunBlock on multiple channels (Pico 2204A)

Postby davidpruitt » Thu Jun 02, 2016 1:11 am

I have a Pico 2204A scope. Is it possible to set a trigger both on channel A and on channel B, and then have a block set up to run on each channel separately? It doesn't look like this is possible, based on what I am seeing that is available to me, because the RunBlock function doesn't accept any kind of "channel" parameter.

If this isn't possible, then is something like this possible with streaming? I know that when you do use the "run_streaming_ns" function, the "get_overview_buffers" function that we create will have data from both channels, but it doesn't seem to indicate which channel was triggered.

I have data coming in on both Channels A and B, and they are not synchronized with each other in any way. I need to be able to set up triggers on both and then read from them accordingly.

The hardware does not support this, you could code software triggers in your application to achieve this functionality.
