Set up number of AWG pulses, limited pulse stream

Postby Henri » Sat Jun 18, 2016 7:39 am

Hi,

I'm setting up a test device which needs to stream PWM pulses (standard square wave) to special device. I need five pulses and once they are streamed pulse generator should stop. Imagine this like pushing a button for five times and then stop.

From arbitrary setting window I found number of cycles but it continued streaming selected pulses even selected cycle count was achieved.

It would be great if someone here guides me to achieve a method to limit pulses generated?

Ideal pulse stream:
- standard square wave form
- low 0V
- high 4 V (or highest possible if limited to lower)
- frequency 50Hz
- 50% high 50% low
- 5 cycles starting from 0V and ending to 0V which remains
- cycle start using mouse click or other trigger method

I'm very new with this Picoscope 2204A and oscilloscopes in general so assume lack of basic knowledge.

Thanks!
Henri

Hi Henri,

Unfortunately, the PicoScope 2204A and 2205A models do not support the ability to output a number of cycles of the waveform.

You would need to use the PicoScope 2206B or higher model from the PicoScope 2000 Series range (including 4-channel and MSO models) which have this feature. The output is limited to +/- 2 Volts.
