Picoscope 3000 series not working on fiber optic extension

Postby vincentboschet » Thu Dec 01, 2016 1:50 pm

Hi,

we are trying to get a Picoscope 3205 working on a fiber optic USB3 extension (Lindy).
The fiber extender works fine with a USB3 memory stick, but won't with the USB3 picoscope.
Obviously the Picoscope requires the bidirectional USB2 line additionally to the USB3 lines.
Is there a workaround to get the picoscope running with just the USB3 connection ?

greetings,
Vincent

Do you mean 3205D or an earlier 3205 device ?

Initial communication between the driver and the scope is USB2, and this is where the problem will be. You will need an extender that offers USB3 but with support for USB2, unfortunately most extenders are fixed USB3.

If you email support@picotech.com they may be able to advise if a suitable product exists.
