I have a PicoScope 3206 and was attempting to use ETS mode and wanted to use the the Auto Trigger After triggering capability. I have written my own software and setting the ETS mode to fast and setting the trigger with the Auto Trigger After to a given value appears to work fine(no errors are reported by the set_ets_mode or set_trigger functions), until you run the block and the device never triggers. Using the PicoScope software it is impossible to have both the ETS Mode and Auto Trigger After checkboxes checked at the same time. So I am assuming that these two features cannot be used together(there is no mention of this in the documentation, however).
I am trying to collect a sine wave that repeatedly sweeps in one direction only(like the 3206's function generator with a repeated sweep without dual slope). The frequencies are such that ETS mode is needed. I know the duration of the total sweep(the time it takes to go from the start frequency to the stop frequency) and wanted to set the trigger to trigger after that time such that a reliable ETS reading can be taken.
Question 1: Can ETS mode be used to capture a repeating sweeped signal?
Question 2: Can ETS mode and Auto Trigger After be used at the same time? The PicoScope software does not allow it; is it possible with my own?
