Saving files as Matlab files

Post by yashborghate » Fri Jun 23, 2017 5:41 pm


I have a matlab program which uses data files from Picoscope. I have to convert the picoscope file to matlab file everytime I need the run the program. Is it possible to make a default setting such that whenever I save data form Picoscope it automatically coverts it to .mat file instead of manually converting it everytime.

picoscope /c "C:\<dir name>\*.psdata" /f mat - this does not work on all the company laptops. Trying to find another way around.

Hi Yash,

You can use the Alarms feature in PicoScope 6 to export data to .mat file format when a capture has been made (we recommend also saving to .psdata format if you wish to preserve the original data.
