ps4000a 14-bit mode

Postby slangendorf » Fri Nov 03, 2017 12:55 am

Hello,

I am using a picoscope 4444. In the Pico software, there is a dropdown menu to change between 12-bit and 14-bit modes, and I typically use the 14-bit mode. Is there a way to do this in LabView? I am using the ps4000a driver, 32 bit, and the block mode example code from github. I see some control of downsampling -- is that related, e.g., 14-bit mode uses more downsampling or something?

Regards,
Sam

Hi Sam,

We have been updating examples to handle the PicoScope 4444, but have yet to update the LabVIEW examples in order to select the resolution.

This should be updated in due course with a drop-down on the front panels like the PicoScope5000a examples.

You can either use the ps4000aOpenUnitWithResolution() function to set the resolution when opening the connection to the unit or use the ps4000aSetDeviceResolution() function after having opened the connection.

Regards,
