Decoding UART using api

Post by robbie.galfrin » Sun Nov 26, 2017 8:07 am


I have the picoscope 3205D, and I wish to decode standard UART protocol. ( i can do this using the pico software)
How can I do that?
Couldn't find a suitable function.

Thank you,

Hi Robbie,

The API functions only provide you with the capability setting up the scope and obtaining the raw data from the device driver in addition to controlling the signal generator (where applicable).

To undertake decoding of serial protocols when writing your own application to control a PicoScope, you will need to implement your own algorithm.

I have raised a new feature request as we are looking into providing additional tools to help with developing applications with our products.
