Python SDK : Device open failed with PICO_INFO_UNAVAILABLE

Postby amess » Tue Mar 13, 2018 5:27 pm

Hi, I'm trying to run the block_capture.py example in the Python SDK .. but I get this:

Code: Select all
ERRO: Device open failed with PICO_INFO_UNAVAILABLE

With some print statements prior to this my driver : serial is as follows:

Code: Select all
ps4000a: CU640/144

I have a model 4824. Not sure how to debug from here ...
Also, are there any plans to have a Python 3.x version of the SDK? Thanks!

Hi amess,

Which operating system are you using?

Have you installed the python files from our GitHub repository?

We are looking to provide Python 3 code but it might be some time before this is available. You can try using a tool to convert the code from Python 2 to 3.

Update: We have resolved an issue in the Python bindings. Please update the files from GitHub and try again.
