5244D what's the meaning of all those versions

Post by mroussin » Mon Aug 20, 2018 6:44 pm

This is the output I generate to see all the versions/serial. I would like to know more about a few of them.

Code: Select all

{
    "PICO_ANALOGUE_HARDWARE_VERSION": "0x08",
    "PICO_BATCH_AND_SERIAL": "0x04",
    "PICO_CAL_DATE": "0x05",
    "PICO_DIGITAL_HARDWARE_VERSION": "0x07",
    "PICO_DRIVER_VERSION": "0x00",
    "PICO_FIRMWARE_VERSION_1": "0x09",
    "PICO_FIRMWARE_VERSION_2": "0x0A",
    "PICO_HARDWARE_VERSION": "0x02",
    "PICO_IPP_VERSION": "0x0D",
    "PICO_KERNEL_VERSION": "0x06",
    "PICO_MAC_ADDRESS": "0x0B",
    "PICO_SHADOW_CAL": "0x0C",
    "PICO_USB_VERSION": "0x01",
    "PICO_VARIANT_INFO": "0x03"
}
What is PICO_ANALOGUE_HARDWARE_VERSION, PICO_CAL_DATE, PICO_DIGITAL_HARDWARE_VERSION, PICO_IPP_VERSION, PICO_KERNEL_VERSION?

Why is PICO_DRIVER_VERSION = 0?

I think PICO_HARDWARE_VERSION = 2 means that it's the Rev "2" of the board?

Why PICO_USB_VERSION is 1 when I'm using a 5244D which as USB3 on it? Is it the USB protocol version?

PICO_VARIANT_INFO = 3 probably means the 3rd product? A/B/D

Thanks,
Max.

If you check the Programmer's Guide in section 4.20 ps5000aGetUnitInfo

We are updating this for the 5444D, so a new version will be available soon.
