Multiple pico scopes working together

Postby Guest » Sat Mar 22, 2008 11:18 am

I investigationg the pico scopes.

1. Is it possible to use two or more pico-scopes together; maybe triggering on one channel?

2.Does the software allow for this?

Hello Guest,

It is possible to run more than one USB oscilloscope using multiple instances of PicoScope 6, but each unit is independent.

Multiple scopes

Thanks John.

I find this quite odd. Technically it is quite simple to implement.

I would have designed the scopes to have trigger in and trigger out bnc connectors. Multiple units could be connected in a circular fasion. The software could then set up any channel as the trigger start, force a trigger in the associated unit and measure the delay through the triggers. The software could then re-construct all the channel's data, sequence allowing for delays and display it on screen.

Maybe something to think about at pico?
