Capture IR data with 2205

Postby Blademan » Tue May 13, 2008 3:26 pm

I have a program that an ex colleage wrote for the ADC200 in VB6. This captures IR code from the scope. We now need to upgrade to USB devices and I have bought a 2205 to do the same thing. As the old software does everything I want, can the code for the ADC200 be converted to use the 2205? Am I better off buying USB converters for the ADC200? (We have several units). I have spent some time on trying to convert but not getting anywhere. Using the examples I have been able to get the existing software to 'see' the 2205, I just can not work out how to get the data off.

Any help would be great!

updating code from adc200 to PS2000

Postby Blademan » Thu May 22, 2008 10:22 am

Is there a call similar to adc200_set_oversample? It is one of the sticking points in transfering the code from the adc200. If not, I take it I do not need to worry about oversample?

If a call does not exist for the PS2000 as it did for the adc200, is it the case that those paremeters are not required for a clean capture of IR code?

Any help appreciated, really :D

It is a bit lonely out here in cyberspace :)

Hi Blademan,

Please have a look at the PS3000 user manual for a list of the function calls, you will need to change the names from ps3000 to ps2000. We do not have a technical reference manual for the ps2000s yet.
