GitHub TC-08 Python example code on Mac BigSur

Post by neoflash »


I have installed PicoSDK- and picolog 6 on Mac. The PicoLog 6 works fine.

I have also installed GitHub package from here:

Then I go to the example python code: usbtc08Examples/


The error message I got is as below. Not sure which step goes wrong?

Code: Select all

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 9, in 
    from picosdk.usbtc08 import usbtc08 as tc08
  File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.8/lib/python3.8/site-packages/picosdk/", line 19, in 
    usbtc08 = usbtc08lib()
