Is there a possibility to read binary saved scope files?

Post by justonwuckert »

Hi,

Is there a possibility to read binary files saved by picoscope software ?
May be it would be faster than conversion to text files ...
We need to get maximum amplitude of thousands waveforms.
Now we convert all binary files to the text and analyze text files.
This takes DAYS for analyzing.
One more problem is that after conversion we always have 25000 points
in the file, despite of the picoscope settings (1000 points for single waveform).

How can we read the binary files?

It is possible, depending your hacking and programming skills it will take 1 week or forever.

But you can use automation to convert psdata to csv files as far as I know.

You can write a simple C# / C++ / Python program to read the CSV files and produce the data you need.

That is far simpler than reverse engineering the psdata file.
