PicoScope SDK Mac ARM based drivers

Post by briantrulove »

I'm running the PS 7 Mac software on my Mac with M1 (ARM) based processor and it works fine but when I install the SDK and try to run the Python scripts, the driver seems incompatible.

picosdk.errors.CannotOpenPicoSDKError: PicoSDK (ps2000a) not compatible (check 32 vs 64-bit): dlopen(libps2000a.dylib, 0x0006): tried: 'libps2000a.dylib' (mach-o file, but is an incompatible architecture (have 'x86_64', need 'arm64e' or 'arm64'))


Any chance you can publish Mac Arm compatible SDK?

Hi

Currently Arm64 drivers are being developed, if you want to be notified when these get released then you can sign up to our newsletter otherwise watching the website will let you see when they're released.

It is also possible to use Rosetta to run an x86 program on the M1 Macs, if this is an option in the meantime.

Hello,

I am on a team at Prusa Research.

We just bought a Pico TC-08 for thermal tests. It's quite disappointing that there are no drivers for ARM.

We wanted to set up a test with a Raspberry Pi to stream the data to a database.

Now we need to use a laptop, which is a bit annoying.

We hope you release the ARM driver soon.

If you use the 32bit version of the Pi then there is a build of PicoLog 6 for this which can be downloaded from https://www.picotech.com/downloads with drivers for the TC08

Hello @Martyn

Thank you for the adivce,

We got it working on 32bit OS, we are quite happy with it.

Please push your development team to release the 64 bit version,
