Converting digital data to sound on PC

Postby Chris Stamford-Burrows » Wed Dec 30, 2009 1:17 pm

I am using PicoScope 3424 and PicoScope6 software.

I am using PicoScope to convert audible analogue signals to digital for display on PicoScope6 software.

Is ther a way to make these 'sounds' audible on the PC? (quality not important)

If not. is there another Pico Product which can take low frequency digital data at PC USB and make it audible on the PC/Laptop's default sound system ??

Hi Chris,
We do not have anything which can do what you want, sorry. It should not be too difficult to do but there has not been a call for it so far and we have limited engineering resources. If anyone can write a routine for it we would be happy to pass it on.
Regards,

OK - thanks
Does the data from PC Oscilloscope appear at the USB port as readable ASCII data (e.g. x,y figures as in the text file)? Or is it a PicoScope binary format?

Hi,
You cannot access data input to the scope directly from the USB connection. Data has to be processed through the scope hardware and the software driver. The best you can do is to write your own program using the software development kit to extract data and dump it directly to PC memory or Hard Drive. PicoScope6 can dump the signal data to disk in .txt or .csv format but only after capture has finished, not as a continual stream.
