PicoScope 6 file output format

Post by Nmalan » Tue Oct 12, 2010 6:41 pm

I really like the PicoScope 6 software but would like to save the captured data in a format that can be used by the data crunching application we normally use. This software is known as DaDisp, a very popular spreadsheet-like data analysis application. The format this app uses is really simple, basically a text header describing the captured data stuck on top of the binary data. It would be REALLY nice if Picotech would consider adding this format to the Save As.. options.
Alternatively, I could write a format converter app if I knew how PicoScope 6 saves its data.
If you are interested, I could post the format of the DaDisp data file.
PS: I can use the already available text data formats, but the files are really to big to be practical.

You can use the binary matlab format in version 4. For more information please have a look at the user manual under section 6.1.1.1.2

Hope this helps.
