independent control of channels

Postby reza » Thu Dec 30, 2010 7:01 pm

Hi and merry Christmas!

I have two questions about picoscope 5203 before buying it:

1- I need to change the timescale of both channels independently and also sometimes I want to stop acquisition in one channel while the other channel is acquiring the signal. Can I do this by using "picoscope 5203"?
Also can I do this if I implement my own interface in vc++ environment?

2- Another question is: Is there related dll (delivered by company) to design my own interface in VC++ environment for signal acquisition?

Many thanks and Regards,
Reza (from Barcelona)

You cannot stop acquisition in 1 channel while the other channel is acquiring a signal.

You can disable 1 channel independantly of another, so you could collect data on both channels, then disable one of the channels.

You can develop your own applications using the SDK, which can be downloaded from the website


Select PicoScope 5203 in step 1 (select the product)
Select Software Development kit in step 2 (Software version)

This provides the PS5000 dll, and includes example code in C/C++
