PicoScope 5203 data acquisition system

Postby 249573317 » Wed May 04, 2011 2:45 am

Hello:
I want to design a 1GS/s-speed data acquisition system based on Labview to drive PicoScope 5203 PC oscilloscope using PS5000.dll.
interface driven design use the function of int32_t _ps5000OpenUnit@4(int16_t *handle).
sampling-data control use the function of int32_t _ps5000GetTimebase@28(int16_t handle, uint32_t timebase, int32_t noSamples, int32_t *timeIntervalNanoseconds, int16_t oversample, int32_t *maxSamples, uint16_t segmentIndex)。
we can get a sampling rate of 500MS/s.but,when we chang the sampling rate of 500MS/s to 1GS/s,the Labview can not run.
I need some help.
thank you very much.

By default both channels are enabled, you will need to disable chB this is why your sample rate is only half.

Kind regards

I,m grateful for your quick response.
I set "int32_t channel"in the function of setup Channel B from 1 to 0 ,chB is disabled.but the labview still can not run on the sampling rate of 1GS/s

A bug pas been fixed which may solve this problem.
A new PS5000.dll will be in the next SDK release. > R10.1.0.17

Hi there,
I also use the same picoscope for data acquisition. Before I installed winXp 32 in my PC. Now I used windows 7 64. It works for me after trying several time...

Thank you...
