Data transfer started signal

Post by MattC15 »

Hi,

I'm using the SDK from GitHub to use streaming mode to get data from my 2000 series Pico scope.
I was wondering if there is a way to signal to the SDK when a data transfer has started on the Pico scope, I want this as I only need to capture waveform data during a data transfer.

Thanks for any help.

Hi MattC15,

Sorry for the delay in answering.

Not sure I understand what it is that you want to do.

If you are streaming the data, then you will only be capturing data before (not during) it is transferred to the computer. If, by your question, you mean is there a way to let your application (running in the SDK) know when the capture has started before any data is transferred to the computer, (e.g. after the first sample has been captured in streaming Mode) so that you don't have the 10's of milliseconds delay of establishing a USB connection (or timing uncertainty associated with it) and then transferring the data, then the answer is No.

Regards,
