Problem getting started with Matlab

Post by Richard » Fri Feb 15, 2019 12:55 pm

Hi

I'm trying to connect my PicoScope 5444D MSO to Matlab R2018b with Instrument Control Toolbox and have followed the setup instructions in the YouTube video 'Using PicoScope Instrument Drivers with MATLAB'. I have 'PicoScope Support Toolbox' and 'picotech-picosdk-ps5000a-matlab-instrument-driver-b314622' folders installed and added to the Matlab path. However when I try to run the example script 'PS5000A_ID_Block_Example.m' it trips up right at the start and I get the following message :

Warning: Disconnect: No devices found.
Error using icdevice (line 316)
An error occurred while executing the driver create code.
No units found.
If the error is not an instrument error, use MIDEDIT to inspect the driver.

Error in PS5000A_ID_Block_Example (line 74)
ps5000aDeviceObj = icdevice('picotech_ps5000a_generic', '');

I have the 5444D connected via USB3 and it works fine with PicoScope 6. Can anyone tell me where I am going wrong ? Thanks.

I managed to solve the problem by installing PicoSDK 64bit ver 10.6.13.58 which supports the 5444D MSO.
Thanks.
