Pico 4262 Low pass and Bandwidth filter

Post by Albert Ding »

Is it necessary to develop a custom function for specifying specific frequency levels when working with PicoScope? The provided function in the PicoScope Programmers Guide, ps4000SetBwFilter, lacks the capability to control the frequency. Also is the cutoff frequency for ps4000SetBwFilter set to 200kHz?

Most pico scopes do this in software, after the sampling is done and calculated in the OS you use.
If they do this in hardware with custom bandwidths the cost of the scope would double or maybe tripple.
