Streaming with different Picoscopes ?

Post by Reynaulu » Thu Nov 29, 2018 11:44 am

Good morning,

I am currently in possession of a Pico2206BMSO and trying to make a streaming python program for recording long data. However the Pico that we will order soon will be a Pico4000, it will be the Pico we really want to use.

Therefore I wanted to ask if what I develop for streaming on the Pico2000 will be easily translated on the Pico4000 ?
I wish to not "waste" time on developing streaming on the 2000 Pico if it cannot be translated on the Pico4000.

What do you think ?

Best regards !

Do you know which model in the PicoScope 4000 series you are looking at ?

Hello,

We should take a PicoScope 4262.

There will be some overhead in changing the functions, however the underlying principles are the same. If you have time available now you will be able to sort out any potential issues so that you can proceed more quickly when you get the PicoScope 4262

Dear Martyn,

Thank you for your answer. Therefore I will keep going trying to make it work for the Pico2206 in a first time.

By the way, do you know if there is an available example of streaming for Pico in python ?
I am trying to run the one from the deprecated directory https://github.com/picotech/picosdk-python-examples , but I have some issues with it. I assume it is because the file is no longer "official".
(I should probably open a new topic on the forum)

Best regards
