Api/fonction c++

Post by hanane »

Hello,

I am doing a 3-month internship in which I have to drive a Picoscop via a test program and I am creating scripts with the different APIs in C ++ language. The picoscope I use is the 4824. On this site I found several examples but none correspond to this model with C ++. Do you have libraries, functions, code; API lists to be provided to me please.

Thank you so much,
Cordially,

You can get everything over here on github

https://github.com/picotech

I think you need the 4000A sdk samples for the 4824

Hi Benno,
Thank you very much for the quick response!
But for this model to compare with the others there is hardly any example of card, like for example the evaluation of the rise time, the reading of the samples or the configuration of the channels. Do you have examples of this kind to send me please?

Thank you

I would suggest you look specifically at https://github.com/picotech/picosdk-c-e ... 4000aCon.c as this file shows how to setup channels, triggers, and collect data in three different ways ( Block, RapidBlock, and Streaming )

What it doesn't provide is examples on what to do with the data once it has been collected, such as calculation of rise times etc, as this will be application and user specific.

Yes thank you.

Indeed that's what I'm trying to do. Even if it remains different for each of the user's needs, do you have an example script for calculating the rise time or something else that I could adapt according to my needs?

We don't have a script for this but what you need to do is :-

Find the steady state low level
Find the steady state high level
Subtract low from high to find the difference
Calculate the 10% and 90% values of the difference ( or 20/80 )
Then look at the data set and see how many samples there are between (steady state low value + 10% value) and (steady state low value + 90% value)
Using this number of samples and the sample interval used for the collection you can calculate the rise time

API macro

Post by hanane »

Hello,

I come to you to find out if for APIs you only use low-level APIs or there is the possibility to use the one given by the software I will send you. In your user guide, I see that we can use macro, I wanted to know if you had a record with its content please.


Thank you
