Re: Picoscope 6.14.23.5207 crashes when external power is connected

that should be the saved startup configuration.

Will try with empty config.

Re: Picoscope 6.14.23.5207 crashes when external power is connected

The software crashes on startup. Without the external power (only usb power) the software runs normal. wen picoscope is started with external power connected it crashes on startup as noted on the images in the first post. When plugging in the external power after picoscope has started and is acquiri...

Re: Problem with CAN-BUS decoding

I have the idea you miss the start of the packet.
Can you set the trigger somewhat later so the whole message is visible.

Re: Problem with CAN-BUS decoding

Can you post a .psdata file (or link to some cloud storage with a .psdata)
An preferably can-h and can-l at the same time e.g. ch-A and ch-B

Picoscope 6.14.23.5207 crashes when external power is connected

I have a PS4444 when I connect the external power to the scope pico scope crashes on startup.
If I plug in the external power after the software is started there is no problem. (trace.004.xml)
The other traces trace.001.xml - trace.005.xml are from crashing startups.

Re: Streaming

You need to use the SDK for this.

There are some samples on the picoscope github

Re: Picoscope 2204a - RC circuit - wrong RC measure

The sig gen has a output resistance (i think 600 ohm)
so you have actually 800 ohm and 150 nf.

for this low values of your R you need to take this into account.

Re: Longtime streaming mode via USB problem

I have done streaming 10Ms/sec for about 4 weeks 24/7 so it is possible.

Also done 4 ch 5Ms/sec (so a total 20Ms/sec) for about 8 hours.

O and both of the above was done on a USB2 type scope the 4424.
I have also a USB3 version 4444 scope but not tested, it should stream even faster.

Re: Longtime streaming mode via USB problem

I would use C++ for this and use multiple threads.
1 for reading the data from the picoscope.
1 for processing the read data (without locking the 1st thread)
1 for displaying the result or send the result to a python display app.

Re: Periodic bursts of noise with no BNC cables attached (2204A)

2 more things you can test come to mind.

1. short the inputs of the scope.
2. power down your phone. Or put it at least 10-20 meters away.
3. If your laptop has mobile connect turn that off.

Re: long time storage

set time base above 200 ms/dev and trigger at 99% and a trigger value witch will never occur.

Re: detect max interval between flanks

in the example .psdata from the first post

the times below so max low time or max high time.
