Re: PicoScope PS5244D firmware DOWNGRADE

Some more information, the device has no firmware on it rather when it is opened by the application it writes firmware to the device so I believe that if you use the same software the firmware version shouldn't change

Re: ps500a Max Memory Segments

Hi Jacopo

The maximum memory segments for the 5000D devices are 250000 for 8 bit mode and 125000 for 12 bit+ mode when using the SDK. https://www.picotech.com/oscilloscope/5000/picoscope-5000-specifications

How are you currently trying to call the ps5000aGetMaxSegments function in MATLAB?

Re: using python wrappers with 2 PicoLog 1012 devices

Hi

When you connect to each device using the pl1000OpenUnit function, each device will be given a different number as the handle used for calling other functions.
