Re: Infinite While loop

What you are requiring to do is possible but we can't write the example for you. Can you post the Matlab code that you have creted, either here or directly to support@picotech.com , explaining what is not working and we can see where you are going wrong.

Re: 5442D MSO digital probes in PicoLog

Digital channels are not included in PicoLog 6 as it only samples at a maximum rate of 1kSample/sec and as most digital buses are faster than this the data would be nonsense.

Re: Attenuators in series?

Please do not go out and buy a x100 attenuator for the purpose without fully understanding what you are intending to measure, and the safe practices for doing it.

If you describe in detail what you are trying to do then we can give further advice.

Re: Attenuators in series?

What is the source of the voltage, and what scope are you using?

Re: Attenuators in series?

In theory yes, but in practice it will really depend upon what you are trying to achieve by doing this. What do you need to measure ?

Re: How to probe a voltage using ps2204A?

Putting the ground clip on a point that is not ground can cause a ground loop with potentially hazardous consequences.

Re: Channel Skew

The value in the brackets is in seconds, therefore with only 50usec/div on the screen image try B[0,000010] or a version that doesn't give a red cross to move the trace by 10usecs. Advance/Delay. To deskew a signal, select the channel and add the deskew time in seconds, in square brackets. For examp...

Re: Channel Skew

From memory it should be
B[0,010]
although I would also try
B[0.010]
in case there is an issue with the decimal separator.

Re: under-/over-voltage levels for 6404C, 6403C, 6402C

If you are referring to the external power supply then you should always use the one supplied with the unit. If you are wishing to power the device from an alternative source then please contact the Support Team directly at support@picotech.com

Re: Probe attenuation setting

Read the ADC counts from the device, convert to voltages according the range you are using then multiply the result by 10 Please note that if for example you have a 2V signal coming into the device set on the 5V range with a x1 probe, then switch to x10 and apply the above procedure the signal you g...

Re: Pilote of Picoscope 4262 by Borland C++

Rather than taking parts from the example does it run as it is?
