Re: Triggering with a TTL signal

Hello Sam, I assume you are using the scope with our picoscope software? I would use the Aux input, as you cannot easily sync the signal generator to the scope capture. The Aux input is a 50 ohm input, so as along as the camera can driver this load, this would work. And set the trigger to mode to si...

Re: Stored oscilloscope data to specrta

Hello Hannes,

Yes you can, open a psdata file (scope view capture)
To add a spectrum ‘view’-
Right click anywhere in the waveform view buffer, choose ‘add view’ -> ‘Spectrum’
You may need to use the zoom tool, in the new spectrum view.

Re: Two channel simultaneous data acquisition

Have you checked each ‘call library function block’? Are you using 64 or 32 bit LabVIEW?

So; (512M memory/2 channels) / 500MS/s = 0.512s = ...
