RapidBlockMode() template

Post by jayjay »

Hey all

I've noticed that in the SDKs (particularly for excel), there are templates for the 'normal' BlockMode() code... However nothing for RapidBlockMode().

As I understand things, I need to use RapidBlockMode() if I want to import data from two (or more) channels such that i can compare the two data-sets at corresponding times. Something like this:

Time Data1 Data2
0.1 0 0.5
0.2 0.5 0.75
0.3 0.7 0.81
0.4 0.8 1
etc etc etc

So, is there someone here that can point me to where I can find some kind of template or example of RapidBlockMode() from which I can then base my own code, or alternatively if someone can reply with the code in this thread.

Thanks all... Much appreciated

Please see Rapid trigger mode under https://www.picotech.com/library/a-to-z which explains what rapid block mode does.
When using the SDK you don't need to use a triggering. Hence the name 'Rapid trigger mode' in PicoScope software.

If you still do plan to use the rapid block mode, could tell us what model picoscope you have?
You should find steps to use rapid block mode in the scope programmers guide-

From our website at: http://www.picotech.com/software.html
Step 1, select your 'Series' in the left column.
Step 2, select 'Model' in the next column.
Step 3, select 'Manuals and brochures' in the next column.
Look under the programmers guide section
