5444B streamingInterval with latest driver

Post by MatthieuP » Thu Oct 18, 2018 11:14 am

Hello,
I use Matlab R2018b and I stream data from one Channel at 400ns streamingInterval.
I used picotech_ps5000a_generic V1.1.33 and it works fine.
I wanted to update this driver so, I downloaded V2.2.14.39 using Matlab Add-ons explorer.
I had to modify my script to make it work but I cannot set streamingInterval.
When I run PS5000A_ID_Streaming_Example.m, it works but if I uncomment line 236:
set(streamingGroupObj, 'streamingInterval', 5e-6);

I get the following error:
Error using icgroup/set (line 110)
There is no 'DriverData' property for device group objects.
Error in PS5000A_ID_Streaming_Example (line 236)
set(streamingGroupObj, 'streamingInterval', 5e-6);

I tried with tmtool and I get the same error.
Is it a bug in the driver or did I miss something?

Thanks,
Matthieu

Hi Matthieu,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

This is a bug in the Instrument Driver and will be fixed as soon as possible.

Hi Matthieu,

The Instrument Driver has been fixed - please use the Add-Ons explorer to download v2.1.1.4 of Hardware Support package for the PicoScope 5000 Series. You will most likely need to uninstall the old version (or rename it) as I believe the Updates feature is not yet active from within MATLAB.

Hope this helps,
