Record Length streaming mode

Post by werades » Mon Apr 08, 2019 8:37 am

Dear Pico Technology community,

I want to measure a signal with a high sample rate and continously stream this data from the oscilloscope to MATLAB. However, I noticed that in streaming mode the record length is limited. Is it possible to circumvent this and store multiple GS worth of data on my laptop? Without dead time ?

Yours sincirely,
Wouter.

I have done this in C++ and run it for over a month with a data rate of 1MS/sec.
So there is no limitation on the SDK side.
Don't know if the MATLAB has some limitations.

Which PicoScope do you have, and which programming language are you trying to use ?

My code was based on the c++ code found over here https://github.com/picotech

As you work with Matlab I would suggest connecting and collecting data directly. There are examples on our GitHub pages

this examples are limited (only 5 second data streaming), is there any possibility to continuously streaming data for a longer time?
