picoscope 3206MSO timebase

Post by rli3 » Mon Apr 22, 2019 6:51 am

Hi there,
I am using ps3000a to develop python code for 3206MSO. The timebase function in ps3000.py however, looks like it's not for 3206MSO but for more advanced models with shorter minimum sample interval.
Should I change this low level function by myself or something I didn't understand correctly here?
Thanks so much!

Rechard

p.s. I just realize this picopy is an unofficial open source project and it is not provided by PicoTech. The model it uses it 3207B so it explains the wrong formula for computing the timebase.
Should I move to official SDK and re-do my programming or this project is endorsed by pico now?
