Raw data picoscope 4824

Post by strangequark » Mon Jun 03, 2019 8:13 pm

I gave up on python (it's buggy and doesn't work well) and am now trying to use Matlab to run my scope. I am trying to get the raw data measurements. I thought that GetValues would be the right protocol, but I am not sure. The descriptors are not clear to me.

Hi

Have you looked at the example scripts in the PicoScope 4000 A API MATLAB Generic Instrument Driver addon for MATLAB?

yes. there is nothing about printing or displaying the raw data in it from the example code. It just plots a waveform with no other information. can i please get a straight answer on this ? thanks.

Hi

What do you mean by raw data? The example codes do collect the voltage values of the data into the workspace.

The ps4000aGetValues can be used to retrieve the ADC counts values from the channels or the getBlockData function can be used which will retrived the ADC values from the scope, convert them to mV and return just the mV values for the data to the user.
