picoscope file format

Post by labnet »

Where can I find the PS File Format.

I'm capturing large data files and txt/csv is too slow (ie minutes to save).
Picoscope looks to be binary which is much faster to read and process.

you are on your own in this.
it is a closed file format and they won't give the information.
If you have enough determination and your programming skills are good enough you can do it.
if you know the basics it is not a complex format.

The best option is to save as a matlab file - this is binary and the file format is published.
PicoScope file format changes over time as we add new features so is complex / not publicly documented.
