2205A settings for CAN trace

Post by kbrown@diperk.co.uk »

I believe it's possible to take a CAN trace with the 2205A Pico scope - what settings should i use?

Do you mean use the device for CAN Serial Decoding?

Technically yes as the serial decoding is performed post data collection in the software, however the low on board memory of the device will limit the amount of data you can collect. If the device switches to streaming mode to use the PC memory the sampling rate will be limited to 1MS/s maximum which is not fast enough to capture CAN data for decoding.
