PicoScope software now offers mask limit testing

PicoScope 6.3.43 - which works with all our scopes from Pico Technology - has a new mask limit testing feature, designed to aid debugging and production testing. This feature allows you to classify waveforms as correct or faulty according to their shape. You define the acceptable shape by drawing a mask, entering its coordinates manually, importing a file or copying an existing waveform. You then apply the mask to an input channel, and PicoScope highlights any parts of the input waveform that cross the mask. The program counts the number of failed waveforms, so that you can run unattended tests.

The new release of PicoScope also includes serial decoding improvements; support for the newPicoScope 6000 Series; and various bug fixes.

You can also now control a PicoScope oscilloscope in MATLAB using the driver software that we supply. A MATLAB user has published a guide to doing this using the PicoScope 2205, along with an example program. You can adapt this method for use with any PicoScope oscilloscope.
