PicoScopeR drivers now available for BeagleBone and Raspberry Pi

23 November 2014

Pico Technology has just released beta drivers for its oscilloscope and data logging devices to run on the ARM-based BeagleBone Black and Raspberry Pi development boards.

The new drivers give programmers access to a wide range of compact, economical USB oscilloscopes and data loggers. These include high-speed oscilloscopes with bandwidths up to 500MHz, high-resolution 12-bit and 16-bit oscilloscopes, and deep-memory oscilloscopes with buffer sizes up to 512MS.

Most PicoScope oscilloscopes also offer advanced digital triggering, fast block-mode and streaming-mode data capture, and a built-in signal generator or arbitrary waveform generator. The data logger range includes multichannel voltage loggers, 8-channel thermocouple loggers and the educational DrDAQ multifunction logger.

Separate driver packages and snippets of C code are available for Raspbian and Debian systems. Similar code could be developed in C-compatible programming languages such as C++, Java and JavaScript.

As beta products, these drivers are explained and supported on the Pico Technology forum.

In addition, beta drivers for Mac OS X and Linux, drivers for Microsoft Windows and a free SDK can all be downloaded free of charge.
