PicoScope Support from Instrument Control Toolbox

Analyze and visualize the data acquired from your PicoScope 2000, 3000 and 5000 Series oscilloscopes and automate your testing tasks from MATLAB.

MATLAB® supports PicoScope hardware through the Instrument Control Toolbox™ Support Package for PicoScope hardware provided by Pico Technology. PicoScope offers a range of compact USB-powered oscilloscopes including models with high bandwidth and high sampling rate. Many devices also include a built-in arbitrary waveform generator (AWG).

The Instrument Control Toolbox Support Package for PicoScope hardware allows you to perform the following tasks in MATLAB:

  • Read data from the oscilloscope channels
  • Write data to the built-in AWG
  • Set the sampling rate of the device
  • Configure advanced triggering options (3000 Series only)

Devices supported by this support package include:
