USB Oscilloscope Drivers for BeagleBone Black and Raspberry Pi

Pico-RPi-Driver05 December 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 500 MHz, high-resolution 12-bit and 16-bit oscilloscopes, and deep-memory oscilloscopes with buffer sizes up to 512 MS.

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 support forum of Pico Technology.

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.
