Project Description
This is a Python 2.7+ library for the Pico Scope. It uses the provided DLL
for actual communications with the instrument. There have been a few examples
around, but this one tries to improve on them via:
* Subclass instrument-specific stuff, so can support more families
* Use exceptions to raise errors, and gives you nice english error messages (copied from PS Manual)
* Provide higher-level functions (e.g. just setup timebase, function deals with instrument-specific limitations)

System has support for:
* PS6000
* PS5000A Class (PicoScope 5242A/5243A/5244A/5442A/5443A/5444A/5242B/5244B/5442B/5443B/5444B)
* PS3000A Class (PicoScope 3204A/3204B/3205A/3205B/3206A/3206B/3207A/3207B/3204/3205/3206/3404A/3404B/3405A/3405A/3406A/3406B)
* PS2000 Class (PicoScope 2104/2105/2202/2203/2204/2205/2204A/2205A)

Note the 'A' series covers a different ground than the non-A series! Check the programming manuals posted at for details.

Getting DLLs

You will require the PicoScope DLLs for this package to work. The easiest method is to install the latest PicoScope software
or SDK from .

Installation Information from PyPI

You can install the program with a simple:
pip install picoscope

You will require the DLLs (described above).

Installation Information from GIT
If you will be getting updated code from git, use git clone to put the directory
somewhere. Then do the following to generate a link to your git directory:
