The latest beta release of PicoScope is now available. PicoScope 6 Automotive R6.9.9 installs alongside your standard PicoScope installation so as not to disturb your stable software. What's new in this beta? 

If there was ever a feature of PicoScope Automotive 6 that was worth shouting about, it has now arrived. The Automotive Waveform Library has now been released. I cannot remember how many times it would have been useful to have a comparison waveform for a circuit under test. Often this would involve sifting through your own library, or ringing round colleagues in the hope you might get lucky.

Well, thanks to the team at Pico the new Beta Version of PicoScope 6 Automotive 6.9 contains a feature called Waveform Library Browser found under the File menu. This new feature will enable you to search a global database of waveforms that have been uploaded by PicoScope users from around the world.

To access the Waveform Library you must have an automotive scope connected and have a valid user name and password for the Pico Automotive Forum.

Once logged into the Waveform Library Browser you will find numerous Search Options allowing you to locate a relevant waveform for a specific manufacturer or model.

You can also search for a waveform using just the engine code, allowing you to locate a waveform that may not have been saved under your search entry, but is applicable to other models or manufacturers, given the engine may be installed on numerous other vehicles or brands. With your search criteria filled in, click on the Search button.

From here you have the ability to preview the waveform by clicking the image, Open it in PicoScope, or Load it as a reference waveform to your existing capture. You will notice the green tick visible in the above screen capture: this indicates the waveform has been checked, and verified by a member of the Pico Automotive team.

The more good waveforms in the database the more useful it will be. If like many users you have built up a collection of waveforms on your own PC, now is the chance to give something back to the community and help fellow techs by uploading them to the database. Adding an existing waveform from your PC to the online waveform database is as simple as loading the waveform into PicoScope, checking details such as vehicle Make and Model are present, and selecting Save and Share.


For more detail and guidance of the Waveform Library, please see Steve Smith's Waveform Library Browser thread on our Automotive forum for more information.
