Technical Tip — Loading Reference Waveforms in PicoScope

A common requirement with oscilloscopes is to compare 'live' waveforms with stored 'reference' waveforms.

This can easily be done in PicoScope as follows:

  1. Open the reference waveform
  2. From the View menu select 'Freeze/thaw one'
  3. Press the new scope icon to open a second oscilloscope window
  4. Display the 'live' waveform in the second oscilloscope window

If the two scope windows have exactly the same settings (timebase, trigger, voltage etc) then the waveforms can be overlaid by choosing 'New Composite' from the View menu. More details on this can be found in the PicoScope help file manual under 'Composite View'.
