Pico has beta drivers for Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone Black

Pico Technology has released beta drivers for its oscilloscope and data logging devices, which run on both the BeagleBone Black and Raspberry Pi development boards.

The drivers give programmers access to a range of USB oscilloscopes and data loggers, including high speed oscilloscopes with bandwidths up to 500MHz, 12 and 16bit oscilloscopes, and deep memory oscilloscopes with buffer sizes up to 512MS.

Most PicoScope oscilloscopes also offer advanced digital triggering, fast block mode and streaming mode data capture, as well as a built in signal generator or arbitrary waveform generator.

The data logger range includes multichannel voltage loggers, 8channel thermocouple loggers and the educational DrDAQ multifunction logger.

Separate driver packages and snippets of C code are available for Raspbian and Debian systems.
