PicoScope 4824 can be greatly controlled after installing DLLs, PicoScope Support Toolbox and PicoScope 4000 Series A API MATLAB Generic Instrument Driver (this add-on)!

I wonder whether you have the code that is used to plot the 8-panel figure next to the title?

Great job.
When the drivers are correctly installed with the correct DLLs for communicating properly (that i asked to the support), and by installing the "Matlab support toolbox" directly from Matlab and available on MatlabCentral, then it works perfectly. The codes are very well written and easy to use. Thanks a lot. Tested on Win64 with Matlab 32 and Matlab 64. I'm currently testing on linux.
