Is a Scopy or Alice installed OS-image available for the Raspberry Pi4? Or, has anyone compiled Scopy or Alice for the Raspberry Pi 4?
If not, can anyone compile Scopy or Alice for the Raspberry Pi 4 4GB, please? Or outline how it can be done...
One of the developers for Scopy will have to speak to if / when a compiled version for ARM based systems will be available.
As to ALICE. I doubt there will ever be an installer for ARM (on any Linux) based systems because it is so easy to just run from the Python source code. The only prerequisite is that the libsmu library be compiled (or installed). The libsmu developers for libsmu might at some point make a libsmu install package for ARM systems but in the mean time the steps to build libsmu from source code on Linux from the GitHub page works.
I've done it on my various Raspberry Pi boards (not a latest version 4) and it works but these older boards are not fast enough to run ALICE and the ALM1000 fast enough to work in the continuous streaming mode. Discontinuous mode does work. I don't know if the version 4 boards will be any faster.
If you get it to work on your Pi 4 and both modes work let us know.
dmercer thanks for the response...
The ALICE app was built for the ADALM1000. Are you aware if the ALICE app works with ADALM2000 as well, or if there is a version for the ADALM2000?
The ALM1000 and ALM2000 use two very different low level interface libraries (libsmu for m1k and libm2k for m2k). Besides the very different capabilities in the hardware, i.e sample rate, number of channels etc. this use of different libraries requires two separate source code files.
The libm2k interface function library has not yet had an official (read frozen) release as of today. There is a Windows installer for libm2k (with Python 3 bindings) on AppVeyor but for other OS the library will need to be compiled from source I think. I think I remember someone saying they compiled libm2k on Raspberry Pi but that was months ago at the very beginning of work on libm2k.
The further development of ALICE 2 ( for m2k ) for public consumption has been sort of on hold until that official release happens. A not fully tested pre-release version of ALICE 2 is available on GitHub. That is probably not even the latest development version. Use at your own risk, it will probably crash or not work in some cases.
