I'm looking for a program that can open and edit .trc and .scp files! These files were saved from the oscilloscope to a disk and now i want to open and edit them with a computer!

I hope someone can help me. :wink:

I cannot find any file format information for .trc and scp files.
If you still have the scope they were generated on, you should be able
to load them into the scope and save to a format you can manipulate,
e.g. csv.

Hello all!
I find this post and think that my problem can be solved here.

I'm looking too a program that can viev and/or edit .scp data files for oscilloscope. Perhaps it can be class for some program language. These .scp files are binary data files. I saved these files on USB-drive and now a have its on my remote computer.
And now I want to do remote programming oscilloscope by using converting program (for example by AUTOMATIC converting into SCPI-scripts). But I donn't know structure of .scp files:( What means every bit? What converting algorithm?

Perhaps somebody can help me?

Thank you all!
Best regards,
Eugen

P.S.: Scope is DSO6034A.

turns out the those files are ONLY openable by the scope. .scp is a setup file, I think. .trc is indeed a trace, but it turns out that it is just a screenshot. load both back into the scope, and if all u need is some ez to get parametric info, you might be able to estimate a risetime or Vp-p, for example, but if you need x-y pairs:


you gotta make sure that whatever you are saving is usable later, before you save 2 weeks of "critical data," in some format that is totally useless. You are pretty much screwed and need to retake your data. in a format that is usable, like, bin, csv, or ascii-xy format.

From which scope did you save the rcd file?
