If you want I have written an osciloscope for mpl and pyqt4.
But the code is really dirty.
I have tested it with a usb2 Mesurment Computing Card.
It works quite good for low sampling rate (16 channel 200Hz) and small
And I am doing something else at the same time (recording to a file and
So for me mpl is good enough too.
What is the size of data you to refresh 5 frames per second ?
