Examples

Starting timepix and polling data:

import pymepix
from pymepix.processing import MessageType
import numpy as np

#Connect to SPIDR
timepix = pymepix.Pymepix(('192.168.1.10',50000))

#Set bias voltage
timepix.biasVoltage = 50

#Set pixel masks
timepix[0].pixelThreshold = np.zeros(shape=(256,256),dtype=np.uint8)
timepix[0].pixelMask = np.zeros(shape=(256,256),dtype=np.uint8)
timepix[0].uploadPixels()

#Start acquisition
timepix.start()

while True:
    try:
        #Poll
        data_type,data = timepix.poll()
    except pymepix.PollBufferEmpty:
        #If empty then just loop
        continue

    #Handle Raw
    if data_type is MessageType.RawData:

        print('UDP PACKET')

        packets,longtime = data

        print('Packet ',packets)
        print('Time', longtime)

    #Handle Pixels
    elif data_type is MessageType.PixelData:

        print('I GOT PIXELS!!!!')

        x,y,toa,tot = data

        print('x',x)
        print('y', y)
        print('toa', toa)
        print('tot',tot)

#Stop
timepix.stop()

Using callbacks to acquire:

import pymepix
from pymepix.processing import MessageType
import numpy as np
import time

#Connect to SPIDR
timepix = pymepix.Pymepix(('192.168.1.10',50000))

#Set bias voltage
timepix.biasVoltage = 50

#Set pixel masks
timepix[0].pixelThreshold = np.zeros(shape=(256,256),dtype=np.uint8)
timepix[0].pixelMask = np.zeros(shape=(256,256),dtype=np.uint8)
timepix[0].uploadPixels()

#Define callback
def my_callback(data_type,data):
    print('MY CALLBACK!!!!')
    #Handle Raw
    if data_type is MessageType.RawData:

        print('UDP PACKET')

        packets,longtime = data

        print('Packet ',packets)
        print('Time', longtime)

    #Handle Pixels
    elif data_type is MessageType.PixelData:

        print('I GOT PIXELS!!!!')

        x,y,toa,tot = data

        print('x',x)
        print('y', y)
        print('toa', toa)
        print('tot',tot)

#Set callback
timepix.dataCallback = my_callback

#Start acquisition
timepix.start()
#Wait 5 seconds
time.sleep(5.0)
#Stop
timepix.stop()
