Hi Vanessa,
Please try the following:
Using the MATLAB Add-Ons Explorer, install the following:
  1. PicoScope 3000 Series A API MATLAB Generic Instrument Driver
  2. PicoScope Support Toolbox
Next, install the PicoSDK 64-bit which can be obtained from This will provide you with the necessary libaries to communicate with the device.
The PicoScope 3405A is listed under Discontinued products.
Once this is complete, navigate to the folder where the PicoScope 3000 Series A API MATLAB Generic Instrument Driver was installed and try running the PS3000A_ID_Block_Example.m script.
If you require any further assistance, please contact the Pico Technology support team.
Hope this helps.
