  1. I'm trying to take accurate readings using the "Logger" module in Waveforms 2015. When I power up a simple DC circuit with +5V, and use a DMM I get readings of ~4.44 volts. However when I run the data logger module, all of the readings are <100 mV. Shouldn't the logger be reading ~4.44 volts, or is there some configuration I am missing Thanks in advance!
  2. Ah, ok understood. My lab was requesting that feature due to it being listed as possible on the manual, but I see that you have corrected that. Thank you!!
  3. Hello, I'm a newbie using the Analog Discovery (Legacy), and attempting to run through a few experiments. When using the Power Source or "Supplies" tool in Waveforms 2015, all the directions and manuals show a dropdown menu where you can adjust the voltage (0-5V). The manual from Digilent's own website SPECIFICALLY regarding the Analog Discovery Legacy shows this as an option as well. I can't find any such option however in my program, it just isn't there. I should mention that I am powering the AD itself via USB from my laptop, but I don't think that is the issue as according to the
  4. I was unable to fix this. Bumping because I was told that I should be able, as per the manual on Digilent's own website, to set the voltage between 0 and 5 (considering my usb is powering a successful ~5v PS set). If anyone else can help me out that would be super...
  5. Thanks for the reply, but according to the Manual from this very website specifically regarding Power Source within Waveforms via the Analog Discovery Legacy, https://reference.digilentinc.com/learn/instrumentation/tutorials/ad1-power-supplies/start, it claims that you CAN adjust the voltage level. Are you suggesting that their manual on the website is incorrect?? I would find that surprising because my lab is asking for that very feature to be implemented as if it should be working perfectly fine.
