    Waveforms for Chrome?

    Hey Lee Leduc, WaveForms is a desktop application so it won't work in a browser. However, WaveForms Live runs in a browser and is accessible via WaveFormsLive.com. WaveForms Live does not work with the Analog Discovery 2 but is compatible with the OpenScope MZ. Kaitlyn

    Keyboard Shortcuts

    Hi @Old Printer, If you are interested in adding knobs, this project uses LabVIEW to add knobs to the Analog Discovery. It should provide you with, at least a place to start. https://reference.digilentinc.com/learn/instrumentation/tutorials/ad2-adding-knobs/start
  3. What is the maximum operating temperature of the Analog Discovery 2? Is there an ideal temperature range for accuracy, or is it just recommended to re-calibrate at different temperatures.

    Real Analog course with the OpenScope

    Hi uminded, The theory of course still applies but you will have to adjust labs because of the differences between the Openscope and Analog Discovery 2. Some of the labs will have to be adjusted for speed and voltage limitations, and some of the labs will be different because the Openscope tools are not the same as Analog Discovery 2. For example the RC circuit forced response lab has to have the resistor and capacitor values adjusted due to the speed and voltage limitations differing from the AD2. Another example is the Openscope with WaveForms Live has a Bode plot, so you can see the amplitude response, but not the phase response. Since the course is written for Analog Discovery 2 with WaveForms 2015 you'll also see differences in the software instructions. You can view the differences between the devices here. I hope that made sense, let me know if you have any other questions! Kaitlyn

    FIR filter on Waveforms

    Hello, I copied and pasted the code that is presented here into WaveForms and it wouldn't run. I also tried changing scope to scope1. Is there something missing? Kaitlyn

    Using the waveform generator on the AD2

    Thanks jwnall, That tutorial was written by one of our interns. You can find that tutorial and similar tutorials for all the tools on our wiki https://reference.digilentinc.com/reference/instrumentation/analog-discovery-2/start?redirect=1.
  9. Hi YangQi, To program the Basys 3 via JTAG you don't need a JTAG programming cable as the programming circuitry is located on board, the missing portion of the schematic. The methods for programming the Basys 3 are described in the Basys 3 programming guide. For more help getting started there are lots of tutorials and a getting started guide on the resource center.

    Questions about the AD2

    Hi there, We also have videos detailing installation of WaveForms 2015 located here. Kaitlyn
  11. Hi Aaron, Let us know if you find a solution on the chipKIT forums. Kaitlyn

    Voltmeter in WaveForms 2015

    I remember that the original WaveForms had a voltmeter tool. When I went to look for it in WaveForms 2015 I couldn't find it. It is mentioned in the reference manual as being in one of the main tabs labeled meters, but I don't see a meters tab. I also noticed that in the reference manual there are links to a meters section of the reference manual but that section doesn't exist. The Analog Discovery 2 page says that it includes a voltmeter so I was wondering where it is. I must be missing something. Kaitlyn
  14. Hello, I am trying to use the calibration wizard in the Device manager of WaveForms 2015 3.3.3. However when I get to the step to calibrate the oscilloscope where both P channels are connected to AWG 1 and both N channels are connected to ground, it gives a warning to check the connections. It says: "Check the connections!! The measured voltage on Oscilloscope Channel 1 is between: 0V and 4.970276V (this number is slightly different every time) But it should be around: 5V It might be that the Arbitrary Waveform Generator 1 Offset is not calibrated correctly" I tried: - A different AD2 - A different Multimeter - reinstalling WaveForms 2015 3.3.3 James also tried with WaveForms 2015 3.3.3 and was also unsuccessful. However, calibrating the same Analog Discovery 2 in WaveForms 2015 3.2.6 works successfully. Could there be a software issue in WaveForms 2015 3.3.3 I am running Windows 8.1. Kaitlyn

    Rename Failed in WaveForms 2015

    Hello, I'm trying to rename my Analog Discovery 2 in WaveForms 2015 3.3.3 but have been unsuccessful. When I type in a new name it says "rename failed." This seems to happen no matter what I name it, just letters, letters and numbers, and with special characters. I am working in Windows 8.1 Kaitlyn
