  1. I am trying to download Waveforms 2.9.4. I am logged in to When I right click on the blue Windows icon and click Save As, I get a message "... couldn't be downloaded". I am using Windows 7 and IE11. Yes, I am trying to download the legacy version, I do prefer it. Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong?
  2. Hi there, after buying the Analog Discovery 2, I installed Waveforms without any problems, but when starting Waveform 2015 v3.3.5 it crashes immediately on Windows 7 Enterprise 64 Bits. I also tried v3.3.3 getting the same result. Getting two problem reports immediately one after the other: Problemsignatur: Problemereignisname: APPCRASH Anwendungsname: WaveForms.exe Anwendungsversion: Anwendungszeitstempel: 57332ffc Fehlermodulname: ntdll.dll Fehlermodulversion: 6.1.7601.23455 Fehlermodulzeitstempel: 573a54b7 Ausnahmecode: c0000005 Ausnahmeoffset: 000000000004ba71 Betriebsystemversion: 6.1.7601.

  3. We got the following question: Hi,I'm using your software WaveForms 2015 coupled with your Electronics explorer board to generate 2 synchronised wave form. Now I need to automate my test in which I have a sine1 as reference and a sine2 used as signal. In my automated test I want to change the phase of my sine2 from 0 to 360 and make measurements for each phase shift. My goal would be to have an input and each time my input has a raising edge my sine2 will be shifted by 1 degree. Is it possible to script with this tool under Linux or Windows? Or are there a way to do this with the electronics explorer board?Thank you for your help.
  4. I just purchased an Analog Discovery and have been enjoying it so far. The OSX Waveforms2105 app works flawlessly. I'm now trying to run the python example code in the SDK in order to write my own software. If I run ``, I get the following: DWF Version: 3.3.5 Opening first device failed to open device Any ideas? Can I debug this in any way? Thanks.
  5. Hello there, I am using Analog Discovery 2 and WaveForms software. I was wondering either there is any way to export the scope view to pdf or eps format? Or any other vector graphics format. That would be great for papers. If there is no such feature, maybe developers would consider this option? I would appreciate all help.
  6. When I open Waveforms 2015 and connect the AD1 or AD2, I can click on the status button on the bottom of the main window and it will pop up a system monitor that allows a quick view of the USB voltage and the total current draw from the device. If I attach a separate AUX 5V power supply to the AD2 (awesome feature!), it will display AUX voltage and AUX current. I tested it with a high W resistor and easily pulled 1100mA with no issues and was able to observe that value through the system monitor (see image "AD2"). My question is why doesn't this feature work for the Explorer Board (see image "EE")? At first I thought it might be related to the power running exclusively through the USB with the AD1/AD2, which is why I tested it with the AUX power supply on the AD2. Since that worked, my only thought is that the hardware and/or software on the Explorer Board doesn't allow that type of data to be returned to the system monitor. If it is software, is it possible to add this feature? All it tells me right now is that my board is on/off, which I can see from the bright green "ready" LED on the board itself, so that doesn't help me much. I realize there are multiple ways that I could either use external tools, or even utilize the tools on the EE board to figure this out, but it would be nice to just be able to see total system voltage/current at a quick glance. Thank you.
  7. 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
  8. Digilent Waveforms depends on xdg-utils which depends on x11 and many things. Can I install waveforms without all of this and how? Is anyone using this on an embedded device like the Beaglebone Black or Rasberry Pi?
  9. I'm using the original analog discovery module and have captured scope plots that I want to play out using the waveform generator. I could do this with the older software, v2.62 but after upgrading to waveforms 2015 (v3.26) I cannot seem to do the same thing. or maybe I just haven't found the right way to go about it in waveforms 2015. I have a csv file that I have previously converted from the scope capture. 1. How can I play out the waveform using the csv file (file attached)? 2. How can I read old scope captures in waveforms 2015 (file attached)? thanks, tim field data test 1.csv 4_6_2016 field data with comparator input and board input ch2 take 5 with glitch.dwfscopedata
  10. I have an Analog Discovery 1. I have been using it successfully under Windows for some time. I would now like to use it under Linux - Ubuntu 14.04 LTs (64-bit) . I have installed digilent.waveforms_3.2.6_amd64.deb When I start the program I get three error messages 1) WaveForms > dlopen Reinstall Digilent Adept Runtime 2) WaveForms > No device detected 3) Device Manager > Adept NOK No device appears in the list of available devices in the Device Manager. Running dmesg I can see that the device is recognized by the operating system. When connecting I get - "FTDI USB Serial Device converter now attached to ttyUSB0" When disconnecting I get - "FTDI USB Serial Device converter now disconnected from ttyUSB0" Does anybody know how to solve this issue? Regards, Ben
  11. Hi, per my professor's requirement's, I bought The Analog Discovery (link here) which I believe interfaces with the original Waveforms software linked here: . I have a Mac running OS X and am worried these will not work with my system. Any help or guidance is greatly appreciated. Sean
  12. Hello, you made great products with Analog Discovery and Electronics Explorer, especially since Waveforms 3 offers even more functionality! For Debugging especially the Logging-function is useful. In my case I'm sending SPI signals to a FPGA which controls a power electronics circuit. Some times there are glitches or faulty output values, so that I wanted to check the sent SPI signals. Therefore I want to log them and make a statistical analysis, since the errors are not periodical. I output a 50Hz sinus signal and send about 10 SPI commands per period. As sending the signals is much faster than the output signal, I can only see one of the commands at a time. To decode it I have to choose a resolution of 20µs or less in the logic analyzer. Logging this signal gives me a huge csv with very little information. I've read the scripting page in your wiki but I didn't find an answer to my question: Is it possible to write a script, which only saves new datawords in a csv? Something like take 10000 samples and only write the SPI word 'on signal change' to the csv? If not, would it be possible to only write the SPI word of a certain time frame (e.g. only write value from SPI at sample 1200 to the csv and do this for 10000 triggered events)? Best regards, Arthur
  13. A user asked this in a different section of the forum but since I'm not seeing a way to just move specific comments, I'm re-posting the question here.
  14. This question was asked on our youtube page: David Chiaverini: Is there a MAC version [of the Waveforms software]?
  15. Hey everyone I have the Analog Discovery Module and I can generate the timing signals easily using the GUI which I really like. However I need more signals and a standalone system, as well as an SPI communication capability. Would any of the boards available on your site be compatible with the Waveforms software and have more IO as well as SPI? Thanks
  16. Here you can find instructions on how to set up Linux and WaveForms 3 for Zybo:
  17. A custom asked the following: " is it possible to write a script to generate SPI data via the pattern generator? "
  18. Hi, Is it possible to write a MDIO (Clause 45 and 22) protocol decoder plugin for the Waveforms software (preferably under Linux but Windows would also be OK). I want to capture the data using Analog Discovery and decode it. Thanks, Methlal
  19. Juergen Sauermann published a classic oscilloscope like application for Linux, based on Qt and WaveForms SDK. This project can be found on the following location:
  20. I have an external event that operates at a frequency of 10-20 kHz that can be accessed through a TTL signal. This TTL signal has negative peaks that last about 2 us which could potentially be used as trigger events. I also have a custom waveform that I'd can load into the waveforms software via the custom tab and what I'd like to do is use the external TTL signals as a mechanism to march through each row of the custom waveform. When the number of external clock pulses exceeds the custom waveform length I'd like the row to simply reset (e.g. modulo operator). Now to top it off I'd like this whole process to be triggered by yet a second master pulse that starts the whole crazy sequence. Is this doable? If so might someone point me to the appropriate Waveforms SDK functions? Better yet, if some python pseudo code could be produced and you visit Pullman I will buy beers. The problem I have now with simply setting the frequency and using a master signal trigger is that there is some jitter that creates a scenario where the custom waveform "marches" out of sync with the master pulse. Cheers, Brian
  21. Hello Probably i want order a Analog Discovery. Before that i have some requirements/questions about the possibilities of the equipment/ software. 1) Can i record my Inputs/ Outputs related/synced to each other? This for later calculations in GNU Octave… (fs_max = 200 kHz) 2) Is it possible to record inputs and outputs based on a trigger in one of the recorded signals. Let say i record 2 inputs and the trigger is one of the inputs?. Is this trigger adjustable? So that in a noisy environment the trigger not start. 3) I Work mostly with OSX or Ubuntu and I don't have experience with programming outside GNU Octave/ Matlab. What are the possibilities of WaveForm SDK and GUI? Is that something what is easy to learn are there some tutorials or other stuff? 4) Is it posible to work with (long) delays? sends signal on OUT1 and about 1 sec later i get a (complex and longer) response on IN1 how to deal with this. including recording of question 1 Thanks Jan-Bert
  22. I bought my Analog Discovery about a year ago, and installed Waveforms to drive it. I assume the software has been updated since then. How can i determine the version of my software, and how can i then update it? Thanks in advance
  23. What I feel would be a really neat addition to Waveforms would be an serial terminal, allowing you to use a pair of the digital signals as TX and RX. It wouldn't have to be anything too feature-rich - just something like the Arduino GUI's serial monitor would be perfect. I would find it quite useful for playing around with DIP microcontrollers, avoiding the hassle of finding my FTDI breakout board, a USB cable and freeing up a USB port. Also, some way to send I2C commands would be very cool, but I don't know what it would look like.... maybe somewhere where you can type in hex, and use a question mark to indicate a read. > 47 34 00 00 > 46 34 ? ? 00 00 Mike PS. The Waveforms 3 beta is running really well on my Cubieboard - no need for a PC on my bench!
  24. Is it possible to use the Analog Discovery to analyze a CAN bus? CAN_L = 0v, CAN_H = 5v, for a 0. CAN_L = 2.5, CAN_H = 2.5 for 1. Typically operates at 1mbaud
  25. Here is a good question from customer. Can you anyone help on this? My question then is. Since you ship the SDK for Linux. Is there any possibility/roadmap for a Linux port of the WaveForms application, making the device useful also on Linux workstations?
