  1. Hi, I am using your driver Analog Discovery 2 in Labview 2017. Trying to run a sampe I can't receive the results I expect. the setup is : sample rate of 7.692M wiht 8192 samples - trying to use hight rate or no. of smaple returns an error. Here is attach a picture of the case. Could you send me some information how to fix and have the wave as the example in the picture ? AD2 Analog Example(Multiple).vi
  2. I recently tried to calibrate my AD2 and ran into some issues when I reached W2 gains. I read on my personal DMM 5 volts when it should have been 1 or 0. I then applied the wave to my oscilloscope and even the oscilloscope of the AD2. It was a static 5 volts no matter what wave I changed it to be. I tried using the fly wires to see if my breakout board was faulty, but it seems that my AD2’s wavegen 2 does not work. I was wondering if there was something that I could do to fix this or contact digilent themselves. Thank you in advanced!
  3. Hi, I am trying to characterize an ADC by applying a ramp dc value as an input and receiving the digital values in SPI (three-wire option). The Select and Clock are applied (similar to example). I have implemented the test setup in the Waveforms (Analog Discovery) and it is functional. I can see the Digital Value of the ADC both in Logic Analyser and Protocol (SPI - Spy (Three-wire)) (figs attached). I have automated the full procedure using python except the SPI part. I am interested in the first 16 bits after the Select high. I have gone though
  4. Hi Allita My Analog Discovery AD2 crashes waveforms when I plug in a external +5V psu. My PSU has cable has the deminsions 5V DC voltage supply with at least 3A max current, Outer diameter 5.5 mm and inner pin 2.1mm diameter positive inner pin = 5v Outer case =0 V DC plug connected up as shown the in above photo. This solutions complies to the hand book rules here Normally my Analog Discovery AD2 when just powered by the USB cable works fine without any is
  5. Hi! I need to know the connector type and size to modify a 5v 2.5A power supply to connect it to an Analog Discovery 2. Thank you. Albert Valiente
  6. Hi, I would like to measure control loop gain of DC-DC converter using AD2 network analyzer. Is it possible to add a digital filter to input channels of AD2 and measure gain and phase shift after digital filtering?
  7. Greetings, I'm working on a project utilizing the Pattern Generator function of Analog Discovery 2. I chose the Pattern Generator function based from the WaveForms GUI. In that interface, it can be used to transmit data in parallel. I created a VB Script consisting of Pattern Generator APIs, it was working fine. The problem that I encountered is its possible limitation: it can only transmit up to 102 characters. Each character consists of 10 bits (1 Start bit, 8 Data bits, and 1 Stop bit). Here are example of that scenarios: 1). Transmitted messages using DIOs #0 and #1
  8. Waveforms can not seem to find my AD2, it does not show up in the waveforms device manager. I can see it in my windows device manager, however, it is identifyed as "USB Serial Converter". Any help would be appreciated.
  9. I need to capture the signal which is must be sampled in 25Mhz for avoiding aliasing. But while I use record mode to capture it, WaveForms keep showing message "reduce sample rate". For 25Mhz sample rate, and 14 bit resolution, data rate is 350Mbps AD2 is using USB2.0 which should transmitter data up to 480Mbit/s. AD2 should continues record 25Mhz data, the only limitation is my PC RAM size. Is my understanding correct ?
  10. Hi, I'm trying to use the UART of my Analog Discovery 2 in python. I've had a look at the example and just ran it. At first, I thought it worked. But then I realized it was okay only for the first frame. After increasing the sleeping before the print (see the pics just under), the values are more often correct, but there's still a lot of unexpected results. (see the pics just under ). The thing is, when I use Waveforms, it works(see the pic just under). Also I thought of a problem with the SDK, even if I don't really think so. Could someone help me?
  11. Greetings, Forgive me, but I'm not that knowledgeable in python and I'm having trouble understanding the "create_string_buffer" argument in the sample code. How do you declare this "create_string_buffer" statement into its VB6 equivalent? Sincerely yours, Lesiastas
  12. Greetings! I'm working on a project involving the use of the Analog Discovery 2's Logic Analyzer feature and I've been tasked to recreate its function through the use of a VB6 Wrapper. I'm having a hard time finding the correct APIs to use. The Python sample codes in the WaveForms SDK folder isn't working when I tried to use it in receiving ASCII bits from a UART controller. For people like me that aren't good in coding, it would be great if it would at least contain more examples showing the different uses of the settings present in the Logic Analyzer GUI. So I just set some additional APIs t
  13. Hi I used Power Supplies on USB mode. Please tell me the rise time from 0 to 5V when using DC power supply. As far as I have measured, it is very slow at about 20 m sec. Is this correct?
  14. Hello, I'm using the AD2 and would like to use Python to play an imported signal of arbitrary length (like in the function AnalogOut_Play) while at the same time acquiring data (like in the function AnalogIn_Record). Is there a straightforward way of combining these two functions?
  15. Greetings! I'm working on a Project involving the use of the Analog Discovery 2's Pattern Generator function. I was tasked to create a VB6 Wrapper in MS Visual Studio 2013 that will perform the functions of the Pattern Generator by calling certain APIs from its dwf VB.NET file. I have two concerns on how to do this. First, as I looked at the WaveFormsSDK sample codes and the WaveForms™ SDK Reference Manual, there is no API available for setting the clock frequency of the Pattern Generator, unlike in its WaveForms GUI. The only API available is the FDwfDigitalOutInternalClockInfo, w
  16. Dear Sir/Madam, I am trying to create a single pulse using the wavegen in labview but couldn't find the subVIs in the DigilentWF library. I was able to use the Waveform software to create a single pulse. Attached are the pictures. Is there anyone that can help to shed some lights on how to achieve that? Much appreciated.
  17. I am using analog discovery 2. I am trying to acquire data (for 10ms) of first channel from trigger of second channel signal. this is a part of my code hzAcq = c_double(1075000) # 1,075MHz nSamples =8192 dwf.FDwfAnalogInChannelEnableSet(hdwf, c_int(0), c_bool(True)) #first signal (channel 1) dwf.FDwfAnalogInChannelRangeSet(hdwf, c_int(0), c_double(1)) dwf.FDwfAnalogInChannelEnableSet(hdwf, c_int(1), c_bool(True))#second signal (channel 2) dwf.FDwfAnalogInChannelRangeSet(hdwf, c_int(1), c_double(5)) dwf.FDwfAnalogInAcquisitionModeSet(hdwf, c_int(3)) # record dwf.FDwfAnalogInFrequ
  18. When changing the start and stop frequencies of the spectrum analyzer the resolution does not seem to change. I'm using the software in the demo mode. Is this how the actual software works. One would hope that the resolution frequency would decrease (become a smaller frequency) as the frequency span is decreased. Thanks, for any responses.
  19. Hello, 1. I'm just wondering if I can expect to get time sequence which has 10ns interval (ADC fs=100MHz) when I measure the Analog input from my circuit. (AD, AD2) 2. And because of 16k samples buffer, I only can measure(capture or save data) during 0.16msec (1/100MHz*16k). Is there any way to increase the number of samples to save? 3. Can I change the sampling frequency also? Best regards, Sung
  20. Dear, Hello, I've considered using Analog Discovery for 100MHz ( >20MHz) ADC. I have some questions about it. I found some discussion that Matlab does not provide connection to Analog Discovery 2. Have you ever used Matlab Data Acquisition Toolbox to connect Analog Discovery 2? I wonder if the data acquisition toolbox only support Analog Discovery (old version). I have one more question. I'd like to measure 4 channels simultaneously. Can I use two Analog Discovery modules simultaneously? and is it able to run two S/W to handle two Analog D
