SPI Decode In Logic Analyzer Is Incomplete



I'm trying to decode six identical SPI devices connected in a daisy chain. The device uses a 16-bit word. Everything works fine except that the display refuses to show the last (sixth) word before CS is deactivated as shown in highlighted area in the attached picture.

Analysis by all other methods show the last word is correctly formed. Even the Waveforms Protocol spy shows there are six words:

Data: 002A | 087D, 002A | 087D, 002A | 087D, 002A | 087D, 002A | 087D, 002A | 087D,


Any advice appreciated. At the moment, I'm assuming this is a Waveforms bug but I'm happy to be proved wrong.

Thank you.

Hi @Kier

This is a very corner case bug :) 
The last word is not marked when: the SPI sampling is on falling edge, there are even number of words and the last word equals to the one before.

Thank you for the observation.
It is fixed for the next software release.
