3206MSO Digital measurements, cursors

Postby SaturdayScience » Sat Feb 22, 2014 6:35 pm

Hi,

I'm enjoying the mixed scope and am testing code on PIC16F1825 using the MSO to pick up output pins. All is fine, I've got the trigger working well. OK it's utterly reliable but only asked to see one digital pin go high so not a complex task.

I'm not using the Scope (A or B). The "Measurements" menu is greyed out. I can move the cursors to get timing values - except there is no "measurement box". If I print preview then the measurement values appear. It is very disappointing that there are only two markers, with digital signals it would be reasonable to expect the user to want one or two per signal line. I'm not transmitting SPI or I2C but want to take timing measurements as to how long a signal is high and the time between different digital lines.

In addition I have renamed the digital pins but as you can see from the screen capture the graph chops off the signal name. I can't find a way to move the left hand end of the grid to show the names. I've also captures the trigger screen - and you can see the labels remain as D0 to D7 - the renaming is not carried through to the screen.

Thanks,

Saturday Science


With these matters I tried searching the manual and this forum but my search technique may need improvement :)
