Siglent SDS 1104X-E what to do with waveform files?
« on: February 04, 2019, 01:42:18 am »
Hi guys,

I own a SDS 1104X-E and I want to look at a waveform I captured on my computer. I have the binary file saved here, now what do I do with it?

The EasyScope software won't work because I can't install NI-VISA...



No log files, nothing...

so I'm looking for a solution to browse around my waveform capture like this.

Sure I could load it into an audio editor but I don't expect to have to rely on that kind of shoddy kludge after buying a 500€+ product....

Regards,
Eric

Have you tried just installing the runtime?

Which OS version are you using?

Check out this link - seems to be a known issue:

I'm using Windows 10 Build 17763 (October Update) on a Threadripper 2950X.

EDIT: 64 Bit of course.

Simplest is to use the Webserver feature while connected to a PC and Save a .bin file.
Then use the scopes embedded file converter utility that downloads to your PC from the scope Webserver in order to convert the .bin file to a .csv file
Then you can drop all or part of the waveform .csv file info into your favorite program like say Excel for graphs, charts etc.

A tip; set memory depth and timebase so to not get massive file sizes.

A demo of this ^ I did for a customer, we used a Single trigger setting so just get one screen's worth of data.

Note.
All done with the latest FW V6.1.26 and the new scope OS with the improved Webserver on a Win7 laptop.

Got the bug figured out. Windows 10's October Update version seems to have a problem with regex parsing of some sorts.

I figured this out because all my recent problems persisted after re-formatting and installing the latest build.

  • NI-VISA couldn't install
  • FTDI's FT_Prog crashed as soon as you scanned the bus
  • Xilinx ISE 14.7 wouldn't install because of invalid installation paths:
  • Xilinx ISE wouldn't build my FPGA project because of a regex parsing error ("false" apparently isn't "false" anymore?)


    Mind you the same project built just fine on my non-updated laptop.

I've reverted to the April build and now my system runs smoothly, NIVISA is installed and my scope works :)

Is it possible to upload a waveform to the SDS1202X?  I know downloading is possible, using either EasyScopeX or by opening an IP socket, but what about the reverse?  (I want to upload a waveform and then perform an FFT on the data.) --agc
