Title: Rigol DS1000z series on Sigrok
Post by: mauroh on December 01, 2014, 12:48:12 am
Does anyone already tried to add the MSO/DS1000z series on Sigrok?

I have a DS1104z and I would like to try to implement int but don't know where to start.
If someone is already trying we can work together.

I have looked at the same thing.
I found this entry: https://www.mail-archive.com/sigrok-devel@lists.sourceforge.net/msg00727.html (https://www.mail-archive.com/sigrok-devel@lists.sourceforge.net/msg00727.html) which would suggest there is some support for DS1000Z that is merged to master, so it should be in nightlies, no?

The current Rigol driver in sigrok supports the VS5000, DS1000, DS2000 and (Agilent-branded) DSO1000 series. It has various workarounds for quirks in some models and early firmware versions, but in general the later models seem to be more straightforward to support. Have a look at the code:

http://sigrok.org/gitweb/?p=libsigrok.git;a=tree;f=src/hardware/rigol-ds;hb=HEAD (http://sigrok.org/gitweb/?p=libsigrok.git;a=tree;f=src/hardware/rigol-ds;hb=HEAD)

With a little bit of luck, adding the models in the DS1000Z series to the list with similar options to the DS2000 series should get most of it working. I expect thorough testing of all the options to be the biggest part of the job.

Can one of you guys create a page on the wiki about the series, preferrably with some pictures? Something like this:

http://sigrok.org/wiki/Rigol_DS2000_series (http://sigrok.org/wiki/Rigol_DS2000_series)

PM me here for a wiki account, or join us on IRC at freenode #sigrok and ask there.

There have been some developments in the past few weeks. There's a guy on the sigork mailing list creating a driver for it. I suggest you join the IRC chat. Download Hexchat or other IRC chat clients, conenct to the freenode server and join the #sigork channel  :-+
The leader of the project is Uwe Hermann.

Thanks, Biot!
With your help, I have a sigrok wiki account and I created the main page for DS1000Z series. I will add more details soon. :-+

Thanks, Ivan747!
I will check on #sigrok how I can help.  :-+

Hope to use sigrok (and contribute to it too)!  :)

I believe the mailing list thread in question is [sigrok-devel] Rigol DS/MSO1000Z (http://sourceforge.net/p/sigrok/mailman/message/33267391/).

DS1000Z/MSO1000Z support has now been added.

Note a couple of limitations for the digital channels on the MSO version, discussed in the commit message:

I know this is an old thread, but has anybody tried sigrok for protocol decoding with a RIGOL scope?

What's your opinion of this combination?
