Thanks. Decided to order the SDG1062X ... and SDM3055  ::) My Black Friday was relatively cheap until almost midnight when placed the order on Tester/Pass.

I have quite a bit of projects coming and have some plans, and only have two PSUs and (good) scope at the moment. 10% discount is not massive but when the starting price was already ok and those were on my shopping list anyway. I know I could have hacked the SDG1032X but I'm not too much into playing with such stuff and the price difference wasn't huge.

More new firmware for SDG1000X models.

Version 1.01.01.33R1
13.3 MB
https://www.siglentamerica.com/download/8115/

Changelog
1. Supported TrueArb: 2~16 kpts
2. Optimized the UI of selecting built-in arbs
3. Changed the clock switch strategy: When the clock source is set to External and no actual external clock signal is being received, the clock source will not switch to Internal automatically but the clock icon will indicate that external clock is lost.

Is there any way to save a screenshot of SDG1032X to a USB stick?

Don't remember well if they exist on SDG but try SCPI commands SCDP or BMP. Member Rerouter may help you.

Not with the front panel UI, just tried.  :(

There might be some how with the SCPI commands, dunno but have a look through them here:

Changelog
1. Supported TrueArb: 2~16 kpts
2. Optimized the UI of selecting built-in arbs


1. This also need urgently new updated User Manual's so that users can understand how to get all out from this  major improvement  and data sheets.
 
It is really nice upgrade. "TrueArb" technology  is big advantage in some situations when need Arb  without 1 clock jitter and/or jump over details, due to adjustable sampling speed (max 30Msa/s in TrueArb mode) and adjustabe Arb memory length. ( 2 to 16k.)

2. Previously selecting Arb from memory to use was cumbersome.  Also previously selecting Arb and then select some other Arb was really cumbersome. Now with this preview on screen and together with rotary encoder push it is easy and fast to select and change Arb waveforms in use. Well "Optimized" Siglent!

Interesting surprice find.

If practice and theory is not equal it tells that used application of theory  is wrong or the theory itself is wrong.
It is much easier to think an apple fall to the ground than to think that the earth and the apple will begin to move toward each other and collide.

Yesterday I found an issue with SDG1032X when I connected it to an audio amplifier. Every time I change frequency, I hear a click in the loudspeaker. I didn't check this issue with an oscilloscope but I know that it doesn't happen with my BK Precision BK4075. Is there any way to fix it?

Attached a video which demonstrates the issue.

SHELLCMD telnetd -l/bin/sh -p9999

Also works in this case  :-+, so no loading of special firmware is involved

Those .ADS do exactly the same and don't depend on the SHELLCMD availability...

During the final fase of implementing a method of doing measurements with the SDG1032X and SDS11004X-E with an accuracy of < 1 mV over a range of 0..1 V.

https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/using-a-awg-and-a-scope-do-a-low-voltage-level-characterization-of-a-1n4005/msg2467191/#msg2467191


I had an unoptimized glimps of it and was very pleased with the results, however the SDG1032X fails on me and starts up only showing the logo.   :scared:

I've seen Dave's recovery video, and also read this:
https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/the-siglent-sdg2042x-thread/msg1399308/#msg1399308

Is there a way to get the recovery files for this device and do a quick recovery?

I think I have what you need on the PC at home.
Do you know which FW version you had installed ?
I’ll be in touch by PM and will need your email to send the recovery files. I’ll be home in ~12 hrs.

Hi tautech, that would be great! My new device came with the newest firmware, so the recovery option should be included. Any idea whether the device depended calibration of it would survive the procedure?

This error got me thinking about the file system. If this problem is fixable, I would like to create further self constructed arbitrary waves at the usb drive. Does anyone know if thats possible using scpi commands?

Have a look here at some samples I got from the factory years back......they were for the SDG1000 series but should still work with X models:

Thanks for the link. But I didn’t find any info on how to select the wave destination. Maybe creating a symbolic link on the filesystem to redirect all custom waves to the usb drive is maybe the easiest.

I don’t know how well the wear leveling of the normal save location is.

That would be great, but there’s still the question whether the calibration will survive the recovery.

If it doesn’t, then it might become less useful, certainly regarding the level of precision it had and the use I made of it. I think we’ll have to see. Maybe there’s a procedure to create a copy of the calibration data?

Maybe it can boot from the usb, without altering anything so the procedure can be run even in the stuck boot situation?

Yes.  ;)

Thanks to tautech, :-+

I could go back to finalizing my experimenting with the wave generator and the scope.

https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/using-a-awg-and-a-scope-do-a-low-voltage-level-characterization-of-a-1n4005/msg2476044/#msg2476044

I haven't noticed any difference in how the device was/is calibrated, so that supports the idea that the calibration data is left alone. :-+
