Search and Mark Events Use Advanced Search and Mark to automatically mark events and document waveforms. Search positive/negative slopes or both, glitches, runts, pulse widths, transition rate, setup and hold, timeout, windows, or find any logic or state pattern, up to 8 different event types on any of the 4 analog channels. Search DDR Read or Write bursts with Opt. DDRA.; When an event of interest is found with a hardware trigger, other similar events can be found using "Mark All Trigger Events in Record" in the Pinpoint trigger control windows; The Event table summarizes all found events. All events are time stamped in reference to trigger position. You can choose to stop acquisitions when an event is found. Waveform measurements: Cursors Waveform and Screen, Automatic measurements 53, of which 8 can be displayed on-screen at any one time; Measurement Statistics Mean, Minimum, Maximum, Standard Deviation; Reference Levels User-definable reference levels for automatic measurements can be specified in either percent or units; Gating: Isolate the specific occurrence within an acquisition to take measurements on, using either screen or waveform cursors; Amplitude related: Amplitude, High, Low, Maximum, Minimum, Peak-to-Peak, Mean, Cycle Mean, RMS, Cycle RMS, Positive Overshoot, Negative Overshoot; Time related: Rise Time, Fall Time, Positive Width, Negative Width, Positive Duty Cycle, Negative Duty Cycle, Period, Frequency, Delay; Combination: Area, Cycle Area, Phase, Burst Width; Histogram related: Waveform Count, Hits in Box, Peak Hits, Median, Maximum, Minimum, Peak-to-Peak, Mean (μ), Standard Deviation (sigma), μ +1sigma, μ+2sigma, μ+3sigma; Eye-pattern related: Extinction Ratio (absolute, %, dB), Eye Height, Eye Width, Eye Top, Eye Base, Crossing %, Jitter (p-p, RMS, 6sigma), Noise (p-p, RMS), Signal/Noise Ratio, Cycle Distortion, Q-Factor; Waveform Histograms: A waveform histogram provides an array of data values representing the total number of hits inside a user-defined region of the display. A waveform histogram is both a visual graph of the hit distribution and a numeric array of values that can be measured; Sources – Channel 1, Channel 2, Channel 3, Channel 4, Ref 1, Ref 2, Ref 3, Ref 4, Math 1, Math 2, Math 3, Math 4; Types – Vertical, Horizontal. Waveform processing/math: Number of Math Waveforms Up to 4; Arithmetic Add, Subtract, Multiply, Divide Waveforms and Scalars; Algebraic expressions: Define extensive algebraic expressions including waveforms, scalars, user-adjustable variables, and results of parametric measurements. Perform math on math using complex equations. e.g. (Integral (CH1 – Mean(CH1)) × 1.414 × VAR1); Math functions: Average, Invert, Integrate, Differentiate, Square Root, Exponential, Log 10, Log e, Abs, Ceiling, Floor, Min, Max, Sin, Cos, Tan, ASin, ACos, ATan, Sinh, Cosh, Tanh; Relational: Boolean result of comparison >, <, ≥, ≤, ==, !=; Frequency domain functions: Spectral Magnitude and Phase, Real and Imaginary Spectra; FFT vertical units: Magnitude: Linear, dB, dBm Phase: Degrees, radians, group delay; FFT window functions: Rectangular, Hamming, Hanning, Kaiser-Bessel, Blackman-Harris, Gaussian, Flattop2, Tek Exponential; Waveform definition: As an arbitrary math expression; Filtering function: User-definable filters. Users specify a file containing the coefficients of the filter. Several example filter files are provided; Customized Functions using Math Plug-in Interface: An interface is provided to allow users to create their own custom math functions in MATLAB or Visual Studio; Mask function: Generates a Waveform Database pixel map from a sample waveform. Sample count can be defined.
