Version 1.30.0 of the Multi Channel oscilloscope software is now available for download. A demo version is also available, which can be used without connecting measuring instruments.

This is a list of some of the changes:

  • Handyscope HS5:
    • Added support for trigger outputs of the arbitrary waveform generator (AWG).
    • Added support for all trigger inputs of oscilloscope and function generator.
    • Reduced oscilloscope trigger jitter when using external or generator trigger sources.
    • Added logarithmic sweeping of sine, triangular and square wave signal to Handyscope HS5 XM function generators.
    • Added hotkeys for AWG
  • Graph:
    • Added popup menu item for arranging axes in several ways.
    • Added popup menu item for exporting data between cursors.
    • Added option to popup menu to snap vertical cursors to sample positions in time and frequency domain.
    • Added graph comment popup menu item 'clone with arrows'.
    • When a graph comment is dragged and Ctrl is held down, its arrows are also moved.
    • Added 'Line visible' popup menu item to scales to be able to temporary hide lines.
    • Added measurement selection toolbuttons to cursor value window:
      Cursor readout window
  • Improved auto setup handling of record length and trigger time out.
  • All sources, I/Os and sinks now have a 'Help' menu item. When F1 is pressed, specific help for root nodes or selected objects in the object tree is shown.
  • Fixed problem of inverted Handyscope HS3 and TiePieSCOPE HS805 AWG offset polarity, occasionally occurring with some USB 3.0 ports.
  • Enabled TiePieSCOPE HS805 trigger output on D-sub pin 11.
  • Improved amplitude switching behavior of Handyscope HS3 AWGs.
  • Changed meter display formatting to prevent values like '0.6444 kV' by default and display '644.4 V' instead.
  • Fixed problem during loading of 2 channel WinSoft files with accompanying .GEG file.
  • Increased loading speed of WinSoft .DAT ASCII files with 48%, and WinSoft .DAT binary and WAV files with a factor 41.
  • Bugfixes in data exporting of Handyscope HS5, combined instruments and other sources.
Information: When using a Handyscope HS5 with Multi Channel oscilloscope software 1.30, Handyscope HS5 driver version 7.1.6 is required. It can be downloaded from the download page.
