Using the USB Logic Analyzer with sigrok PulseView
An 8-channel, 24MHz USB logic analyzer for under $20. What a deal!
But a USB logic analyzer (LA) is only as useful as the software required to configure and monitor the tool. There are a few software options available for this USB logic analyzer; in this tutorial we aim to familiarize you with sigrok's PulseView.
sigrok is an open-source suite of software projects -- all focused on supporting signal analysis tools. The project includes:
- PulseView -- A logic analyzer front end with a simple GUI.
- sigrok-cli -- A command line interface for sigrok -- useful for scripting tests or running on a headless machine.
- fx2grok -- A collection of open-source hardware LA layouts, schematics, and BOM's.
With an eye towards logic analyzers, this tutorial will focus mostly on PulseView.
