Logic Sniffer: Updated VHDL code and continous sampling mode
- New SPI code, works with the latest PIC firmware (v3.0)
- Working Metadata command
- New RLE code; n bit counters for n bit data width (except for 24 bits). Additional compression for cases with zero run lengths. RLE stop command is also implemented
- Fixed the spurious triggers due to floating external trigger pin
- Resolved timing issues
On my netbook with version 3.0 of the PIC firmware, the system can only achieve a maximum sample rate of 10kHz for 8 bit samples. Currently, the bottleneck is the PIC USB transfer rate.
Included is a test SUMP client to demonstrate this new capability. Select Test Mode and memory depth of 256K. Test mode outputs the contents of a 32 bit counter incremented by the sample rate clock.
Note that triggering is ignored and RLE is not supported.
