Advanced trigger software

Postby JSMG » Wed Oct 05, 2016 4:35 pm

I'm not sure this post is on the correct forum, if not, I'm sure someone will tell me.
I have been for some time writing a program incorporating all off the demon core features and I would like to share a first result on this forum. It's certainly not bug free but should be serviceable. It is written in C#, requires net framework 4.0 client profile and should work on most windows versions. The working part of the program is based on the list provided by ian Davis in the demon core specification. As far as i can tell all advanced trigger functions work as described in this doc and I must thank Ian for the fine work he has done.
If there is any interest I will publish the source as open source, though for now I don't know how to do this.
Try it and let me know what you think about it.

It works (alfa version I assume) here on win7 64b. Does not recognize port under virtual box win7 64b.
What I think: Great, but needs fine tuning and a LOT of work in the area of displaying the waves, handling the cursors, etc. (the devil is in the detail), when people start to use it.. Even Jawi's client is still not perfect in that area, imho..
Are you ready to spend next years with it ?? :)
Some screenshots below. The triggering scheme is Extreme :) :)

Wow, looks just like what I'm looking for!

I tried to run it under Mono on Ubuntu 16.04.1 but failed. Mono doesn't recognize the setup program as a CIL image so I didn't very far. Is source available? If so I'd like to try to compile it under Mono.

Do you have edge triggering working? I'm trying to implement advanced triggers under sigrok, and at times it seems like it's triggering at the appropriate time (i.e. if I set an edge trigger, it sits and waits until I feed it edges and then it triggers) but the captured data (including some pre-trigger samples) doesn't show an edge.

I'm wondering if I have the right FPGA core... there's reference to a 3.08b core on t'internet but no actual files to download.

Any pointers gratefully received!
