So, two new topics, and one new release. A minor bugfix release actually, as it should solve the "export to PNG" problem on Windows and Linux. See topic starter post for download links, full change log and so on.

Small list of changes:
  • fixed image export on Linux and Windows hosts;
  • store straight/slanted edge slopes in user preferences.

Hello JaWi;

I tested your alternative release 0.91 with my original Sump hardware (Spartan 3 starter kit). I like the fact that this software is been really actively developed and would like to see support for the original hardware too (as additional device?), specifically on the sample memory size depth subject.  Is it possible to add user configuration for the maximum memory size of the device used? I know it is already working fine from the drop down box when using the open bench logic sniffer, but the maximum selectable sample memory is only 24K vs 256K capability of the original Sump.

Keep on the good work!

Best regards,

Kreutz.

Hi kreutz,

Thanks for the suggestion; I put this on my TODO list for next release. How exactly these extended memory settings will be provided in the configuration is something I've to think about. I'll keep you posted (and maybe drop you a line if I've got something to test ;))

Would it be possible to move the serial speed and sample size to an .ini file? This is something we discussed clear back at the beginning of the project (to take advantage of the increased USB/SPI link speeds). Someone also recently requested 4096K for the Bus Pirate and IR Toy (I'd need to double check the exact memory sizes). It would be handy to add new speeds/sample depths easily.

I just released version 0.9.2 of my client! See topic starter post for download links, full change log and so on.

List of changes:
  • Added 1-wire decoder tool. Still experimental, but should be usable;
  • Improved support for OSX Leopard (10.5). Thanks to Brent for testing/verifying this;
  • Some improvements for the limited number of channels when using the BP as capturing device. Thanks to Ian for supplying the BP-binary;
  • Reworked the decoding of RLE-enabled captures, this, among others, should fix the "OutOfMemory" issue & occasional mangling of captured RLE-results. Thanks to Rasmus & Mario for their effort in testing this;
  • Added an option to the I2C decoder tool to disable the auto-detection of SDA/SCL lines. Thanks to Jeff for this;
  • Several other bugfixes.

Thanks everybody for your remarks, comments and bugfixes!

Request
  • real time acquisition. for e.g. trough named pipe or other resource.
  • client side triggers for the real time acquisition stream

well, in theory adc can sample the data and real time acquisition + client side triggers can then display it as analog data as well as digital data .. I tried something similar with my real time acquisition from 2232h but I did not find adc that can do 60MHz :(

Do you mean the OLS or in the software? The software already has o-scope modes.

i was thinking like an addon board with an adc, voltage ref, and programmable amplifier and do the rest in software

Now that there is the FT2232 breakout wouldn't it be nice to add it as a logic analyzer source?

I have found two native java libs for the ftdi chips:

This would allow 60MHz sampling speed with virtually unlimited sampling depth!

the sample source is there :) http://dangerousprototypes.com/forum/in ... pic=1495.0 ... we can either use java to access ftdi directly or we can use proxy application on localhost and fetch data trough named pipe or similar ...
