PULSE


Set values...

Invokes a dialog, where you can type the values of pulse amplitudes in both waveforms, pulse width and set/reset the associated control bits.

Use Next/New and Previous buttons to move around in the waveform. Press Done when you are ready or Cancel to discard changes made to the currently selected pulse.

Shortcut: ctrl-F2

Mark this pulse

Include the selected pulse number in the list. Use Goto Marked pulse » to find it again.

The pulse number is remembered and it does not change if an original pulse changes its position in the waveform.

Shortcut: ctrl- M

Unmark pulse»

A hierarchical menu to remove a chosen pulse from the list.

Define sequence...

Define a selection of pulses by typing the pulse numbers in the dialog (from - to, inclusive).

Shortcut: ctrl-F

Shortcut: mouse click and drag in the waveform superposition display.

Mark selection

Remember the current selection. You may restore it later using Goto .

You may store multiple selections.

Set new pulse width...

Invokes a dialog to define the width of each new pulse you draw. It automatically changes the choice to Fixed width.

Shortcut: ctrl- W

Fixed width

Force each new pulse to have a predefined width.

As hit

The click coordinates define both the width and the amplitude of each new pulse.

This is the default choice.

Set control bit

Set a control bit associated with the selected pulse. This bit controls the TTL-compatible C-BIT output on the front panel of the corresponding output channel. It can be used to control some external devices.

The horizontal part of the affected pulse will be displayed in grey.

If the control bit is set, the title of this menu item changes to Reset control bit .

Note: Setting one or more control bits is another way of generating a trigger pulse, especially useful in Matrix mode with even/odd frame inversion (to trigger the scope on either frame, not both).

You may set the control bit in a selection of pulses at once.
