A3-A0 = 1001 should be all you need to activate OUT0-OUT7. It works in our designs. Maybe double check the address lines with an oscilloscope.

Hello, I am Lynsey. now I set A3-A0 to 1001 in ROI mode, but only OUT0 has output, and the other seven channels(OUT1-OUT7) do not output corresponding waveforms.

In ROI mode, can OUT0-OUT7 output sampled waveforms at the same time?

thank you very much

Thanks for your help. If I look into the app the behavior for the 4 channels is exactly as you show:

Now, when I sample with my code something strange happens, two of the channels are fine and the other two are wrong:

This is a surprise to me because I acquire the 4 channels in the same way within a `for` loop. To get the time data I use `DRSBoard::GetTime` with the `tcalibrated` argument set to `true`. Is there any aditional step to use the calibration?

Best,
Matias.

If your points do not lie on a smooth line, you might habe a problem such as the wrong channel for calibration, an offset of 1 in the index of the time array or some other software bug. Measure the same signal with the DRSOsc application and then your code. If the results differ, you have a software problem on your side.

Dear Stefan,

For the time of each bin I am using the values returend by `GetTime` without any assumption by my side. I did not notice before that the sampling time is not uniform, but I see that this is already happening. This is an example plot from one of the signals I processed:

Screenshot-2022-03-12-17-07-46

The bin at 65.5 ns and the next one are closer than their neighbors. So this seems to indicate that the time calibration is being taken into account when I acquire the time bins using `GetTime`, is this correct?

To obtain the final time resolution I am using the constant fraction discriminator method and the signals are linearly interpolated to obtain the time at each percentage value, as seen in the plot. I have already measured time resolutions in the 5-100 ps range with exactly the same setup but using the LeCroy oscilloscope, which I am using just for data acquisition, and my software for offline analysis as shown in the plot above. Now what I am trying to do is to replace the LeCroy by the DRS4 Evaluation Board basically, so I can use the oscilloscope in a different setup.

Best,
Matias.

If you want to measure timing down to ps, you need some basic knowledge, especially about signal-to-noise and risetime. This cannot be taught in a few sentenses, needs a full lecture. As a starting point please read that papat:

https://arxiv.org/abs/1405.4975

then you will understand why you measure different resolutions with different peak heights (and different rise times).

Concerning the DRS4 measurement, please be aware that the sampling poings are not equidistant, like not every 200ps for GSPS. They vary bin by bin significantly, from 50ps to 300ps. So you alway have to analyse the X/Y points as an array, not just the Y values assuming deltaX of 200ps. Probably you forgot that. Then, you have to interpolate between bins to find the crossing over your threshold. Linear interpolation is already good, spline interpolation even better. Deep inside Measurement.cpp of the drsosc program you find in the source code:

t1 = (thr*(x1[i]-x1[i-1])+x1[i-1]*y1[i]-x1[i]*y1[i-1])/(y1[i]-y1[i-1]);

which is the linear interpolation (thr is the threshold). You have to use (and understand!) similar code.

Best,
Stefan

Sorry for the spam. Just want to let you know that I was able to solve the problem, it was all due to a `float` being casted as `int` in the Python binding. Now it works like a charm.

I have seen in the app that the trigger source buttons do something different than the "or" and "transparent trigger" buttons:

If I enable the setup from the right, i.e. OR in CH4 and "Enable Transparent Trigger" the app stops triggering.

For some reason in that code it still triggers (I have modified the code to trigger on CH4 instead of CH1 and the trigger level, polarity, etc.).

What does the button in the left actually do? The circular checkbox with the "4" I mean. This is the trigger configuration I want to get in the C++ code.

I also don't know what the function `DRSBoard::EnableTrigger` does, what is the meaning of `flag1` and `flag2`? In my code there is a call to this function which I copied from the example.

I tried your measurement with the DRSOscilloscope app (see below), and I measure a constant difference of 10 Hz among the whole range of 100 Hz to 3 kHz.

So I don't know what's wrong on your side. Did you try with the oscilloscope app as well? Have you checked your pulse generator? The evaluation board time reference is a quartz with an accuracy of 10^-5, so no way one can get there a difference you see.

The scalers are read out 10x per seconds, so they have an accuracy of 10 Hz. I tried a 50 Hz pulser, and measured 40 Hz, I tried 52 Hz and measured 50 Hz. This is about what you can expect.

The scaler rate is measured after the discriminator of the trigger, so the trigger level also affects the scaler reading. If you have a 100 mV pulse and your threshold is 200 mV, your scaler rate drops to zero. That can be seen best with the DRSOsc and sliding the trigger value. If you have a 50 Hz pulse with narrow (< us) pulses, things are fine. But if you use a 50 Hz square wave, then you get distorted signals due to the AC coupling which can also be confusing.

The timestamp difference between the initial event and the final event is 19.98 seconds.

  873   Mon Mar 7 13:38:03 2022 Radoslaw MarcinkowskiProblems with DRS4 Evaluation Board after Windows 10 upgrade - share of experiences

Dear DRS4 Users,

I would like to share my expireinces with using of DRS4 Evaluation Board software (oscilloscope) after upgrade of Windows 10.

I had Windows 10 (Enterprise) in version from ~2016. It was working fine with DRS4 Scope software. Due to the company policy, Windows was upgraded to the newer version (2019). Since this time the board was not recognized any more as DRS4 Evaluation Board, both by Windows and DRS4 Scope standard software. Changing USB sockets did not help at all. I installed once more time Zadig USB driver (suggested by https://www.psi.ch/en/drs/software-download), no Admistrator rights were needed. It took long time, about 10 minutes or more, it suggested restart in the meantime, and finally noticed that ... installation failed! Even that, DRS4 software started to recognize the board without the problem even without reboot. Let me notice that all users on this machine can use the DRS4 software even if installation was done by non-administrator user.

 

Regards,

Radek

I have connected 3 signals to the DRS4 Evaluation Board V5 which look like this in the drsosc app:

Note that here I am sampling at 5 GS/s. Using this app everything works perfect.

Now I want to repeat this using the C++ API (which I am actually wrapping to use within Python, see here if interested https://github.com/SengerM/pydrs ) but can only make this to work at lower sampling frequencies up to 3.9 GS/s. This is how I am configuring the board followint the `drs_exam.cpp` file:

```python
board.set_sampling_frequency(Hz=SAMPLING_FREQ)
board.set_transparent_mode('on')
board.set_input_range(center=0)
board.enable_trigger(True,False) # Don't know what this line does, it was in the example `drs_exam.cpp`.
board.set_trigger_source('ch4')
board.set_trigger_level(volts=-.1)
board.set_trigger_polarity(edge='falling')
board.set_trigger_delay(seconds=TRIGGER_DELAY)

```

The full code is here https://github.com/SengerM/pydrs/blob/master/tests/test_drs.py but anyway, my previous snippet can be considered as pseudo-code and if more details needed I can provide.

This is what I get as I increase the sampling frequency:

Up to 3.95 GS/s it works perfectly. At >= 4 GS/s it just never triggers. A few times I was able to make this work at 4 and 5 GS/s playing with the trigger delay, but this seemed to be some kind of random luck because I was not able to replicate it even with the same values.

Any help is appreciated.

Best,
Matías.

  868   Thu Mar 3 13:47:26 2022 Stefan RittHow to convert samples to volt?

The 'drscl' tool is more for experts, normal users are advised to use the DRSOsc oscilloscope.

The board has to be calibrated for a given sampling speed before calibrated data can be read out. Do that with the "calib" command, specifying 5 for the sampling rate, 0 for the range (which is the middle between -0.5 and +0.5) and 1 for 1024 mode. If you then do "start", "stop", "read 0 1" you get calibrated data in mV.

(drsosc:4611): Gtk-WARNING **: 14:05:11.249: Negative content width -2 (allocation 0, extents 1x1) while allocating gadget (node trough, owner GtkScale)

 

If yes, how did you solve it?

All ideas are appreciated!

Cheers,

Dmitry

The trigger comparator is a ADCMP601 unit which requires a minimum pulse width of 3-4 ns. I see that your pulses are only 1-2 ns wide. You have to make your pulses wider in order to trigger on them.
