It’s that time of the year again. No, not the one where the season is changing in earnest, but time for a new release version of the WaveForms software!
Historically speaking, a new WaveForms release has coincided with release of new hardware. To the surprise of all of us, this is not the case this time. Instead, this release is more akin to a feature and stability update. Since the release of the Analog Discovery 3 back in June of this year, everybody, both externally on the Test and Measurement Forum, and internally has been keeping the incredibly talented WaveForms developer Attila very busy with new feature requests, bug fixes, cosmetic changes, and quality of life updates.
The formal release of 3.21.1 is freely available through the MyProducts section on the Digilent Cloud and the changelog is available on theWaveForms Resource Center.
If you’re still here reading this blog post instead of actively using the new WaveForms version for some reason, I suppose I can take you through some of the new feature highlights that come with WaveForms 3.21.1.
- Measurements Extent has been introduced, allowing users to focus their measurements on specific signal segments. Read more about it here: Limiting the Scope of a Measurement with Extent for Measurements in WaveForms – Digilent Blog
- “Scope to Digital” in WaveForms is a feature that allows you to interpret analog signals as digital in the Scope instrument’s Digital view. Learn more here: Scope to Digital – Interpreting Analog Input Signals as Digital Signals in WaveForms 3.21.2 – Digilent Blog
- Analog Input Filters allow you to filter out the noise and focus on essential data. The Analog Discovery 3, Eclypse Z7, and Analog Discovery Pro 3000 series devices offer the capability to implement their own filters.
