BANNER_IBPD_Logic_Analyzer_Device_database

The LAD Database is a single click setup type database allowing the user to configure setups for data collection and label the configuration as a database record for recall.   Each (*.dbx) database file allows up to 256 unique configurations with a unlimited number of database files that may be saved to a user selected directory.   The Default directory allows the organization of these database files as well as the remaining LAD files to be easily grouped as a default set expanding the flexibility of the product development organization.

IBPD_LAD_DATABASE

 

[1] CURRENT LOGIC ANALYZER CONFIGURATION DATABASE ACTIVE

This field is automatically set to the users default database from the main menu.  When the database dialog is opened the Last modified and Data created are displayed to the user.  If no default database has been set then the user may load a config database and browse the system for the desired database.  The default database location is setup in the Default Directories dialog.

[2] Select a Configuration to Edit

This is the current configuration set in the database.  On opening a new database this is the first record in the database.  The total number of records are displayed.  For editing the user may mark the record for deletion or restore it at any time prior to updating the database.   Once the database is updated the record is permanently removed.

[3] Current Configuration Name Information

The Current record open will display the Configuration Name, a data File List Filename, a Command List Filename, and a configuration data sheet of the device the data is being collected with the unique configuration name.  The data file list will show the number of LAD data files in the DFL list file that pertains to this configuration.

[4] CONFIG DATABASE ADD / EDIT / UPDATE  MAIN MENU

The MAIN MENU is separated into four groups that address all the functions to handle the LAD configuration setup.  This is not the same as the LAD Load & Save data file dialog.  The DFL file saves both Data and setup as well as allow comments within the file for future recall and user data information.  This database only saves the setup parameters to perform a single click setup of multiple parameters.

[5] Database Maintenance

Update Config Database

This function updates the database currently opened.  All the configuration names that the user marked for deletion will be permanently deleted from the database.

Copy Config Database

This function allows the user to copy a the current database to a different database filename for future editing.  No updating is performed, this is an exact copy function.

Create New Config DB

This function will allow the user to create a empty new configuration database of one default record.

Set Current DB Default

This function will set the current database open to the default database when the dialog is called.

Save LAD Config DB

This function will save the configuration database to a user selected database filename.  The default directory will appear however the user may save the database anywhere allowed by the system.

[6] Configuration Maintenance

The Configuration maintenance menu is where that actual setup of the Logic Analyzer takes place.  The channel ID,  Color Scheme, Timing parameters Time Bars and Channel Group Configuration.

Update Current Config

This function allows the user to save a current collected LAD datafile to any directory that is available to the network.

Copy Config to New

This function allows the user to load a saved LAD datafile for presentation or review and also add it to the DFL list box.

L:OGIC_LEVEL_ID Each Bit has a Trigger Recognition state that is selectable by the user.   the standard Hi and Low steady states are selectable for all 16 bits.   The Transitions states Low to High and High to Low are selectable for only one bit.

[11] DATA TIMING SETUP & CONTROL

This is the data timing and control configuration for the trace data collected.

[12] CONFIGURE TIMING BARS 0-6

These are the timing bars set by the user.  There are 7 timing bars, 0-6; Timing bar 0 is always the reference bar.  Timing bars have a user selected color and timing based on the full trace time.
