The Cleverscope system has a very wide capability, which we illustrate with video and text. Our videos and Tutorials give step-by-step instructions on specific operations with a Cleverscope. Screenshots taken during operation of a Cleverscope show exactly what you can expect to see.
Sample setup files for your Cleverscope are .apc files that capture all settings and screen placements for the scope, enabling repeatability for experiments and testing. They are very useful for university class sets to be initialised for a particular scenario.
Download and extract from the zip file. Go to File | Open and browse to the .apc file. Where "Get Frame" had been clicked before saving the full frame is included in the file
You can use Charting to stream captured samples to disk continuously at up to 3 Msps. The maximum capture size is around 300 G samples. After having captured you can zoom and pan very quickly to find the features important to you. This video shows you how
This streaming capture shows streaming for 10 hours, live protocol decoding, spectrum analysis, zooming, tracking graph usage, all while capturing at 1 MSPS for over 38 G Samples.
Following on from the measurement of the 22uF capacitor, we add a Wurth 330uF polymer electrolytic capacitor in parallel, and look at the resulting Impedance and Resr.
We use the Cleverscope FRA system and hand made jig to measure the impedance/frequency curve for a low impedance 22uF ceramic capacitor. We examine it's application in power supply filtering.
How to count events using a Cleverscope
You can use the 'AddRef' persistence command to make a family of curves, and then step around them, and make further measurements as needed.
The FRA BNC Fixture calibration procedure corrects for amplitude, gain and phase errors introduced by a test fixture.
Use the Cleverscope Frequency Response Analyser to measure the Gain/Phase of a power supply. This video shows you how to connect up a CS328A-FRA to measure the Gain/Phase of an LTC3589 over the frequency range 20 Hz - 1 MHz.
