Measurement & Analysis

I collected under this category all my projects that have more or less to do with equipment for measurements, procedures, tests and software applications I built to do experiments. Majority of these involve electronics and electronic devices.

OCXO tests

A couple of months passed since I purchased two 10 MHz OCXO modules from eBay. And, to my shame, I didn’t even tried these. Yesterday I did a quick test and the devices are spot on. Both measured on my TTi TF930 3GHz frequency counter: The OCXO needs apx 10 minutes for proper warm up […]

SCPI on Mac

Some more days passed and some more finishing touches added to my MacSCPI app. It is entirely dependent on hooking the device via the USBTMC driver, but it works fine and is stable: I had some problems with buffer padding and the output it is still not 100% gibberish–free , but I assume I have to play with […]

USBTMC driver for Mac

After some head banging, I finally managed to send SCPI commands from my Mac to my Agilent (Keysight) DSOX2002A. I’ve worked on this since december last year. Almost a year, but I did not spent a sustained amount of effort. I did it just during my free time. I still have a day job that […]

Rigol Spectrum Analyzer !

I’ve kept drooling for this for several years. Today I finally got it ! Moreover, it seems it is fully-option enabled, which is kinda weird because I haven’t ordered for such. However, here it is: the Rigol DSA 815 TG Spectrum Analyzer with tracking generator. This will enhance my lab’s capabilities in RF electronics and […]

C#, SCPI and Keysight (Agilent) DSO-X 2002A

This post is a relic. The initial draft dates back in January 19, 2013. And was left as draft ever since. Past couple of days I was busy — among other things — learning a new programming language, C#. 🙂 Ok, here’s the deal: my scope (KeysightAgilent DSO-X 2002A) is SCPI–compliant device. If you remember, the reason behind […]

LTSpice Parameter Sweep

While designing/ working on my APRS project, I used LTSpice IV for some simulations. For those that don’t know, LTspice IV is a high performance SPICE simulator, schematic capture and waveform viewer from Linear Technology. It is a freeware and can be downloaded from this link. Versions for my both platforms exist, Win 7.0 and Mac. […]

Agilent DSO-X 2002A driver for Mac OS X

December again, another year passed. Traditionally, this is a month when I am taking a long break. But I was up to something in the past days and I wanted to share. I have created a driver for my KeysightAgilent DSO-X 2002A oscilloscope. Maybe not a big deal, but huge for me because this is […]

Agilent InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series Oscilloscopes Programmer’s Guide

Keysight’sAgilent’s InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series Oscilloscopes Programmer’s Guide is highly recommended for anyone interested in remotely controlling KeysightAgilent InfiniiVision 2000 X-Series Oscilloscopes. Via back USB slot. For example: Unfortunately, the [remote] control is limited only to Win PCs. AFAIK. Have to write a review soon about the cool KeysightAgilent Connection Expert, the client app installed together with the KeysightAgilent […]

Agilent DSOX 2002A

Finally arrived !

I just got it few days ago, a superb brand new Agilent 2002A Digital Storage Oscilloscope. Needless to say that I am absolutely thrilled by this 2G/s 70Mhz baby. It is a perfect addition for my electronics projects. Now I am playing with it, much to discover in the documentation. It comes with a CD […]
