Topic : serious issues after firmware upgrade

Hi Gabriel...? Any update on this issue?

Is my minilab capable of running 2.40? Is it too old? Is there any way I can upgrade it to match whatever changes you have made to current version?

Subject :Are you still supporting Winduhs XP SP3 or are there some archives I could search?

When I attempt to run Zadig, I get an error message (Zadig Error.jpg) regarding msvcrt.dll 3 times, but it still claims success (Zadig But Still I get.jpg and Zadig.log).

After that when I attempt to run xscope.exe, I get another error regarding Qt5Gui.dll. See 86ff_appcompat.txt.

Topic : Smaller buttons on the XScope screen?

Those of us who are fortunate enough or geeky enough to have their computers connected to 40" screens don't really need buttons so large... Just a suggestion. BTW, I do love the program.

Since both of my 64 bit machines recently died, I must endure the bleary screen of Winduhs for running XScope. I so truly love the crisp screens of Mint. Hint, hint, please?

Thanks Gabriel. That did solve the problem. Using FW 2.44 now.

Topic : serious issues after firmware upgrade

Ciao Gabriel, thank you for responding so quickly! In answer to your question, the display is green in colour. I just took the case apart and on the top surface of the board, above the display screen, it says Rev 1.1 -- so this is a very early unit.

It seems unlikely that it will ever run firmware 2.40, being so old. So I fear I have broken it, because even the "older hardware" firmware version I have will not flash so there is no going back (sigh). Do you have the hex and eep files still for this very early generation? Can I upgrade it to a later rev by swapping parts, or were there board design changes as well? I may just have to grit my teeth and buy an up-to-date model :-)

What hardware do you have? It is marked on the back of the board.

What is the color of the display?

A few Xprotolab went out to the wild with a bad firmware. Thankfully, it is a simple fix. Just upgrade the firmware, the HEX file is here, the procedure in the manual, section 9.2.

Topic : Brand new Xprotolab, auto-resetting every 5-7 seconds [SOLVED]

Received Xprotolab as a gift. HW 1.8, FW 2.45.

Unfortunately, it has a strange problem (out of the box) - it keeps resetting (rebooting) every 5 or 7 seconds, if I don't press any button.

If I use buttons to change modes, sensitivity etc. then it works fine. But as soon as I leave it for more than 5 seconds it reboots itself. Very annoying.

Interestingly, in 'slow' mode (1S/div) it reboots after 8 seconds exactly (8 horizontal DIVs).

I tried different micro USB cables, USB ports and standalone 5V adapters. Did Factory Reset (Restore), disabled "Sleep" option... made no difference at all.

I live in Europe so return would be difficult. Any ideas, what to check, what part could be faulty?

Topic : serious issues after firmware upgrade

I used dfu-programmer to upgrade my firmware to 2.40.  This appeared to succeed with no errors.  I flashed the firmware because I was trying to use the device with Xscope on OSX.  Xscope did not work, and showed me a warning that I needed to upgrade my firmware.  Alas, upgrading the firmware seems to have broken my device.

"Broken" in this case means not quite bricked, but the device does not behave according to the Dec 2014 version of the manual and most functions seem to be inaccessible.

Manual says

- The tactile switches are named (from left to right) K1, K2, K3 and K4.

The K4 is the Menu button.

- Press and hold the K1 key (auto setup). The screen should look like figure 16.

- Pressing K2 or K3 will change the sampling rate

After power-up, K4 no longer does anything whether held or not.  My initial screen shows both ch1 and ch2 side by side, displaying a generated waveform when AWG is selected, not just ch1 as in manual.

K1 briefly pressed stops the display, but sometimes what is shown is random dots rather than a dotted sine wave.

Pressing and holding K1 does not result in the single trace screen shown in the manual.  Instead, it also stops the screen update.

Once stopped using K1, the banner at bottom suggests that K2 and K3 should shift the waveform left and right.  However, if I play with these buttons... K2 does nothing.  If I press K3 I get a new bottom banner for about half a second, then the screen goes dark and the unit has to be rebooted.  K4 is not enough to get it started again.  I have to press K1 first, then K4 to start.

When it starts up again, it's in some other mode:  voltage rather than trace.  But the bottom banner still reads "STOP ... MOVE- ... MOVE+" as if it were in scope mode.  I am completely disoriented :-)

 

I did try upgrading the firmware for older hardware (I am not sure how to tell which hardware I have).  I got error messages indicating overlap of firmware and boot loader, and after this flash the device was bricked.  I figured this was evidence that I do not have the older (pre v2) hardware.  So I reverted to the firmware for v2 hardware series.

 

Further poking about indicates that K3 always kills the device, no matter what screen I am on.

I was hoping to use this handy, dandy little device (which I bought some years back) as a debug tool for my Arduino projects.  I'm really disappointed that it seems to be broken.  As it turns out I can sort of use it, if I bring it up in default mode (both channels side by side) and touch no other buttons.  I am monitoring a pwm output right now and it looks approximately right (I can see the duration of the high dc phase changing as the pwm value changes).  However, it appears that much of the functionality is lost, and the buttons do not do anything like what the manual says they should.

Can anyone help to understand why K3 always kills my unit, why it doesn't behave according to the manual etc?

Hello, that DIY Xprotolab Plain looks very good.
I have other things going on and not much time to spend on software developing. There have been some people doing some work on github: https://github.com/ganzziani/xscopes-qt/network

Topic : My Xprotolab Plain

Hello! Today I semi-finished my DIY clone of Xprotolab Plain. It looks like this:
http://bildites.lv/a/69nvgudn#zc9vn6ch
I have to say, I like that Windows host software. I read somewhere, it is sort of "first version", not polished, but it is pretty impressive as it is. That being said, I am curious - is there any plans to advance and polish this software even more?
Also, my hat is off to Author for providing everything - schematics, binaries, everything.
I wonder, will we see in future some more oscilloscopes, probably different hardware platform, better bandwidth?
In any case - my Big Thank You!  :)

Topic : Cable Issues

I purchased an Xprotolab Plain to work with Oscilloscope Pro and both work great, Thanks.

The problem is the cables I bought,
Micro USB Cable 3ft and Micro USB OTG Adapter.

If I plug the right angle connector of the Micro USB OTG Adapter into the Xprotolab Plain, it does not work.
If I reverse the cables and plug the right angle connector of the Micro USB OTG Adapter into the  Samsung smartphone, it works just fine.

Why?
Should I have bought a different cables?

The Xprotolab Plain is a great product!

Do you have a email contact address?

Topic : Compiling for PINE64 (arm64)

Hello,

 

I'm trying to get the PC interface running on my PINE64.  It's an arm64 platform.

I downloaded the source code for the pc interface, and ran it through cmake and then make, and it made an xscope executable.  I can run it and I see the familiar interface.  It looks like it's going to work.

Then I go to the Options tab and click the Connect button, but it can't connect over USB.  I've got the xproto plain hooked up to the USB port on the PINE64.  I've taken the exact cable over to my Windows machine, plugged it in, and the PC interface connects no problem.

I'm guessing it's a driver issue of some sort, but I don't even know where to start.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Rick

Thanks for posting this. I should have read it a while ago as I didn't realize that you could move the trigger symbol on the screen and that set the level.

Topic : problems updating firmware

Thanks for your response!

Since I installed drivers via Zadig, I thought I was good to go, but after installing the drivers from FLIP (for the Unkown Device in Windows' Device Manager when in bootloader mode), everything is alright and I was able to update. The Xmini is now running firmware 2.40.

Thanks!

After placing the device on bootloader mode, did you install the USB drivers from the FLIP folder?
