[edit] Logic analyzer

ARMFLY AX Pro is a Chinese clone of the CWAV USBee AX. supported by sigrok project, this page is using ARMFLY AX Pro or ARMFLY Mini-Logic, both are MAX 24MSPS(in short of Million Samples per Second).

[edit] Samplerate

Samplerate should always be higher then the rate of your signal, at least twice as high usually, the more the better, usage: -d 0:samplerate=4mhz

$ sigrok-cli  -d 0 #list supported samplerates
CWAV USBee AX with 8 probes
Supported triggers: 0 1

[edit] Decode UART

  • Dump the UART output to sigrok format:
 # sigrok-cli -A uart=hex -d 0:samplerate=4mhz --time 4s -o --probes 1,2 -a uart:tx=0:rx=1:baudrate=115200
  • Decode the UART output
 # while true; do sleep 1s && echo "hello world" > /dev/ttyATH0 ; done
 # sigrok-cli -i -a uart:rx=0:tx=1:baudrate=115200,uart_dump -s uart,uart_dump
 Hello World
 Hello World

  • Low speed device option

For Low speed device we need one more option signalling=low-speed for example

 # sigrok-cli -d 0:samplerate=24mhz --time 1s -o --probes 1,2 -a usb:dp=1:dm=0:signalling=low-speed

[edit] Oscilloscope

The Hantek DSO-2090 is an inexpensive USB-based oscilloscope. It has 2 channels, an analog bandwidth of 40MHz and 100MS/s sampling rate. check out more information at sigrok wiki page

[edit] Dump firmware

Dump firmware from Windows driver

# git clone git://
# cd sigrok-util
# ./ /media/cdrom/64bitDriver/Dso2090X861.sys 
# sudo cp hantek-dso-2090.fw /usr/local/share/sigrok-firmware/

[edit] Run

Those devices don't sample for a time or # of samples, like an LA, they capture a buffer's full, send it out, then do it all again in other words: frames, so don't use --time or --samples, use --frames. e.g. 1 to capture one frame, send it out, then stop. second, the default is to trigger on CH1, so hook some signal into it or it'll wait forever. for all the other options, do: sigrok-cli -d hantek-dso

# sigrok-cli  --frames 1 -O float
