How Long Does it Take to Transfer Screen Images From the DL1540 to the PC via GPIB?

The transfer could take up to 10 seconds. Normally it is 6 or 7 seconds, however this will vary depending on the performance of the PC and the GP-IB board. On the DL1540C, this may take longer than 10 s, because the screen image data contains color information. Assure that the time-out setting for the PC being used is set long enough to accommodate the required transfer time.

Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes

A mixed signal oscilloscope is an instrument enabling the simultaneous, time correlated observations and analysis of analog with digital (logic) signals, to establish causal relationships between the various areas of a device's electronics. They are purpose-built tools for troubleshooting electrical anomalies, measuring parametric values, and monitoring cause and effect relationships between signals.


Oscilloscopes are a common type of test instrument used to capture, analyze, and troubleshoot electrical or real world physical signals. Oscilloscopes observe the change of electrical signals over time, continuously graphed on a display as voltage or amplitude vs. time.
