Step 29: Sodtware Start

Picture of Sodtware Start
Launch the DPScope SE software. It should look like the picture below. This means the scope communicates successfully with the PC! (If you get a message saying that no instrument has been detected, unplug the USB cable, wait a few seconds and plug it in again. Normally this should not happen though.)

Press the “Run” button – the button label changes to “Stop” and the two scope traces should come alive. Sometimes – when there is very little noise on the signals – it can be hard to see whether the traces get updated or not. Choose some higher average setting and see if the number of acquisiton counts up all the way to this setting.
