Yokogawa has released firmware Version 3.20 for the DL850 ScopeCorder series of instruments, which combine the features of a high-speed oscilloscope and those of a traditional data acquisition recorder in a single, portable instrument.
A key feature of the new firmware is direct file saving into the Mathworks MATLAB data analysis and visualisation environment, offering users quicker and easier import of measurement data. By supporting MATLAB’s .MAT file format on the ScopeCorder, the measurement results can be conveniently imported into MATLAB more speedily and with smaller file size. The .MAT file format on the ScopeCorder is compatible with Level 5 MAT-files, the latest file format from MATLAB.
Other new features include support of an external USB printer for printing on long rolls of paper, and a “sure delete” function for erasing data from the ScopeCorder’s hard disk drive.
