TrigBox is coming very soon - discover some picture and exclusive information about it!
For the past few years, we've seen - from time to time - users adding something like a million marker to a ScanaStudio workspace. Why would someone do that? If you have ever tried to invent your own custom protocol (or work with a proprietary communication protocol) you'll most probably see why. If not, well, it's quite simple: To debug your custom protocol, you have to calculate the "meaning" of transmitted data at the very low level of "bits". Just like the old days, grabbing a piece of paper and aligning zeros and ones. In that situation, markers may helps you to separate bits.
Some time ago, we have decided to break with the past, and raise the quality of our products to higher standards. This came at a time when ScanaPlus-x (the successor of ScanaPLUS) was almost ready for production. In this blog post, I'll be explaining some of the technical details that made us reconsider the launch of the product.
