Hi Krzysztof (et all)

Seems incredibly sexy 😊

I will not try to influence your decision. I'm not a developer, but I have a rather precise idea of the amount of work such a project represents.



Did you put you source on github ? it could definitely help if some other guys want to fork/contribute



Thanks for your efforts. Results look promising

Marc

I guess there is no such group.



I have heard about, as I can recall, 2 attempts however none of them was complete. Mainly just gui and those approaches were more like direct liberty basic software translation. needles to say such thing was looking awkward.





Probably I'm the most advanced in writing from scratch Qt 4.x (4.8

exactly) based version of msa talking to Scotty's hardware with (I considered also word "through" - that's major contribution of my native

language) parallel port. Although gui is c++ all "backend" is utterly C, linux kernel like C in the opposite to various c-like things like misra and automotive zoo.



I want to create git project hosted somewhere anyway I'm not sure if it is ready enough.

Briefly described its features:

- support for 1G band by now, others I kept in mind so it shouldn't be difficult 



- diagnostic mode including cavity test (tested and compared to genuine msa), dds sweep test and (new) dds1 and 3 phase test



- spectrum analyzer,

- vna transmission, including group delay and graph autoscaling



- reflection is most interesting and not done yet.



if we look at various utilities then there are available filter analysis and crystal analysis.



I haven't completed L+Q (and C,R) measurement because my graph doesn't support log scale yet. Anyway this is of my interest too.



I reckon that I have all calibration done, which are: RBW, frequency, line for vna and frontend for just "sa" mode. Done and results

(verified) compared to genuine msa.



So still hesitate if I should release it or just complete a few things before creating the public project.





I also invented a wine shared library which glues "windows" lpt port to linux's ioctls to /dev/parport so it is possible to use genuine msa, liberty basic and wine together.

Once upon I posted this project to this group and someone even promised to leave a feedback but he never did.



Here is included an image of my msa showing results of one of McCoy filter tests I did once upon - verified with genuine msa of course.

there is nice tooltip help also, settings window, eclipse with source, terminal window showing run time debugging. 



enjoy and if e.g. you success in (with ?) convincing me then I will release it.





Thanks,

Jim, 
I tried to find the Yahoo group, but it does not show up when search. This could just be one of those Yahoo hiccups... Do you have a link to the group's page?

wow. I have seen just a picture of this memory. When I was just a

to push asm opcodes set on dip switches into 6116 located at proper

address window, run simple programs and observe results on some 573s ..

old times. never mind.

I designed class MSA_Graph_VP : public QWidget and captured

paintEvent() which uses 3 pixmaps: reference, data and markers

in QPainter::CompositionMode_SourceOver mode



1st qpixmap serves for grid, rather static text 

2nd for data graph

3rd for markers

I see. so let's see how it goes.



Tomorrow will create the repo, push the code and post repo's address.

Thanks. a result of quite long way and many improvements. Want to have

some ? 

Seriously, if you want exactly the same you may need to consider my in-

house developed modules which are unique: iclkm, pdm-adc with cap bank



iclkm stands for "integrated clock module"



pdm-adc-cap-bank is stacked construction of two boards connected

through 0.1" pins and for this connector there is rectangle hole in

bottom right corner of the chassis.







Another story is a pdm module. I finally ended up with a conclusion

that I should use smallest cpld to get what I want. Found Xilinx xc2c32

Two D flip flops (classic phase detector) approach were not enough

because measurement is not ordered. The resulting voltage can show

angle from A to B input or B to A and the switch tends to happen easily

if there is xor gate so more Ds are required for proper syncing

inverting signal and thus discrete Ds are "no go"





You can see on the pdm module test points to connect scope probes

measuring phase shift between output from 8306 and reference input

(mxr4).



I used dds1 and dds3 with 10.7M filters and my newly added "phase test"

to drive both inputs of combined pdm-log module with phase step of

11.25 deg.

going to set one tomorrow. It will support just a c/c++ source and a

few dataset examples I have collected so far, so even without real

hardware it will be possible to load the example and use features in

"emulation" mode.

I see. Splendid. I'm familiar (I used to be when younger) with 8051

too. 80537 especially.

Well, why should I support this from my pocket ?

If I see a chance to setup the idea behind this project such a way the

project will have ROI >0 then I will not hesitate but now I can't see

such opportunity.

possible. 

So you want to create a git repo for this purpose - don't you ?

or I missed something and can't read between lines.

You welcome.

I see.

yes. it is. You may want to see e.g. 



https://sourceforge.net/projects/tv16k7/



my another project I released once upon for fun - to see the World's

response. Only downloads and no single "thanks".

of course that depends on Qt version and there was significant change

between 3.x and 4.x. I haven't used 3.x

Hi,

1st choice looks good. How many of us want to contribute ?
