When creating a new project file, you must select the proper analyzer model and preferred sampling mode. For this reason, the software will provide a selection window with information regarding any detected hardware as shown below. Simply select the Model and the Sampling Mode, then click on the "OK" button to create the new project. If you do not want to create a new project, then select cancel to continue with the currently loaded project.

B. Select the Name and Location

After selecting "OK", a system folder window will open for you to enter a new name and location. After making your selections, the project is created and opened.

 

 

C. Define the Signals

A new project always adds a default BUS signal with all available channels assigned to it. At this point, you could press the Preview Button and instantly capture data as a single BUS. To see the individual channels of the BUS, expand it by clicking the expand button beside its name in the Waveform Window.

 

for Details see: Capturing Data and Waveform Views

 

To select a specific signal type and associate physical channels to a signal, see Defining Signals.

 

 

You will want to configure additional features as you capture and analyze the data such as Configuring a Hardware Trigger, Defining a Search or selecting specific measurements.
