BitScope Meter | Release Notes (Older Version)
This page contains release notes for the old production versions of BitScope Meter.
This application provides:
Older versions may be downloaded from this page and may be useful if you have an older model BitScope.
For all BitScopes we recommend the current version instead but if you find the current version does not support a feature of your older BitScope or if you're happy with this older production software feel free to continue to use it. Software on this page is no longer in active development. If you have problems please use the current version.
Meter Production Releases
Meter 1.2 is not compatible with BitScope Pocket Analyzer
Please download and use this version for this model.
BitScope Meter 1.2 | Online Update | CB28B
This is a downloadable update of BitScope Meter for existing BitScope owners. It fixes several reported bugs. An update will be made available soon for the recent editions of Pocket Analyzer.
BitScope Meter 1.2 | CD-ROM Update | BD22B
Adds support for new model firmware revisions in BS12x and BS32x series.
BitScope Meter 1.2 | CD-ROM Update | AK15A
Adds support for BS044202 firmware upgrades.
Meter 1.2 | Multi-Channel Release | BA28A
This release adds support for logic channel capture and the new BitScope Chart application.
It reworks the main menu, adds support for capture on all analog inputs (i.e. BNC & POD inputs at the same time) and introduces capture on logic channels for multi-channel frequency meter applications.
New menus include Input for selection of voltage ranges and probe scaling, Channels to select which channels are active and available for measurement, Display to control how the waveform data is to be displayed and Capture which controls how the data is processed.
Other behind the scenes improvements have also been made including support for analog prescalers (on BitScope models that include them) and more control over how quickly voltages and frequencies are captured.
This version is also integrated into BitScope Chart (i.e. if you use Chart, Meter is included as one of Chart's display modes). However you can still use this stand-alone version of Meter and this is preferred if you plan to view waveforms at high refresh rates and/or without data logging.
Meter 1.0 | maintenance update | AF22A
This update fixes a few bugs when used with older model BitScopes.
Meter 1.0 | maintenance update | AB19B
This update fixes a bug which prevented communication with older serial BitScope models and also some very recent models. The installer for windows has also been updated to fix uninstall.
Meter 1.0 | Initial Production Release
Originally conceived as a replacement for an AC/DC voltmeter, Meter has since evolved into a powerful waveform analysis system.
The primary design goal for Meter was ease of use in practical measurement situations. Most operations are automatic, simply connect the signal and read the results.
Meter is cross-platform and available for Windows 7, Vista, XP, and most popular Linux distributions including Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, RedHat, SuSe and Mandrake.
It is theme aware so its appearance depends on your operating system but its operation is the same on all systems. An update supporting Mac OSX is coming (check development page for news).
