ProSpect v1.1.14 (2017-08-29)

ProSpect-1.1.14-setup.exe

Changelog

(Since 1.1.12)

  • QuickConfig now prohibits selection of devices with different interface types. Only microDXP supports different interfaces, but the Handel driver does not support both simultaneously in one system.
  • Improved statistics by computing resolution with background subtraction and successfully computing statistics for narrow peaks down to three bins.
  • Fixed switching channels stops the run.
  • Apply preset run settings to all channels.
  • Added gap time, preset run, and SCA sample code.

Known Issues

ProSpect does not yet support firmware loading and backups.

Previous Releases

ProSpect v1.1.12 (2017-05-18)

ProSpect-1.1.12-setup.exe

Changelog

  • QuickConfig now sorts detected USB2 devices by hub and port. This allows the detector channels to appear in a stable order corresponding to physical location. In this version the column headers Bus and Slot correspond to USB Hub and Port, respectively.
  • Allow preset run times up to the firmware-supported limit. The previous limitation was 2147 seconds, but if the user entered a greater value, an a calculation error would truncate the length as low as 1552 seconds. Now the length is correctly limited to 2147 seconds; much longer times are allowed with supported firmware updates. To confirm extended preset run time support, check the Board Information window for DSP code major version 4, minor version 49 or greater.
  • Removed the preset type Preset Energy Livetime, as energy livetime is not implemented in most variants of the product.
  • Automatically reselect the Scope tab if it was selected while switching products.
  • If an error occurs on startup, a button is available to view the log.
  • Display the USB firmware version in Help | About.
  • Fixed DSP parameters display after resizing the window.
  • [Installer] Offer to download and install Windows 7 SHA-2 cryptography support if it's not already installed and device drivers are to be installed. This system update (released on Windows Update in 2015) is needed for driver verification.
