The Capture Window shows, in real time, the data SigmaStudio is sending to the hardware. This includes data sent during compile/link/download, register read/write operations, and changes to schematic block controls. The following example provides an explanation of the data displayed in the capture window.
Output Capture Example :
Display the Capture Window by selecting View - Capture Window in the application's main menu or by clicking the button on the Standard Toolbar.
Cell Name - Same name as appears on the visual block in the SigmaStudio schematic tab.
Parameter Name - Describes the algorithm, IC type, number of inputs, and for this example the filter coefficient.
Parameter Address - The address where data are being sent.
Parameter Value - The decimal equivalent value for filter coefficient.
Parameter Data - 4-byte hex representation of the filter coefficient. The DSP takes data in 5.23 format, 5 bits to the left of the decimal point and 23 bits to the right. The hex values listed here are the 4 bytes necessary to store the 28 bits. Only 28 bits of the 32 available are used, so the 4 most significant bits of the first hex value are sign-extended from the 4th bit.
