Scopy is a multi-functional software toolset with strong capabilities for signal analysis.
Scopy for Windows

Once you downloaded the installer, run it and follow all the required steps. After completion, system reboot is required.
Before downloading and extracting the scopy_v1.0-linux.zip archive, you need to setup Flatpak using this setup guide for your Linux distribution.
For Ubuntu, you can use the following steps:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alexlarsson/flatpak sudo apt update sudo apt install flatpak flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
After this, get the Scopy.flatpak file from the downloaded archive and run:
flatpak install Scopy.flatpak
Double click the downloaded .dmg to make its content available. “Scopy” will show up in the Finder sidebar and a window showing the content should open up.
Drag the application from the .dmg window into Applications to install and wait for the process to finish.
Run Scopy from the Desktop Shortcut / Start Menu / Installation Folder.
On Linux, you can also run it using:
flatpak run org.adi.Scopy
The Home view is divided into four sections:
If a compatible USB device is available it will be displayed in the Devices section.
To connect to that device click on the device and then click the Connect button in the Information Window.
If the connection was established, the device will have a green status line under it and you will be able to disconnect from it in the same Information Window.
To connect to a remote device click on the Plus icon. Enter the IP of the remote device into the Hostname field and click the Connect button. If a device can be detected at the IP you provided, the Connect button will change to an Add button and you can click on it to add the remote device to the list of detected devices.
Clicking the Forget Device button will remove the device from the list. Clicking the Identify button will make the device blink.
The save/load buttons can be used to save the current session or load another session. The preferences button will open the preferences for Scopy where different options for different tools can be modified.
Clicking the Reset Scopy button will reset the application to a default configuration.
Checking the user notes preference will enable a tool where the user can add different pages with html formatted text
Scopy interacts with only one hardware device at a time. Once a device is selected to be used with the application, a list of instruments that are available for that device will be enabled. Each instrument can be opened from the left menu. The icon on the right of the instrument name specifies that the instrument is enabled and provides a shortcut that allows an instrument to be turned on or off.
The instruments menu can be minimized by clicking on the Scopy button near the top-left window.
Scopy provides the detaching into multiple windows feature for each instrument available, providing a better view/manipulation.
