5.8.6. Saving Captured Data

When you save a data capture, Signal Tap Logic Analyzer stores this data in the active .stp file, and the Data Log adds the capture as a log entry under the current configuration.

When analysis is set to Auto-run mode, the Logic Analyzer creates a separate entry in the Data Log to store the data captured each time the trigger occurred. This allows you to review the captured data for each trigger event.

The default name for a log is based time stamp when the Logic Analyzer acquired the data. As a best practice, rename the data log with a more meaningful name.

The organization of logs is hierarchical; the Logic Analyzer groups similar logs of captured data in trigger sets.
