3.8.5. Saving Captured Signal Tap Data

When you save a data capture, the 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 you set Signal Tap analysis to Autorun Analysis, which starts the Signal Tap logic analyzer in a repetitive acquisition mode, the logic analyzer creates a separate entry in the Data Log to store the data captured each time the trigger occurs. This preservation allows you to review the captured data for each trigger event.

The default name for a log derives from the time stamp when the logic analyzer acquires 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.
