How to view the stepped value for each waveform?

Posted by admin 08/11/2015 0 Comment(s) FAQs,

After a stepping operation, multiple waveforms will be available on the screen. If the mouse tracker is enabled, a display will appear next to the mouse cursor that shows the X and Y values that the mouse is currently pointing at along with the stepped values of the parameters that were used to create the closest waveform. Simply place the mouse cursor over the waveform whose stepped parameters you want to view, and the values of those parameters will come up in the tracker. The mouse tracker can be enabled in the Trackers section of the Scope menu.

Another way to view which waveform belongs to which step is to invoke Cursor mode. This can be done by choosing Cursor, under the Mode selection of the Options menu or by pressing the F8 hotkey. The title of the plot will appear with the stepped parameter value of the waveform that the cursor is currently on. The title, when only stepping one parameter, will look similar to this:

PRLC.CIR Temperature=27 R1=50

where the cursor is currently on the waveform produced when R1 was 50 ohms. To shift the cursor to the other steps, press the Up or Down Arrow cursor key.

You can also have Micro-Cap automatically label each waveform branch of the analysis with text. This is done by going to the Scope menu and choosing Label Branches. A text string describing the stepped values of the brach will be placed next to each branch. This is useful for branches that have some space between each other.
