This application will turn your STEMLab into an affordable Bode analyzer. It is the perfect tool for educators, students, makers, hobbyists and professionals seeking affordable, highly functional test and measurement equipment. The Bode analyzer is an ideal application for measuring frequency responses of the passive/active filters, complex impedances and any other electronic circuit. The Gain/Phase frequency response can be used to characterize any device under test completely, you can perform linear and logarithmic sweeps. Gain and Phase can be measured from 1Hz to 60MHz. The basic user interface enables quick interaction and parameter settings. The Bode analyzer can be used for the measurement of Stability of control circuits such as the DC/DC converters in power supplies, Influence of termination on amplifiers or filters, Ultrasonic and piezo electric systems and similar. All Red Pitaya applications are web-based and don’t require the installation of any native software. Users can access them via a browser using their smartphone, tablet or a PC running any popular operating system (MAC, Linux, Windows, Android and iOS).
The graphical user interface of the Bode analyzer application is shown below.
The graphical interface is divided into 5 areas:
1. Stop/Run button: It is used to start and stop measurement. Calibrate button: When the selected calibration of the setup is started.
2. Measurement settings panel: It is used for to set the measurement parameters such as the frequency range, scale, number of steps, excitation signal amplitude, excitation signal DC bias and averaging number.
3. Plot settings panel: It is used to set the Gain and Phase graph ranges as also manual or auto scale mode.
4. Gain graph: The Gain frequency response of the DUT (device under test) is plotted for the selected frequency range.
5. Phase graph: The Phase frequency response of the DUT (device under test) is plotted for the selected frequency range.
The main feature of the Bode analyzer application are described below:
