measure - Probe Measurement

Usage:

- command: measure <channel> [<signal>|<rail>] <range> [<reference>]
  [extractKey: <key>]
  [retry: <retryCount>]
  [ground: <ground>]

Argument

Description

channel

Measurement channel

signal

DDTPxx or RDTPxx probe for pin measurement

rail

Power Rail for currentDMM measurement

range

Acceptable range

reference

Reference voltage for impedance measurement (optional, default: 5V)

key

Key in which to store the measurement results (optional)

retryCount

Number of times to retry the test step (optional)

ground

Note

For the voltageDiff channel, 2 signal names must be provided, separated with a -. For example: DATP00-DATP01 for a differential measurement between DATP00 and DATP01.

The measure command supports the following channels:
