Export complex data of a trace with mathematics and time gating


I have a trace with mathematics and time gating. From this trace I need the complex data as real and imaginary values in a file. How can I export this on a USB stick?


  • Change the format of the trace to Smith.
  • Then select TRACE CONFIG - TRACE DATA - Export ASCII.
  • In the popup window select for Contents the Active Trace and switch on Formatted Values.
  • Select your USB stick and store the file. This file will have a table with the columns frequency, real and imaginary values.
