Release 23.06

Release date: 30-Jun-2023

  • FW: Fixed a sporadic firmware issue causing "[error] Exception: TCP receive timeout" in the data server log followed by a disconnect during vector data transfer (e.g. QA results) from the device to the data server. (patch release)
  • AWG: Fixed a bug, which caused ksn_dsp_awg_vec_read - ERROR: Can’t read write-only ELF Data node messages in the firmware log.

Release 23.02

Release date: 28-Feb-2023

  • AWG: Fixed a bug in the AWG waveform playback for the auxiliary outputs using the SeqC command playAuxWave, where the voltage of the last sample was not held constant as specified.

Release 22.08

Release date: 31-Aug-2022

  • AWG: The ELF data node /DEV...​/AWGS/0/ELF/DATA accepts raw data as 8-, 16-, and 64-bit integer vectors in addition to 32-bit words.

Release 22.02

Release date: 28-Feb-2022

Release 21.08

Release date: 30-Aug-2021

  • AWG: Added support for variable arguments in the playZero() AWG instruction to improve performance of run-time delay sweeps
  • AWG: Increased update rate of /DEV...​/AWGS/0/ENABLE` node such that AWG state may be probed within 10 ms (previously >100 ms)
  • LabOne: Reduced CPU load caused by the LabOne discovery service in networks with many Zurich Instruments devices

Release 19.05

Release date: 12-Aug-2019

  • QAS: it’s now possible to bypass of the crosstalk suppression matrix to reduce the latency
  • QAS: the oscillator can now be directly output on Signal Outputs on Signal Output 1 (sine) and 2 (cosine) using controls in the Signal Outputs tab. Relative nodes are changed
  • QAS: discriminated qubit state can now be output on the Trigger Out connectors of the instrument
  • QAS: crosstalk suppression matrix can be edited in the LabOne UI
  • QAS: the deskew parameters can now be specified by the gain and phase imbalance of the mixer in the LabOne UI
  • AWG: Added getQAResult and waitQAResultTrigger instructions to read the result of the last qubit state discrimination
  • AWG: improved compilation speed and stability
  • AWG: the waveform viewer now supports waveforms up to 10 MSa length
  • AWG: the sequencer program memory has been restricted to the cache memory
  • LabOne: macOS support
  • LabOne: plots can be saved in PNG or JPEG format
  • LabOne: add context menus for plots, input fields and device connection dialog
  • LabOne API: waveform update using vectorWrite replaced by faster and more robust method setVector. Waveforms are now ordered according to the sequence in which they are defined in the sequence program, rather than alphabetically.
  • LabOne API: waveform update now uses integer format. It’s advised to use the helper functions convert_awg_waveform and parse_awg_waveform to convert to the new format.
  • Specifications: added performance diagram for Signal Output phase noise
