ADALM1000 Pixelpulse feature Source Voltage / Measure Current explanation

Category: Software

Hi. Using Pixelpulse on my ADALM M1K I have a question regarding the Source Voltage / Measure Current feature available on channel A and B.

Imagine I insert a simple 10k resistor between CH-A OUT and ground and set the software to Source V / Measure I.

I then now select a 5V sinusoidal output. The CH-A Voltage graph shows the voltage Sinewave. Shouldn't be that also in the CH-A Current waveform in yellow a sinusoidal current waveform should appear scaled by ohm's law.

I have instead a straight yellow line on 0 Amp.

Same if I connect CH-A output to Ain connector.

Same straight line.

Am I missing something or do I totally misunderstood the SMU feature?

I do not want to use CH-B as a Measure feature.

Best regards and thanks
