Hello, I'm measuring a simple CR, high pass filter: 10nF, 10kOhms (nominal, actual: 10.15nF & 9.94kOhms). The M2k has been warmed up for hours and was calibrated post warming with W1 decoupled. The Network Analyzer plots Scopy puts up has the Phase plot horizontal (frequency) axis a little longer than the Magnitude plot. Place a cursor at the lowest frequency and they read the same. Place a cursor at the highest frequency and there is a nearly 3kHz discrepancy between them on the two plots (see cursor 1 & 2 in NA issue Fig. 1. JPG). Place a cursor at the -3dB frequency on the Mag. plot (comes at~1.61 kHz), should be at 45.0 deg. on the Phase plot, but the cursor on the phase plot is at 1.50kHz and not at 45 deg. (see cursor 1 in NA issue Fig. 2). OK so it looks like maybe just an annoying offset. So where is 45 deg. on the phase plot, its at 1.57kHz (not 1.61kHz). OK, but maybe too large a scale to expect an accurate measurement. So I scanned 1000 samples from 1500kHz-1700kHz, exported and plotted the Mag. & Phase versus frequency taking best line fits to each curve to get what's shown in NA issue Fig. 3). The discrepancy between the f3dB and 45 degree frequencies is even greater. So my questions are: 1) why different frequency scales for the Mag. and Phase plots; 2) why the apparent off-set in the cursor on the two plots and 3) am I asking too much of these little units to expect better agreement between the f3dB and the 45 deg. Phase frequencies? Please let me know if you need further information and thank you.
We're sorry for the late response.
Indeed, these seem to be valid software issues on the Scopy side.

Hi folks, it's been a week. Is someone looking into this? I realize it may take some time for a detailed look, but it would be reassuring to know that a response is to come. Thank you.
Post the issue there, under the required format and our software team will have a look.
Thank you, I've done as you suggested. While I have you, where is the right place to get support for an apparent hardware issue with the ADALM2000?
