[AmpeRose] Computer interface design and functionalities

Hello everyone!
Today, as we conclude our second week of working on the AmpeRose, we would like to show you a rough view of the interface of the computer software that will be communicating with AmpeRose.

I’ve had the pleasure of helping in designing this interface, along with Abdelhadi, and this is the end result:

Note that the main focus was on the ergonomics and how to include the functionalities, rather than choosing nice shapes on so on. These aesthetic details are easily changeable and need not be determined this early in the development of the project.

Our interface will show a continuously updated graph of the current, and will boast an auto-adjusting scale.It will also show the maximum value for the current in the window, as well as the activation and disactivation instants of the GPIO pins.

On the left side, you can notice a few statistics values, as well as buttons to control the viewing mode (Trigger or Normal mode, FFT mode), and to control AmpeRose itself(Frequency, Start, Stop, etc…).

Moreover, the user has the possibility of reading live data from the Ethernet connection with AmpeRose, or data stored on its SD card.

And finally, the user will be able to change the names of the GPIO pins, from the edit tab. These pins, connected from the DUT to AmpeRose, will provide the user with the ability to customize the pin names when performing tests.

This interface may still be changed of course (hopefully to include more functionalities). We sincerely hope you liked the interface, and welcome any suggestions!
