Waves: Introduction

 is an interactive, multi-row waveform viewer. Mine data by zooming in/out, collecting targeted statistics, moving signals around, and so much more. The type of data loaded determines how Waves draws it. Numerical data is drawn as spark lines. Signals with only two values that have a true/false connotation (e.g., up/down, enter/leave) are drawn as bit signals. Signals without one value repeated over and over are drawn as flags. String data is drawn as a digital string bus.
