All-Platform, All-Brand, All-Age


No organization has a fleet of waveform-gathering platforms represented by a single brand.  M1™ is the only platform-agnostic, brand-agnostic, and age-agnostic solution available.

  • It supports any instrument type
  • M1 even supports more models than the manufacturer's own software supports in most cases, because we continue to support them long after the manufacturer has stopped:

M1 doesn't care what platform a waveform comes from; we call this "hardware abstraction".


M1 works equally well with oscilloscopes, digitizers, and EDA tools


M1 works exactly the same regardless of platform manufacturer


Unlike the platform manufacturers, ASA never stops supporting an instrument

Critical Complementary Ideas

ASA's philosophy of hardware abstraction leads to a number of benefits

M1 Waveform Tools™:

  • Incorporates multiple major areas of functionality
  • Provides extraordinary flexibility
  • Makes M1 your ideal choice for constructing and operating multi-analysis or multi-platform/multi-vendor test stands
    • Including digitizer systems with up to 100 channels that are now equivalent in functionality to a bench scope

This flexibility is a direct result of M1 being written not to sell you a particular brand of hardware, but to accelerate real-word workflow that incorporates many different brands and types of hardware.


Service Life Extension

Decouple your software and hardware

Correlation by design

No 'sum-of-parts' philosophy

Training, procurement, and collaboration services

By this, we mean that the scope or digitizer has the bandwidth, sample rate, and memory depth that is needed for the desired measurement.

We learned this phrase from the platform companies. They used it in conjunction with other phrases like "customer sensitivity to minimum viable functionality". At ASA, we call this design philosophy "half screwed together". It's never acceptable at ASA to solve only part of the problem or try to guess what the customer won't notice before they buy it.
  • In fact we recently received an order to run in conjunction with that instrument
  • The manufacturer couldn't do this because they weren't even in the software business until almost a decade later
  • Every oscilloscope
  • Every digitizer
  • Every EDA simulation tool
regardless of brand, or how old it is.

In the unlikely event that your device isn't already supported, we have leveraged several decades of supporting all manner and all brands of scopes to produce a tool that rapidly determines what is required to support a new instrument quickly and with as little impact on you as possible.
