Hi all.  Has anyone tried to create frd and zma files based on ascii in smart live version 5.4 or 7 ?.

My quick bit of Googling suggests that Smaart's ASCII format (in v8, anyway) should be roughly compatible with FRD (not sure about ZMA). You may have to comment out (with an asterisk) or remove everything above the actual data in the file, and depending on the trace you're exporting you might also need to remove a column (I don't see any mention in for FRD about about a coherence column). You'll also need to change the file extension to FRD (of course).

ZMA is the impedance plot, so an entirely different measurement technique.

Yes, right.  Impedance plots are different in measurement techniques.
