Logic Analyzer

Logic Analyser

Logic Displays:

The Logic Pod turns the MPAX into a full-featured logic analyzer, with the depth, ease-of-use, symbolic decoding, and statistics that are needed by software and systems testers. It also maintains the features needed by hardware engineers such as multi-level triggering, filtering, state configuration, and timing analysis. The State display provides event-level access details for those needing to monitor software, device drivers, or firmware. Signals can be grouped and decoded as Binary, Hex, ASCII, Decimal, Signed Decimal, or Symbolically. Once groups are created and display format chosen, trigger and filter terms can be created at a high level. Every one of the analyzers 108 channels can be used as a clock or qualifier. For hardware engineers, the Timing Waveform display provides for analysis of Logic signal activity.

Logic Capturing:

The Logic analyzer provides 2 predefined capture
  1. Timing Mode
  2. State Mode

Custom State Modes can also be created.

Logic Analyzer Capture Configuration


Logic Triggering:

The user can create and save custom triggers including
operations like:

  • Trigger if Two Events are too close in time
  • Trigger if Two events are too far apart in time
  • Trigger on the 10,000th occurance of Event X or Y
  • Trigger on sequence of up to 10 events

Logic Analyzer Trace Filtering:

The Logic Analyzer provides commonly used high-level filter
configurations. Some of the high-level filters provide
drop-down boxes for configuration options. The user can also
create and save custom filters.

Logic Filtering

Logic Statistics:

The Real-Time Monitor can be easily configured by the user
for almost any type of Statistical or Bit Error Rate
measurement desired.

Logic Analyzer supports Statistical Analysis & Bit Error Rate (BERT)


    • 250MHz (4ns) resolution

MultiBus is a Protocol Analyzer capable of taking multiple traces from different types of busses at the same time using the same reference clock. This product provides a new class of analysis tools for design, verification, and field engineers who work with networking, sub-systems, SAN, NAS, complex systems, and other multiple communication bus applications.





The analyzer allows for examining captured data at the Command, State, and Signal levels. The different display formats can be individually displayed or simultaneously displayed. When displayed simultaneously, each display can be automatically synchronized with the others, or used independently. A histogram provides a graphical summary of trace activity for the entire trace and makes it easy to point and click to any position within the trace.

The MPAX's Capture Engine pushes protocol recording to new limits with the following features: Transitional Timestamping, Bandwidth-4.5 Gbytes/sec, Depth-Stores up to 4 Gbytes, Segmentable Trace Buffer     More Information 

Custom Capture States

Triggering is used to stop the trace when a specific event or sequence of events occurs. The analyzer also provides for stopping when the buffer is full, or looping endlessly until the user manually stops the trace. High-Level triggering options are provided for each bus. The user can also create custom triggers using the powerful Trigger Sequencer. More Information

Custom Triggering

Pre-configured filters for each bus allow the user to conserve buffer space and reduce the stored data to those items that are of interest. Custom filters can also be created. More Information

Custom Filters

Dedicated hardware is provided for counting events. Software processes this data providing simple totals, or ratios of events per time or per other events, such as Transfers per Second, Transfers per Command, Errors per Second, or Data Transfers per Error.  These ratios are shown as Current Values, Average Values, and Peak Values, providing a summary of the changes over time.

The analyzer decodes many of the high-level protocols that are transmitted on each bus. The Command listing is typically used for displaying high-level protocols which may be transferred across a bus, while the State Listing typically displays native, low-level protocols.
