If you’re an engineer debugging a micro controller project, a hobbyist struggling with an I2C sensor, or an automobile expert trying to analyze CAN bus data frames, ScanaQuad is the product your need.
Made for software engineers with sufficient performance, optimized for use with development boards like Raspberry PI and a user interface that feels familiar for software developers. That's the new SmartScope from Labnation.
A small USB-powered instrument with oscillscope, logic analyzer and signal generator that is connected to the smart phone, tablet, or computer, and costs around 200€.
"We saw the need for three years ago, software developers know what they want to see, but do not know how to use an oscilloscope, says Riemer Grootjans as technology manager at Belgian Labnation."
Review Part 3
We’ve now come to the stage where we connect the device and start using it in earnest. The PC version of the software was tried out first, and it took a while to get used to it.
To start with, we regularly found ourselves looking up instructions from the Help, or tried to discover where a particular function was. It will take some time before you’ll be able to operate the software like a pro. However, with the tablet versions things progressed much more quickly. You’ll soon find out that the program was developed for use with a touchscreen. In this case, it took only several minutes to find out how to operate it, and it was also much easier to try things out.
Review Part 2
Second part of the SmartScope review. Missed part 1?
How about the Soft(ware) stuff?
One of the most important goals that the developers had in mind was that the software should run under almost any operating system, with an identical user interface. This is something they’ve certainly accomplished. As far as we know, this is the only scope that works on virtually all operating systems:
- Windows 7/8
- OS X
- Android 4.0+
When no Logic device is connected, the software will work in a demo mode - which is virtually identical to how it will function when a device is connected. This way you can become familiar with the software before your Logic device arrives.
Watch this short tutorial video and learn how to setup the USBee SX test pod to trigger on data patterns.
The USBee SX Test Pod is a HUGE sample buffer PC and USB based multifunction logic analyzer and digital signal generator in a single compact and easy to use device and includes a powerful bus decoder that shows ASYNC, I2C, SPI, 1-Wire, USB, CAN, I2S, SMBus, Sync Serial, PS/2 and even your own Custom Serial Bus data. It is the ideal bench tool for engineers, hobbyists and students.
As USB devices continue to grow in number and complexity, developers need their monitoring and analysis tools to keep pace. The Beagle USB 480 Power Protocol Analyzer enables your competitive edge with its unique, powerful features and a price that is a fraction of competing equipment.
The Beagle USB 480 Power Protocol Analyzer – Ultimate Edition enables VBUS current and voltage measurement within our industry-leading Data Center software.
The enhanced USB 2.0 advanced triggering, extra-large hardware buffer, and one-click correlation of voltage and current measurement to protocol-level activity ensures that engineers can take advantage of our unique real-time data analysis and display, enabling them to easily debug the functionality of their embedded systems while also optimizing the power profile of their applications.
Watch this step-by-step demonstration and learn how to set a multi-state USB 2.0 complex match and trigger an external output with the Beagle USB 5000 v2 SuperSpeed Protocol Analyzer.
This presentation shows the benefits of using a SPI - and other serial protocol - interface from PC to access, test and debug digital embedded systems such as digital ICs. It presents Byte Paradigm's SPI Storm host adapter.
