High Performance Digital Test Pod
Logic Analyzer & Signal Generator
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 an ASYNC, I2C and SPI Serial Bus Decoder. It is the ideal bench tool for engineers, hobbyists and students.
The USBee SX Digital Test Pod combines state of the art design with easy to use PC software to give you a complete digital test bench in a small and affordable package. Connecting to your PC, the USBee SX Digital Test Pod uses the power and speed of the USB 2.0 High-Speed bus to capture and control information from your own hardware designs.
Made for Embedded Developers
The USBee SX Digital Test Pod utilizes the USB High-Speed bus to turn an existing PC into a high powered Logic Analyzer and Signal Generator that can store enough samples to fill available PC memory. USBee SX users are now routinely storing over 200 million samples per Logic Analyzer or Signal Generator trace which allows visibility and control into an embedded design that was previously only available on dedicated test equipment costing tens of thousands of dollars. The USBee SX pod opens the door to a type of analysis and control that was not cost feasible before for many embedded developers.
Takes Advantage of PC resources
CWAV has designed the USBee SX system to take advantage of already existing PC resources. The USBee SX pod streams data over the High-Speed USB bus to and from the PC, allowing the PC to perform all of the triggering and data storing. This makes possible an affordable USBee SX, while pushing the sample storage capabilities orders of magnitudes beyond that of traditional dedicated logic analyzers and signal generators. The USBee SX Digital Test Pod can utilize available PC memory as the sample buffer, allowing selectable sample depths from one to many hundreds of millions of samples.
The USBee SX runs the following applications:
- USBee Suite
- Signal Generator
Supercharge your Debugging with USBee Suite on your USBee SXThe USBee Suite is powerful electronic signal analysis software for your USBee Test Pod that lets you solve your electronic problems quickly! It is the perfect compliment to the software applications included with your USBee.
Mixed Signal Logic Analyzer/OscilloscopeThe USBee Suite starts out as an easy to use Logic Analyzer and Oscilloscope for viewing the activity on all of the channels of your USBee.
Multibus Protocol AnalyzerYou can then decode the traffic on your embedded busses using the in-line protocol decoders. Some of the serial busses that are decoded include: I2C, SPI, Async, USB, CAN, 1-Wire, PS/2, SMBus, I2S, Sync Serial and even your own Custom Busses.
Best of all the USBee Suite Standard is FreeThe USBee Suite Standard is a free download and will run in Demo mode without a USBee, or on any USBee SX, USBee ZX, USBee AX-Standard, USBee AX-Plus, USBee AX-Pro, USBee DX or BusBee Test Pod. So take it for a spin. If it has been a while since you've used your USBee, pull it out of your pocket and experience the power of the USBee Suite.
The Signal Generator software provides the following functions:
- Tiny USBee Pod (2.1" x 1.3" x 0.5") connects to your hardware
- USB 2.0 High Speed connects the pod to your PC
- Signal Generator software runs on your PC
- Generate Sample Rates (1Msps to 24Msps)
- 8 channels
- Sample Buffer: 1 million up to the available PC RAM
- Output Sample Clock
- External Trigger Input
- Waveform display lets you "Draw" the signals you want (above)
- Save, Open and Print data and settings
- Movable cursors for easy measurements
- Can input files saved by the Logic Analyzer module to "playback" the capture
Perfect for Embedded System Debugging
The USBee SX Digital Test Pod can capture and generate samples up to a maximum of 24 million samples per second depending on the PC configuration. The USBee SX Auto-Calibration feature automatically reduces the sample rate to ensure accurate and reliable timing, even on systems with slower processor and USB bus speeds.The USBee SX Digital Test Pod perfectly merged features and functions to provide exactly the performance needed for hardware and microprocessor designs such as BASIC Stamp and PIC systems to ensure an affordable and compact unit.
The USBee SX Digital Test Pod does not need an external power supply. The USB bus supplies the power to the pod, so your PC will be supplying the power. The Pod does, however, require a self powered hub (not bus powered) if a hub is used between the PC and Pod.
