Every Logic device can be customized to capture data the way you want. You can select how long to record, specify how bandwidth is allocated between digital and analog
recording, select which channels to record, and even make the LED your favorite color
To record your digital and analog signals, just press start. You can fill your entire computer's memory with data so it is easy to capture lengthy or rare events.
When you have billions of data points to display, it is important that getting around in all that data is a zippy experience. Effortlessly zoom in and out with the scroll wheel, and navigate left and right by dragging the data where you want it.
For basic measurements, just place your mouse near something interesting. The software will figure out the rest and display the relevant measurements. You can show different measurements by right-clicking.
Trigger & Find
The software can start recording automatically when it finds a simple pattern you specify. You can trigger on digital edges and pulses as well as analog voltages and pulses. After you collect your data, you can search for more events this way too.
SPI,I2C & more
Most digital communication uses a particular protocol that specifies how information is transferred. The Logic software has protocol analyzers that can automatically decode
SPI, I2C, serial, 1-Wire, CAN, UNI/O, I2S/PCM, MP Mode, Manchester, Modbus, DMX-512, Parallel, JTAG, LIN,
Atmel SWI, MDIO, SWD, LCD HD44780, BiSS C, HDLC, HDMI CEC, PS/2, USB 1.1, Midi
Saleae Logic: Logic Analysers
"Debug hardware like the pros with the logic analyzer you'll love"
Logic analyzers are great for debugging embedded
applications. In the most common case, a
developer working on firmware for a
microcontroller will write code to communicate
with another component, possibly using protocols
like serial, I2C, or SPI. To verify the functionality or
to diagnose errors in the firmware, a logic analyzer
is connected to the digital IO used for
communication and records the activity during
testing. The recording is then shown on the display
so the user can view the actual behavior of the
firmware, and compare that with the expected
behavior to narrow down and identity the source
of the issue-or verify that the operation is
The Saleae Logic Pro 16 USB Logic Analyzer is a 16
channel logic analyzer with each input dual
purposed for analog data recording. The device
connects to a PC over USB and uses the Saleae
Logic Software to record and view digital and
analog signals. In addition, Logic currently has 24 different protocol analyzers including serial, I2C, SPI, CAN and many more.
Logic pro16, the high end model can sample 2 channels at 100MHz, 4 channels at 50MHz, 8 channels at 25MHz or all 16 channels at 12.5MHz and can record up to 10 billion samples.
Logic accepts voltages from -.5V to 5.25V, and has standard CMOS thresholds of .8V for logic low, 2.0V for logic high. Input impedance is approximately 1M ohms paralleled by 10pF.
