New logic analysis modules for the complex digital world

29 January 2003 Test & Measurement

The digital designer of today is facing new challenges. Changing bus architectures, changing clocking schemes, complex packet structures, higher speeds, shrinking timing margins, small amplitudes and differential signals, increasing DDR memory speeds. They face new technologies like PCI Express, RapidIO, HyperTransport and processor busses with highly encoded data, complex protocols and higher speeds.

Designers are moving into a new world with new problems that require new tools for effective and productive debugging and troubleshooting. Thus, Agilent has introduced four new logic analyser modules for its 16700 Series logic analysers. The 16753A, 16754A, 16755A and the 16756A measurement modules can asssist engineers with the debug and validation of their leading edge high speed digital designs with greater confidence and in less time.

Key features: state analysis up to 600 MHz on all channels; varying memory depths available, from 1 M to 64 M; 4 GHz 'timing zoom' (simultaneous timing analysis on all channels) with 64 K memory depth; 1,2 GHz, 128 M deep memory timing analysis; 'eye scan' feature; low-capacitance, high reliability and density probing; 68 channels per module, and up to 340 channels by combining modules.
