View Full Version : First screenshots of the Open Protocol Analyzer

10-13-2011, 03:19 AM
Here some screenshots on what's coming soon:

Use the Channel view to manage which protocol channels (SPI, RS232, I2C...) to analyze and configure settings

Use the Trigger view to configure simple- or arbitrarily complex triggers. Both Channel and Trigger configuration strings can be included in spin code.

Events are graphed on a timeline, available as a list, and you can click events to view more details.

Comes with adapters for standard protocols- but you can write your own to support anything. Uses ViewPort new "file download" feature to cache bursts of high speed events. Reconciles Prop's timestamp with PC's time to support long (days/week?) sessions with microsecond accuracy.
Any thoughts?

Looks excellent, Hanno

Years ago I had some serial<>ethernet converters whose software SerialIP had a similar timestamping feature. It was so useful I'd often connect serial devices via the ethernet (rather than rs232), just to be able to study the stream. Saved heaps of time.

Looks really good - it will be incredibly useful. Can't wait :-)

Very nice, Hanno!

Would it be possible to view the data packets in HEX, BIN, or DEC format?

Thanks for the encouragement! I've been working on this for a while- time to buckle down and finish it.
Yes, you'll be able to configure how to view the data- both in the user interface and programmatically with configuration strings.
