EasySYNC has introduced the ES-DLA-8/16, a multi-purpose PC-based analysis device, and part of the company’s USB Instruments product range. It combines logic analyser and protocol analyser functionality in a single compact, lightweight product. It features multi-channel operation, capture clock (external and internal), plus a broad range of triggering and data capture modes. As it is powered from a USB port, it avoids the need for an external power supply.
Measuring just 40mm x 10mm x 53mm, the ES-DLA-8/16 offers a choice of 8 or 16 data acquisition channels, a maximum sampling rate of 60 MHz run length encoding (RLE) or 4 bit raw and an external clock input. The triggering modes supported by it are rising edge, falling edge, high level and low level – allowing analysis flexibility to be increased. Furthermore a pre-trigger mode enables the position of the trigger in the acquired data to be set at 0%, 25%, 50%, 75% or 100% buffer. A maximum of 1 billion samples in total can be stored through the supplied EasyLogic software application . When operating as a protocol analyser, the ES-DLA-8/16 supports I2C, SPI, asynchronous serial (UART) and OneWire serial bus protocols.
“The ES-DLA-8/16, along with our latest Stingray oscilloscope/data logger/spectrum analyser, present the industry with a new breed of cost-effective analysis tools that are highly portable and simple to use,” states Susan Maxwell, General Manager at EasySYNC, “These instruments give engineers access to a breadth of test functionality without having to invest heavily in the purchasing of multiple pieces of equipment.”
The ES-DLA-8/16’s firmware is upgradeable via a USB interconnect to maximise convenience for future hardware updates. Logic analyser software, EasyLogic, for both Windows and MAC platforms is available and downloadable royalty free .
Certified drivers are available for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8, both 32-bit or 64-bit operating systems and Mac OS X 10.7~10.8. The instrument is offered in a sleek, attractive enclosure with rubberized mouldings for added ruggedness. Probes and a carrying bag are included too.
