UART, I2C/SPI/SM, CAN/LIN/Flexray: Tips & Tricks for Serial bus Protocol Analysis & Physical layer Troubleshooting using MSOs Webinar
Broadcast on: 17/11/2009 [11:00 am - 12:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time (GMT -04:00, New York)]
Serial data buses have become increasingly common, core components of most electronic designs. As a design or test engineer, you presently need to use a protocol analyzer, logic analyzer, digital oscilloscope, or a combination of all three in order to debug serial bus signals. However, none of these instruments by themselves give you a complete picture of the physical and protocol layers-until now.
Mixed signal oscilloscopes with serial bus analysis capability are ideal for monitoring bus traffic, detecting anomalies, and pinpointing their causes (i.e. too much noise, skew between signals, low signal levels, slow rise times, etc.) Armed with detailed waveform and protocol information captured and analyzed by the oscilloscope, you can easily witness signal behavior on the bus, monitor time correlated interactions, and quickly correct problems.
This online seminar will:
- Identify major causes of serial data bus problems.
- Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using different types of test equipment for testing serial data buses.
- Discuss the use and capabilities of mixed signal oscilloscopes for triggering on specific bus events and analyzing serial bus data.
- Demonstrate examples of serial data bus trigger, search, decode, and analysis
