Called ScanaQuad, the devices are 50x50mm in size and operate with the firm’s Scana Studio software running on a host Windows PC, Linux PC or Mac.
“The software lets you modify existing protocol scripts or write your own proprietary decoder,” said the firm. “This can be done via an integrated IDE using Java scripts, which allows you to extend the features of the existing protocols library, or build your own.”
Triggering is hardware-based and, except for the most basic model (see table below), it can range from a simple logic edge, or a combination of logic levels, edges, pulse widths, timing constraints .
All four logic inputs can also be switched to outputs.
To synchronise ScanaQuad with external trigger sources, or provide triggers to other devices, there is an add-on called TrigBox.
It syncs with ScanaQuad via the 5th pin of the USB connector and a 5th wire in the cable. Inside there is hardware to provide deterministic propagation delays and a 50Ω output drive.
With TrigBox, “you can use the ScanaQuad to trigger an oscilloscope on a specific protocol feature,” said IkaLogic. “Alternatively, you can use trigger in feature of TrigBox to let ScanaQuad start capturing signals according to another instrument in your lab.”
