The TLS216 Logic Scope is designed to simplify the task of debugging digital hardware. The Logic Scope seamlessly combines in a single instrument the analog acquisition system of a high-speed digital storage oscilloscope (DSO) with the triggering and display systems of a logic analyzer. The 500 MHz bandwidth Logic Scope samples all channels simultaneously at 2 GS/s and has sophisticated time-qualified triggering, a high resolution color display and an integrated floppy disk drive.
Sophisticated Triggering to Identify Complex Digital Problems
In addition to edge trigger, most digital signals can be easily captured using pulse, glitch and pattern triggers. The Logic Scope provides two new trigger resources that allow the instrument to directly trigger on common digital circuit behavior. The industry's first time-interval or sequence trigger type monitors the time between two events, allowing the instrument to easily trigger on setup time violations, hold-time violations or unexpected propagation delay. The powerful "Time-out" trigger type can be used to capture incomplete handshake sequences or to trigger the instrument when the DUT "hangs". All of these trigger types let developers identify channel-to-channel relationships, including 16-Bit patterns and time-related/time-qualified system faults. The Logic Scope's external trigger-input can be used as a "Trigger Arm" to enhance cross-triggering between two instruments, simplifying the task of using a Logic Scope with other test equipment.
