*SPI Electrical Validation and Protocol Decode Software ▼
Engineers, designing and testing SPI hardware and firmware, need to measure electrical parameters and monitor protocol of SPI interface to ensure inter-operability. Engineers, test and debug their designs with easy-to-use instruments such as oscilloscopes to capture the electrical signals but use time-consuming and error prone tools to make electrical measurements and protocol analysis. Often, they need a single tool or instrument to cross-examine the protocol layer and the PHY layer to debug the designs to reduce development and testing cycles.
The PGY-SPI Electrical measurements and Protocol Decode Software offers electrical measurements and protocol decoding for SPI bus. This software provides the flexibility to set reference levels for electrical measurement and customised limits makes it most versatile solution to meet different needs of characterising SPI Signals. Now design and test engineers can automatically make accurate and reliable electrical measurements and decode protocols in PGY-SPI software using data acquired by Tektronix DPO5000, TDS7000, DPO/DSA/MSO7000 oscilloscope series to reduce the development and test cycle.
