All of the IO-3200s function as both a Logic Analyzer and a Pattern Generator. They communicate and are powered by USB.

The LA can sample at up to 400 MSa/s, and the PG can operate at up to 200 MSa/s. They feature a buffer that is up to 2 Mpt long. They have 32 channels of LA and up to 32 channels of PG.


 

PC-based Logic Analyzer and Pattern Generator

Overview


32 Channels

The IO-3200s have 32 Logic Analyzer input channels and up to 32 Pattern Generator output channels.

Logic Analzyer inputs

Logic Analyzer FrontPanel® software for Windows


Timing window

The timing window shows the data as waveforms with the X-axis representing time. Individual channels or groups of channels can be displayed in this view.

The software allows you to change channel order, size, position, and color.

Timing Window: Logic Analyzer software

 

Channel groups can be displayed in a numeric format or as a waveform.

LA data displayed as waveform

 

Individual pulse width and frequency information can be displayed also.

Pulse width and frequency

Statelist window

The statelist window displays the data in a numerical format with the Y-axis representing time. Individual channels or groups of channels can be displayed in this view. Data can be displayed in Binary, Hex, ASCII, Decimal or in user-defined decoding.

Statelist Window

SPI analyzer

SPI protocol data can be captured and displayed by the Logic Analyzer. It can be shown in a decoded format, as well as a waveform.

SPI decoding

I2C analyzer

The software translates and displays captured I2C commands. What makes this product superior to other I2C Monitors is that you are able to see all activity on the Clock and Data lines in Timing and Statelist display, not just the valid codes.

In addition to capturing I2C data, the Pattern Generator can be used to output I2C commands to stimulate your circuit.

The bidirectional channels of the IO-3200 allow you to capture the circuit response on the same pins.

I2C Monitor

Pulse measurements

Measurements include:
Pulse width, Minimum Pulse width, Maximum Pulse width, Frequency, Period, Duty cycle and Pulse count.

Logic Analyzer for windows


High speed operation (400 MSa/s / 200 MSa/s)

The internal clock "Timing mode" can sample at up to 400 MSa/s for accurate and detailed data capture.  The long data buffers allow you to record for extended periods of time while maintaining a fast sample rate.  

The max external clock "State mode" rate is 200 MHz.

The Pattern Generator uses the same clock source as the Logic Analyzer.


Deep data buffers (up to 2 M samples per channel)

Large data buffers allow you to maintain high sample rates while maintaining long recording times. They allow you to see the big picture and find that elusive bug.


Pattern generator

Each Pattern Generator channel is also a Logic Analyzer channel, that can switch back and forth between Input and Output mode during a single capture.

This allows you to stimulate your circuit and record the results on a single pin. It's kind of like your own mini bed-of-pins tester.

The powerful data generation wizards help you build Counters, Clocks, SPI and I2C Communication protocols, etc. The software also allows you to load your own data files.

Pattern Generator


USB communication and power

The IO-3200 Logic Analyzers connect to your desktop or laptop computer by USB.



Accessories

Wire harnesses:
One end of the wire harness plugs into the IO-3200, and the other has connectors for 8 channels and grounds. The wires can be connected directly to 0.025" posts on your test circuit or to our test clips.

Clips:
The double gripper is designed for hard-to-make test connections of varying sizes and shapes.

Nano-clips:
The optional Nano-clips allow you to connect to very small surface mount pins.


DLL Software library

If you wish to write your own software to drive the unit, you can buy our optional DLL library. The DLL was written in Visual C++ and includes a sample program that allows you to configure both the LA and PG channels, capture data and transfer it to the PC.


File save / export

  • Data can be exported in "CSV" format to programs like Mathcad, Excel, Word, etc.
  • You can paste screen images into your reports using programs like Word, Excel, image editors, etc.
  • Data can even be shared with other computers. You can capture data in the lab and view it in your office or e-mail it to other engineers at remote locations for analysis. You don't need to have our instrument connected to view a file..
