Teledyne LeCroy has launched a protocol analyzer with state-of-the-art wideband software defined radio technology, when combined with the latest Wireless Protocol Suite, offers an unparalleled combination of portability, configurability and deep protocol analysis.
With the growing use of wireless technologies in the Internet-of-things (IoT) market, the roll-out of Mesh networks and location based services and the adoption of advanced audio codecs, design and test engineers need a flexible protocol analyzer to validate and troubleshoot complex product designs prior to, and after market introduction. Frequently, the wireless data must be correlated with many lines of wired digital data. The Frontline X240 with its flexible licensing supports the analysis of these wireless technologies alongside wired HCI UART and logic data.
The X240 protocol analyzer can be used with additional X240 units to improve wireless capture performance or synchronized with other protocol analyzers from Teledyne LeCroy using CrossSync™ functionality, to enable time‐aligned analysis of multiple protocol interfaces. Whether working in a lab, drive testing in an automobile, or working in the field the Frontline X240 comprehensively analyzes data communications to quickly validate design implementations, measure performance, look for potential errors in the protocol behavior to enable shorter than ever time-to-market.
"With more than four billion Bluetooth-enabled devices shipped annually, there is a growing need to fully test and validate the designs for interoperability and conformance. The ecosystem relies on test and measurement equipment to make this happen," said John Yi, CEO and Founder, Packetcraft, Inc.
"Not larger than the average paperback book, the Frontline X240 provides message sequence charts, packet error rate statistics, throughput graphs, packet timelines and other critical protocol information, all in a customizable windowing system. It is made for mobility and is configurable to target the precise wireless protocol engineers need to analyze," said Paul Russell, VP Wireless Products, Teledyne LeCroy.
