TEMECULA, Calif. - CWAV, a Southern California-based electronics
company, announced today the addition of the USBee DX Test Pod (DX) to its product family of PC based test pods that verify analog voltage
levels and digital logic used in electronics. The DX builds on CWAV's
award-winning USBee AX Pro Test Pod and offers 2 analog and 16 digital
channels, click and drag instant decode of embedded bus transactions
(including I2C, SPI, ASYNC, CAN, USB low and full speed, I2S, SM-Bus,
PS/2 and 1-Wire), digital voltmeter, data logger, digital signal
generator, pulse width modulator, frequency counter, frequency
generator, I2C Controller, and pulse counter. In addition, users are
able to create applications to control the DX with the USBee Toolbuilder
source code and library.
The DX offers engineers, students and home hobbyists a powerful and
portable way to test and debug electronic products and designs. "The DX
builds upon the AX Pro's success and offers additional features to help
engineers test and control electronic circuit designs quicker." says Tim
Harvey, principal of CWAV. "Decoding the data from many of the common embedded busses eliminates the time consuming task of counting bits and lets users debug their designs instead of reverse engineering bus protocols."
The DX is a compact device (exact size: 2.25" x 1.5" x .75") that
attaches to a PC using a USB cable. Depending on the PC application
used, the DX becomes a collection of various electronics test tools. The
Oscilloscope/Logic Analyzer has 2 analog and 16 digital signals sampling
100 million samples at up to 24Msps and dual 8-bit ADCs for the /-10v
inputs. Users can also Click-and-Drag to instantly decode embedded bus
transactions (I2C, SPI, ASYNC, CAN, USB low and full speed, I2S, SM Bus, 1-Wire and PS/2).
Additionally, the DX includes a 2 channel, /-10V digital voltmeter, 16
digital and 2 analog channel data logger, 16 channel digital signal
generator, 16 channel pulse width modulator, 16 channel frequency
counter, frequency generator that generates sets of common frequencies, I2C Controller to control I2C devices using simple text scripts, remote controller to easily control your hardware using a PC, 16 channel pulse counter with gating control, and USBee Toolbuilder source code and library to create your own test tools.
The USBee DX Test Pod is priced at $1,495.00 and comes standard with all necessary cables, clips, leads, software, and accessories. The DX is
compatible with USBee Data Extractor, CWAV's new software bundle for
streaming and unlimited capture of USB, CAN, SYNC, SPI, I2C, I2S, SM
Bus, 1-Wire, Parallel, Serial, and PS/2 bus traffic. The Data Extractor
bundle is $1,995.00.
