Applications

Embedded design

Embedded designs have never been faster, more complex, and connected so their measurement technology must be on the same wavelength. Engineers need tools that can validate, test and design with speed and accuracy.

  • Power supply sequence and measurement
  • Serial protocol triggering and analysis for I2C, SPI, RS-232/422/485/UART, CAN, CAN FD, LIN, and SENT
  • Device characterization
  • Data sharing and remote collaboration
  • Control signal capture and analysis with 16 digital channels
