Key facts

  • Universal decoding for 8b10b based buses 
  • Triggering and decoding of any Manchester and NRZ coded serial protocol
  • Protocol display as color-coded bus signals and in decode table
  • Powerful search and navigate capability
  • Multi-domain icon

Brief description

This software packages enables decoding of serial interfaces with 8b10b based protocols, as well as triggering and decoding of any Manchester and NRZ coded protocol, including Manchester violation detection. You can set up the protocol structure in seconds. For detailed analysis, results can be viewed as color-coded protocol elements in the waveform diagram and/or in a table. Errors are identified efficently and reliably.

Features & benefits

Fast configuration

Bus setup in seconds 

The configuration for any given protocol is accomplished in just a few steps starting from the app cockpit. Once the bus to decode has been chosen, the connected channels have been selected and the correct levels have been set, decoding begins automatically.

Color coded protocol display

Protocol elements as color coded bus signal

You can analyze the decoded bus frames with a color coded data overlay over the bus signal. Address and data content can be displayed in hex format. You always have the best overview with the flexible screen setup. Additionally, the telegrams can be displayed in a concise table.

Decoded protocol elements are color coded

Strong trigger capability

Trigger on start of frame, frame ID and data

The protocol-specific trigger lets you reliably isolate protocol events and errors. Thanks to high acquisition rates, Rohde & Schwarz oscilloscopes are ideal for finding errors quickly, allowing decoding of protocol-specific trigger results.

Search and navigate in recorded acquisitions

Powerful search and navigate capability

Comprehensive search functions simplify the analysis of long signal sequences. You can search for waveforms based on different criteria, such as signal faults or protocol content. All detected events are shown in a table with timestamps. The individual events can be examined in a zoom window with a simple navigation between events.
