Teledyne LeCroy debuts 100/10BASE-T Ethernet decode software

CHESTNUT RIDGE, N.Y., 9 March 2013. Teledyne LeCroy Corp. has released an Ethernet decode software option compatible with its oscilloscopes having bandwidths from 200 MHz to 65 GHz.

Users can decode 100BASE-T and 10BASE-T Ethernet signals to examine each frame within a given packet, assuring pre-compliance with IEEE standards. The Ethernet decode software also aids in debugging issues that are not easily solved with a protocol analyzer, such as interoperability issues, uncertain error causes, and physical-layer issues.

With more embedded designs incorporating Ethernet functionality, engineers need fast, reliable tools for debugging these intra-system communication links. The Ethernet decode software processes physical-layer waveform captures to display a color-coded overlay with easy-to-understand details on the stream’s data-link layer. Decoded link-layer information expands or contracts as the user adjusts the oscilloscope’s time base or zooms in on the waveform, displaying more data with close-in views or less when looking at the big picture.

Powerful search capabilities allow users to search the acquired waveform in a myriad of ways. For example, users can search for frame types, source/destination addresses, data strings, and other attributes. A user can locate source or destination addresses from one frame and search the waveform for other packets with matching addresses.

The search tool provides a list of the most common error conditions, such as missed start of frame, missed terminate frame, and more. Decoded data is displayed in an interactive table. Clicking on any line in the table opens a zoomed view of that instance in the waveform.

Ethernet decode software for Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscopes is priced at $1,250.

Evolution of the American soldier

The American soldier has come a long way since the beginning of the Republic 237 years ago. While uniforms for early soldiers were based on cost and utility, soldiers' clothing eventually considered ballistic protection, increasing storage space, protection from poison gas and other contaminants.
