TEMECULA, Calif., 1 Nov. 2006. CWAV of Temecula, Calif., is offering 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 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 helps engineers, students, and home hobbyists 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 buses 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.
