Tektronix Inc. has developed a 136-channel TLA7BC4 logic analyzer module for the Tektronix TLA7012 portable and TLA7016 benchtop series.

The TLA7012 portable and the TLA7016 benchtop analyzer, both considered mainframes, are modular instruments that accept logic analyzer and pattern generator modules. These extensible analyzers can support analysis of up to 6,528 channels with as many as 48 independent buses, letting you view data in waveform, listing, source code, or histogram displays. That makes cross-domain analysis very straightforward.

From Tek's press release, the latest TLA Application Software v5.0 can run on any Windows XP Professional or Windows 2000 platform.

The v5.0 software automates many measurement tasks that were previously accomplished manually. "With the sophistication, speed, and complexity of today's designs, it's important than ever to match fast hardware with software," emphasizes David Bennett, Tek's Logic Analyzer Product Line VP.

"Automatic measurement is similar to what's currently happening with digital storage oscilloscopes," adds Bennett. "In logic analyzers, this industry-first capability can show you what you need to debug designs using the newest buses, technologies, and standards."

With 20ps (50 GS/s) timing resolution and up 128Mb record length, the TLA7BC4 module is suitable for a range of state-of-the art embedded applications, including DDR3-1600 and MIPI as well as leading edge computer applications such as Intel's QuickPath Interconnect Technology.

TLA Application Software v5.0 is priced starting at $137,000. It is available by the end of 2008.
