Saelig Presents IkaLogic SP2 Logic Analyzers That Offer Protocol Decoding Resolution of 200 MHz

Press Release Summary:

The IkaLogic SP2 Logic Analyzers consist of SP209 (standard) and SP209i (industrial) versions and feature Trigger-in and Trigger-out SMA connectors. The devices come with ScanaStudio software to capture, display, analyze, and decode signals. The units are offered in nine channel design with adjustable thresholds (1.8V, 2.5V, 3.3V, 5V). The devices compress and stream captured signals through USB 2.0 that is attached to computer. They come with 2 Gb memory that buffer the captured signals. The SP209i analyzer features specialized receivers for RS485, RS232 or CAN buses.

Saelig Introduces Innovative IkaLogic SP2 Logic Analyzers

Ultra-compact, portable debug tool offers large databuffer, built-in bus receivers for serial decoding

Fairport, NY, USA: Saelig Company, Inc. has introduced the Ikalogic SP2 Series of compact 9-channel 200MHz Logic Analyzers, which offer in-depth analysis of logic signals and protocol decoding with 200MHz (5ns) timing resolution. The nine channel design allows 8-bit parallel data to be captured along with a clock or strobe signal at the maximum sampling rate without any trade-off between the number of active channels and the sampling rate. This is possible due to an embedded 2Gb memory that buffers the captured signals before sending to the attached PC. Powerful trigger options are provided, including: edge trigger, logic change on one or various channels, trigger on timed logic signals sequence, trigger on protocol word or event (e.g. serial word or I2C address acknowledge), external trigger input, etc.

The SP2 series makes it easy to analyze CMOS logic signals and industrial buses. The series consists of two devices: the SP209 is the standard edition and the SP209i is an industrial version with specialized receivers for most common industrial busses like RS485, RS232 or CAN. The Trigger-in and Trigger-out SMA connectors allow users to synchronize the SP209 to other lab equipment, building highly sophisticated test setups. The Spartan 6 FPGA design provides the processing power required and can easily be firmware-updated.

The SP2 series logic analyzers use the supplied ScanaStudio software (Windows, Mac and Linux) to capture, display, analyze, and decode signals. Most industry standard protocols can be decoded, including: SPI, I2C, USART, 1-Wire, CAN, LIN, I2C, RS232, RS485, TWI and more. The software allows users to capture very long sequences of logic signals (up to 2 Tera samples), or view decoded signals in various levels of abstraction (packets or detailed bits and bytes). It also enables targeting very specific events due to the versatile multi-stage trigger system. The SP2 series logic analyzers compress and stream captured signals via USB 2.0 to an attached Windows, Linux or MacOS computer. USB bandwidth can be variable from system to system, with a practical limitation of 20MB/s. SP2 logic analyzers have an embedded 2Gb DDR-3 memory which buffers captured samples at 1.6GB/s to avoid these USB limitations.


  • 9 logic-level channels with adjustable thresholds (1.8V, 2.5V, 3.3V, 5V)
  • State of the art input stage, with Schmitt triggers that eliminate glitches on slow signals
  • 200 MHz sampling rate, with all 9 channels used.
  • External clock option (state mode), up to 50MHz
  • Precise Trigger-in and Trigger-out signals on SMA ports
  • Sample compression, streaming via USB.
  • 2Gb DDR-3 memory
  • Embedded receivers on industrial version: SP209i (RS232, CAN, LIN, RS485).

The SP209 series of logic analyzers are well-suited to applications such as embedded systems development and debugging, R&D, education, protocol analysis, reverse engineering, etc. Made by Ikalogic, a growing European embedded test equipment manufacturer, the IkaScope SP2 Logic Analyzers are available now from Saelig Company, Inc. Fairport, NY. For detailed specifications, free technical assistance, or additional information, please contact Saelig at 1-888-7SAELIG, via email:, or visit
