Original Press Release:
LeCroy Introduces New Line of Ultra Low-Cost USB 2.0 Analyzers
- USBMobile(TM) T2 combines CATC Trace display with advanced debug features
- Offers several flexible configurations starting at $799
SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 7 -- LeCroy Corporation, a worldwide leader for serial data test solutions, announced today the availability of a new low-cost USB 2.0 analyzer called the USBMobile(TM) T2. This PC card-based analyzer features the defacto standard CATC Trace(TM) hierarchical display and will be offered in three configurations starting at $799. Designed specifically to meet the needs of USB developers in the embedded system and software markets, this introduction makes lab quality analysis tools affordable for engineers at every level of USB design and test.
Starting at $799, the USBMobile PDQ provides a new paradigm in "application" level analysis. It captures device traffic and provides automatic application level decoding without the bits-and-bytes of the lower layers. The PDQ edition offers many of the same analysis and decoding displays as LeCroy's flagship USB analyzers, yet at a fraction of the cost.
"Many of our USB customers working in application and driver development do not require visibility of token level exchanges," said Michael Romm, Director of Product Development at LeCroy Protocol Division. "Driver developers are primarily focused on device specific commands or USB Request Block (URB) events. If lower layer analysis is required, the USBMobile PDQ is easily upgradeable."
The USBMobile Standard edition adds lower-level packet views found in LeCroy's full-featured USB analyzers. At $1199, the Standard edition also includes hardware-based triggering that can be essential for capturing and debugging intermittent software driver issues.
The top-of-the-line USBMobile Advanced edition is a complete analysis tool suitable for even the most experienced USB developer. Professional level capabilities including sequential triggering and comprehensive device class decoding with the CATC Trace give users a highly affordable solution without compromising on features.
"Our customers want to put more analyzers on their developer's desks and the USBMobile T2 makes that possible," said Roy Chestnut, Product Line Manager, Protocol Solutions Group, LeCroy Corporation. "For over 14 years, the reliability and the ease of use provided by the CATC USB analyzers gives our users the confidence that their USB products will be of the highest quality."
Based on LeCroy's original PCMCIA form-factor analyzer, the USBMobile T2 supports low-, full-, and high-speed USB as well as the On-the-Go (OTG) specification. All three versions of the USBMobile T2 benefit from innovative analysis features pioneered by the developers of the original CATC Trace. Bus utilization, performance metrics, error triggering and reporting all help reduce debugging time and accelerate time-to-market for USB 2.0 R&D teams.
USBMobile T2 can be ordered immediately and will begin shipping on June 1st, 2009. For additional information, contact LeCroy at 1-800-4LeCroy (1-800-453-2769) or visit the LeCroy web site (www.lecroy.com).
