In order to support multi-bus analysis more efficiently this new generation of 1394 bus analyzers has been completely re-architectured.
The FireSpy3x22xx have three 1394 nodes connected to three synchronized analysis engines. They are controlled by a dual core ARM processor running at 667MHz. Each node is connected to three 1394 ports. All ports of each node are connected to a 1394 bilingual connector in compliance with the 1394 standard.
The FireSpy3x22xx are equipped with 5 GB internal memory and extensive hardware filtering and trigger possibilities. The analyzer can be connected into a host computer using its PCIe interface. On the host you can control the FireSpy using a graphical user interface to analyze and display the bus traffic in a user-friendly way; or you can use the API to program your own control software.
