FireMatrix is an example of an integrated 1394 analysis and test platform. In its simplest case it can function as an out-of-the-box 1394 Bus analyzer solution without the need for external PCs, laptops etc. However, it can also be utilized as a platform to build large and integrated test systems that are relying on FireSpy features and functionality. Higher-level applications can easily interface to the analyzer's API and thus enable a variety of test applications.
Besides its well-proven standalone and card-based FireSpy bus analyzer solutions, DapTechnology can offer such out-of-the-box FireMatrix solutions. The FireMatrix in general is comprised of a portable PC platform hosting a flexible number of 1394 analyzer cards. Limited only by the number of available PCI slots, the FireMatrix is a truly scalable system with regards to the number of 1394 bus analyzer engines. As an added feature the FireMatrix also offers support for IRIG-B time stamping.
Alternatively, FireMatrix can also be built combining DapTechnology’s own ruggedized and MIL-grade enclosure hosting Gen4-FireSpy(s) together with a ruggedized laptop.
The following FireSpy cards can be used within the FireMatrix platform:
- FS850, FS450b, FS450bT, FS3850, FS3470bT (Single and Triples from Gen2 FireSpys
