In order to support multi-bus analysis more efficiently this new generation of 1394 bus analyzers has been completely re-architectured.
The FireSpy4430b(T)/4830(bT) have three 1394 nodes connected to four 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 FireSpy4430b(T)/4830(bT) are equipped with 10 GB internal memory and extensive hardware filtering and trigger possibilities. The analyzer can be connected to a host computer using its USB3.0 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.
