In order to support multi-bus analysis more efficiently this new generation of 1394 bus analyzers has been completely re-architectured.
The FireSpy 9432bT/9832bT have nine 1394 nodes connected to nine synchronized analyzer engines. They are controlled by three dual-core ARM processors running at 667MHz. Each node is connected to two 1394 ports. Both ports of each node are connected to a separate LEMO connector which was chosen over standard 1394 connectors for improved ruggedness.
The FireSpy 9432bT/9832bT are equipped with 15 GB internal memory and extensive hardware filtering and trigger possibilities. The analyzer can be connected to a host computer using the 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.
