In order to support multi-bus analysis more efficiently this new generation of 1394 bus analyzers has been completely re-architectured.
The FireSpy9x32bT 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 FireSpy9x32bT 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.
