• Summary

    FireSpy® 810/410b(T)

    The FireSpy810, FireSpy410b and FireSpy410bT bus analyzers are the flagship in the second generation of IEEE-1394 analyzers from DapTechnology. Based on the industry leading FireSpy800 the all new and enhanced architecture of the FireSpyx1(bT) have raised the bar in IEEE-1394 test equipment! They comprise a significantly more powerful on-board processor, more memory and improved connectivity to the host.

    The FireSpyx10(bT) are small, compact instrument that are equipped with 1024 MB internal memory. The units offer extensive hardware filtering and trigger possibilities due to efficient programmable logic and an on-board processor. They support up to 800Mb transfer rate and is fully IEEE-1394b compliant. Two bilingual 1394b ports allow for convenient connection to the system under test.

    The FireSpyx10(bT) may be connected to a host computer via the USB2.0 interface. Furthermore, an Ethernet port allows for easy network integration and remote control. The graphical user interface runs on WindowsTM  Operating Systems. It is intuitive and offers a user-friendly way of data presentation and user control. Additionally, the included API even allows you to build your own controlling software or interface using C/C++ or LabVIEWTM.

    The seamless integration of the SAE AS5643 protocol makes the FireSpyx10(bT) the preferred tool for many Aerospace & Defense development tasks. DapTechnology has taken considerable efforts to fully support the SAE AS5643 protocol in all major functional areas of the FireSpyx10(bT) and continuously updates the analyzer functionality according to implementation requirements and ongoing standardization efforts.

                FireDiagnostics Suite

                The FireDiagnostics Suite is the most comprehensive collection of 1394 analysis, simulation and interface tools for a wide range of applications. Apart from well established and hardware assisted analyzer tools like Monitor, Recorder, Generator, Commander, Scriptor and Mil1394 Signal Monitor, the suite also offers a set of software tools designed to allow the integration of the FireSpy products in a wide variety of testing applications, as well as extend customization of its functionality beyond the baseline feature set provided by DapTechnology.

                FireSuite API

                The foundation for all software tools included in the FireDiagnostics Suite is formed by the Application Programming Interface (API). With its interfaces for a wide range of development environments using C/C++ or LabVIEWTM on WindowsTM Operating Systems, the application of FireSpy analyzers is extremely flexible. With its feature-rich function library, all hardware assisted analyzer tools like the Monitor and Recorder can be controlled as well as more low-level 1394 bus functions.

                Protocol Support

                A cornerstone of FireDiagnostics Suite functionality is the unparalleled level of support for high-level protocols. With IEEE-1394 being the basic data exchange mechanism application specific protocols for the PC & storage environment (IPv4, SBP2), consumer electronics (AV/C, HAVi), Automotive Infotainment (AMI-C), Industrial Imaging (IIDC) have been successfully deployed. In recent years AS5643 has been adopted for use within Aerospace and Defense and largely fueled the continuous growth of IEEE-1394.
