The FireSpy3470bT bus analyzer is an interesting addition to the Triple analyzer series from DapTechnology. Based on the proven architecture of the FireSpy3850 this new product meets many customer requests for this 3U CPCI/PXI form factor! Just like the FireSpy3850 it combines three FireSpy analyzers in one single instrument. It comprises a significantly more powerful on-board processor and improved connectivity to the host.
The Compact PCI form factor makes this product very appealing as the solution enables users to install the FireSpy hardware in any 3U CPCI or PXI card slot.
The FireSpy3470bT has three 1394 nodes connected to three synchronized analyzer engines. They are controlled by an on-board RISC processor running at 400 MHz. Each node is connected to three active transformer coupled ports. All nine ports are connected via a high-speed high density connector on the front bezel and are made accessible via a special adapter cable (with 1394b Beta connectors).
The FireSpy3470bT is equipped with 1 GByte memory and extensive hardware filtering and trigger capabilities. 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 and program your own controlling software.
