7400 competition entry: 8-Channel, 6 -MSPS USB logic analyzer

Posted on Friday, October 21st, 2011 in 7400 contest by DP

Helmy entered an 8-Channel 6MS/s USB logic analyzer into the Open 7400 Logic Competition. His device converts the 8 channel parallel inputs into a UART based serial signal. It outputs this serial signal to the input pin of a PL2303 USB-to-Serial chip which sends the data to the computer.

    Interesting idea. Where can I download the PC software?

  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
