2.4 megasamples per second continuous AVR logic capture

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

From the comments on our earlier Turning the Freedom board into a Logic Analyzer post, Ralph Doncaster writes: For situations where the samples will fit in RAM, this is good. For long sampling periods I used a USBasp and a PL-2303HX to make a logic analyzer that can sample 2 lines...

A new open source 200MHz logic analyer

Thursday, January 9th, 2014

Here's an interesting open source 200MHz logic analyzer project on Kickstarter, the DSLogic by DreamSourceLab: DSLogic consists of DSLogic-Core and extension modules. DSLogic-Core is a re-configurable circuit board based on FPGA technology with maximum 200MHz sampling rate and 64Mbit on-board memory. DSLogic-Core can work alone as a fully functional logic analyzer, along with...

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

Friday, October 21st, 2011

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. Via...

Maker Faire 2011: Dangerous DSO

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

Dangerous DSO is a new logic analyzer/oscilloscope prototype we've been using in the lab. It combines a 16 channel logic analyzer with one 50MHz oscilloscope channel with +/-10volt DC range. The combined tool shows what your signal does between 0 and 1, which helps pinpoint noise and other electrical glitches.

Hacking Kinect with a USB analyzer

Wednesday, December 8th, 2010

Ladyada explores the Kinect protocol using a USB analyzer. While we know the Kinect has already been cracked, this is a good example of how USB analyzers can be a helpful (though costly) addition to a workbench.

Logic analyzer firmware development update

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

Today we completed an initial PIC firmware for the open source logic analyzer. The PIC has two operating modes: a serial bridge for SUMP to talk to the client on the FPGA, and a ROM programmer that updates the AT45DB041D flash chip with new logic for the FPGA. There's still...

Arduino logic analyzer

Thursday, December 17th, 2009

Merve is working on an Arduino-driven logic analyzer design in the Arduino Forum. It uses logic chips to drive SRAM memory during acquisition, the Arduino then dumps samples from the SRAM via a shift register. We're really interested in the result of this design. We once attempted a logic chip-based...
