Haarlem, the Netherlands: A FlexRay serial bus analysis function is now available as an option to four-channel models in the Yokogawa DLM2000 series of mixed-signal oscilloscopes.
Designed to provide physical-layer (PHY) waveform observation and protocol analysis for the FlexRay in-vehicle local-area network (LAN), the new facility lets users capture FlexRay bus signals with a variety of dedicated triggers and carry out analysis and troubleshooting on parameters that can affect the FlexRay signal.
The DLM2000 can automatically detect and display packet information directly beneath the time-domain waveform. It also can search or trigger on specific serial bus conditions. A variety of trigger conditions can be set, including ID/data trigger combinations and combinations of serial bus triggers with normal edge triggers.
Additionally, the DLM2000’s serial bus analysis function enables simultaneous analyses of different buses. Waveforms and analysis results from two buses with different speeds can be displayed in individual zoom screens with different scales.
