Logic Analyzer Probe Accelerates P4 Designs

Paired with the 16900A logic analysis system, the E8045B logic analysis probe promises extensive visibility into the Pentium 4 processor in the 775-land package. The probe interfaces the logic analyzer to the processor with low mechanical and electrical intrusion, and the company’s electrically passive, 775-land probe adapter fits between the processor and its socket. During validation, the probe aligns the source-synchronous, quad-pumped data lines and double-pumped address lines with the b-clk frequency control signals. This is said to eliminate the need to consider multiple clock domains. For complete system validation, the probe can be time-correlated to other tools, including analysis probes for DDR 1 and 2, buffered DIMM (FBD), Infiniband, PCI, PCI Express, PCI-X 1.0 and 2.0, SATA 1 and 2, and USB 1.0, 1.1, and 2.0. Pricing starts at $85,000. AGILENT TECHNOLOGIES INC., Palo Alto, CA. (800) 829-4444, item number 7945.
