The I2C Bus Monitor Plus is the laboratory grade troubleshooting instrument for the I2C Bus, SMBus, PMBus and other derived protocols. When connected to an I2C or derived protocol bus and a host computer, the I2C Bus Monitor Plus captures, filters, and displays bus message data and timing information.
If your designs include heavy I2C Bus, SMBus, or derived protocol content, the I2C Bus Monitor Plus will give you the bus monitoring power you need, including data timestamping, variable logic voltage thresholds, and flexible triggering. Whether you're testing designs with a single master and slave, such as programming configuration EEPROMs, or monitoring multiple masters and slaves in a server maintenance system, the information packed screens help you get your debug and verification done faster.
A test cable provides connection to the network under test. Test clips are provided for:
TTL signal input to synchronize data collection with external events.
TTL signal output to synchronize external equipment with I2C Bus Start, Stop, Ack, Nack, and Bit Pattern matching events.
Use to attach optional external equipment in automatic test environments. Signals include:
Optional Add-On Interface kits are available separately.
The I2C Bus Monitor Plus includes an extensive array of message monitoring capabilities. These include:
Bus activity can be monitored on a selective or non-selective basis. Filter displayed messages on Slave Address, up to 8 Data bytes, and SBS protocol violation only.
Software controlled 0.7V to 2.5V.
100-240VAC, 50-60Hz, Global AC Plug Set (included)
