LA-5000
Logic Analyzer
Pattern Generator

The PC-based Logic Analyzers communicate with your laptop or desktop PC by USB. They offer high speed clock rates, deep buffers, and sophisticated triggering. In addition the LA-5000 Logic Analyzers are available in 40, 80 and 160 channel versions.

The Windows software makes it easy to use your Logic Analyzer. Sharing data and printing are a mouse click away.

The USB Logic Analyzer can be configured to be a Pattern Generator with the optional pattern generator pods.

Logic Analyzer FrontPanel® software for Windows

Timing window

The timing window shows the data as waveforms with the X-axis representing time. Individual channels or groups of channels can be displayed in this view.

The software allows you to change channel order, size, position, and color.

Channel groups can be displayed in a numeric format or as a waveform.
LA data displayed as waveform

 
Individual pulse width and frequency information can be displayed.

Statelist window

The statelist window displays the data in a numerical format with the Y-axis representing time. Individual channels or groups of channels can be displayed in this view. Data can be displayed in Binary, Hex, ASCII, Decimal or in user-defined decoding.
Statelist Window

SPI analyzer

SPI protocol data can be captured and displayed by the Logic Analyzer. It can be shown in a decoded format, as well as a waveform.
SPI decoding

I2C analyzer

The software translates and displays captured I2C commands. What makes this product superior to other I2C Monitors is that you are able to see all activity on the Clock and Data lines in Timing and Statelist display, not just the valid codes.

In addition to capturing I2C data, the Pattern Generator can be used to output I2C commands to stimulate your circuit.

Pulse measurements

Measurements include:
Pulse width, Minimum Pulse width, Maximum Pulse width, Frequency, Period, Duty cycle and Pulse count.

High speed operation (500 MSa/s / 200 MSa/s)

In theory you need to capture at twice your sample rate. However, in reality you need to be much faster than that. Our Analyzers provide up to 500 MSa/s clock rates for accurate and detailed capture.

Deep data buffers (up to 512 K samples per channel)

Our buffer allows you to store a great number of events. In some scenarios, it's difficult to pinpoint the exact event that you want to trigger on. With our system you don't need to know exactly where to trigger, since our large buffer will capture so many events. Our LA-5000 can capture long events that other analyzers may cut off. Lastly, you can maintain higher sampling rates to get more detail without running out of buffer space.

Pattern Generator

The optional 100 Mpt/s Pattern Generator pods allow you to configure the LA as a Pattern Generator.  The output patterns can be created with our software, loaded from a file, or acquired through the input channels.

Advanced triggering

Our Logic Analyzer captures what is important to you. The 16 level triggering (up to 160 bits each) lets you fine tune the exact point to start capturing. Multilevel triggering can be used to look for a sequence of events (i.e. address xxxx1110xx111x0x followed by address 11xx1110xx111x0x).

High voltage inputs

The LA-5000's can work with much higher voltages than other Logic Analyzers. The inputs are rated at ± 150 V DC continuous and 250 V DC transient.

USB communications

The LA-5000s connect to your computer by USB.

Accessories

Wire harnesses:
One end of the wire harness plugs into the pod, and the other has connectors for 8 channels and grounds. The wires can be connected directly to 0.025" posts on your test circuit or to our test clips.

Clips:
The double gripper is designed for hard-to-make test connections of varying sizes and shapes.

Nano-clips:
The optional Nano-clips allow you to connect to very small surface mount pins.

Logic Analyzer pods


Data Pod

File save / export

  • Data can be exported in "CSV" format to programs like Mathcad, Excel, Word, etc.
  • You can paste screen images into your reports using programs like Word, Excel, image editors, etc.
  • Data can even be shared with other computers. You can capture data in the lab and view it in your office or e-mail it to other engineers at remote locations for analysis. You don't need to have our instrument connected to view a file..

Software libraries (DLL)

If you wish to write your own software to drive the unit, you can buy our optional DLL library. The DLL was written in Visual C++ and includes a sample program that allows you to configure both the LA and PG channels, capture data and transfer it to the PC.
