The Frontline X240 Wireless Wideband Analyzer , says the company, combines state-of-the-art wideband software defined radio technology with the company's new Wireless Protocol Suite to offer an unparalleled combination of portability, configurability, and deep protocol analysis.
"Not larger than the average paperback book, the sleek and powerful Frontline X240 provides message sequence charts, packet error rate statistics, throughput graphs, packet timelines, and other critical protocol information, all in a customizable windowing system," says Paul Russell, VP Wireless Products, Teledyne LeCroy. "It is made for mobility and is configurable to target the precise wireless protocol engineers need to analyze."
With the growing use of wireless technologies in the Internet-of-things (IoT) market, the roll-out of mesh networks and location-based services, and the adoption of advanced audio codecs, says the company, design and test engineers need flexible protocol tools to effectively analyze, validate, and troubleshoot complex product designs prior to, and after market introduction. Frequently, the wireless data must be correlated with many lines of wired digital data. The Frontline X240 offers flexible licensing to support the analysis of these wireless technologies alongside wired HCI UART and logic data.
The X240 can be used with additional X240 units to improve wireless capture performance or synchronized with other protocol analyzers from the company using the company's CrossSync synchronization functionality to enable time-aligned analysis of multiple protocol interfaces. The Frontline X240, says the company, comprehensively analyzes data communications - whether working in a lab, drive testing in an automobile, or working in the field - to quickly validate design implementations, measure performance, and look for potential errors in the protocol behavior to enable shorter time-to-market.
The Frontline X240 is available now.
