A "How To" tutorial on logic analyzer basics for digital design

Posted: 02 May 2007     Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:logic analyzer  timing analyzer  state analyzer 

Let's assume that you need to simultaneously look at the inputs and outputs of a 16-bit counter to determine a timing error, but you have only a 2-channel scope ? how do you look all of the required signals? Or let's suppose that you've just developed timing diagrams for a board full of digital circuitry. How do you verify them? What do you use to capture and analyze the signals on the board?

Without the appropriate tool, solving these kinds of problems can be very time consuming. For the above problems, a logic analyzer is the best solution. Most logic analyzers are really two analyzers in one: a timing analyzer and a state analyzer.

This article provides a quick overview of logic analyzer basics and offers ideas as to what can be achieved using a logic analyzer.
