Included Standard Probe

In addition to the regular trace features PowerTrace II can be used as a 17 channel logic analyzer with the provided Standard Probe for transient recording, simple triggering, protocol analysis etc. With the TRACE32 Analog Probe which could be ordered seperately the voltage and current values can be measured for energy profiling. PowerTrace II provides a 1024K trace memory for this purpose.

Mixed-Signal Probe

The scope of delivery for PowerTrace III also includes the TRACE32 Mixed Signal Probe, which allows digital and analog signals to be recorded and correlated directly with the trace recording performed by a TRACE32 AutoFocus II or Serial Preprocessor. The correlation is based on a common time stamp.

TRACE32 Mixed Signal Probe

  • Record digital/analog signals and correlate them with program flow
  • Digital signals: 12 channels, 0V - 5V, 200 MSamples/s per channel, threshold 0.1V - 2.5V
  • Analog signals: 6 single-ended voltage channels, -12V - +12V, 13-bit resolution, 2 current sense channels, up to 240mV differential shunt resistor voltage, 1 MSample/s conversion rate
