LeCroy’s UWBTracer MPI system is the first ultra wideband (UWB) protocol analyzer, and supports WiMedia and Wireless USB (WUSB) standards. Built on LeCroy’s modular protocol analyzer platform, the UWBTracer MPI system allows engineers to troubleshoot the source of errors and verify proper operation for MAC-PHY integration. The system captures and decodes WiMedia and WUSB protocols. By capturing traffic between a MAC and PHY, the user can display protocol traffic from boards currently in the design phase. The analyzer software can logically organize and display the protocol either chronologically or hierarchically at the WiMedia and WUSB protocol layers. The CATC Trace software display not only shows the protocol, it also includes information about the WiMedia and WUSB specification in pop up tool tips, including packet structure and field usage.
