When working with digital electronics, a Logic Analyser can come in handy to display and decode all these signals. I recently bought an entry-level Logic Analyser with 16 channels – more than enough for testing and debugging my future JeeNode projects. It offers a large selection of downloadable Protocol Analysers. These software plugins are installed on your computer, and aid in interpreting bus signals like RS232, I2C, CAN and SMI.
The Zeroplus LAP-C 16032 comes with Windows-software. There is an Open Source project called “sigrok” that offers alternative software for the Zeroplus Logic Cube series of analysers. They also support Protocol Analysers in the form of Python plugins.
Apparently the Zeroplus LAP-C series can be modified to unlock new features, like sampling speed and memory depth.
