» Información en español

LE-650H2-A is the hardware-based USB protocol analyzer, which can record a large amount of data on the HDD/SSD of the PC, display translation with each class decode, and measure VBUS power consumption. The analyzer automatically detects the High/Full/Low speed of USB2.0/1.1 and starts measuring by simply pressing the space bar of the PC. The low cost device of easy operation by connecting it to the USB port of the PC is useful for developing/debugging the firmware/driver and study purpose of USB standard.

Easy Operation by Auto Tracking of the USB Speed

Without affecting the communication carrying data between the analyzer and target device, the analyzer internally records large amounts of data and simultaneously transfer it to a connected PC via USB. The analyzer automatically detects the speed of the target devices (480/12/1.5 Mbps), so a speed setting is unnecessary. If the device is connected through a hub of differing speed, measurement can be started by simply pressing the space bar of the PC.

*:   If the USB host used for measurement is a PC supporting the operating conditions of the analyzer, the PC can be used for analysis purposes as well.

Smaller and Lighter

LE-650H2-A has almost the same functions compared to the conventional model, but it is smaller and lighter by employing an aluminum case and 8-layer PCB.

Nomenclature
  1. Connect to the analysis PC.
  2. Power On (green)/Measuring (red)
  3. VBUS voltage is more than 4.5V (green)
  4. Transmitting (green)/Suspend (orange)
  5. High-speed (red)/Full-speed (green)/
    Low-speed (off)
  6. External trigger I/O connector.
  7. Connect to target USB devices

Continuous Recording up to 40GB on HDD or SSD.

Measured data is continuously transferred to the PC and recorded as log files with a maximum of 2GB (Can be specify every 1MB) on the HDD or SSD of the PC. Furthermore, it is possible to form a ring buffer to record maximum of 20 log files continuously by using repetitive recording mode. The measurement log data can be displayed and scrolled during measurement, which is effective for an extended analysis of rare communications failures.

Clearly Detailed Monitor Display

USB packets are clearly displayed by transaction. The device can identify PING and the split transaction at high-speed.

Standard descriptors/device requests, descriptors of Communication/Printer class, and peculiar device requests of HUB/HID/Audio/Communication/Mass storage class are translated and displayed in detail, therefore the difficult-to-understand USB protocols can be intuitively understood.

  1. Multiple packets are grouped as a translation and displayed on a single line.
  2. Only the first 8 bytes of data packets are displayed. Clicking the [+] mark displays all data.
  3. Displays the speed of each transaction.
  4. The USB bus state (Bus Reset, Suspend, Disconnect, Chirp) is recorded and displayed with communication data.
  5. The target transaction can be marked with 1 to 99, and can jump to the marked positions.
  6. Displays the SOF (Start of Frame) frame number. At high-speed, micro frames are displayed as (1/8) to (8/8). At low-speed, nothing is displayed in this column because no SOF packets are generated.
  7. Records and displays the time stamp at a resolution of 16.7ns.
  8. Visibility of continuous NAK packets is improved by displaying only those times.
  9. Displays the details of each transaction and frame.
    Token Packet Packet type, packet name, PID, address/end point, CRC5, packet start/end time
    Data Packet Packet type, packet name, PID, payload, CRC16, packet start/end time
    Frame Frame period, packet start/end time
  10. Clicking the [>>] mark displays a detailed translation window of the device request. Descriptors are displayed as a tree view to show their hierarchical structure.
  11. When a device request item is selected for transaction, the corresponding data in the data packet is highlighted.
  12. Displays VBUS power consumption, voltage and current at real time.
  13. Adds VBUS value on the logs of USB packets when measuring VBUS.(ver1.3.0.0. or above)
Extensive translate function

Device requests, descriptors, and commands of various USB classes are translated into easy-to-understand form. It can translate into HCI (Host Control Interface) packets on the Bluetooth dongle, and enable to initialize the Bluetooth dongle and to analyze communication between host and dongle of Bluetooth device. It offers efficient analysis of protocol level.

[Target device request]

Standard request, HUB/HID/Audio/Communication/MassStorage (Bulk Only Transport)/ Printer/ USBTMC / Video / Wire less controller (only HCI protocol on Bluetooth dongle)*1, Specific device request for the class.

[Target device descriptor]

Standard descriptor, Descriptor of each class in HUB/ HID/ Audio/ Printer/ USBTMC/ Communication/ Video, Command of MassStorage/Bulk Only Transport(Supports SCSI transparent command set,SFF-8070i), Operations of MTP/PTP, Responses, events, Command and Event of HCI protocol on Bluetooth dongle*1, Specifies class and displays details.

*1: Supports from Ver1.3.0.0 or above.
Device Request Window

  1. Button for opening and closing the tree.
  2. Button for copying the contents of the Device Request/Descriptor to the clip board.
  3. Button for displaying the previous/next Device Request.
  4. Button for pinning the Device Request on the screen.
  5. Button for adjusting the depth of the color.

High-precision Time Stamps

The built-in hardware timer of the analyzer records the time stamps at the packet start and end at a resolution of 16.7 ns based on the log start point as a reference point*1. The time stamps are displayed in the elapse time column and packet position bar. If the cursor points the packet, the time stamps are displayed on the tool tip window as well.

*1: The time stamp count is reset to zero approx. 5 hours after the start of the log, and continuously recording the time stamp.

Real-time Filter

The real-time filter reduces the quantity of log file data and improves the efficiency of analysis. It is possible to specify not to capture continuous NAK response transaction such as IN-NAK and OUT-NAK. And can specify particular addresses and end points under AND condition in order to record only transactions which meet the condition, or to eliminate them from the targets of recording.

Powerful Sequential Trigger

Trigger condition by a certain transmission data or an external signal condition Up to 16 actions can be set which will be executed when the trigger condition is established.
With these triggers you can control logging by synchronizing with external signal or cooperate with another measurement equipment by switching the external trigger signal to ON when a specify data is detected. It will help your analysis.

VBUS High-speed Measurement Function

The analyzer monitors USB transferring and displays VBUS data (Voltage, Current, Power consumption) in real time. An onerous probing is not necessary. It supports high-speed monitoring at minimum of 0.1 interval (Able to set 13 steps).

[ Real time display of VBUS measurement ]

Data Conversion function for data measured by OP-SB84.
  (Ver1.2.0.0. and above)

The log file (file extension: .DT) measured by OP-SB84 (An expansion board for LE-8200A/LE-8200) can be transferred into the LE-650H2 software for further analysis. Also, it can be saved as the log file of LE-650H2 (file extension: .usr).

* Log file which includes VBUS data measured by OP-SB84 cannot be transferred in to the LE-650H2 software.

VBUS logger mode(supported for v1.1.0.0 and above)

VBus measurement mode can have the VBus measurement for a long time.
It can record data in the PC at the specified cycle.
Detailed analysis is possible by displaying in graphs and saving as CSV file.

Specify VBus sampling rate and input measurement time.

Sampling rate (LE-650H2-A):
100μs, 200μs, 500μs, 1ms, 2ms, 5ms, 10ms, 20ms, 50ms, 100ms, 200ms, 500ms, 1s

When starting the measurement, result of VBus measurement will be displayed/recorded in graph and in dump display at time series.
It will stop measuring when it reaches to the measurement time.
Also, it is possible to stop the measurement manually.

  1. It displays Vbus voltage, current, and power consumption in graph at real time.
  2. It displays Vbus voltage, current, and power consumption in dump display at real time.
    *   Maximum 400,000,000 samplings (2GB) can be recorded from the beginning of measure.
  3. It is possible to select displaying or non-displaying voltage, current and power consumption in graph.
  4. It is possible to widen or shorten the horizontal axis of the graph.
  5. It is possible to select the vertical axis of the graph (voltage and current only) from 6 levels.

After the measurement, it is possible to save the log file and output in CSV format.

*   You cannot select the range of CSV outputting.
