SI-SCOPE is the most complete RS232 Analyzer available offering you both Async and Spy Mode operation and comes with the choice of two cabling options, our classic dual RS232 port Passive Monitoring Cable, or our next generation Ultra-Tap USB cable.
The diagram to the right illustrates how the dual port Passive Monitoring Cable (PMC) operates. When RS232 data is transmitted from one device to the other the data is routed into the SI-SCOPE PC while being transmitted to the receiving device.
All RS232 data, error conditions, and signal changes are recorded and time stamped at the interrupt level by SI-SCOPE'S PMC device drivers. SI-SCOPE'S interrupt driven design guarantees that the sequence of events are correctly maintained and the time between the events is accurately measured.
SI-SCOPE's PMC drivers support PCI, PCIe, PCMCIA, and ExpressCards under Windows 7 (x86/x64), Vista (x86/x64), XP, 2000, NT, ME, 98, and 95.
Ultra-Tap is our next generation cable design for bidirectional RS232 monitoring that eliminates the need for two dedicated serial communication ports. Ultra-Tap is an embedded RS232 monitor in a small hand held form factor that connects to your PC or laptop's USB port.
Ultra-Tap's embedded hardware manages the capture and time stamping of all RS232 data, signal changes, and error conditions for baud rates up to 921600 bps. SI-SCOPE'S Ultra-Tap drivers manage the USB interface and guarantee that all captured RS232 events are displayed in the proper sequence and that event timing is accurately maintained.
SI-SCOPE's Ultra-Tap's drivers are compatible with Windows 7 (x86/x64) Vista (x86/x64), XP, and Windows 2000.
Spy mode will work with any port enumerated by the Windows serial driver including internal PCI modems and USB serial devices. Spy mode supports Windows7 (x86/x64), Vista (x86/x64), XP, and 2000.
SI-SCOPE's interface was designed to maximize the amount of serial data displayed while making it easy to see at a glance the source of the data. All data events, signal changes, and line status errors are time tagged and can be searched on in the review window.
