ScanaQuad (SQ) is a series of high-performance 4-channel logic analyzers and digital pattern generators. They are designed to be your best companion when working on serial protocols like UART, SPI, I2C, 1-Wire, USB, I2S, CAN, LIN, RS232, RS485, and more. With ScanaQuad Logic Analyzers, you can capture signals, play them back, and even build genuine test signals and generate them.
Being able to capture and generate logic patterns simultaneously with the same tool is extremely useful when debugging logic signals.
Additional channels will be possible by connecting multiple ScanaQuad units to a SYNC-BOX, which is expected to be released in the summer of 2016.
Mixed-Mode Operation The ability to capture and generate signals simultaneously opens a whole new set of perspectives when it comes to debugging your electronic project.
Decode and Analyze Analyze protocols with software tools that give you a global view of your data and help you to identify bugs quickly.
Advanced Trigger Enjoy a versatile trigger system that can target a specific UART byte, I2C address or any other sophisticated data pattern.
Protocol Decoder Library The ScanaStudio software includes several protocol decoders, while others can be imported via internet from within the software (Options → Manage Decoders). Decoders include 1-Wire, 1-Wire Temperature Sensors, CAN, DHTxx, DMX-512, HC-SR04, I2C, I2C Temperature and Humidity Sensors, I2S, JTAG, LCD 4-bit, LIN, Manchester, Maple Bus, MIDI, NMEA 0183, nRF24L01, Oregon Scientific, Parallel Bus, PWM, SENT, SPI, SPI WIZnet W5100, UART, USB 1.1.
