Key Features & Specifications

Features

  • View internal FPGA activity
  • Change signals to be probed in seconds without recompiling so FPGA timing stays constant
  • Automatically map internal signal names from your FPGA design tool to your Keysight logic analyzer

Description

The Keysight FPGA dynamic probe, used in conjunction with a Keysight logic analyzer, provides the most effective solution for debugging problems - simple through complex. The FPGA dynamic probe lets you:

  • View internal activity - With a logic analyzer, you are normally limited to measuring signals at the periphery of the FPGA. With the FPGA dynamic probe, you get the additional benefit of being able to look at signals internal to the FPGA.
  • Change signals to be probed in seconds - Moving probe points internal to an FPGA used to be time consuming. Now, in less than a second you can easily measure a different set of internal signals - without recompiling so FPGA timing stays constant.
  • Leverage the work you did in your design environment - The FPGA dynamic probe maps internal signal names from your FPGA design tool to your Keysight logic analyzer. Eliminate unintentional mistakes and save hours of time compared to manually setting up signal and bus names and connections on logic analyzers without this capability.
