In my Spectra SDR blog today I am highlighting a new product which is being added to our Spectra DTP4700 Development and Test Platform. The Spectra DTP4700 Probes Toolbox is designed to reduce turn-around time for developing new waveforms on Spectra DTP4700 by providing a multi-processor debugging capability during integration.
The Probes Toolbox is a real-time debugging tool with the ability to prove and excite waveform elements, thus allowing the piecemeal integration of waveform components one-by-one, and the validation of component temporal, processor, and memory behaviors independently. Probe data is visualized either with the toolbox’s internal visualizer, ProbeViz, or through MATLAB/Simulink, thus eliminating the need for additional 3rd-party tooling licenses for data visualization.
The toolbox’s Data Probe allows monitoring or injection of real-time system flow data. The Resource Probe provides graphical or textual representation of memory and CPU utilization, CPU resources, and allow memory Peeks and Pokes. The Latency Probe provides a graphical display of latency for user-defined probe points based on a uniform system time reference. The Traffic Probe captures and displays network traffic. The SCA Adapter Probe provides latency, traffic and data probes in an SCA-compliant environment. By using the Probe Toolbox, a developer or systems engineer can thus study real-time data in any connected waveform with ease.
In summary using the Probes Toolbox through the waveform porting cycle: increases engineer productivity, reduces porting and integration effort, decreases defect-error rates, reduces time-to-deploy, and lowers overall project cost and schedule risk.
