View Audio Waveforms

Teledyne LeCroy’s Audiobus decode enables the unique View Audio feature that converts the digitally-encoded serial data audio signal into an analog waveform display. This provides an intuitive way to understand circuit problems causing clipping, glitches, and other anomalies in the audio circuit. It also helps show the effects of the audio signal before Digital Signal Processing (DSP). View Audio can be performed for up to four audio channels for conventional Left/Right audio, or home cinema applications (enabled by time division multiplexed audio buses).

The Most Intuitive Decode

Audiobus uses color-coded overlays on various sections of the protocol decode for an easy-to-understand visual display. This Teledyne LeCroy exclusive feature is intuitive to experienced audio engineers and especially useful for users new to the I2S, LJ, RJ, or TDM Audiobus standards. The decode information condenses or expands depending on the timebase/ zoom ratio setting, simplifying both routine verification and complex troubleshooting. Choose to decode into Hex, Binary, Decimal, or dB formats.

Powerful Conditional Data Triggering

The Audiobus trigger can be configured for I2S, LJ, or RJ variants. Powerful conditional triggering can be applied to either left or right channel data, while unique triggers like mute, clip, and glitch help isolate rare problems not easily detected by viewing decoded data alone.

Flexible Triggering

The Audiobus trigger can be configured for I2S, LJ, or RJ variants. Powerful conditional triggering can be applied to either left or right channel data, while unique triggers like mute, clip and glitch help to isolate rare problems not easily detected by viewing decoded data alone.

Convenient Table Display Summarizes Results

Turn your oscilloscope into a protocol analyzer with the Table display of protocol information. Custom configure the Table to display only the infor mation you want, and export Table data to an Excel file. Touch a message in the table and auto matically zoom for detail. In all cases, the Table never obscures your waveform data.

Search and Zoom

Audiobus messages can be quickly located by search ing on message or pattern. Pressing an arrow button advances the single zoomed message view one message to the right or left of the current message.
