PCIe Suite Data Pattern Search

Teledyne LeCroy PCIe suite supports a versatile data pattern search. This technical brief will show how us the search tool to locate a file directory to determine the starting LBA of the directory structure.

PCIe Suite Data Pattern Trigger

Teledyne LeCroy PCIe suite supports a versatile data pattern trigger. This technical brief will show how us the trigger in typical use cases as a tool to locate a file or directory access or simply to trigger on a starting LBA. This technical brief will focus on an NVMe application however the methodology is applicable to many other scenarios.

SATA Device Data Compare

The Teledyne LeCroy SATA and SAS Host and Initiator Emulator tools include a feature that makes it easy to perform write-then-read data compare tests on SATA or SAS storage devices such as HDDs and SSDs. This tech brief details the functionality and use of the “” example Host Emulation script included with the SAS/SATA Protocol Suite software installation.

Using the Trainer to Send BIST Activate Frame

The Sierra Trainer can be used to place a SATA Host or Device into Built In Self Test (BIST) loopback mode, usually for the purpose of transmitter testing. This technical brief details an easy step-by-step method for placing a SATA device into “Far end transmit-only,” aka “T” mode, with the Sierra Trainer.

Create Custom Masks for Zi Series Scopes

The SDA series of Serial Data Analyzers are powerful tools for the measurement and analysis of serial communications systems. While they contain an ever growing library of serial data standards there is always a need to be able to create or modify test masks for newer or modified serial communications standards. The LeCroy Masks Database Editor is a software tool which allows users to quickly create and load custom test masks in and SDA series analyzer.

EMI Radiated Immunity Testing With Oscilloscopes

This application brief discusses the recommend methods, test configurations and best practices for electromagnetic interference radiated immunity testing using real time oscilloscopes.

Using a Resolver Interface with the MDA810 Motor Drive Analyzer

Motor drives utilizing complex control systems (e.g. Vector field-oriented control or FOC) commonly use a resolver interface to provide signals to the control system for calculation of motor shaft speed, angle, and absolute position. The control system requires this information for correct calculation of the required drive output signals. A resolver interface makes debugging and validating drives and control systems much easier when a power analyzer, such as the MDA810, calculates speed, angle, and position directly from the resolver interface and displays them as waveforms.

Analyzing Power Semiconductor Devices

Teledyne LeCroy's PWR software option enables engineers to make power device measurements quickly and easily. Color-coded overlays between states make measurements intuitive and clear. This brief provides an overview of device measurement capability and how to set up these measurements for the most accurate and consistent results.
