Wireless protocol analyser supports WiMedia UWB and Wireless USB standards
Now available in the UK from Computer Solutions, the Ellisys Explorer 300 Wireless USB analyser is the industry's first protocol analyser to support the Certified Wireless USB and WiMedia ultra wideband (UWB) standards with data being taken over the air.Wire
The Wireless USB Explorer 300 is designed to help wireless USB developers simplify firmware and driver development, prevent interoperability problems, verify data encryption, optimise performance, tune power management, and improve communication reliability.
The Explorer 300 can record and decode WiMedia UWB and Certified Wireless USB protocols - by capturing traffic exchanged between devices over the air through its external omnidirectional antenna or by capturing traffic between MAC and PHY layers from boards under development with a direct cable connection.
The analyser's software records traffic exchanged over the air between devices, displaying the resulting decoded information in real time. It automatically deciphers encrypted data payloads, highlights protocol errors or misuse and groups similar packets as well as hiding redundant fields to reduce the users information burden. A free viewer allows users to exchange recorded traffic with others.
