Due to the popularity of the Analog Discovery 2 and it’s digital tools, we’ve created the Digital Discovery.
The Digital Discovery is designed to be the ultimate embedded development companion. Configured and controlled by the full featured WaveForms 2015 software toolset, the Digital Discovery provides a Logic Analyzer, Pattern Generator, Digital IO, Protocol Analyzer and Script Editor. Equipped with a Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGA, the Digital Discovery can provide up to 32 channels and up to 800MSPS. Thats 8 times the sample rate of the Analog Discovery!
WaveForms 2015 is the software toolset that comes free with the Digital Discovery. After a quick (less than 10 minutes) download and installation, you can get debugging your embedded projects.
Designed with customization and the user experience in mind, WaveForms 2015 contains built in documentation and flexible features. The help tab is built into WaveForms 2015, and contains definitions and guides for every tool, drop-down and button. The Logic Analyzer allows you to customize your specifications. At 8 channels the Digital Discovery operates up to 800MS/s, at 16 channels the Digital Discovery operates up to 400MS/s, and at 32 channels the Digital Discovery operates up to 200MS/s.
Through WaveForms 2015, the following features of the Digital Discovery can be accessed:
24-channel digital logic analyzer (1.2…3.3V CMOS, up to 800MS/s (with the High Speed Adapter))
16-channel pattern generator (1.2…3.3V CMOS, 100MS/s)
16-channel virtual digital I/O including buttons, switches, and LEDs – perfect for logic training applications
Two input/output digital trigger signals for linking multiple instruments (1.2…3.3V CMOS)
A programmable Power Supply of 1.2…3.3V/100mA. The same voltage supplies the Logic Analyzer input buffers and the Pattern Generator input/output buffers, for keeping the logic level compatible with the circuit under test.
Digital Bus Analyzers (SPI, I²C, UART, Parallel)
With your Digital Discovery you’ll receive one 2×6 flywire and one 2×16 flywire to access the High Speed Inputs and Digital I/O.
However, there are four additional accessories that you can get for your Digital Discovery, the High Speed Adapter, High Speed Logic Probes, and more 2×6 connectors, 2×16 connectors.
The 2×6 and 2×16 provide options for leaving projects built and having extra cables, and the High Speed Adapter and Logic probes take the 200MS/s inputs and turn them into 800MS/s inputs… a huge increase in sample rate!
And because we love our customers, the first 100 people to order a Digital Discovery will receive the High Speed Adapter for FREE!
To take advantage of this offer, go to the Digital Discovery page and click on the radio button to add the Digital Discovery High Speed Adapter as an add on to place it in your cart. But remember, only the first 100 get this discount!
We are incredibly excited to see what embedded projects will be done and debugged with the Digital Discovery. To get started check out the Digital Discovery Getting Started Guide.
