The Model K100-D Logic Analyzer was designed to provide
the utmost in performance and versatility for the digital
designer and troubleshooter; i.e., it can be considered
to be a true benchmark tool. It serves as both a time
domain (data recorded asynchronously), and a data domain
analysis tool (data recorded synchronously). The unit
accepts up to 16 logic signals through its active input
probes, and stores these discriminated signals in its
1024 word memory, at sample rates to 100 MHz.
The Model K100-D has comprehensive recording and
display analysis capabilities that enable the user
to perform complex timing and state analysis of his
digital systems. The unit has three distinct features
that make it a useful tool for logic troubleshooting.
First, the signals from the user's system are input
via specially designed hybrid active probes. The input
impedance of each probe is 1 MΩ , 5 pF. The probes
are individual to allow spanning to physically separated
points in the system, and also to provide for convenient
connection at the PC board level. Signal conditioning,
or threshold detection, and buffering of a particular
signal is provided at a point as close as possible to
the user's circuitry. The probe tip, with its accessories,
allows convenient connection to a system. The probes
detect logic spikes or glitches down to 5 ns regardless
of clock rate used.
Second, the instrument can clock at rates to 100 MHz
allowing timing measurements on up to 16 signals,
with a 10 ns time resolution. A relatively long memory,
1024 words, allows precise timing measurements over longer
intervals of time. The performance of the active probes
complement this high-speed recording capability.
Third, the instrument uses a microprocessor linked
to a front keyboard for instrument control. Comprehensive
display prompting is used to make it easy to set up
the unit for desired recording and display formats.
