What Causes PHY Errors in USB 3.0 and How Can I Correct Them?

Question from the Customer:

I am working with Active Optical Cables (AOCs), and I am using the Beagle USB 5000 v2 SuperSpeed Protocol Analyzer - Ultimate Edition. I am having a problem diagnosing one of the USB 3.0 Standard-A to USB Micro-B cables with an industrial USB 3.0 vision camera (JAI GO-5000C-USB).  When I connect the ca...

How Do I Set Up the Komodo CAN Duo Interface to Run Preliminary Tests on the CAN Bus?

Question from the Customer:

I am starting to use the Komodo CAN Duo Interface with the loopback test that was provided with the Komodo Software API. I have tried many times, but I cannot get the test to run, and it’s not consistent: sometimes port A or port B will not enable; sometimes the write command fails.  Am I missing somet...

How Does the Beagle USB 5000 v2 Protocol Analyzer Store Data Beyond Its Internal Buffer?

Question from the Customer:

I am looking at the Beagle USB 5000 v2 SuperSpeed Protocol Analyzer - Standard Edition, which supports both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 at a reasonable cost. For some cases, I need to store large amounts of data; some tests run for days. How can I store data that exceeds the size of the internal memory buffe...
