Spotlight: Beagle USB 480 Power Protocol Analyzer - Standard Edition

The Beagle family of USB Analyzers from Total Phase is always a success when USB product design reaches the debugging phase. The graphical user interface is always easy to follow, with the ability to dive into any detail needed. I have solved many problems in USB firmware, both my own designs as well as in library support from USB chip vendors. Indispensable!
