Total Phase Announces a New High-Speed USB Protocol Analyzer

SUNNYVALE, CA - April 3, 2007 - Total Phase is pleased to announce the addition of the Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer to its line of USB analyzers. This new high-speed USB 2.0 monitor features packet-level timing of 16.67 nanosecond resolution with real-time data display and filtering.

With the ubiquitous presence of USB 2.0 in devices from consumer electronics to industrial controls, the powerful and affordable Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer will satisfy the feature and budget requirements demanded by USB system developers.

Improving Developer Productivity

It is not uncommon for the development of a USB device to be constrained by the availability of a USB analyzer. By offering a price that is significantly less than the competition, it is possible for companies to realistically consider putting a USB analyzer on the desk of every USB hardware or software developer, removing a significant productivity bottleneck.

"With USB becoming an integrated part of modern microcontrollers, many developers will be faced with implementing USB for the first time," says Kumaran Santhanam, Senior Architect at Total Phase. "Our complete line of USB analyzers can be indispensable tools for these engineers. With powerful features at an affordable price, they provide an easy way to reduce development time and increase ROI."

Special Introductory Pricing

The Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer will become available this summer for purchase at the special introductory price of USD$1,200. The analyzer comes complete with analysis software and royalty-free API. Discounts are offered for volume purchases.

The Beagle USB 480 analyzer will use the existing Beagle Data Center capture software for monitoring USB data. Later this year, Total Phase will be releasing version 2.0 of the Beagle Data Center software, a major update with class-level decoding, expanded timing tools, faster filtering, and more. The software will be available at no additional charge to existing Beagle analyzer users.
