Total Phase Releases the Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer, an Affordable Real-Time High-Speed USB Monitor

SUNNYVALE, CA - October 29, 2007 - Total Phase is pleased to announce the addition of theBeagle™ USB 480Protocol Analyzer to its line of USB analyzers. The Beagle analyzer makes a significant breakthrough in price and form factor compared to similar products on the market.

"The response from USB developers has been tremendous," reports Kumaran Santhanam, Senior Architect. "People are very excited about the Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer's ease-of-use, portable size, and low cost. We are looking forward to getting this tool into the hands of developers."

Affordable Price Point

At $1200, less than 1/3rd of the price of its nearest competitor, theBeagle USB 480Protocol Analyzer makes traditionally expensive tools much more affordable to a wider audience. No longer do high-performance debugging tools have to be accompanied with a high price tag. For the price of only one competing analyzer, a company can outfit multiple engineers with their own Beagle analyzer. This eliminates development bottlenecks caused by having to share one analyzer, maximizing efficiency and productivity.

Convenient and Portable Form-Factor

At less than 1/6th of the size and 1/8th of the weight of its nearest competitor, field support engineers will especially appreciate the Beagle USB 480 analyzer's small form factor (112mm x 66mm x 23mm; 100g), making it the most portable high-speed USB analyzer on the market. Just plug the analyzer into the high-speed USB port of a computer and start capturing USB data immediately. It is the ideal tool for use in the lab or in the field.

Feature-Rich Offering

Even though theBeagle USB 480Protocol Analyzer is low cost, developers do not have to sacrifice functionality. The analyzer has a comprehensive set of features that rivals that of more expensive tools. Customers enjoy its ease of setup combined with the power of real-time data capture and display. Other major features include automatic speed detection, hardware-based packet suppression, multiple digital inputs and outputs for synchronization with external logic, and much more.

"We are very pleased with the feature set of the Beagle USB 480 analyzer," reports Derek Fung, Senior Engineer. "Total Phase actively sought the advice of USB developers and incorporated as many features as possible."

Free Software Supported on Windows Vista and More

Collaboration is easy when using theBeagle USB 480Protocol Analyzer thanks to the free Data Center™ capture software. Anyone can download the Data Center application from the Total Phase website to view captured data whether or not they own an analyzer. This capture software is supported on Windows 2000/XP/Vista and Linux.

Unlike many competing products, theBeagle USB 480Protocol Analyzer is a complete solution. All Total Phase products include free technical support, free software updates, and a free and royalty-free API.

With the ubiquitous presence of USB 2.0 in devices from consumer electronics to industrial controls, theBeagle USB 480Protocol Analyzer provides transparency into USB development with its unparalleled price, simplicity, and features.
