Data Center Software


Part Number: TP201110

The Data Center™ Software is a free bus monitoring software that captures and displays USB, USB Type-C Power Delivery, I2C, SPI, eSPI and CAN bus data through the Beagle™, USB Power Delivery, and Promira™ platform line of hardware protocol analyzers and the Komodo™ line of CAN interfaces. Data Center is the only protocol analysis software in the industry with true real time performance and cross-platform support for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.

Data Center Software features LiveDisplay™, LiveFilter™, and LiveSearch™ technologies that allow developers to easily see, filter, and search bus data as it is being captured in real time.

Features in Data Center Software include:

*The Beagle USB 12 Protocol Analyzer only supports USB descriptor parsing. Full class-level decoding is available with the Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer and the Beagle USB 5000 SuperSpeed Protocol Analyzer.

Detailed technical information about the Data Center Software be found in the User Manual.
