The Tinkerforge Saleae Logic High Level Analyzer is an extension for Saleae Logic 2. It makes analysis of the communication with Co-MCU Bricklets using one of the Saleae Logic Analyzers a lot easier.
The analyzer can decode captured SPI communication into SPITFP and TFP packets. It contains a database of all functions of Bricks and Bricklets.
The analyzer can assist in debugging bugs when developing new Bricklets using the XMC1400 Breakout Bricklet.
To be able to capture the SPI communication, you need to build yourself an adapter to tap into the electric signals. You can, for example, use two Breakout Bricklets and a pin header to connect them.
If you are using the XMC1400 Breakout Bricklet you can capture the SPI communication from the pins marked with CS, CLK, MOSI and MISO.
The analyzer requires an up-to-date version of the Saleae Logic 2 alpha, at least 2.3.0.
In Logic 2 you can add the analyzer as an extension from the marketplace. It should then be possible to add the SPITFP analyzer.
The following options can be configured for the analyzer:
It is possible to add multiple instances of the analyzer. This allows parsing both directions of communication (i.e. from/to the Bricklet) at the same time. This can also be used to get a multi-line output when analyzing large packages: Add one instance with Headers output format and one with the Payload output format to see the parsed packets as shown in the screenshot above.
