FLASH-PLAICE is a powerful in-circuit development tool that combines the features of a flash programmer, an emulator, and a high speed multi-channel logic analyzer into one device. It runs uClinux. The logic analyzer features up to 200MHz sampling rates and up to 32 input channels. The logic analyzer Java client features support for up to 200MHz sampling rates, user controlled filtering operations, time line in diagram, metadata (size, rate, and trigger position) stored in files, an ID command for device identification, configurable serial port transfer rate, user configurable drawing modes (logic level, hex value, and scope), and Java client access via almost any PC with a serial port. The Java client uses the RXTX serial library with support for 34 platforms including Linux, Windows, and Solaris. Java client plugins include an SPI and I2C bus protocol analyzer, timing analysis to state analysis conversion, and post-processing functions.
Endpoint turns a Linux machine with one or more FireWire cards into an SBP-2 device. One can use any physical block device or file (disc image) as storage. With multiple clients, each can potentially access the SBP-2 devices from a unique FireWire bus and utilize the full bandwidth of that bus.
