Teledyne / LeCroy / Catalyst SBAE-20 USB Analyzer/Exerciser

  • High-Speed, Full-Speed, and Low-Speed Analyzer and Exerciser as Host
  • Proprietary Built-In Repeater Interface Prevents Signal Distortion
  • Compliance Testing for Inrush, Suspend, Configured, and Un-Configured Current
  • Up to 480 Mbit/Sec Real-Time Continuous Performance Analyzer
  • Interactive "Linked" Exerciser Analyzer Operation in High, Full, and Low Speeds
  • Adjustable Data Out for Timing Characterization for Full and Low Speeds


The LeCroy / Catalyst SBAE-20 USB Analyzer/Exerciser is a USB 2.0 serial bus analyzer capable of analyzing and exercising data transfers of up to 480 Mbit/sec. SBAE-20 detects the bus speed and analyzes the protocol accordingly.

A proprietary repeater circuitry is designed in as an interface to the analyzer to prevent signal distortion when the analyzer is introduced between the host and the device to analyze high speed protocols. The auxiliary connectors for device and host on the SBAE allow for testing USB Hub input and output. These two auxiliary ports can also be used as a second channel (full- and low-speed only) for the analyzer.

Eight user defined packets, including all USB protocol fields, are available to define patterns for capture and triggering. A flexible 32-state sequencer allows users to define a sequence of actions to be performed by the hardware depending on the events and packets on the USB bus. The Analysis and Exercising actions may be defined in the Sequencer to be conditional based on events on the bus.

The SBAE-20 has six counters and four timers to measure items as throughput of bus, efficiency of a device, bus usage by a device, data rate, etc. SBAE-20 detects up to 12 protocol errors simultaneously with sampling. The SBAE-20 samples inrush current for the initial 10 milliseconds with 0.2 µs resolution. This measurement is then displayed on the screen with a pass/fail report. SBAE-20 measures these currents with resolution of 2.7 mA for operating and un-configured current and 2.7 uA for suspend current.
