Bus Doctor™ Rx Protocol Analyzer

With its modularity, portability, deep trace buffers, versatile configurability, and feature-rich software, the Bus Doctor Rx is the world's most powerful protocol analyzer. Its sleek design with built-in power supply makes it convenient for portability, while maintaining all the power and analysis capabilities of our other Bus Doctor analyzers. It is compatible with all Bus Doctor protocol analyzer bus pods, the industry's largest selection. Unlike the other Bus Doctor models, this model does not include a personal computer, but can be connected to most PCs via a USB port (USB 2.0 recommended). Also unlike the other Bus Doctor models, the Rx is field configurable to work either independently or together with other Rx analyzers.

Rx Protocol Analyzer Stacking
You may stack up to eight Rx protocol analyzers together to synchronize trace-taking. When stacked, you can configure the Rx analyzer to capture and analyze traffic from multiple busses of the same type or you may use a mix of different protocol analyzer bus pods. This unprecedented power allows you to use several Rx protocol analyzers in different labs at one moment, each working on different projects. The next moment you can put them together to capture bus traffic of multi-protocol complex systems. When stacked, the Bus Doctor Rx protocol analyzers share a common reference clock and can trigger across busses.

The Bus Doctor software for the Rx has all the display options, functionality, and analysis tools of the other Bus Doctor analyzer models. You may see the details of each bus under test. In addition, the Multi-Analyzer display shows you the Command Listing summary and State Listing displays for all the busses with which you are working in an interleaved, color-coded displayed sorted by the common time stamp.

A double-click in any of the individual Command, State, Histogram, or Waveform displays or in the Multi-Analyzer Display will synchronize the displays for all the bus displays to the same point in time. The Rx gives you the ability to simultaneously capture traffic from different storage, networking and backplane busses.

Rx Protocol Analyzer Configurations
The Rx protocol analyzer is compatible with Bus Doctor protocol analyzer bus pods. The Rx is available in three models: a 36, 108 and 252 memory channel model. In addition, each model is available in three configurations: Slim, Fit, and Buff. These configurations offer very large trace buffers of 16, 64 and 256 million events respectively (up to 9.2GB of dedicated high-speed memory for a Rx-252-Buff).

All the Rx models ship with a USB 2.0 port and cable for connection to a host computer. The power supply is auto-switching.
