Intel Developer Forum, SAN FRANCISCO, September 11, 2012 – Total Phase, a provider of industry-leading USB, I2C, SPI, and CAN embedded systems tools, announced the release of their new series of Beagle™ USB 5000 v2 SuperSpeed Protocol Analyzers. These new models build on the reliable technology seen in the original Beagle analyzers, adding advanced features such as SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.0) downlink and multi-analyzer synchronization to allow engineers to access their captured data with unparalleled precision and speed. Combined with Total Phase’s signature real-time analysis and display technologies, users will be able to debug their USB 3.0 applications faster than ever before. 

“SuperSpeed USB adoption has dramatically increased, as evidenced by many new PC and CE devices entering the market - The introduction of the USB 3.0 analysis port on Total Phase’s Beagle USB 5000 v2 analyzer, demonstrates SuperSpeed USB functionality provides value to the test and measurement industry,” said Jeff Ravencraft, Chairman, USB-IF.  “Release of this device is not only  an indication of the increasing adoption rate of SuperSpeed USB technology, but is also evidence that developers have embraced SuperSpeed USB and are using it for viewing and analyzing large volumes of data.”

To enable the USB 3.0 downlink, Total Phase has incorporated the Cypress EZ-USB® FX3™ chip. “The Beagle USB 5000 v2 analyzer exemplifies the advantages of Cypress’s FX3 controller,” said Mark Fu, Senior Marketing Director at Cypress Semiconductor. “FX3 allows developers to easily implement USB 3.0 into their system, which Total Phase has accomplished with its SuperSpeed USB downlink port on the Beagle USB 5000 v2 analyzer. We partnered with Total Phase throughout the development process in order to bring SuperSpeed USB to a wider population of developers, and we’re excited to see the new products hit the market.”

“We are thrilled our Beagle USB 5000 series of protocol analyzers are the first analyzers in the world with a SuperSpeed USB downlink. Developers will now have unprecedented access to USB 3.0 data, and we hope they will take full advantage of our real-time interactive capabilities for their USB development,” said Derek Fung, VP Business at Total Phase. “The Beagle USB 5000 v2 protocol analyzer enhances the engineer’s experience with USB 3.0 analysis, providing an advanced feature set at a very affordable price.”
