LeCroy announced that UART, RS-232 and LIN trigger and decode capabily for I2C, SPI and CAN are available on all WaveRunner Xi and WaveSurfer Xs mixed signal oscilloscopes. The UART and RS-232 system provides the ability to trigger and decode both RS-232 and generic UART signals. The LIN trigger and decode system provides full support of LIN 1.3, 2.0 and J2602. Both systems use patented software algorithms for decoding and displaying the data. A color-coded overlay is placed on top of the signal that can be read at a glance, and the decoded data can be displayed in binary, hexadecimal or ASCII format. As the amount of time displayed on the screen is changed, the data is formatted to fit the screen.
