Blackhawk announced the release of a new I²C bus analyzer product, dubbed Blackhawk Scribe. The Scribe represents Blackhawk’s first product introduction outside of its core JTAG emulation-based products. Combining an easy-to-use rich feature set with an affordable price, Scribe is well suited for both entry-level and complex I²C applications alike.
The Scribe is ideal for embedded software and firmware development, hardware debug, and system performance verification. Developers are able to monitor and log I²C bus traffic in real-time; all decoded I²C protocol data is displayed in an easily comprehended format. Hardware debugging features include exercising the I²C bus and communicating with its peripheral components which provides a convenient interface to “peek” and “poke” device registers while simultaneously watching traffic on the bus. In-System Programming (ISP) capabilities are also included to facilitate programming and verification of I²Ccompatible EEPROM devices using the Scribe's intuitive “single-click” interface to display and update memory contents.
For the first 90 days, the Blackhawk Scribe is available at the special introductory price of $1,295, substantially lower than the regular list price of $1,600.
