Re: OT - Any interest in starting a Tektronix Logic Analyzer Group? (with added bonus question!)


 

While it's interesting to debate the need for a dedicated LA group (IMHO not needed), what actually impelled Jonathan to post here was his question about the probes.

Sadly his tendency towards OCD pushed the "there needs to be a dedicated group for LAs" issue to the fore, while his immediate need is the answer to the question:

I have a TLA 510/520 I want to press into use. I have the 92C96 acquisition board, cable, and leads - all the way to the individual two-pin signal (+gnd) lead
meant to be plugged into header pins on the target. That's where my problem starts - I need grabber clips (EZ-Hook, KlipChip, etc.), but the grabbers only
have a single pin and the probe cable won't fit onto them. In the manual for this thing (under "optional accessories") they describe:
p/n 020-2108-00: Six 8-channel lead sets, 12 Y-cables, 72 KlipChip Adapters
Are these "Y-cables" little two-wire splitters that go between the probe tip and the grabber?
Does anyone know the answer?

FYI for Saleae users...their SDK is open so you can roll your own protocol analyzers.
