NEW SIGNAL MONITORING ADAPTERS FOR MICTOR & SAMTEC CONNECTORS SUPPORT
AGILENT LOGIC ANALYZERS & SCOPES
New Bug Katchers provide a new way to access signals in a high speed
SANTA CLARA, Calif, August 10, 2004—Emulation Technology (ET), announced
today two of there newest Bug Katchers supporting the high-density 100-pin
Samtec® and high-speed 38-pin MICTOR® connectors. In response to designers’
need for fine-pitch debug and the ability to monitor signals using a logic
analyzer and an oscilloscope at the same time, ET created these new adapters
allowing designers easy access and probing capability for individual and
hard to reach signals in high-speed electronic designs.
DESIGNING IN SIGNAL ACCESS USING SAMTEC / MICTOR CONNECTORS
High speed designs and increased circuit complexity have created a need for
designers to use Samtec and MICTOR connectors to provide for the monitoring
of high speed signal during the design and debug stage of an electronic
design. The Samtec ASP-65067-1 connector and the Tyco MICTOR connector
2-767-004-2 have become standards in providing signal access to the
important signals on the printed circuit board. Using these connectors with
a logic analyzer or an oscilloscope reduce capacitive input loading and
improve isolation between adjacent channels.
SIGNAL ACCESS MADE SIMPLE
These Bug Katchers enable designers who have integrated Samtec or MICTOR
connectors into their designs to interface an Agilent logic analyzer and
oscilloscope at the same time using only one adapter. The user simply
unplugs the Agilent probe from his test setup and plugs in either the Samtec
or MICTOR Bug Katcher adapter. Each Bug Katcher adapter is manufactured with
.025” square test points on the top to connect an oscilloscope to individual signals, the Samtec or MICTOR connector on the bottom connects to the target
board, and an additional Samtec or MICTOR connector is mounted on the side
of the Bug Katcher adapter to connect to the Agilent logic analyzer.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Users can perform logic analysis and monitor signals with an oscilloscope
or other instrument at the same time using the .025” square test points
provided on both sides of the adapter
- Samtec and MICTOR connectors ensure a one-step secure and easy attachment.
- Test points also provide quick connection of test cable assemblies or test probes
- 4 layer PCB with ground planes for reduced noise and cross talk
- Each signal pin number is silk-screened on the probe adapter for easy signal identification.
Emulation Technology also offers cables, splitters, breakout adapters and
connectors and custom and built to order products to support signal
monitoring through Samtec and MICTOR connectors in a design and debug
PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
Pricing for the Samtec breakout adapter starts at $168.00 each, in one-piece
quantities; pricing for the MICTOR breakout adapter starts $158.00 each, in
one-piece quantities. Delivery is stock to 3 days.
