The HOTLink II™ Serial Link Analyzer (HSLA) is a data recorder and diagnostics tool for 8b/10b encoded HOTLink systems. Each HSLA consists of hardware and a software that make data capture and analysis quick and easy.

The HSLA is available by lease only.

Hardware features

The HSLA uses 64-bit/66 MHz technology to capture and analyze raw HOTLink II data.

HL2View software features

HL2View software offers ease of use with the power to analyze and debug HOTLink II interfaces. See what's on the wire at the touch of a button. The time scale histogram quickly distinguishes idle characters from data characters. The programmable color-coded data display shows time and offset of the data when it was received. Analysis is fast and productive.
