An Introduction to Logic Analyzers
Published: 06 August 2021 Last Updated: 03 November 2022
Logic Analyzers are inexpensive devices that allow you to just take a look at what a small number of pins on a chip are up to. They can be hooked into software like PulseView to read pin output and decode it into something more useful. Many decoders are available, but in this introduction we’ll have a quick look at PulseView and reading (decoding) UART data.
I’ve previously written about UART and how to find them with a JTAGulator, but here’s a different approach.
