1.1.2. Link Analysis

The Link Analysis module displays a sequence of events on an Ethernet IP link, which occurred in a finite duration of time.

The Link Analysis relies on Signal Tap Logic Analyzer to capture and store database (.csv) of all required signals. Once the Signal Tap Logic Analyzer creates a database, the Link Analysis performs an analysis on the database to extract all the required information and displays them in a user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI).

The features of the Link Analysis include:
  • Ability to capture and display events that occur during Ethernet IP link bring-up. For example, Auto Negotiation and Link Training.
  • Ability to capture the link behavior at an intended trigger point and analyze link behavior around that time period.
