Thread: USB FPGA Logic Analyzers: Worth Investigating?

    Here is a link to my PDF searchable scan of the HP Model 64672A 6800/6802 Interface Module Service Guide, 64672-90901, dated September 1983:

    Sorry to be clobbering this USB FPGA Logic Analyzers - I'll create a separate thread.

    Here is a link to my new thread on HP Logic Analyzers and PreProcessors

    Can they not be imaged with Imagedisk as discussed here:

    The HP logic analyzer floppy disks in either LIF or MS-DOS format are no problem to image and archive using ImageDisk or similar tools.

    The non-trivial thing AFAIK is the mini-cassettes as used with the HP 1630 series logic analyzers and an 82161A tape drive. I don't know of any existing tools for imaging mini-cassettes, although I wouldn't be surprised if there are some out there somewhere.

    In addition to the 82169A HP-IL/HP-IB Interface and the Series 80 82938A HP-IL Interface that I have, I also have an ISA bus 82973A HP-IL Interface. Maybe it would be easiest to write some software for a PC to use the ISA bus 82973A HP-IL Interface to read and archive the data from a mini-cassette tape containing a 1630 series Inverse Assembler.

    These are tapes, not floppy disks, and the format is HP HP-IL, so until we get something to 'sniff' HP-IL transfers, we can't get to the files.

    It looks like the "ILvlif: A LIF media viewing tool" tool might do the trick for archiving a 82161A mini-cassette tape if you have a PIL-Box.

    Unfortunately I don't have a PIL-Box, so short of acquiring one of those I'd need to find something equivalent to use with an 82169A, 82938A, or 82973A HP-IL interfaces that I already have.

    I have a PIL-Box kit coming. After I assemble it, I'll try to use that tool to capture the tape files.
