DigiView™ Logic Analyzer Searches

Powerful Search Features

Analyzer Data Searching
DigiView provides a general search type for pattern matches, a Sequential Frame and Sequential Field search for parsed signals and a Search Manager to quickly perform multiple searches and change criteria.


Since DigiView Logic Analyzers can capture millions of screens of data in a single capture, powerful search capabilities are a necessity; not a luxury.

DigiView provides a general search type for pattern matches, a Sequential Frame and Sequential Field search for parsed signals and a Search Manager to quickly perform multiple searches and change criteria.

Any defined search can be utilized for Auto Searching while capturing, post searching and searching the complete Capture History stored on disk. Auto searching can also halt the Analyzer when in Auto Capture mode or determine when to save specific captures to the Capture History.

DigiView provides the following search features:

  • General Search - DigiView provides a Pattern Search to locate Patterns across multiple channels.

  • Field Match Editor
    Above is an example of a Field with more than 1 value (from the SPI signal type).

    The three buttons on the bottom left of a field term are for deleting the current term (-), adding a new term below the current one (+) or creating and adding a duplicate of the current term (Copy).

    Sequential Frame and Field search - Sequential Searches use the field names and data from any parsed signal selected, even if it is a custom plug-in created with our free PDK (examples included). Sequential searches can find a specific sequence of field values (including skipping field counts or using "Don't Care" values) within framed or unframed data. If searching framed data, a sequence of frames can be searched (including skipping a frame count) using a specific field sequence for each frame (a sequence across multiple frames, where the frame contents of each frame meets its own sequence criteria) .

  • Search Manager - The search manager window shows a list of all defined searches, provides quick access for seaching and can be used to add, delete, copy or edit searches.

  • Auto Search Windows - Auto Search Windows are used to activate a search automatically when capturing data or browsing through the capture history. Auto Search Windows provide features to halt the analyzer or prevent specific captures from being added to the capture history.

  • Search Capture History feature - With the Capture History Search feature, any search can be selected to search the entire capture history and load the file that meets the selected match count criteria. Searching can be continued forward or backward from the position matched.
