FireSpy® IEEE-1394 and AS5643 Bus Analyzers
A commitment to Technology and Innovation

A Mindset and Vision

At DapTechnology we breath - and dream of - "FireSpy". Since the early beginning of the company FireSpys have been at the forefront of our corporate endeveour, our corporate philosophy and the quest to bring leading edge into the market. FireSpys have shaped the company in a way that wasn't thought to be possible: even after 20 years the IEEE-1394 bus Analyzers are still DapTechnology's #1 product and continue to spark excitement as well as innovation within the engineering team.
FireSpys are also a commitment for DapTechnology, a commitment to technology innovation, to highest level of quality as well as the promise to deliver products with outstanding cost-to-performance ratio. We pride ourselves to constantly add new features to the product line and make the analyzers even more powerful.

A Product Success Story

By all means FireSpy analyzers have to be seen as an extremely successful product. Back in the days of a thriving IEEE-1394 momentum the first generation of FireSpys was born and conquered the market. With their initial releases in 2000 and 2003 the FireSpy400 and FireSpy800 have defined new standards for 1394 data analysis. Their unmatched feature set and the outstanding price/performance ratio of the FireSpys have made them the most commonly used 1394 data analyzers on the market. We have now reached the 4th generation in the evolution of FireSpys. They are more powerful than ever before!

FireDiagnostics Suite - The SW & FW Engine

The FireDiagnostics Suite is the most comprehensive collection of 1394 analysis, simulation and interface tools for a wide range of applications. Apart from well established and hardware assisted analyzer tools like Monitor, Recorder, Generator, Commander and Scriptor, the suite also offers a set of software tools designed to allow the integration of the FireSpy products in a wide variety of testing applications, as well as extend customization of its functionality beyond the baseline feature set provided by DapTechnology.

The foundation for all software tools included in the FireDiagnostics Suite is formed by the Application Programming Interface (API). With its interfaces for a wide range of development environments using either C/C++ or LabVIEWTM and support for the Windows operating system, the application of FireSpy analyzers is extremely flexible. With its feature-rich function library, all hardware-assisted analyzer tools like the Recorder and Generator can be controlled as well as more low-level 1394 bus functions.

A cornerstone of FireDiagnostics Suite functionality is the unparalleled level of support for high-level protocols. With IEEE-1394 being the basic data exchange mechanism application-specific protocols for the PC & storage environment (IPv4, SBP2), consumer electronics (AV/C, HAVi), Automotive Infotainment  (AMI-C), Industrial Imaging (IIDC) have been successfully deployed. In recent years AS5643 has been adopted for use within Aerospace and Defense and largely fueled the continuous growth of IEEE-1394.

FireSpy Hardware - Powerful and optimized

FireSpy hardware has gone through several iterations and we have now arrived at the 4th generation. We attempt to always deploy the best and most advanced technologies in order to provide the very best functionality to our customers.

With enormous amounts of data transferred on a 1394 bus, engineers need powerful tools to understand and analyze transactions between nodes. The FireSpy family of analyzers encompass small, powerful devices. Over the years, a rather large variety of analyzers have been developed in order to meet the industries' demands. With rising analysis demands also the analyzer platforms have been updated. Our latest hardware and firmware platform comprises the most powerful data analysis and storage platform so far.
