Record Viewer
With the Record Viewer you can process, post-edit and analyze signaling
data you have recorded with a Tektronix protocol tester.
All protocols can be decoded to the same depth as on the protocol tester
and with all search and filter functions. With the record viewer you can use
the customized filter configurations which you have created on the K15
and vice versa. The signaling data can also be stored as text files or printed
out.
The user interface of the Record Viewer is more or less identical to the
K15 software. For easier handling only unnecessary program parts are
masked out.
The Record Viewer can be installed on a PC running Windows 2000,
Windows NT 4.0, or Windows 98/ME.
NOTE. You can also process K1205, K1297, K1197 and K1103 recording
files with the Record Viewer.
