The SIG60/61 test software and its SIG60 USB PC interfaces together with SIG60/61 evaluation boards are the evaluation environment of SIG60 DC-BUS system. One SIG60 evaluation board with its USB interface generate predetermined test messages. These messages are modulated over the DC power line. At the receiving side, a SIG60 evaluation board receives these messages, transfer them to the PC via the USB interface. The DC-BUS Test software analyze the received messages, measures the communication bit error rate and display the results on the PC screen.
The program modes of operations are:
Transmit and receive data in Hex or ASCII formats
Transmit and receive Test pattern and perform BER measurements
Set the SIG60 operating parameters
Command remote SIG61 slave devices (only with the USB-SIG60 interface)
The SIG60 USB interface supplied with the test program has also stand alone capabilities to generate test messages, saving the need for a PC at the transmitting side. When not connected to USB cable, the USB interface analyzes the SIG60 received messages for byte errors that activates its LED. It is a useful tool for quick testing and specially useful in EMC chamber tests.
