About the Serial Port Monitor and Analyzer

Serial Port Monitor and Analyzer (Model: AKM-RSM-100) (From now on, it will be described as "AKM-RSM-100".) is the application software of the simplified monitor, simplified analyzer, and simplified debugger for the Serial Port (Asynchronous Serial Interface [ASYNC]) which is actuated on the PC

The AKM-RSM-100 will provide the following fully useful tools by the high cost-performance to the developer (such as the software technician) of the communications application which Serial Port (Asynchronous Serial Interface [ASYNC]) was used for.


Even if interface is RS-422 or RS-485, the AKM-RSM-100 is available if Port Device is recognized on the Windows OS as the "COM Port" (COM1~COM32).
*Note: When you use AKM-RSM-100 in RS-485, be careful of the setting of the terminator (Network design).


Of course, Trial use is available.
Please purchase the license after confirming contents and actuation of the functions fully by the trial use.
*Note: There are the following actuation limitations in the trial use.
    (1) The one actuation stops in about one minute.
    (2) The time limit of the trial use is by the end of next month.
But, there is no function limitation at all.


Caution: This Application is not available in the Synchronous Serial Interface [SYNC].

General Description

(1) Line Monitor function
This function monitors the communications data and the signal line status change of the Serial Port (Asynchronous Serial Interface [ASYNC]).
[Display Image]

Example of characters display (Minimum)           Example of hexadecimal system display (Minimum)
(2) The Support function of Debugging
These functions will do help of the "Increase in efficiency of the development" and the "Solution of the trouble" about the communications application which the Serial Port (Asynchronous Serial Interface [ASYNC]) is being used for. (These functions are being called the "Support of Debugging".).
(3) Enhanced Twin Buffer Control Mechanism
The unique buffer control mechanism of Akiyama Manufacturing will keep stable workings always.
(4) Setting of the communications speed by the manual input
Even if you want the communications speed except for the ready-made speed, the AKM-RSM-100 can be applied in the wide field because the setting of the communications speed by manual input can be done.
*Note: Serial Port must support the inputted communications speed.
*Note: Numerical value to maximum 9 columns are available.
  (a) High throughput PC is necessary for the line monitor of the Mega-bps.
  
(b) We verified a line monitor with 4Mbps by using FT232HL chip.
  (c) Unfortunately, the overrun error happened frequently in the line monitor of 12Mbps because our PC wasn't enough for the throughput. However, we verified that the next functions were actuated normally by using 12Mbps. (Replay, Simulation, Send Fixed Data Continuously (in one direction), Sending Manual Data)
