PC-based logic analysers added to our range

A logic analyser is an invaluable debugging tool during the development of digital circuits, and these high quality products from Janatek Electronic Designs offer excellent value for money and ease of use.
The models range from 8 to 32 input channels, and feature sampling rates of up to 1GHz, and huge 1 Meg samples per channel data buffers.
They are designed for accurate measurements and the very best signal integrity; the high sampling rates available provide a more accurate representation of captured signals than is usually possible. The 1 Meg samples per channel buffer depth allows longer captures without lowering the sampling frequency, thus maintaining sampling resolution.
The combination of these two features is difficult to beat, being especially useful for capturing high and relatively low frequency signals simultaneously.
The analysers also feature integrated pattern generators to help diagnosis, and connect to the PC via the USB port, so avoiding the inconvenience of external power supplies.
The software for the analysers is intuitive, very easy to understand and gives the user one-button access to most of the advanced features. It includes a wide range of triggering options, and includes the ability to print or save to disk captured screen data. It is mature, reliable and user friendly, and incorporates valuable improvements suggested by past users.
This all means that now small companies and even individuals can afford to benefit from the diagnostic power of these logic analysers, all of which come with our lifetime support service by phone or email.
Free demonstration software is available from our website:

TTL(3v3) to USB converter cable

This accessory is a good example of a product which has resulted from customer feedback. A potential customer rang with the need for such a converter cable, and by the following day we had settled on a design, and a few days later shipped it to him.

The result is a handy converter cable which enables an application program running on a PC to receive and transmit serial data on a circuit board operating at 3V3 TTL logic levels. (For further details visit our website using the link opposite, and click on "USB converter cables").

We are always looking for new requirements, so if you have a similar type of need, please do contact us using , or give us a ring on +44(0)1425 650089.

New Breakout Box

We have recently added a new breakout box to our range - this is the one for the "RS-530" standard, and full details can be found under the "Breakout boxes" heading on our website. (Click on the link to the right).

This is a good example of customer feedback - to be honest we had never heard of RS-530 before, but a potential customer rang and asked if we could supply a couple of these. We quickly verified that we could source them, and within a few days they were with him.

So, far from us having to push this product, we had been asked for something we didn't even sell! So naturally we have now added it to our website.

Similarly, if you require a variation to our range which we don't already supply, please do let us know, and we will be only too pleased to see if we can supply it for you. Please contact us by adding a comment below, or emailing us directly -


Welcome to the New Forest Electronics discussion forum.

New Forest Electronics has always been very keen to receive feedback from existing users and potential customers - this new facility has been created to help that process. Please do feel free to add your comments.
