What is the difference between ‘Burst to Probe’ and ‘Stream to Probe’?

What is the difference between ‘Burst to Probe’ and ‘Stream to Probe’?

‘Burst to Probe’ and ‘Stream to Probe’ are the 2 ‘Transfer Mode’ options available from EXOSTIV Analyzer to capture data.
Transfer mode selection in EXOSTIV Analyzer

Burst to Probe mode:
– Uses the capture unit FIFO to pre-store bursts of data.
– Waits until the transceivers are ready to transmit data to EXOSTIV Probe
– Defines capture sizes up to the size of the capture unit FIFO in powers of 2 (min. 32).

Hence, using ‘Burst to Probe’ limits the size of the capture but won’t create overflow.

Stream to Probe mode:
– Uses the capture unit FIFO as a simple buffer.
– Transmits data to EXOSTIV Probe in a round-robbin scheme.
– Defines any capture/burst size (up to the limit of the external EXOSTIV Probe memory allocated to the capture unit (1 / nr of capture units).
