Featured Customers:
Everyone is now using Bus Hound in our lab and I think that it has now become a "must have" tool. I am always hearing people ask the critical question "Did you get a Bus Hound trace of that event?"

"Thank you for the great software. It provided just the proof I needed to get my hardware subcontractor to fix their product's firmware. It worked as advertised and at a price MUCH lower than a full-blown SCSI-bus hardware analyzer. Thanks again and keep up the good work!"
