I just got a Tek 803 Data Analyzer from what looks like the mid 1980s. It's pretty neat, except I have absolutely no idea how to get it to properly free-run capture logic. I've gone through the manual but it left me even more confused than when I started. I'm hoping to just let it run and capture some i2c logic, but that seems to be beyond my grasp.

Anyone have any experience with the Tek 803? I'd love to pick your brain.

I don't know the 803 model, but there is a tiny Sony Tektronix 308 analyzer. If it's a model you talked about then yes, it's a bit tricky to use. It's a very first data analyzer from Sony Tektronix, and the human interface is really counter intuitive.
Pleass take a look on a nice open source project:

I understand that it supports i2c and spi analysis.

Yeah, thank you I meant the 308, I'm not sure how I managed to type it incorrectly not just once, not just twice, but three times in the same post.

Thanks for the link. I think at this price I'm going to pick up one of those and not bother with this Tek analyzer. I finally got it to do some proper measurements but it's so old and outdated that it's basically unusable.
