The Saleae Logic Pro 16 is a USB 3.0-based, 16-channel logic analyzer with 500/100MHz sampling rate (at 4/16 enabled channels) and analog sampling support on all 16 channels.

It is part of the second-generation Saleae Logic series, which consists of the Logic 4, Logic 8, Logic Pro 8 and Logic Pro 16. See Saleae Logic and Saleae Logic16 for the predecessor products.

The case requires a Torx T9 screwdriver to open.

See Saleae Logic Pro 16/Info for more details (such as lsusb -v output) about the device.

Note: Saleae Logic Pro 16 support in sigrok should be considered experimental for now. Only the logic analyzer parts are currently implemented (analog sampling is not).


There are several testpoints on the underside of the PCB. It is not yet certain what these are for. There is no visible JTAG header.



You can use the sigrok-fwextract-saleae-logic16 (sic!) tool to extract (from the "Logic" Linux binary; tested with the Saleae 1.2.10 software) the FX3 firmware and the FPGA bitstreams required for using the Saleae Logic Pro 16:

$ sigrok-fwextract-saleae-logic16 Logic
saved 5217 bytes to saleae-logic16-fx2.fw
saved 149516 bytes to saleae-logic16-fpga-18.bitstream

saved 341160 bytes to saleae-logicpro8-fpga.bitstream

Copy these files to the directory where your libsigrok installation expects them (usually /usr/local/share/sigrok-firmware) and they will be found and used automatically by the libsigrok saleae-logic-pro driver.
