Clarinet Pocket: Product Overview

Standard Features

A new concept of PDA: the Protocol Diagnostic Assistant


Clarinet Pocket is the latest concept for a new modular protocol tester to allow for simple, fast and effective testing of protocol over networks interfaces. This hand-held tester provides manufacturers, service providers and contractors who have significant numbers of LAN and WAN interfaces to commission, configure and maintain with a rapid and accurate means of determining the suitability of the protocol exchanges.


The Microsoft® Windows® Powered Compaq iPAQ™ Pocket PC 3835 combines the longest battery life and fastest processor available with massive memory speeds and unprecedented storage capacity to take advantage of a wealth of new features.

The CSA program provides its members with the support to port and optimize existing applications to run on Compaq high-performance platforms.
