The Promira™ Serial Platform is our most advanced serial device ever. This new, powerful platform offers many benefits over our previous generation of host adapters:

  • Integrated level shifting ensures you'll be able to work at a variety of voltages ranging from 0.9 to 5.0 volts without needing any costly accessory boards.
  • High-speed USB connectivity to the host system provides high performance and convenience for benchtop programming, testing, and emulation.
  • Ethernet connectivity is convenient for benchtop work, and it also enables remote control for your automation needs.
  • With the ability to provide a total of 200 mA of power, Promira platform can easily power your project, simplifying connectivity and troubleshooting.
  • New architecture enables you to download applications to the Promira platform - Upgrade your device when you need new features and you'll never wait for that emergency delivery in the middle of your project.

Custom configure your Promira platform with any of the currently available applications:

With the I2C Active - Level 1 Application (licensed separately), I2C programming speeds are twice as fast as the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter. Featuring support for the I2C fast mode plus specification, Promira platform equipped with the I2C Active - Level 1 Application provides high speed I2C programming, high performance debugging, and superior emulation for your I2C protocol needs.

With the I2C Active - Level 2 Application (licensed separately), I2C programming speeds up to 3.4 MHz for Master and Slave. Featuring support for the I2C High Speed Mode specification, Promira platform equipped with the I2C Active - Level 2 Application provides high speed I2C programming, high performance debugging, and superior emulation for your I2C protocol needs.

With the SPI Active - Level 1 Application (licensed separately), SPI programming speeds are over eight times faster than the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter. Supporting clock speeds of up to 12.5 MHz for master and 8 MHz for slave functionality, Promira platform equipped with the SPI Active - Level 1 Application provides fast programming, ultra-high performance debugging and superior emulation for your SPI protocol needs.

With the SPI Active - Level 2 Application (licensed separately), SPI programming speeds are even faster than before - supporting clock speeds of up to 40 MHz for master and 20 MHz for slave functionality, Promira platform equipped with the SPI Active - Level 2 Application provides fast programming, ultra-high performance debugging and superior emulation for your SPI protocol needs.

With the SPI Active - Level 3 Application (licensed separately), SPI programming speeds are even faster than before - supporting clock speeds of up to 80 MHz for master and 20 MHz for slave functionality, Promira platform equipped with the SPI Active - Level 3 Application provides fast programming, ultra-high performance debugging and superior emulation for your SPI protocol needs. The eSPI Active Example files also show you how to use your SPI Active licensed Promira Serial Platform to act as a master for the eSPI protocol.

With the eSPI Analysis Application (licensed separately), you will be able to monitor eSPI communication, including monitoring communication between a master and slave on accross the data lines, 5 channels (peripheral, virtual wire, OOB, Flash, Independent), 2 alert lines, 2 reset lines and more. The eSPI Active Example files also show you how to use your SPI Active licensed Promira Serial Platform to act as a master for the eSPI protocol.

With the Advanced Cable Tester - Level 1 Application (licensed separately),you have the ability to do critical safety testing for Type-C and other USB cables, checking continuity, power handling, and E-Marker behavior.

With the Advanced Cable Tester - Level 2 Application (licensed separately), you get everything from the Advanced Cable Tester - Level 1 Application, plus data throughput measurement at up to 12GBit/s. Signal Integrity tests all SuperSpeed and USB2 pairs to verify they meet the relevant specifications. Testing is done at 518 Mb for USB2, and at 5 Gb, 10 Gb, or even up to 12 Gb for SuperSpeed lines.

All applications include one full year of software maintenance.  As long as your software maintenance is current, you can take advantage of our five-star support. Any time you purchase a new application for your Promira Serial Platform, we'll automatically extend the software maintenance for all applications that have current maintenance support (applications that are out of support do not receive this benefit, so it's always best to keep the maintenance current on your applications). That means if you purchase one new application per year, all your applications will be eligible for software support. Don't worry - if your software support is about to expire, we'll let you know and you'll have the option of purchasing continued software support.

The Performance of the Promira Serial Platform is determined by apllications licensed for a specific unit.
