Support Question of the Week: How do I use the API Software for the Cheetah SPI Host Adapter to Filter Data from an SPI Slave Device?

We are using the CheetahTM SPI Host Adapter with an SPI slave device. This slave device sends FF bytes on MISO as long as it is busy (somewhat similar to  the clock-stretch for I2C), and if it is ready a first byte != FF byte is sent at mark 4. From then on, the data is the valid payload of interest that we want at read-data. The problem we h...

Support Question of the Week: Which Software Should I Use to Monitor MDIO with the Beagle I2C/SPI Protocol Analyzer?

I will be using the BeagleTM I2C/SPI Protocol Analyzer to monitor MDIO (Management Data Input/Output).  Can you advise which Total Phase software tool to use to monitor MDIO? That feature does not seem to be available in the most current version of Data CenterTM Software. What are my options?

Thank you for your question! The current version of ...

Support Question of the Week: How do I set up the Beagle I2C/SPI Protocol Analyzer to analyze a 1.8V I2C device with the Level Shifter Board?

We have a BeagleTM I2C/SPI Protocol Analyzer and are using it with the Level Shifter Board. The target is a 1.8V I2C device and we're trying to set it up with an external power supply - not provide power from the Beagle analyzer. We believe we have it set up correctly, but the Data CenterTM Software shows no activity. Our setup is as follows:

Support Question of the Week: When does the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter Enable Clock Stretching?

We are using the AardvarkTM I2C SPI Host Adapter as an I2C slave to test a master I2C port on another device. It appears the Aardvark adapter is using clock stretch while it is configured as a slave. Can you tell us what causes clock stretching - when we should expect to see that feature?

The Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter is a powerful and economical general-purpose host adapter for I2C and SPI circuits Figure 1: Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter

 

Thanks for yo...

Support Question of the Week: What are the latest SPI Flash device support updates for the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter and Flash Center Software?

I have been using the AardvarkTM I2C/SPI Host Adapter and version 1.20 of the Flash CenterTM Software.  
For the Spansion SPI flash device, Spansion chip (S25FL256S), I have been using a Total Phase XML file that I modified for that device.

What new devices does the new version of the Flash Center Software support directly?

Thanks for your qu...

Support Question of the Week - How can I Automatically Synchronize the Komodo CAN Duo Interface with the Bus and Log the Data?

I need to analyze and simulate a CAN-driven display system used for elevators. The display receives CAN commands and displays the floor number and other information. I don't know the bus details, such as speed and ID. My question - can the Komodo CAN Duo Interface automatically synchronize with the bus and log the data?

Thanks for your questi...

Support Question of the Week: What Software Should We Use with the Komodo CAN Duo Interface to Collect Real-Time Data?

We are working on an automotive application, and we will be using the KomodoTM CAN Duo Interface. We also have the Data CenterTM Software that was provided with the Komodo.

This purpose of the application is to be able to trouble-shoot the radio outside of the vehicle.  A module that is integrated in the vehicular system controls the radio.  ...
