Support Question of the Week: How do I Set Up and Identify Multiple Cheetah SPI Host Adapters for Programming SPI Devices?

We have a new product in development that will contain a new Microsemi FPGA device and the Micron Flash N25Q00AA13G1240E - both need to be programmed. They will be built into a panel, eight to a panel. I am developing a test box that will connect to a minimum of four devices. I have some questions:

  • With multiple Cheetah adapters connected, how...

Support Question of the Week: Which SPI Host Adapter and Which Software Should I Use for Gang Programming?

I will be programming Serial flash and I see that your Cheetah and Aardvark host adapters both support SPI programming. I have two questions:

  1. Which is more appropriate for gang programming in-system, Cheetah or Aardvark? I want to hook up multiple devices to one computer and program in parallel. The device we will be using is a Micron N25Q00AA1...

Question of the Week: What are the features of the Komodo CAN interface and the software used with it?

We are starting to use the KomodoTM CAN Duo Interface - it is very easy to set up and use. We like the activity LEDs and the choice of connectors. The ability to make the device active or passive is also useful. We have a few questions about the Komodo:

  1. What controls the operation of the PWR (Power) LEDs on the unit? We're not sure what causes...

Support Question of the Week: How Do You Transfer SPI Data Using the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter and LabVIEW?

Today's article is based on a new Knowledge Base article, Sending SPI Messages Between Two Aardvark adapters Using Aardvark LabVIEW.

The AardvarkTM I2C/SPI Host Adapter is often used with LabVIEW to transfer SPI data. The Aardvark LabVIEW Driver supports the Windows operating system and includes examples. You can use the Aardvark LabVIEW Driver...

Support Question of the Week: Using the Beagle USB Protocol Analyzer, How Do I Capture Large Data Streams Overnight?

I'm working on a project where I need to continuously capture data - I'll be running the system overnight with the BeagleTM USB 480 Protocol Analyzer. My questions:

  • How much data can the Beagle USB protocol analyzer capture?
  • Running the system overnight, will all data be captured?
  • What do I need to set up or configure to do this?

Thanks f...

Support Question of the Week: How can I use LabVIEW with the Cheetah SPI Host Adapter to transfer large amounts of data at high-speeds?

I have an SPI device that supports continuous read/write, and its format is not standard. The size of data for this device is approximate 1Mbit. Because the format is not standard, I plan to use LabVIEW so I can modify the SPI header to match the device that will drive. I have been using the AardvarkTM I2C/SPI Host Adapter, but for the higher da...

Support Question of the Week: How do I use the Data Center Software with the Komodo CAN Interface to Generate and Capture CAN Bus statistics?

We are using a KomodoTM CAN Duo Interface and Data CenterTM Software.  We need to generate CAN Bus statistics for the following:

  1. Error Rate (either % or per/time)
  2. Packets / Time
  3. Bus Usage % (time packets on bus / time bus free)

Can you provide us information about obtaining this information for CAN bus statistics?

Thanks for your question!...

Support Question of the Week: Using the Aardvark Host Adapter API Software, How Does the Slave Select Signal (SS) Work with MOSI Data and Multiple SPI Slave Devices?

 

I am using the AardvarkTM I2C/SPI Host Adapter as an SPI master with multiple slave devices. Can you clarify how the  Aardvark API Software command aa_spi_write() works?

Is Slave Select asserted for each byte sent MOSI (master output slave input)?
-or-
Is Slave Select asserted for each byte sent MOSI (master output slave input)?
