Support Question of the Week: How Do I Configure Conditions for a USB Protocol Analyzer to Capture Data and Stop when Errors Occur?

I plan to run a design verification tests (DVT) for long periods. For part of the DVT, I'll need to continue running the test and capture data as errors occur. For another part of the DVT, I'll need to capture data and stop running the test when an error occurs. Which USB protocol analyzer do you recommend, and how can I run and capture the ...

Support Question of the Week: Did You Know You Can Batch Program I2C Memory Devices With the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter and Total Phase Software?

You can batch program devices using the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter and any of the following applications: the Control Center Software, the Flash Center Software or the Aardvark Software API. Following is a summary of the example provided in our latest knowledge base article, Programming I2C EEPROM using Aardvark Adapter and Control Cent...

Support Question of the Week: How Can I Make Third Party Open Source Software Work with the Komodo CAN Duo Interface?

I am developing an interface for a planter that is connected to a tractor with a display monitor via CAN bus. For the agricultural industry, I found an open source program (ISOAgLib) that could work with for this, but that program was created for a different device. We already have and use the Komodo interfaces - can I use the Komodo API to...

Support Question of the Week: How Can I Use a Single SPI Host Adapter to Control SPI Devices with Different Bitrates and Command Lengths?

I have two different SPI devices and I need to transmit two different command settings. Because of the separate SS (slave select) signal pins, it looks like a Cheetah host adapter should work with this.
The two SPI devices that I intend to control with the Cheetah adapter have different command lengths:

  • SS1 requires a 72-bit command
  • SS2 req...

Support Question of the Week: How do I Configure the Cheetah SPI Host Adapter For a Half-Duplex 3-wire SPI Slave Device?

I plan to use the Cheetah SPI Host Adapter for a half-duplex 3-wire SPI slave device. Can the Cheetah adapter be configured to interface with a 3-wire SPI? Is there anything special I would need to do?

Thanks for your question! The Cheetah SPI Host Adapter can be used with 3-wire SPI slave devices. Although it refers to the Aardvark I2C/SPI ...

Support Question of the Week: How Do I Communicate to the Komodo CAN Duo Interface with a Graphical IDE other than LabVIEW?

I am trying to communicate to the Komodo CAN Duo Interface device using the Keysight VEE software - a graphical IDE that is similar to National Instrument's LabVIEW. VEE cannot import in "enum" types. There is a Komodo LabVIEW Driver for the Komodo devices and VEE is similar to LabVIEW . My question - can Komodo software be modified to wor...
