To Run SPI Tests at a Higher Speed, How Do I Set Up Ethernet Connectivity and the Async Queue for the Promira Serial Platform?

Question from the Customer:

I am using the Promira Serial Platform to run tests and evaluations on the SPI bus of my application. I would like to do some benchmark testing over the Ethernet port. I have a few questions about the setup:

  • For connecting to the Promira platform over Ethernet, do I use a switch or connect directly to the comput...

Use the Beagle I2C/SPI Protocol Analyzers and Total Phase Software API to Accurately Monitor SPI Devices

Question from the Customer:

I will be using two Beagle I2C/SPI Protocol Analyzers to monitor SPI devices, the data from two A/D converters. I will be using the Beagle Software API and C#. Normally, I only use one Beagle analyzer - I have some questions about doing this and about the data measurements.

  • How do I identify each Beagle? I need ...

How to Select Which USB Protocol Analyzer to Use to Monitor Output Conditions on the USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 Bus

Question from the Customer:

We have the Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer  and it’s worked really well for us. We’re starting a new project that requires toggling one of the output-signals when there are specific conditions such as when the packet length=6. For these capabilities, looking at the specifications, it looks like we need to u...

Which Beagle USB Protocol Analyzers Provide an External Trigger to Test a USB Response?

Question from the Customer:

I need to measure timing from an event that produces a USB response in our device. I can trigger a scope off of the edge of the event but I need another trigger when the correct packet is produced on the USB. Which one of the Beagle protocol analyzers do you recommend to recognize a byte or a series of bytes and t...

What are the SPI Timing Requirements for the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter to Communicate Properly with an SPI Slave Device?

Question from the Customer:

I am using the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter in SPI/GPIO mode as a slave. I set up a MISO message in the Control Center software (I’m using Windows), and the transaction log indicates that the MISO data is written on the bus.

MISO Data, SPI GPIO Figure 1: MISO Data

However, when I use a scope on the SPI lines, the MISO line seem...

Using the Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer and the Data Center Software to Capture Views and Measure Timing of IN-NAKs

Question from the Customer:

I am using the Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer for USB 2.0 captures. I’m trying to get information and measure timing of every IN-NAK at a specific point on an existing capture file. Using the Data Center Software, I can only get the timing of the first IN-NAK. How do I get the timing of the17th IN-NAK, which i...
