How Do I Connect the Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer to Monitor USB Traffic on Embedded Copper Traces?

Question from the Customer:

We have a product with a processor that is connected to a peripheral device via high-speed USB. The processor and the peripheral are on the same board and the USB lines are connected by copper traces. We want to monitor the USB traffic with our Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer. Because the USB signal lines between th...

Using the Beagle I2C/SPI Protocol Analyzer, How Do I Capture and Filter a Specific Bit Pattern to View Only the Data That I Need to See on the SPI Bus?

Question from the Customer:

I’m using the Beagle I2C/SPI Protocol Analyzer and I could use some advice. I am testing SPI devices, transmitting and receiving 14 bytes of data; each pair (MISO and MOSI) is exchanged during the single byte transfer. The data is bidirectional – I’m receiving data from the master and sending the master a byte o...

How Do I Share SPI Traces Captured with a Beagle I2C/SPI Protocol Analyzer with a Colleague in Another Office?

Question from the Customer:

I'm working on a project with a colleague who is in a different geographic location. He has collected data capture containing SPI traces from your Beagle I2C/SPI Protocol Analyzer and shared a .tdc file with me. I don’t have the analyzer or any other Total Phase products – how can I open this capture file?

How Can I Optimize Programming Multiple Images into Different Sectors of an SPI Flash Memory?

Question from the Customer:

I saw your knowledge base article that describes how to program multiple images into SPI flash at a different offset, and I used it for the Aardvark I2CSPI Host Adapter: Programming a Single Sector of an SPI Flash Using the Cheetah Adapter and Flash Center. I followed the instructions in that article, but found the wr...

How Do I Change the Default Bit Rate Setting on the Cheetah SPI Host Adapter for my SPI Memory Devices?

Question from the Customer:

I just started using the Cheetah SPI Host Adapter with the Flash Center Software and it works really well. I have a question about the bit rate speed. I don't always need the default bit rate speed of 50,000 kHz. In fact, most of the time, 40,000 kHz works with the SPI memory devices I control and program. A few dev...

How Many SPI Slave Devices Can I Control with one Promira Serial Platform, and How Can I Use the LabVIEW and Matlab Software Applications?

Question from the Customer:

I have three Aardvark SPI/I2C Host Adapters that I have been using to control three SPI slave devices. I'm starting a design where I'll need to control more than thee SPI devices - what are my options? Can the Promira Serial Platform provide multiple SPI slave select (SS) signals? Also, similar to the Aardvark adapter...
