Quickly Design and Verify I2C Prototypes with the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter, a Beagle I2C/SPI Protocol Analyzer and an API Script

Total Phase tools are well-known for analysis, trouble-shooting and debugging, as well as programming and testing devices on the production floors – do you know how well our tools work for prototyping and debugging new design concepts? Here is an example of how two easy-to-use tools; the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter and the Beagle I2C/SPI Pro...

Use the Total Phase Promira Serial Platform or the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter in All Stages of the Product Life Cycle

How nice would it be to use the same tools for all phases of the product life cycle, from development to production to field support? Imagine a phase-to-phase transition that doesn’t require new tool validation. The Promira Serial Platform is so versatile that you can use it during design, release, manufacturing and support.

How Do I Capture USB Data Streams from a Remote Location for Test and Analysis at the Local Office?

Question from the Customer:

We are going to test new software that interacts with several low-speed serial devices over the USB bus. The hardware is offsite, not at our local office. Is it possible to capture USB data streams with the Beagle 12 USB Protocol Analyzer from a remote location and analyze it at another location? Also, how many Beagl...

How Can We Utilize the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter as an I2C Slave with an Embedded Device on a Development Board?

Question from the Customer:

We are considering the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter for development - using it as an I2C slave device and have some questions:

  1. Can the Aardvark adapter accept the I2C signal driven from the I2C client driver of an embedded device on a development board running Linux? What is the hardware connection from the develop...

How Do I Debug SMBus Communication between my Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter and a Smart Battery Pack?

Question from the Customer:

I am using the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter and I am trying to connect it to the SMBus compatible NL2020 Standard Smart Li Ion Battery Pack. Unfortunately, I’m not getting an acknowledgement from the battery after executing a read/write command.  Here are the details of my application:

Sending CAN Messages From Komodo CAN Duo Interface Channel and Monitoring It With The Other Channel Using Komodo GUI and Data Center

Did you know that with the Komodo CAN Duo Interface you can record activity on the bus and export the trace in a format that allows you to edit and make modifications? Once you've done that, you can replay the modified data to simulate changes to your system. I wanted to make sure you were aware of this unique feature of our CAN tool. This featu...
