I have the I2C Development Kit and I am trying to use Flash Center Software to program an I2C target device, Macronix MX25U6435F.  I checked the datasheet and found its power input is 1.8V.  I’m concerned the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter can only output 5V. According to the datasheet, this I2C device can withstand up to 5.5V, but I really do not want to push its limits. Can you confirm that the Aardvark adapter is suitable for programming this device? Are there other options I can use?

Quality assurance teams that work with embedded systems are adopting test automation solutions in record numbers to deal with the immense challenges associated with properly QA testing embedded systems. When it comes to IoT devices, the multitude of platforms and devices working within the environment makes a manual approach to product testing nearly impossible, and the growing number of IoT devices around the world is forcing QA teams to adopt test automation solutions sooner rather than later.

Digital technology has advanced leaps and bounds in an extremely short time frame. The first IBM personal computers were released in 1982 and personal computing became a worldwide phenomenon in just a few years, showing the massive impact of technology.

The holiday season is around the corner, which means we’ll be spending more time in the kitchen, especially during Thanksgiving when food is the epicenter of the festivities! Because the kitchen is considered a hub for many people as they cook and enjoy time with friends and family, is it easy to see why much of the new technology is focused on creating better cooking and living experiences in the home.

I’m looking into used your Promira Serial Platform as a QSPI master to communicate with our chip. Before I get started, I’d to know these capabilities with the Promira platform:

For those unfamiliar, an embedded system is a combination of computer hardware and software. Like all computers, embedded systems run on a hardware platform that is built around a microcontroller or a microprocessor. They also include other features like a power supply, timers, internal memory, and serial communication ports that allow them to interface with other systems. Embedded systems are highly modular in their structure and applications, but all serve the same core purpose: to coordinate and execute tasks according to a predefined set of rules.

I am running tests with the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter using the Aardvark API Software. I have a question about the API Master Write-Read command aa_i2c_write_read. I input eight values using Arg 8 (in_data) to an array, but when I display array[0] and [1] to different elements, they show the same value. Let’s say I input 4 bytes, {00,11,22,33}  - what is the data sequence – what exactly should I read back?

Embedded systems engineers (ESEs) can be some of the most talented people we meet. On top of the rich educational background and skill set of an embedded systems engineer, which includes expertise in computer programming, electrical engineering, and systems design and security, they are also responsible for many of the latest life-changing innovations that are shaping the world today and the future of tomorrow.

I am developing a production line functional test that requires programming a part. The test software launches the programming software and then prompts the test operator to press a pass or fail button to confirm whether or not the part programmed correctly.
