I recently acquired the Promira Serial Platform with the SPI Active - Level 3 Application.  I will be using the SPI interface to erase, write, and read a Flash memory part repeatedly during an environmental test. Which software package should I use?

If you're just getting involved in the fast-growing and revolutionary field of IoT-enabled embedded systems development, one of the first things you'll notice is the wide range of communication protocol specifications being used in the industry. Wireless communication between IoT-enabled devices is a very new technology and lacks a consistent global standard for device communication and interoperability. As a result, there are specialized communications for all sorts of devices: long-range devices, short-range devices, devices that interact with each other, devices that interact with the server, and more. Developers can even take advantage of existing protocols when designing their IoT devices, for example with the 6LoWPAN protocol that leverages pre-existing IPv6 infrastructure.

Can I use the Promira Serial Platform to act as a master for the eSPI protocol? Would the eSPI Analysis Application work for this?

Cable testing has been known to be a costly and laborious undertaking when it comes to manufacturing cables. It sometimes requires hundreds of thousands of dollars invested into highly trained personnel and expensive equipment to ensure that each cable passes inspection, sometimes even requiring restructuring of production processes. With these concerns in mind, Total Phase has introduced a tool that combats these obstacles of expensive and hard to implement cable testing mechanisms. Find out why cable testing is an affordable and beneficial addition to your manufacturing processes with the Advanced Cable Tester v2:

Agile software development emerged in the early 2000s as a new paradigm for delivering quality software products that satisfy the needs of the business in a timely fashion. Throughout the 1990s, the application of traditional project management methodologies to software development products led to considerable frustration. The significant time lag between the establishment of project requirements and the finalized project delivery meant that the resultant software often failed to meet the needs of the business. Many software projects were canceled for this reason, and software developers began to wonder whether there was a better way to manage the product development process.

I am testing SPI slave memory chips on an in-house test board. Some of the products we design have voltage specifications of 1.2V or 1.8V VCC and VCCIO.  Can the Promira Serial Platform source target devices at those levels? My current understanding, the VCC target supply is limited to 3.3V or 5V. Is there a way to source the target 1.2V or 1.8V as needed?

Testing cables is one of the most importance aspects of cable production. There are multiple features and components within a cable that need to work correctly and safely, and verifying these can easily be missed or disregarded if the proper quality control is not implemented by manufacturing. Performing a set of comprehensive tests that include checks for continuity, DCR and IR drop, E-Marker verification, and signal integrity is vital to ensure safety and quality. Fortunately, Total Phase offers the ability to confidently test each of these with the Advanced Cable Tester v2.
