Total Phase at DesignCon 2019 - SPI, I2C, and USB at Its Finest
Derek Cooper

This past week, Total Phase exhibited at DesignCon 2019 in Santa Clara, California. It was also my first tradeshow for Total Phase in this industry.

The first day saw an extremely high volume of traffic and engaging conversations with engineering professionals from the “who’s who” of Silicon Valley technology companies, not to mention attendees from outside California.

Total Phase Showcased I2C, SPI, USB and CAN Bus Tools

On display at the Total Phase booth were demonstrations of our Promira Serial Platform, coupled with the Beagle I2C/SPI Protocol Analyzer; the Beagle USB 480 Power Protocol Analyzer was also showcased. Additional products such as the Advanced Cable Tester, Beagle USB 5000 v2 SuperSpeed Protocol Analyzer, and Komodo CAN Duo Interface were also on display.

Many happy current and previous customers made time to stop by our booth, and it was refreshing to hear numerous accounts from satisfied customers. Conversations were heavy on I2C and SPI development and debugging given the nature of the audience, but there were also many folks interested and intrigued by USB monitoring and USB Type-C testing. Early news of our Advanced Cable Tester v2 had spread to a few key customers and seeds were already planted for initial interest. There were also inquiries about new protocols and technological advancements including I3C and USB 3.2 Gen 2.

When all is said and done, it was an extremely productive and enlightening show for Total Phase. We look forward to future DesignCon events and engaging with our customers both existing and prospective.  You can find Total Phase next at the USB-IF Workshop in Burlingame, California and then at Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany.

If you are finding challenges with effectively debugging common serial protocols such as I2C, SPI, USB, CAN, A2B, or eSPI, or you are one of many companies who are concerned with the safety and reliability of next generation USB cables, then please contact us at  sales@totalphase.com. We’d love to help!
