Total Phase at DesignCon 2020: The Need for Speed!

This past week, Total Phase exhibited at the DesignCon 2020 conference at the Santa Clara Convention Center.  This was the 25th Anniversary of this highly well-known and established event!

Total Phase booth and staff

Day one saw a very nice swell of traffic and great conversations with current, happy Total Phase customers and extremely savvy test engineers from some of the most esteemed Bay Area (and outside) tech companies.

On display at the Total Phase booth were live demonstrations of our Promira Serial Platform coupled with the Beagle I2C/SPI Protocol Analyzer, the Beagle USB 480 Power Protocol Analyzer, and the Advanced Cable Tester v2.

A common theme we heard from customers centered on a “Need for Speed”. We had many inquiries into which solutions could interface at higher I2C and SPI speeds along with USB 3.1 and even the impending USB4! Perhaps this new wave of inquiries signals a trend and change in existing serial protocol testing environments.  For those customers searching for higher speed I2C and SPI testing capabilities, check out the Promira Serial Platform.

When all is said and done, it was an extremely productive show for Total Phase. We look forward to future DesignCon events and engaging with our existing and prospective customers.

If you are finding challenges with effectively debugging in 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, and we’d love to help.
