There are Two Ways for a Beagle USB Protocol Analyzer to Export Data to WireShark - See What Works Best for You

Question from the Customer:

In the past, I have had great success using the Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer with Data Center Software to collect Ethernet Frames over a USB 2.0 link. Now I am starting a new project where I’m adding Wireshark to the mix. How can I export the data captured in Data Center to Wireshark? Wireshark uses packet capt...

When monitoring data on the USB bus, how do I tell which data is from the host computer and which is from the device under test?

Question from the Customer:
I’m using the Beagle USB 480 Power Protocol Analyzer - Standard Edition to monitor data between devices and the host computer. Looking at the data transactions in the block view of the Data Center Software, I see “IN” and “OUT” transaction types – does that tell me the direction of the data flow?

How do I adjust the timing between slave select and the first clock for SPI frames?

Question from the Customer:

I am using the Promira Serial Platform to communicate on my SPI bus. I want to send SPI frames at 10 MHz and I would like to play with the time between the slave select (SS) line and the first clock (CLK) slope. For example, I want to send the same SPI frame with various SS to CLK times.

Is that possible? How would I...
