The Growing Use of Micro Electro-Mechanical (MEMS) Devices to Improve and the Maintain Health of Machines and People

MEMS (Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems) technology supports motion sensors that detect, report, and collect information on anything that moves. The data these sensors generate are applied to many aspects of our daily lives, ranging from necessary and practical safety standards to augmented reality entertainment. This technology is applied i...

Can the Promira Serial Platform Support and Generate the Master and Slave SPI Waveforms that I Need?

Question from the Customer:

I am looking for a programmable SPI interface adapter that will support communicating with two devices. For both devices, the clock speed is 10MHz and the clock is only active during transmit.

I’ve been looking for the right tool, and your Promira Serial Platform, along with the SPI Active - Level 1 Application, ...

How Do I Reduce the Latency of Data Being Delivered from a USB Port to the Computer?

Question from the Customer:

We are using the Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer and Data Center Software to sniff Full-speed USB data. We observed that data is displayed first on the DUT display and displayed on the Data Center Software afterwards. This was not expected. In our setup, data should be displayed on the Data Center Software befor...

To Verify the USB Data Path is Operating at Maximum Speed, How Do I Adjust Periodic Timeout and Polling?

Question from the Customer:

I am using the Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer to debug some issues on my CDC ECM implementation on a STM-32 MCU. I have questions about the results I’m seeing with Data Center Software.

I am looking into the significance of the POLL and IN-NAK counts, as well as the Length that is reported in some records as by...

Which Host Adapters Can Operate as either SPI Slave or SPI Master and Run from One Computer?

Question from the Customer:

I have been using the Cheetah SPI Host Adapter as an SPI Master – now I need the functions of both an SPI Master and an SPI Slave. I see the Cheetah adapter only functions as an SPI Master.

For ease of use, I’m looking to use the same model for these functions. I need to operate these SPI devices independently ...

What is the Difference between Master Register Read and Master Read, and How Can I Best Implement those Commands?

Question from the Customer:

I am using the Control Center Serial Software with an Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter as the I2C master. Can you help me understand the difference between Master Read and Master Register Read? The Master Read command appears similar to the Sequential Read command, an I2C read with a stop – what am I missing?
