How Do I Quickly Resume Using the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter when the Application is Restarted?

Question from the Customer:

I am writing a program to detect multiple Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapters and connect to them.

I want to ensure that when the application fails and is restarted, it can connect to the Aardvark adapters that were open and working. This is where I am having issues:

  • If I write some buggy application code tha...

How Do I Set Up the Timing for SPI Slave and SPI Master Devices to Communicate?

Question from the Customer:

I am streaming 5.56 MHz SPI data over the MOSI line. I am using the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter as the slave device in SPI + GPIO mode with the Control Center Serial Software. My problem is I do not see data at either 4 MHz or 8 MHz in the transaction log window.  I see that the master sends out dat...

Which Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter Pins Can Be Made Available for GPIO Signals and How Are They Controlled?

Question from the Customer:

I am starting to use the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter and I have some questions about the GPIO pins, including how to program them with your software. I am using the Aardvark adapter with an I2C device.

  • Can you provide guidelines for configuring Aardvark adapter's MISO pin as an output and setting the l...

How Can I Monitor and Store Captured SPI Data Over Long Evaluation Periods and Test Runs?

Question from the Customer:

I am looking for tools to use with an upcoming project. The tasks include extended evaluation periods that can last up to five days.  There are multiple SPI buses to monitor with speeds that vary from 1-2 Mbps. Although the periods can be lengthy, the data transactions will not be continuous; I estimate th...

How Can I Program a Microwire Device with Specific Clock Cycles per Write Command?

Question from the Customer:

Is there a way I can use the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter to program a microwire device? Here is a summary of device requirements:

  • A specific number of clock cycles must coincide with the operation being sent.
  • The number of clock cycles is not a multiple of 8; this device is not constrained to a number of ...
