How Can I Best Monitor Data and Phantom Power on the A2B Bus?

Question from the Customer:

I’m looking at the A2B Bus Monitor - Level 1 Application for an audio system.  I have some questions:

  • How many total channels are available? Our system has multiple channels per board.
  • How is the SigmaStudio® software used within the system?
  • Can we capture data in formats other than .WAV file?
  • Could I ...

How Do I Use a Beagle I2C/SPI Protocol Analyzer with Wireshark for IPMI Analysis?

Question from the Customer:

 I am working on a new project and after reading your article Did You Know That a Beagle Protocol Analyzer Can Be Integrated with Wireshark or ARM-based Hosts?, it looks like the Beagle I2C/SPI Protocol Analyzer could do the job. To be sure this is the right tool, I have some questions:

  • For IPMI analysi...

What are the Guidelines for Testing Ground and Shield Resistance of USB Cables?

Question from the Customer:

I am using the new Advanced Cable Tester v2 to test our USB 3.2 Standard-A to Type-C cables and am running into some problems after creating a custom profile. So far, I have not been able to modify the setting for the ground resistance to fit the specification. Here is where the test report shows failure:...

How Do I Implement I2C Master Register Read through LabVIEW?

Question from the Customer:

I am using the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter in I2C mode to perform a Master Register Read. Normally, I can do that with Aardvark Software API, but this time I’m using LabVIEW and it’s not working for me. How do I successfully implement I2C Master Register Read with LabVIEW?

Which SPI Host Adapters Work Best for Development and Verification?

Question from the Customer:

For a project focused on SD cards in SPI mode, I am looking at the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter and the Cheetah SPI Host Adapter. To cut costs, I am also looking at using Beagle I2C/SPI Protocol Analyzers instead of oscilloscopes. Looking at the specifications, I want to confirm how the Aardvark adapter ...

Which Tools Can Emulate an SPI Slave Device without Inter-Byte Delay?

Question from the Customer:

I need to emulate a SPI slave device that operates at 4 MHz. I am looking at the Promira Serial Platform and the applications. Would the SPI Active - Level 1 Application fulfill these requirements?

  • The data packet is 40 bits in length.
  • There is no inter-byte delay during 1 CS active event: 5 bytes continuo...
