How Many Promira Serial Platforms Can I Run Simultaneously and How Many SPI Target Devices Can Be Driven?

Question from the Customer:

We are looking to use two Promira Serial Platforms to drive multiple SPI target devices from the same computer.

  • How can we best control two Promira platforms? Which software applications would work best? We are running several tests and gathering a lot of data per test run.
  • How many target devices can each...

How Do I Pass Data Arrays using VBA with the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter?

Question from the Customer:

I am using the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter with an Excel VBA (32-bit Excel) script. I have questions about using the function aa_i2c_read for data arrays:

If I have the array of data_in defined in Integer type (i.e. Dim data(512) As Integer), would I have the problem to pass my data array of Intege...

How Do I Accelerate LabVIEW Write and Read Timing for I2C Devices?

Question from the Customer:

I’m testing an LED Driver for a rear lamp project. The LED is a slave device. The master device is an Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter. I started the tests using the Control Center Serial Software. The slave device responded correctly and the delay between writes and reads was very small, as expected....

How Can I Use LabVIEW to Automate Programming SPI EEPROMs?

We purchased four Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapters for programming SPI EEPROMs (AT25160A series).  I’m having problems getting started – can you help me read and write data to an SPI EEPROM?  I’ve tried using the Control Center Serial Software and Flash Center Software, but so far, no luck getting...

How Can I Make the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter Provide Interrupts to Get My Devices out of IDLE State?

Question from the Customer:

I am analyzing a device that supports NVMe MI 1.1, which also supports five Control Primitives.

To see how my device sends and receives MI Commands through the Side Band (OOB),

I am using two Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapters: one as a Master; one as a Slave.

My challenge is I am trying to work with a device...

What Details are Needed in the Profile to Accurately Run Type-C Cable Tests?

Question from the Customer:

I am starting to use the Advanced Cable Tester v2. I find the signal integrity eye diagrams easy to understand. The diagrams make sense to me as they correlate with the scope measurements in the lab.

I am curious about the accuracy of the GND/Shield resistance measurements. For example, one cable design has...
