Year in Review: Total Phase 2020 Highlights 


2020 is over and 2021 is among us. While we head into the new year, we wanted to reflect on our latest releases and updates of 2020. Check out Total Phase's highlights from this past year:

New ARM APIs + API Updates

In 2020, we introduced new APIs compatible with 32-bit ARM-based platforms. These ARM APIs will allow users to run our products* on popular ARM platforms including Raspberry Pi.

In addition, we have also released updates for our current product APIs* supporting Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. These APIs now support Python 3.9 and include performance and usability improvements. We've also added two new example programs for the Aardvark Software API to provide updated support for C# and multi-programming.

Download the product APIs here:

Aardvark Software API
Beagle Software API
Cheetah Software API
Komodo Software API
USB Power Delivery Analyzer API

*ARM APIs and API updates are available for all products excluding the Promira Serial Platform. This will be released at a later date.

Komodo GUI Now Supports 64-bit Applications


Total Phase also introduced a new version of the Komodo GUI Software, a software that provides access to the CAN functions of the Komodo CAN Interface. The new v1.60 adds support for 64-bit operating systems.

The new software version 1.60 can be download here: Komodo GUI Software

Advanced Cable Tester v2 Firmware v2.5 Release

We also released a new firmware update for the Advanced Cable Tester v2:  Firmware version 2.5.0. This update includes: 

  • An increase in module insertion count limits
  • An option to disable USB De-emphasis 
  • Type-C configurable delay before Ra measurements
  • A loosened continuity threshold

Control Center Serial Software 4.1 Release 

We released a new version of the Control Center Serial Software, version 4.1. Version 4.1 offers performance improvements and fixes.

New PyPI Support for Aardvark 

We've made our best-selling Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter even more adaptable for individual I2C and SPI project requirements. The Aardvark Software API is now supported by Python Package Index, or PyPI. This allows users who work with our Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter and Python API to easily download and install all API packages with a single command.

Spotlight: Beagle USB 5000 v2 SuperSpeed Protocol Analyzer



The Beagle USB 5000 v2 SuperSpeed Protocol Analyzer met and exceeded all of my expectations. The case is all metal, very well designed and built, and very durable. The included cables feel very high quality, and the user manual is very detailed and easy to understand. Additionally, the DataCenter software is very easy to learn and use.

Overall I am very satisfied with the product, and would gladly recommend it to others.
