To expand our operating system support and allow for even greater flexibility when interfacing with our tools, we've recently introduced APIs to support 32-bit ARM-based systems, including the popular Raspberry Pi.

In our latest video release, we show how to easily use a Raspberry Pi system to interface with an Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter to control our own I2C/SPI Activity Board. Watch the video here:

Featured Blogs: Data Center Software Series: Command Line/Capture Control Window

Our Data Center Software blog series provides insight into different features and functionalities within the software that users may find helpful for their own testing and debugging efforts. We've recently added two new blogs to the series, including articles all about the Command Line and Capture Control Window features:

Data Center Software Series: Using the Command Line

The Command Line Window provides users with a command line interface that can be used as an alternative way to interact with the controls and perform operations within the Data Center Software. Learn more about this feature here:

Data Center Software Series: Capture Control Window


The Capture Control Window provides both control of a capture and visibility into the current state of the capture. Through the "Software Capture Buffer" progress bar, users can view the total amount of memory available for use from the analysis PC. Additionally, when debugging USB, engineers can monitor the progress of the USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 capture buffers and also start, stop, and trigger a capture. Learn more about this feature:

Super useful tool. The Aardvark + level shift board is a great tool for accessing I2C and SPI devices early in hardware development. The ability to save the logs to CSV files and to save and run .XML files makes the Aardvark a real time saver.
