New: Data Center 6.71 Features

Data Center Software is even more robust then ever, with increased features supporting the eSPI protocol on the Promira Serial Platform and monitoring for the USB Power Delivery Analyzer.

Starting April 4, Data Center Software will support Hardware Filters, Simple Triggers and Advanced Triggers for eSPI.

Hardware Filters provide the ability to filter out packets at the hardware level. This reduces the amount of captured data that is sent back to the analysis computer from the Promira platform, resulting in smaller traces that only contain the information you were seeking to capture. In addition, these filter settings can be configured independently for each slave.

Simple Triggers allow the user to specify an event to trigger a capture and/or toggle a digital output pin.

Advanced Triggers offer a complex pattern/sequence match engine that provides triggering on a specific condition/sequence of events on the eSPI bus with multiple options and a high level of configuration specifically tailored around the eSPI protocol.

Using the advanced match feature, you can specify and configure the analyzer to match and trigger on three different types of conditions/sequences based on eSPI packets.
    1.  a sequence of up to four eSPI packets
    2.  a specific non-posted transaction and corresponding completion(s)
    3.  a packet that has an error code in its status

While hardware filters, simple triggers, and advanced triggers have been included the Data Center USB lens for some time, these features have been optimized for eSPI within the eSPI capture lens.

We’ve added Voltage and Current monitoring using Data Center with your USB Power Delivery Analyzer. 

2106 Survey of Embedded Developers

Total Phase would like to help you speed up the most complicated of embedded design projects.
Total Phase has partnered with Embedded Market Forecasters and Wilson Research Group to bring you the 2016 Embedded Developers Survey. Your responses will help all of us better understand the direction in which the industry is headed and the needs that are not being fulfilled.

See how your projects compare to others. Upon close of the survey you will have the option to receive a summary of the results. Giving you an in-depth look into the embedded market.

Start Survey

Completing the survey also entitles you download access to an insightful white paper entitled "Comparing developer activities between IoT and Non- IoT Developments."

Spotlight: Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer

Nothing short of epic...
This little but amazingly powerful device has saved my technology startup. I had such a hard time finding a contract firmware developer with experience in USB that I had to become my own. This tool has proven itself priceless when it comes to debugging and improving our company's prototype. We are now back on schedule thanks to Total Phase! Well made. Data Center software is great. Makes troubleshooting USB a breeze. Priced right too.
