PRODUCT UPDATE: Promira is Now Event Faster Than Before

There is a new firmware release for the Promira Serial Platform. This release, scheduled for Thursday, enhances the Promira platform, making it more efficient, and faster than ever before. Not only is the Promira platform twice as fast at performing read or write operations to Quad SPI memory, this update also increases the efficiency of single I/O SPI programming. This latest update ensures that your Promira platform is the fastest and most efficient tool that Total Phase has ever offered , bringing the upper limit to almost twice that of the Cheetah Host Adapter.

Note, your Promira platform application support agreement must be current in order to benefit from this free update. Log in to your Total Phase online user account and navigate to your “My Applications” dashboard to determine your application support schedule. If you are not under a current support agreement.

PRODUCT UPDATE: Advanced Cable Tester

Total Phase’s engineering team has been working feverishly to further improve the cable test reporting of the Advanced Cable Tester. Now, test results for cables that have failed the set testing parameters will be more distinct, further protecting you, your customers and consumers from bad cables.



In addition, a new notification system as been added to alert you when connectors are approaching the end of their life. Over the course of many insertions/tests, the receptacle connectors will wear slowly and adversely impact test results. We’ll warn you before this has any impact on your test results.

Other updates include improving the legacy cable report so only relevant pins are included, and adjusting one auto-detect parameter for USB 2.0/5A C-to-C cables. All this will be available on Thursday of this week.

Note, your Promira platform application support agreement must be current in order to benefit from this free update. Log in to your Total Phase online user account and navigate to your “My Applications” dashboard to determine your application support schedule. If you are not under a current support agreement your sales representative will be happy to provide a quote for renewal. Email sales with any questions.

NEW PRODUCT: USB Power Delivery Analyzer API

This API enables you to integrate your Total Phase USB Power Delivery Analyzer with your custom C, C#, Python, or .NET software, to perform actions like starting and stopping capture, and retrieving transactions and timing information.

SPOTLIGHT: Promira Serial Platform

Quick tool with powerful features. We purchased the Promira to program flash chips in Quad mode for R&D. The unit is extremely versatile and well-priced. The software is simple and convenient but very effective. On top of that, the Total Phase sales and support folks are awesome! They're quick to respond to any issues and are great at following up on any suggestions or solutions.
