Learn to Debug I2C and USB in Real Time at the Embedded Systems Conference Silicon Valley with Total Phase

Embedded Systems Conference San Jose - May 4, 2011 - For the first time, attendees of the Embedded Systems Conference in San Jose will have the opportunity to participate in a hands-on lab session featuring Total Phase's line of powerful development tools for USB, I2C, and SPI. The lab session, called ESC-419: "Using Embedded Tools for I2C, SPI and USB Debugging and Development," will be hosted by Total Phase on Thursday, May 5, 2011. Those attending the class will have the opportunity to experience first-hand the advantages of working with real-time protocol analyzers.

This hands-on workshop focuses on debugging I2C and USB protocol issues using real-time, interactive analysis methods. Both the Beagle I2C/SPI Protocol Analyzer and Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer will be used in the class alongside the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter, a powerful multi-purpose bus interface. The Beagle protocol analyzers are the only true real-time bus monitors available on the market. Real-time analysis provides an interactive debugging experience that will help class participants eliminate unnecessary delays in capturing and processing data. This technical hands-on lab is based on the Renesas SH7216 Development Kit (RDK) provided by session co-sponsor, Renesas Electronics America (http://www.am.renesas.com).

"We are excited to be participating in this lab session with Total Phase. It is a great opportunity to demonstrate the power of the SH-2A 7216 MCU alongside complimentary tools like the Beagle I2C/SPI analyzer," said Todd DeBoer, Director, Mass Market Group, Consumer & Industrial Business Unit, Renesas Electronics America. "Renesas is always pleased to assist our Alliance Partners through mutual endeavors such as this ESC class."

"This lab session is an excellent opportunity for engineers to be introduced to the power of real-time, interactive protocol analysis that comes from using Beagle protocol analyzers," said Derek Fung, VP Business at Total Phase. "As a company founded on solid engineering, we know how hard it can be to develop and debug an embedded system. Our tools aim to make an engineer's life easier by providing tools that can streamline their development process. We are happy to share our experience through this at the ESC and we hope that participants can use the demonstrated techniques to get an immediate productivity boost."

Embedded Systems Conference session ESC-419: "Using Embedded Tools for I2C, SPI and USB Debugging and Development" will be held in room A5 on May 5 at 2:00 PM. Anyone interested in attending this class is encouraged to arrive early as space is limited and seats are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
