I2C Development Kit

$705

Part Number: TP120112

Availability: In-Stock

The I2C Development Kit is a comprehensive and cost-effective kit that bundles together a complete set of Total Phase’s industry-leading I2C development tools and popular accessories. Both beginners and advanced developers will appreciate the convenience and value of the kit for developing and debugging an I2C bus on an embedded system.

With this kit, developers can exercise target I2C devices, simulate an I2C master or slave device, program and verify I2C-based memory devices and passively monitor an I2C bus in real-time with bit-level timing down to 20 ns.

I2C Dev Kit

I am new entry to I2C and SPI development and this kit is an amazing tool that has made the introduction so much easier, not only can you use the kit plus beagle as a training aid it also supports prototyping your solution. One of the best investments I have made in a while and low cost for what it offers.

I2C Dev Kit - Great HW/SW with no documentation
2016-09-07
Love the product, works great. Software works well on Mac. Could not find any documentation on setup or use - which software to download, how to hook up, etc. Had to find another engineer in town that uses the product to show me. He had figured out how to use the product without any documentation - said he never found any, either.

Best Value by far for evaluating I2C and basic SPI peripherals
2015-10-12
I have been designing with I2C and SPI peripherals for 30 years. Hands down, the TotalPhase Beagle I2C/SPI Protocol Analyzer and Ardvark Host Adapter are the easiest to use, fastest to implement, and least expensive (by 3X) tools on the market.

Very handy tools in the I2C Development Kit
2015-03-05
I had put off buying this because I didn't want to spend the money, however, you can get a lot more done with these tools than with a scope, so I think it is worth it. I would like the Ardvark to be able to be Master and Slave at the same time, but since each mode shares internal hardware, it can't. I'm very happy with this equipment.

awesome tool for serial comm debugging
2014-06-05
This is an awesome tool. I have found many unexpected errors in code. Wish it could capture a second serial channel simultaneously
