Promira Host Adapter
This is a great tool for development. Easy to attach to target boards. Good, simple software API. The extra GPIO and variable target & I/O voltages [as compared to Aardvark] are extremely useful in my dev/test environment.
Jaroslaw L.
Easy to setup and use, excellent results
Used this to QA extension cables received from OEM. Eye diagrams were extremely helpful in helping remove poor performing cables before they were even installed.
David S.
Great for QC and development
It's been a pleasure to use, including quick setup and short test times.
Jesus O.
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.

Happy Aardvark and Promira platform user
I've worked with the Aardvark for years and recently purchased the Promira Serial Platform to work at faster speeds. Works great for SPI!
M B.
Just what I needed.
Great tool at good price. Was able to get only what I needed without ever spending. Have the option to upgrade without having to do a trade-in.
Great Tool
A great tool for advance I2C and SPI development. The built-in level shifter is handy and the option to upgrade the device when needed is convenient.
Great job... Very nice tool.
Probably the most versatile tool out there. I highly recommend having this in your arsenal.
