The Promira™ Serial Platform is our most advanced serial device ever. This new, powerful platform offers many benefits over our previous generation of host adapters:

  • Integrated level shifting ensures you'll be able to work at a variety of voltages ranging from 0.9 to 5.0 volts without needing any costly accessory boards.
  • High-speed USB connectivity to the host system provides high performance and convenience for benchtop programming, testing, and emulation.
  • Ethernet connectivity is convenient for benchtop work, and it also enables remote control for your automation needs.
  • With the ability to provide a total of 200 mA of power, Promira platform can easily power your project, simplifying connectivity and troubleshooting.
  • New architecture enables you to download applications to the Promira platform - Upgrade your device when you need new features and you'll never wait for that emergency delivery in the middle of your project.

Custom configure your Promira platform with any of the currently available applications:

With the I2C Active - Level 1 Application (licensed separately), I2C programming speeds are twice as fast as the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter. Featuring support for the I2C fast mode plus specification, Promira platform equipped with the I2C Active - Level 1 Application provides high speed I2C programming, high performance debugging, and superior emulation for your I2C protocol needs.

With the I2C Active - Level 2 Application (licensed separately), I2C programming speeds up to 3.4 MHz for Master and Slave. Featuring support for the I2C High Speed Mode specification, Promira platform equipped with the I2C Active - Level 2 Application provides high speed I2C programming, high performance debugging, and superior emulation for your I2C protocol needs.

With the SPI Active - Level 1 Application (licensed separately), SPI programming speeds are over eight times faster than the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter. Supporting clock speeds of up to 12.5 MHz for master and 8 MHz for slave functionality, Promira platform equipped with the SPI Active - Level 1 Application provides fast programming, ultra-high performance debugging and superior emulation for your SPI protocol needs.

With the SPI Active - Level 2 Application (licensed separately), SPI programming speeds are even faster than before - supporting clock speeds of up to 40 MHz for master and 20 MHz for slave functionality, Promira platform equipped with the SPI Active - Level 2 Application provides fast programming, ultra-high performance debugging and superior emulation for your SPI protocol needs.

With the SPI Active - Level 3 Application (licensed separately), SPI programming speeds are even faster than before - supporting clock speeds of up to 80 MHz for master and 20 MHz for slave functionality, Promira platform equipped with the SPI Active - Level 3 Application provides fast programming, ultra-high performance debugging and superior emulation for your SPI protocol needs. The eSPI Active Example files also show you how to use your SPI Active licensed Promira Serial Platform to act as a master for the eSPI protocol.

With the eSPI Analysis Application (licensed separately), you will be able to monitor eSPI communication, including monitoring communication between a master and slave on accross the data lines, 5 channels (peripheral, virtual wire, OOB, Flash, Independent), 2 alert lines, 2 reset lines and more. The eSPI Active Example files also show you how to use your SPI Active licensed Promira Serial Platform to act as a master for the eSPI protocol.

With the A2B Bus Monitor - Level 1 Application (licensed separately), you will be able to non-intrusively monitor A2B communication. Multiple views provide information about A2B bus data (including I2C data, GPIO data, Interrupts), Node Topology, and I2S/TDM audio data and configuration. A Promira platform licensed with the A2B Bus Monitor - Level 1 Application is a compact solution excellent for bench top prototyping and in-vehicle field testing.

  1. Easy to setup and use, excellent results Review by Jaroslaw L.
    Rating

    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. (Posted on 7/10/19)

  2. Great for QC and development Review by David S.
    Rating

    It's been a pleasure to use, including quick setup and short test times. (Posted on 12/17/18)

  3. Quick tool with powerful features. Review by Jesus O.
    Rating

    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. (Posted on 9/21/16)

  4. Happy Aardvark and Promira platform user Review by Taylor N.
    Rating

    I've worked with the Aardvark for years and recently purchased the Promira Serial Platform to work at faster speeds. Works great for SPI! (Posted on 6/14/16)

  5. Just what I needed. Review by M B.
    Rating

    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. (Posted on 6/14/16)
