There are a few ways to export Data Center Software captures to use in Wireshark for further processing. Learn how this can be done with USB and I2C captures.
 
 
By using our free product software APIs, it is possible for users of Total Phase products to utilize the tools in external applications, including MATLAB. Learn the steps to be able to do so.
 
 
The Flash Center Software natively supports hundreds of I2C- and SPI-based EEPROM and Flash memory chips, but users can also add in their own part if it is not already available. Learn how to easily create and add a custom memory device to the Flash Center Software Library.
 
 
Protocol analyzers and oscilloscopes are both helpful tools in analyzing and debugging embedded systems, with each providing their own particular view of the bus in different ways. Find out more about the differences between these tools and the benefits of using a protocol analyzer over an oscilloscope.
 
 
Learn how to connect and set up a Flash SOIC-8 Socket Board to program I2C EEPROMs using a breakout cable and the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter.
 
 
Are you looking to capture and decode USB audio protocol? Learn how to do so by using the Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer and Data Center Software in the process.
 
 
Need to test cables using more or less stringent requirements than the cable specification? Learn how to easily create your own custom profile for the Advanced Cable Tester v2.
 
 
Easily monitor I2C communication used within VGA or DVI signals using the Beagle I2C/SPI Protocol Analyzer.
 
 
Learn how to use Total Phase I2C tools with the A2B Bus Monitor for a full system emulation.

Not sure which Total Phase host adapter is right for you? Discover the differences and use cases for each one to help you decide.
 
 
Total Phase is proud to partner with the Atmel University Program to help engineering educators and students.
 

 

The class-level decoding feature of the Data Center Software makes debugging USB devices even easier. Immediately after plugging in a USB device through the Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer or Beagle USB 5000 v2 SuperSpeed Protocol Analyzer, raw packets are automatically parsed in true real-time into human-readable class-level fields by the software.

 

Programming I2C- and SPI-based Flash and EEPROM memory is quick and easy when using either a Cheetah SPI Host Adapter, an Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter, or Promira Serial Platform with the free Flash Center software. This guide explains how to get started in 4 easy steps.

 

Accelerate your I2C debugging. Total Phase I2C development tools are powerful and easy to use.

 

 

The Beagle USB analyzers offer developers a powerful bus sniffing tool for a reasonable price. This quick overview provides a summary and a feature comparison of Total Phase Beagle USB Protocol Analyzers.

 

USB Protocol Analyzers come in one of two basic types: software-only analyzers and hardware-based analyzers. Find out why hardware analyzers provide significantly better visibility into USB problems.

 

Total Phase offers a wide range of powerful, budget-friendly I2C, SPI, and USB tools that are ideal for AVR developers.
