An ever-wider array of devices and the increasing pressure to
minimize costs means that you need to get the most out of your
embedded systems interface tools - and the Aardvark™ I2C/SPI Host
Adapter is expressly designed to enable your competitive edge.
Our most popular product, the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter, is a
fast and powerful USB-to-I2C/SPI bus host adapter. It helps you to
focus on your core competencies by deploying customized solutions
with minimal engineering overhead. With its ability to emulate a
master or slave, communicate in I2C or SPI, the Aardvark I2C/SPI
Host Adapter is a versatile tool well-suited to a variety of applications.
Prototyping
Prototyping Use Case
• Emulate a master or slave
to quickly create a protoype
embedded system
• Evaluate peripherals such as
sensors and memory chips,
quickly and easily
Create working prototypes quickly
and easily with the Aardvark I2C/
SPI adapter. As a master, it can emulate an MCU to actively poll sensors,
write and read from EEPROMs, and
control the bus.
Production and Testing
Production Use Case
• Program firmware and other data
in production environment
• Run automated tests
Bundling
• Provide end-customers with easy
access to I2C/SPI lines of your
device
Seamlessly integrate the Aardvark
I2C/SPI adapter into your production environment. Using the API or
LabVIEW VIs allows the user to build
software applications customized for
their production line. For example,
the Aardvark I2C/SPI adapter can
be configured to program firmware
onto EEPROMs, read data from specific registers, and run automated
tests scripts.
