Using the Aardvark I2C/SPI host adapter for development, test, verification and production


I have created a program for a new flash device. Using the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter, this part has been debugged, tested and verified – it’s now ready for production. This is a special order for one customer – the volume we’ll need to produce is much smaller than usual. TotalPhase-Aardvark_1.jpg

Currently, what I can do is read a register in the flash device. For production, what I need to do is download and save all the contents, and then load all that into a blank part. Do you have a tool that’s easy to use?


For production, to read the entire flash device content, you can use the Aardvark adapter with Flash Center Software. This could work for large scale production as well.

The Flash Center Software is an easy to use tool to quickly program, test and verify I2C and SPI based EEPROM and flash memory chips, as well as erase for reprogramming.  This works with many devices – Flash Center comes with an extensible XML parts library with built-in support for EEPROMs and serial flash chips from major manufacturers.  As the library is written in XML, you can easily modify or create your own XML file for new prototypes, or for very new products that are not yet supported in our library.
