Corelis Introduces High-Speed Quad-SPI Host Adapter
Aug 07, 2012
Corelis, Inc. has announced the introduction of the BusPro-S, a high-speed multi-IO SPI host adapter. The BusPro-S USB-powered desktop instrument allows
engineers to save precious development time by providing low level control of Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) buses for the generation of SPI messages and programming SPI memory.
features of the BusPro-S include:
· 60 MHz clock rates with up to 200 Mb/s throughput.
· Standard, dual, quad, and 3-wire mode support.
· User selectable interface voltages down to 1.8V.
· Eight independent slave select signals.
· Powerful Graphical User Interface (GUI) with a complete command script editor.
· Royalty-free Application Programming Interface (API).
The BusPro-S is controlled by the included SPI Exerciser software using two modules: Debugger and Programmer. The Debugger module features a command script interface with individual tabs for concurrent command sessions. All communications from the Debugger module are recorded
and displayed in a detailed transaction log. The Programmer module enables fast, convenient insystem erase, program, verify, and read operations for both standard and multi-IO non-volatile memory components using an included library of common Flash and EEPROM device models.
"SPI continues to thrive due to its robust simplicity," comments Ryan Jones, Senior Technical Marketing Engineer at Corelis. "While extremely simple, the SPI bus offers a tremendous amount of power and flexibility. We've designed our software in such a way that it provides a
clean, intuitive interface, yet still offers users unhindered access to that power and flexibility."
The BusPro-S comes complete with hardware, software, and cables. It is being offered at an introductory list price of $675 and is available for purchase through the Corelis online store:
