The PROMIRA™ Serial Platform is the most advanced serial host device offered by Total Phase. The functionality of the device is determined by separately licenced firmware applications, which can be purchased when needed.

Applications include high-speed I2C, SPI and eSPI host adapters and protocol analysers as well as the Advanced cable tester for USB3.1 cables.

Product Details


As the number of embedded applications grow and as their requirements increase in complexity, the need for more powerful and flexible embedded systems tools is more important than ever. The Promira Serial Platform can fill the gap and be used to design, debug and develop in a multi-faceted manner. .

The Promira Serial Platform is the world's first I2C/SPI master or slave with eSPI simulator and protocol analysis capabilities. .

Built on a completely new FPGA-based architecture, the Promira platform is the latest tool in Total Phase's established line of cost-effective and easy-to-use embedded solutions. Instantly add new features to your device, as they
become available: program and receive data with new protocols, higher clock
rates and real-time protocol analysis. Each Promira platform includes a full software suite including powerful GUIs and APIs for a variety of applications.
Every Promira platform comes standard with integrated level-shifting, as well as Ethernet and USB control interfaces. The Promira platform is ready to accomplish any task you set it to. .

Here are some typical applications of the Promira: .

Development Prototyping

The Promira can be configured as a bus master or slave. As a master, it can be used to connect to sensors, memory devices and other peripherals. As a slave, it can be used to emulate a serial device and respond to test commands sent by a master CPU. .

Device Programming

The unit can be used to program EEPROM and Flash devices on a target board in the laboratory. .

The Promira is also ideal for production programming. Using its inbuilt Ethernet interface, the unit can be controlled away from the production floor using its API. This gives greater flexibility than the usual USB interface. .

Production Testing

In addition to being able to program a blank memory device in production, the Promira can also be used to perform regression tests on the programmed device, ensuring the quality of your manufactured device. .

IOT Applications

The PROMIRA can be used to add IoT capability to legacy systems. Take at look at the above video to see how. .

How Do I Buy a Promira?

The Promira platform can be configured to run a range of Applications. You simply choose which application, or applications you need when ordering a Promira. At least one application must be chosen. Other applications can be purchased when you need them. This makes the Promira a great investment as you only pay for applications that you need, saving you money! .

Currently, the following applications are available, with more being developed all the time: .

I2C Active - Level 1 Application

An essential I2C interface with programming speeds are twice as fast as the Aardvark I2C/SPI Host Adapter. Featuring support for the I2C fast mode plus specification, the 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. .

Prerequisite: a Promira platform. .

I2C Active - Level 2 Application

Features I2C programming speeds up to 3.4 MHz for Master and Slave. Featuring support for the I2C High Speed Mode specification, the 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. .

Prerequisite: A Promira platform with an I2C Active Level 1 Licence. .

SPI Active - Level 1 Application

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, the 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. .

Prerequisite: a Promira platform. .

SPI Active - Level 2 Application

SPI programming speeds are even faster than the Level 1 application - supporting clock speeds of up to 40 MHz for master and 20 MHz for slave functionality, the 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. .

Prerequisite: A Promira platform with an SPI Active Level 1 Licence. .

SPI Active - Level 3 Application

SPI programming speeds are even faster - supporting clock speeds of up to 80 MHz for master and 20 MHz for slave functionality, the 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. .

Prerequisite: A Promira platform with an SPI Active Level 2 Licence. .

eSPI Analysis Application

Monitor the 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. .

Prerequisite: A Promira platform. .

Advanced Cable Tester - Level 1 Application

Perform critical safety testing for Type-C and other USB cables, checking continuity, power handling, and E-Marker behavior. .

Prerequisite: a Promira platform. .

Advanced Cable Tester - Level 2 Application

This gives you the capability of fully testing your USB cable. You get everything from the Advanced Cable Tester - Level 1 Application, plus data throughput measurement at up to 12GBit/s. Signal Integrity tests all SuperSpeed and USB2 pairs to verify they meet the relevant specifications. Testing is done at 518 Mb for USB2, and at 5 Gb for USB 3.0, 10 Gb, or even up to 12 Gb for USB 3.1 (SuperSpeed) lines. .

Prerequisite: A Promira platform with an Advanced Cable Tester Level 1 Licence. .

A2B Bus Monitor - Level 1 Application

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. .

Prerequisite: a Promira platform. .
