CORELIS Inc. has introduced a high-performance I2C and SMBus bus analyser, exerciser, debugger, tester and programmer, the CAS-100-I2C.
Available from Alfa-Tek , the CAS-1000-I2C can be used in laboratory, development, production/manufacturing and field environments.
The CAS-1000-I2C is an advanced instrument used in the monitoring and testing of devices and systems incorporating one or more I2C buses.
The device can be used to monitor in real-time and log I2C bus traffic, generate traffic to exercise the bus and communicate to its components, program in-system EEPROMs, validate bus specification compliance, confirm protocol of bus traffic, and emulate I2C compatible devices that are not yet physically connected to the bus.
The CAS-1000-I2C also includes a JTAG controller that, when used with Corelis’ optional ScanExpress software, can perform boundary-scan interconnect testing and in-system programming of flash memories and CPLDs.
The CAS-1000-I2C/A is available now and the /E version will be available shortly.
