The A2B Adapter Board provides an independent AD2428-based bus monitor that can be used to monitor A2B systems.
The A2B Adapter Board has configurable functionality. One node is designed to operate as only a bus monitor. In the future, we plan to introduce another node that is designed to operate as either a passive bus monitor or an active simulator. The various interface ports (e.g. I2S and I2C) are presented via a number of headers to connect to control systems. The A2B nodes’ A and B ports are presented as Mini50 ports. A2B Cables with the Mini50 connector are sold separately to connect to an A2B system.
The A2B Adapter Board can be used with the A2B Bus Monitor - Level 1 Application on the Promira® Serial Platform to passively monitor an A2B system. For custom systems, the A2B Adapter Board can be used in conjunction with other Total Phase products to create custom functionality.
