For example, take the case of a graphical application that is written to communicate SPI through a Cheetah device. After the operation completes, the batch queue is not cleared. This is possible if the device was unplugged while being used. The queue has a queued delay after the last shifted byte, which is not permissible for asynchronous batch shifting. The Cheetah adapter has built-in electrostatic discharge protection to prevent damage to the unit from high voltage static electricity. Additional discounts are available for larger volumes. A suggested mode of operation would be as follows:

The Cheetah adapter can be connected or disconnected from the bus through software control. This optimization introduces an 8 clock cycle delay in the operation of the Cheetah device at the point that the Cheetau device stops sending the slave response back to the host.

The array will be processed with a minimal run length encoding algorithm, so repeated sequences of single bytes will be sent more efficiently. The Cheetah software automatically detects firmware compatibility and will inform the user if an upgrade is required. The IDs are guaranteed to be non-zero if valid. This means that as devices are added, the circuit increases in complexity.


Returns the number of bytes queued. Under Linux, such devices correspond to Cheetah adapters that are currently in use.

If there is a version mismatch, the API calls to open the device will fail. The exchange itself has no pre-defined protocol. To confirm that the device was correctly installed, check that the device appears in the Device Manager. The Cheetah DLL dpi a robust approach to allow present-day Cheetah-enabled applications to interoperate with future versions of the device interface software without recompilation.

This function is recommended for use in complex applications where extended information is required. Queues nanoseconds amount of delay on the bus. This function will return the number of milliseconds that were actually slept. When in high impedance mode the Cheetah device will hold the last value of the output lines with very weak pull-up or pull-down resistances. If the code is not zdapter, it returns a NULL string.

Updates to this firmware are provided through a device upgrade utility. If cheettah Cheetah adapter is subsequently removed from the system, the remaining adapters shift their port numbers accordingly.

The master pulls low on a slaves SS line to select a device for communication. Call this function to enable the Cheetah outputs before calling chedtah of the other queue functions. Second Slave Select — an additional control line that allows slaves to be turned on and off via hardware control. The ID is the unsigned integer representation of the digit serial number.


For example, one can send several separate SPI packets with the following sequence:. Next, cheetaj that the Rosetta language binding e. Note that the submitted batch should be sufficiently long in real time so that it does not complete before the application can submit more batches and also collect the first batch. It is even possible that the application will not need multiple threads if it can process the data between steps 2 and 3 and guarantee the algorithm will not take too long to process the incoming data.

Hence, if the SS line is left asserted after one transaction, it will stay asserted until modified in a subsequent transaction. Likewise, a temporary incoming buffer will also be created. Total Phase and distributors have no obligation to provide maintenance, support, or spo.

Used to determine the USB communication rate between yost Cheetah device and the host.

The number of adapters closed is returned on success. Each element of the array is written with the port number.

The configuration will be described by the same values as in the table above.
