eSPI Analysis Application

Part Number: TP601010

Please note, this is an application that requires installation on the Promira™ Serial Platform.

First released by Intel in June 2013, the Enhanced Serial Peripheral Interface (“eSPI”) is designed as a replacement for the Low Pin Count (“LPC”) bus.  eSPI supports communication between Embedded Controller (EC), Baseboard Management Controller (BMC), Super-I/O (SIO) and Port-80 debug cards.  eSPI was available in the Sky Lake chipset (2015) and is available in the Kaby Lake [current] chipset.  Cannonlake will support eSPI and is slated for release the second half of 2017. Icelake is scheduled for release in 2019 and it will mark the first chipset when eSPI becomes mandatory.

Prior to this specification, Embedded Controller (EC), Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) and Super I/O (SIO) were connected to the chipset through the Low Pin Count (LPC) bus.

The Total Phase eSPI Analysis Application is the first eSPI monitor in the industry. With this application you will be able to monitor eSPI communication between multiple eSPI devices:

  • Monitor communication between a master and slaves on data lines
  • Support for single, dual and quad I/O
  • Support for clock speeds up to 66MHz
  • Monitor up to 5 channels (peripheral, virtual wire, OOB, Flash, Independent)
  • Monitor up to 2 slave select lines
  • Monitor 2 alert lines
  • Monitor 2 reset lines
  • Match triggers, hardware filters and statistics 

When used in conjunction with our Data Center™ Software you will be able to capture and display eSPI bus data in true real time through the Promira Serial Platform. Total Phase provides the only protocol analysis software in the industry with true real-time performance and cross-platform support for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. 

While eSPI utilizes the physical interface designed for SPI, including the master-multi slave topology and data sampling rules with respect to clock, the similarity ends there!

eSPI has a transaction layer on top of this, which defines a packet based protocol.  Data Center is a world-class capture and display visualization tool to help accelerate your eSPI development.

For more information on the eSPi specification please visit the Intel site.

In addition to non-intrusively monitoring eSPI, Total Phase also offers eSPI Active Example Files. These files are available for all Promira platform devices with SPI Active - Level 1 ApplicationSPI Active - Level 2 Application, or SPI Active - Level 3 Application enabled. Performance (I/O compatibility and clock speed supported) matchs your licensed SPI Active application level. eSPI active examples functionality is not available for Promira Serial Platform units without licensed SPI Active Applications.

The purchase of your eSPI Analisys Application includes one year of support, allowing you to download any updates for this application for 12 months after purchase.

What is Included?

The eSPI Analysis Application is a download that runs on your Promira Serial Platform unit.  Once you have purchased a Promira Serial Platform, you'll be able to instantly download and add new applications as they become available. 

All applications include one full year of software maintenance.  As long as your software maintenance is current, you can take advantage of our five-star support. Any time you purchase a new application for your Promira Serial Platform, we'll automatically extend the software maintenance for all applications that have current maintenance support (applications that are out of support do not receive this benefit, so it's always best to keep the maintenance current on your applications). That means if you purchase one new application per year, all your applications will be eligible for software support. Don't worry - if your software support is about to expire, we'll let you know and you'll have the option of purchasing continued software support.
