FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why plexus?

Evaluation GUIs built with Plexus can serve as a powerful marketing tool to showcase the capabilities of your chip and reduce the lead time to market. The framework comes built-in with all the essential features like register map page, datasheet and collaterals integration, video guide integration, remote connectivity, and support for all standard communication protocols like I2C, SPI, UART. Further to top it, GUIs can be accessed through a browser with zero installation time

What is Plexus Lite?

Plexus Lite is a lighter version of Plexus. It's an Easy GUI Builder platform (with no coding) for Application Engineering Teams in the semiconductor industry which enables them to create modern looking GUIs within minutes

Who can use Plexus or Plexus Lite?

Mixed Signal companies who require customer-facing GUIs for their ICs. Application Engineering teams looking to provide a seamless evaluation experience for customers. Product & Marketing Teams targeting the mass market and need intuitive experience during the evaluation of IC

What are typical digital interfaces we support?

The most common interfaces include I2C, SPI, and UART. The framework is designed to extend support for any standard or custom interface module like MSP430 and also for communication protocols like PMBUS, SMBUS, I3C, etc.

What type of semiconductor devices can be integrated with Plexus?

The framework will support GUI development for most of the mixed signal devices. This includes, ADC, DAC, PMIC, LED Driver, Motor Driver, Power Interfaces, Battery management devices, Power controllers, Signal generators, Audio amplifiers, Power switches, etc. The framework can also support signal processing integration to capture FFT, SNR, etc. Type of measurements. Graphs can be integrated with the tool for intuitive display of the data during evaluation.

What is the key purpose of the tool?

Provide the user with a software tool to configure the semiconductor register map. It simplifies the user’s evaluation process to look through various documentation like datasheets, schematics, or lengthy user guides. Critical information for register configuration can be intuitively displayed in the GUI.

Why remote connectivity is important?

Field application engineers typically meet customers to showcase product offerings and not all the time they will have a hardware setup to demonstrate the product. The framework provides remote connectivity features so the FAE can remotely connect to set up in the lab and give a demo to the customers without the need to carry the hardware. Also, the GUI link can be shared with the customer for them to evaluate the device without the wait for the evaluation board to arrive at their site.

What technologies do we support?

Plexus is a web-based GUI development framework, built using the Angular framework and backed by the latest web stack for its dependencies (HTML5, SCSS, d3, plotly).
