Every BrainStem module includes a single system entity. The system entity allows the retrieval and manipulation of configuration settings like the module address and input voltage, control over the user LED, as well as other functionality.
Every USB-C-Switch is assigned a unique serial number at the factory. This facilitates an arbitrary number of USB-C-Switch devices attached to a host computer. The following method call can retrieve the unique serial number for each device.
Some entities can be configured and saved to non-volatile memory. This allows a user to modify the startup and operational behavior for the USB-C-Switch away from the factory default settings. Saving system settings preserves the settings as the new default. Most changes to system settings require a save and reboot before taking effect. For example, upstream and downstream USB Boost settings will not take effect unless a system save operation is completed, followed by a reset or power cycle. Use the following command to save changes to system settings before reboot:
USB Mode (usb)
Equalizer Configuration (equalizer)
Mux Split Mode (mux)
Mux Enable (mux)
Mux Configuration (mux)
Mux Port (mux)
