Share Article

The Falcon G300/G400 series of exercisers and analyzers offer Trace Validation™, full protocol emulation capability, Test Executive™, and are upgradeable to HS-G4

Falcon Series UFS/UniPro Exercisers and Analyzers

Protocol Insight showed their prototype Falcon series UFS and UniPro protocol exerciser and analyzer at the MIPI DevCon in Mountain View, CA USA last week, demonstrating Falcon G350 exerciser control of a UniPro DUT with the analyzer using Trace Validation to debug the captured traces.

The Falcon G300/G400 series with Trace Validation™ offers

  • Complete protocol debug and analysis of UFS and UniPro devices
  • Support for MIPI M-PHY v3.1 HS-G3 and UniPro v1.61
  • Support for MIPI M-PHY v4.1 HS-G4 and UniPro v1.8 in a future upgrade
  • Falcon G300 Analyzer and Falcon G350 Exerciser/Analyzer configurations
  • A new Event Viewer which displays traditional timing information plus a comprehensive overview of all events on the bus
  • Compliance/conformance Test Suite (CTS) verification of UFS and UniPro
  • Test Executive™ capability, providing margin, corner case and automated stress testing
  • Custom test case Builders for creation of unique custom tests

Trace Validation™ will find your problems for you.
Trace Validation in the Falcon series analyzer performs state-machine analysis of the protocol sequences and packet characteristics in captured traces. It identifies transactions on the link by analyzing millions of packets, then evaluating the complete protocol sequences and individual packets for conformance to the UFS and UniPro specification.

With Trace Validation, complex transactions such as power mode changes, Link Startup Sequence and NAC/Replay events can be automatically analyzed and easily debugged.

Compliance testing for UFSA certification

  • The Falcon series supports testing of UFS2.1 and the new card extension spec (JESD220B/C and JESD220-2), and executes the test cases defined in JESD224
  • Executes test cases specified in the UFSA CTM v1.0.
  • Supports testing of UniPro v1.61 and executes the UniPro v1.1 CTS conformance tests
