Protocol Insight is now shipping the Falcon series of UFS and UniPro protocol exercisers and analyzers. The Falcon G300 Analyzer offers the unique Trace Validation capability to accelerate debug of the UniPro Link Startup Sequence and other common issues. The Falcon G350 Exerciser/Analyzer supports stress testing, margin and corner case testing, and compliance testing of both UFS and UniPro.

“Adoption of UFS 2.1 is occurring rapidly, in embedded applications and with the external card form factor,” said Tony Carosa, chief architect, Protocol Insight. “As a result, faster resolution of common design issues and verification of interoperability are critically important. Trace Validation finds flaws quickly for shorter time to market, and Test Executive ensures compliance and interoperability.”

Trace Validation™ will find your problems for you.
Trace Validation uses state machine logic to analyze captured traces algorithmically without user intervention. It analyzes bi-directional UniPro and UFS traffic, performing protocol sequence and timing analysis and packet header and payload inspection.

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

Test Executive™ compliance testing for UFSA certification
Test Executive™ executes the test cases specified in the UFSA CTM v1.0, and supports compliance testing of UFS2.1 (JESD220C) and the new card extension specification (JESD220-2). It also executes the test cases defined in JESD224 and performs conformance testing of UniPro v1.61 and the UniPro v1.1 CTS.

Pricing, configuration and availability:
The Falcon G300 UFS/UniPro analyzer and Falcon G350 UFS/UniPro exerciser/analyzer are available today at prices starting at $125,000 US MSRP. Go to http://www.protocolinsight.com/falcon-g300g350/ or contact sales(at)protocolinsight.com for more information.
