Teledyne LeCroy Announces Comprehensive MIPI M-PHY Protocol, Transmitter, and Receiver Test Solutions for the Mobile Market

CHICAGO, March 10, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —  MIPI Alliance Members Meeting — Recognizing the need for comprehensive test tools in the mobile market, Teledyne LeCroy is launching a family of test and measurement products to help speed the design development of mobile devices. Adding to its already robust physical layer test tools for MIPI, Teledyne LeCroy introduces the Eclipse x34™ Protocol Analyzer for M-PHY protocol test, and the PeRT3™ Phoenix M-PHY Receiver Test option for M-PHY receiver test. These new products join the company's existing oscilloscope tools for M-PHY transmitter test and protocol decode. An automated compliance test solution leveraging these oscilloscope tools will be available by the end of 2014. This full family of products offers end-to-end testing for the mobile market, and will be showcased at the MIPI Alliance Members Meeting in Chicago on Tuesday.

Teledyne LeCroy is a leading provider of oscilloscopes, protocol analyzers and related test and measurement solutions that enable companies across a wide range of industries to design and test electronic devices of all types.

The Teledyne LeCroy Eclipse x34™ Protocol Analyzer is a standalone M-PHY analyzer. The hardware will support multi-lane x1 through x4 at HS GEAR1, GEAR2 and GEAR3. Hardware connectivity supports multiple probing methods including, M.2, SMA, Multi-lead and Mid Bus solutions. The Eclipse x34 will support the M-PCIe, SSIC and Unipro/UFS protocols. The Eclipse X34 will begin shipping third quarter of 2014. As a long time member of both the PCI-SIG and USB-IF, Teledyne LeCroy brings world class experience to both the M-PCIe and SSIC protocol markets. The initial release of the Eclipse X34™ will support M-PCIe, followed by SSIC and then UFS.

PeRT3 Phoenix is the first protocol aware receiver test solution for the M-PHY bus. New capabilities of the PeRT3 Phoenix include physical layer receiver testing for the MIPI M-PHY protocol. Added features for M-PHY are support of High Speed GEAR1, GEAR2 and GEAR3, as well as support for Low Speed PWM Mode (G0-G7), auto-calibration and margin testing. Engineers developing next generation mobile devices based on the M-PHY physical layer can now use this solution to resolve design challenges and overcome signal integrity issues by performing automated conformance, product validation and margin tests with ease. Support for HS GEAR1, GEAR2 and GEAR3 and PWM Mode (G0-G7) gives designers the flexibility to perform tests at the full range of data rates for comprehensive insights into their designs. The auto calibration support for high speed GEARs reduces the complexity of setup, saves time, and enables users to test devices faster. Margin testing for high speed gears allows designers to validate and stress their devices to maximum potential resulting in competitive technical specifications for their products The M-PHY Receiver Test option will be available for the PeRT3 Phoenix in July 2014.

An additional part of the M-PHY product family is the TeleScan PE utility that uses a highly descriptive graphical user interface to show PCIe bus information in a tree-structured format, detailed with textual information and register diagrams from the specification. PCIe 1.1, 2.0, and 3.0 and now M-PCIe based devices can be scanned with this utility to understand more about configurations and register settings. M-PCIe devices are automatically detected and information contained in the M-PCIe extended capabilities register (such M-PCIe current link speed or gears and M-PCIe max link width) are presented in the summary screen for quick review. Other configuration space registers can be both read and written in order to facilitate user designed tests. The utility will support scanning on host machines using Microsoft Windows® 7 or Windows 8, as well as popular Linux systems.

The powerful MIPI M-PHY oscilloscope protocol decode, physical layer testing, and eye diagram analysis package simplifies MIPI design and debug. Physical layer measurements and decoded protocol information are easy to view side-by-side, providing correlation between the physical layer and protocol details. This set of physical layer measurements will be leveraged to provide a compliance solution within the automated QualiPHY framework.
