Falcon G500C/G550C and G400C/G450C
UFS/UniPro Exerciser/Analyzers

The Falcon Series are the established industry standard for UFS and UniPro debug and compliance test.

The Falcon G500C is an integrated UFS protocol analyzer and UniPro protocol analyzer that captures x2 bi-directional links as a “sniffer”. It supports up to UFS 4.0, UniPro 2.0, and MIPI M-PHY 5.0 HS-G5.

The Falcon G550C is an exerciser/analyzer; it is identical to the G500C protocol analyzer but is also a protocol exerciser that can generate link traffic on a x2 bi-directional link while simultaneously capturing the response traffic from the DUT. The Falcon G550C exerciser can execute the UniPro 2.0, UniPro 1.8 and JEDEC JESD224A UFS Compliance/Conformance Test Suites (CTS), and will have support for UFS 4.0 CTS testing.

The Falcon G400C is an integrated UFS protocol analyzer and UniPro protocol analyzer that captures x2 bi-directional links as a “sniffer”. It supports up to UFS 3.1, UniPro 1.8, and MIPI M-PHY 4.1 HS-G4.

The Falcon G450C is an exerciser/analyzer; it is identical to the G400C protocol analyzer but is also a protocol exerciser that can generate link traffic on a x2 bi-directional link while simultaneously capturing the response traffic from the DUT. The Falcon G450C exerciser can execute the UniPro 1.8 and JEDEC JESD224A UFS Compliance/Conformance Test Suites (CTS), and has support for UFS 3.1 CTS testing.

 


The Falcon series are available with the following features:

Smart Tune™ equalization optimizes signal acquisition at the analyzer to ensure error-free MPHY symbol capture. This is critical when the DUT has poor trace routing, or the cabling to the test fixture causes signal integrity or probing issues.

Eye Monitor constructs an eye diagram of the link to determine link quality. Qualitative measurements can be done on the eye diagram for jitter, noise, and eye opening.

Trace Validation™ is a patented Artificial intelligence (AI) tool that uses complex state machine logic to analyze traces algorithmically without user inference. It analyzes bi-directional UniPro and UFS traffic, performing protocol sequence and timing analysis and packet header and payload inspection.

Events views displays raw UniPro symbols as packet events on the bus in a unique time-aligned display. UniPro Events view displays fillers, Prepare, SYNC, Hibern8, sleep, stall and other M-PHY level packets. UFS Events displays each individual UFS packet type separately. UniPro and UFS Events views presents a complete picture of all events and allows drill-down to the lowest level bytes.

Compliance/Conformance Verification executes JEDEC and MIPI CTS test cases.

Verify compliance of UFS devices with the UFSA UFS Compliance Test Matrix.

Stimulus with full UniPro stack in HW allows host emulation and the creation of specific traffic on the link, and offers extensive error injection.

Run Time Control stress testing controls the DUT and executes tests automatically. Stop after any number of loops or No Result Test Cases, then analyze the results with Trace Validation.

Design custom test cases to introduce errors for corner case, margin, or stress testing.

Streaming capture uses the full 40Gbs bandwidth of Thunderbolt 3 to store link traffic directly to disk in real time.
