Protocol Insight™ Announces MIPI® UniPro (Unified Protocol) Protocol Conformance, Debug and Analysis Beta Release

UNI16COMP UniPro Test Executive™ offers CTS conformance testing, intelligent Trace Validation, Stimulus mode, Test Case Builder and stress testing

Colorado Springs, Colorado, August 14, 2015 – Protocol Insight today announced the beta release of UniPro Test Executive. UNI16COMP UniPro Test Executive extends the capabilities of their current UFS Test Executive to UniPro conformance testing and debugging.  New capabilities of UniPro Test Executive include three distinct analysis modes and a new Statistics window.


Trace Validation mode

Intelligent Trace Validation mode identifies transactions on the UniPro bus by analyzing millions of packets in a trace capture, then evaluates the protocol sequences and individual packets for conformance to the UniPro 1.6 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.

CTS mode

In CTS mode Test Executive initiates conformance test cases, then uses the Trace Validation engine to verify that the resulting protocol sequences and packets conform to the UniPro v1.0 CTS.

Extensive reporting and analysis tools include reports by test parameters – status, test category, individual tests, or test rules, and by packet characteristics – packet number, byte, speed, link, etc. Summary and full reports and pass/fail reports are also provided.

Stimulus mode

Stimulus mode allows Test Executive to control the Keysight Technologies U4431A to create specific traffic on the bus, and also has the ability to do error insertion.


The new Statistics window provides an overview of trace characteristics in Trace Validation mode, enabling sum, filter and sort by Tests, Variables, Attributes, or Values such as TRG_UPR, Start-of-burst and End-of-burst, NAC, and PACP_CAP.


Pricing, configuration and availability:

UNI16COMP UniPro Test Executive beta is shipping now, and operates in conjunction with the Keysight Technologies U4431A MIPI M-PHY Protocol Analyzer.  Contact for pricing information or to request a demo or trail license.
