Protocol Insight™ Announces Protocol Debug and Conformance Analysis for MIPI® Unified Protocol (UniPro)

UNI16COMP UniPro Test Executive™ offers deep packet inspection with protocol aware rule checking, custom Test Case Builder™, stress testing and analysis of the UniPro standard

Colorado Springs, Colorado, March 11, 2015 – Protocol Insight today announced they will demonstrate their new UniPro Test Executive at the MIPI® Alliance meeting in Seattle, WA USA on March 12th. Protocol Insight’s UNI16COMP UniPro Test Executive extends the capabilities of their current UFS Test Executive to UniPro debugging and conformance testing. These capabilities include:

Deep packet inspection performed with a unique protocol-aware Rule Checker engine with full protocol decode and rule checking against the MIPI UniPro v1.61 spec and UniPro v1.0 CTS.

Extensive stress testing, executing hundreds of thousands of tests with multiple packet inspection rules. Execute any test or set of tests against any controllable DUT configurations, in ascending, descending or random order, looped in nest order. Stop after defined number of tests, failures or warnings. All failures and warnings are tagged, allowing the user to find, view and analyze the full test sequence in the Keysight Technologies U4431A analyzer.

Design custom test cases to test corner cases or introduce errors for margin, stress, or error recovery testing. Test Case Builder allows complex test case construction, with virtually unlimited transactions, device control, and packet construction. Local and global variables and run conditions are used to create test case conditions. Syntax checker verifies custom test case validity.

Extended analysis by grouping, filtering and summarizing results to get a quantitative understanding of overall device performance. Analysis can be done by test parameters such as warning status, test category, individual tests, or test rules, or by packet characteristics.

Test summary and packet decode reports offer a complete picture of bus traffic and packet errors.

Conformance testing to the MIPI UniPro v1.61 spec and v1.0 CTS.

Supports both host and device testing, initiating tests with a command from the Keysight Technologies packet generator.

Pricing and availability:

A beta release of the UNI16COMP UniPro Test Executive will be shipping in Q2. Contact for schedule and pricing information.
