Protocol Insight™ Announces v1.0 UniPro Test Executive for MIPI® Unified Protocol Conformance, Debug and Analysis

UNI16COMP UniPro Test Executive™ offers CTS conformance testing, intelligent Trace Validation, link stimulus, stress testing, custom test case creation and statistical analysis


Colorado Springs, Colorado, September 25, 2015 – Protocol Insight announces that v1.0 of their UniPro Test Executive is now shipping. Key features of the new UNI16COMP UniPro Test Executive v1.0 include:

Intelligent Trace Validation to analyze bi-directional UniPro links, performing protocol sequence and packet inspection rule checking based on the nature of the traffic. Intelligent Trace Validation uses a unique protocol-aware rule checker engine to perform validation against the MIPI UniPro v1.61 spec.

Conformance Verification of UniPro v1.6 and v1.61 with Conformance Test Suite (CTS) v1.0. The UniPro CTS defines 78 tests for listing in the MIPI Alliance Product Registry, and Test Executive currently supports 46 Stimulus mode and 18 Trace Validation mode CTS test cases, plus a broad range of debug test cases, including 14 NAC Condition, 40 Power Mode Change, and 10+ other misc. tests. More CTS tests are being added daily.

Perform extensive stress testing in CTS and Stimulus modes, executing hundreds of thousands of tests automatically. Stop after any number of loops or No Result Test Cases.

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

Statistics window provides an overview of trace characteristics in CTS and Trace Validation modes, enabling sum, filter and sort by various datatypes.

Stimulus allows Test Executive to control the Keysight U4431A packet generator to create specific traffic on the link, and has the ability to do error insertion into the UniPro traffic stream.


Pricing, configuration and availability:

UNI16COMP UniPro Test Executive 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.
