Protocol Insight demonstrated UFS 3.1 traffic generation and protocol analysis during MIPI Alliance DevCon 2020

The Protocol Insight UFS 3.1 traffic generation and protocol analysis demonstration is now available for viewing on Protocol Insight’s YouTube channel

Colorado Springs, Colorado, November 17, 2020 – Protocol Insight demonstrated UFS 3.1 traffic generation and analysis at the recent MIPI DevCon 2020 Virtual Event using the Falcon G450B UFS Protocol Analyzer and Exerciser.

The 10-minute demonstration followed the typical chronological test debug sequence, beginning with connection to the device under test (DUT), test setup, capturing a trace, and analysis of the results. Results analysis included the use of Trace Validation™ to analyze UFS Command / Response packet latency and set guard bands for pass/fail latency tests.

This demonstration, along with other in-depth videos, is now available on the Protocol Insight YouTube channel or by following  this link.

The MIPI Alliance is a global standards organization serving industries that develop mobile and mobile-influenced devices. As mobile connectivity becomes increasingly pervasive, more industries are leveraging mobile technologies in their designs. These “mobile-influenced” sectors, such as the automotive industry and the burgeoning Internet of Things, are benefitting from the interface specifications MIPI Alliance provides.

UFS (Universal Flash Storage) is a high-performance memory interface designed for use in applications where power consumption needs to be minimized, including mobile systems such as smartphones and tablets as well as automotive applications. It utilizes the MIPI Alliance M-PHY® physical layer and UniProsm link layer protocols and delivers significant improvements in throughput and system performance.
