At the industry’s first-ever integrated testing of UFS devices, Protocol Insight’s Test Executive platform supported testing of the MIPI® UniPro™ and JEDEC® UFS protocol standards used in Universal Flash Storage
Colorado Springs, Colorado, August 27, 2015 – Protocol Insight today announced their involvement in the recent Universal Flash Storage Association (UFSA) Compliance Workshop with their UFS and UniPro Test Executive™ products. A goal of this workshop for the UFSA was to validate the set of industry standard test procedures selected by the UFSA for UFS product certification.
Protocol Insight’s UFS Test Executive offers protocol compliance testing to the JESD224 UFS Compliance Test Spec (CTS), and verification of conformance to the JESD220B UFS 2.0 specification. UniPro Test Executive verifies conformance to the MIPI Alliance UniPro link layer specification v1.61 and the v1.0 Conformance Test Suite.
“Reliable and efficient execution of the reduced test matrix for UFS and UniPro is essential to enabling effective UFS certification,” said Perry Keller, Chair of the UFSA Compliance Committee and UFSA Board member for Keysight Technologies. “The availability of tools from independent test vendors such as Protocol Insight helped the Workshop exceed all expectations for testing UFS hosts, devices and intellectual property (IP).”
“Universal Flash Storage memory offers unparalleled performance, in part by leveraging underlying MIPI M-PHY and UniPro technologies,” said Joel Huloux, Chairman of the Board for MIPI Alliance. “The MIPI Alliance is excited to see the adoption of UFS memory technology accelerating, and congratulates the UFSA on a successful compliance test workshop.”
