Video Tutorials by Introspect Technology
Created by Engineers. For Engineers.
We’ve created a series of tutorials designed to guide you in your Design and Test projects. Follow along as our engineers explain optimal setups for our award-winning instruments, the basic concepts for MIPI, connectors, probes, boards and wiring. Our objective is to reduce the time and money spent on getting your high-performance applications from design concept to final production.
Intro to Introspect ESP
This video provides a basic overview of Introspect ESP running on an Altera Stratix V Signal Integrity Kit. The video also presents the basic concepts of the tool and how, with no FPGA experience, you are able to bring up, measure, and optimize a SerDes link in minutes.
Performing Receiver Optimization Using Introspect ESP
Here, we show how easy it is to optimize receiver equalization parameters on a high-speed link. Introspect ESP includes pre-built functions for optimization so that you spend less time worrying and more time developing.
Dynamically Changing Parameters within an Introspect Test Procedure
The last time we checked, SerDes interfaces had thousands of parameter values to control and modify, and this number keeps increasing exponentially. In this video, we show how to modify transmit pre-emphasis in Introspect ESP, and how the combination of a clean user-experience and an ultra-capable scripting technology enable maximum productivity.
Introspect ESP Jitter Injection Demo
Jitter injection is a breeze to achieve with Introspect ESP. The following video illustrates this.
Introspect ESP Shmoo Demo
Back to the topic of optimization and the large volume of data that needs to be connected, here we illustrate how you can set up multi-dimensional sweeps within minutes. We recognize that the task of acquiring the data itself can be quite time-consuming, so we have worked hard to make sure that the task of developing the code is a breeze. The goal is to spend time acquiring the data and not fighting with programming intricacy.
Basic C-PHY Pattern Generation Using the Introspect SV3C
Basic concepts of the pattern generator component class and the data capture component class are described. A single command is all it takes to produce compliant C-PHY packet loops for receiver testing.
Performing Automated C-PHY Voltage Sweeps Using the SV3C
In this video, we show how easy and rapid it is to perform a complete common-mode voltage characterization of a 4-lane C-PHY link using the Introspect ESP Software and the SV3C Test System.
C-PHY Global Timing Parameter Control in the SV3C
In this video, we illustrate the ability of the SV3C to dynamically adjust C-PHY packet parameters on the fly. Such capability represents tremendous productivity enhancement during design validation as well as electrical validation of systems that incorporate C-PHY links.
Advanced Topics in C-PHY
More advanced testing is performed in this video. A non-repeating packet is programmed using the generator and then measured with the analyzer. True to Introspect’s tradition, a characterization loop is performed with autonomous pass-fail detection.
Introspect’s MIPI D-PHY Receiver CTS Application
Receiver conformance testing is a major activity due to the complexity of conventional hardware and software tools. Introspect has created a refreshingly simple platform for D-PHY Receiver CTS Testing, the platform consisting of the SV3C DPTX D-PHY Generator and the D-PHY CTS.
Controlling D-PHY Parameters Using the SV3C DPTX D-PHY Generator
The SV3C DPTX D-PHY Generator is capable of controlling voltage and timing parameters rapidly and efficiently using the Introspect ESP software.
