Montréal, Canada, September 15, 2016 — Introspect Technology, a MIPI Alliance Contributor Member, has announced the introduction of the SV3C-DPTX MIPI D-PHY Generator, an ultra-compact solution for the protocol verification and electrical validation of high port count components based on the latest MIPI Alliance D-PHY 2.0 specification. The generator provides the ability to create arbitrary protocol traffic according to the CSI-2 and DSI-2 specifications as well as custom patterns with complete D-PHY 2.0 signaling characteristics. Featuring programmable voltage, timing, frequency, and pre-emphasis controls, the generator represents a future-proof test solution for a range of existing and future MIPI D-PHY specifications. The generator is also extremely miniature thus saving valuable lab or production test floor space.
“The name of the game in modern validation laboratory setups is integration, and the introduction of this latest iteration of the SV3C is testimony to Introspect’s unwavering commitment to delivering the most innovative solutions for the industry’s pressing challenges,” said Dr. Mohamed Hafed, Introspect Technology CEO. “Whether the task is to verify broadcast-grade CSI-2 aggregator systems, to exercise the latest high-definition multi-port DSI-2 display driver ICs, or to perform multi-site data collection on D-PHY links, the SV3C-DPTX offers an unprecedented form factor and a highly intuitive software automation environment,” he continued.
D-PHY has been a workhorse for the mobile industry for a number of years, and it continues to evolve in support of innovations in mobile and mobile-influenced applications. And with multi-port implementations of D-PHY come unique test requirements both at the protocol level and the electrical level. The SV3C-DPTX generator, which will start shipping in Q4 of this year, addresses these requirements by offering link partitioning and alignment features and by providing a unified programming environment for multi-link operation.
