New Software to Obtain Measurement Results without MIPI or Arbitrary Waveform Generator Expertise

Keysight Technologies recently announced introduced a software plug-in for the M8070A system software for M8000 Series BER test solutions. The M8085A MIPI C-PHY receiver test solution is designed for conformance and margin tests.Keysight-M8085

The MIPI C-PHY 1.0 standard supports camera and display applications. The standard comprises multilevel non-NRZ non-differential signaling. The Keysight M8190A arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) is the right instrument to generate such signals. The M8085A easy-to-use editor option enables you to set up the parameters and pattern content of test signals for turn-on and debug interactively from the GUI in familiar, application terms. During parameter adjustments, the software controls the AWG hardware to maintain uninterrupted signal generation.

In addition, the M8085A software provides the industry’s first complete and standard-conformant routines for calibration of signal parameters and physical layer (PHY) receiver tests. Thus, you can achieve results without expertise in the MIPI standard or with arbitrary waveform generators.

The software plug-in provides several options for selecting the error-detecting device. You can connect to the built-in detector in the device under test via the IBERReader interface, which transfers the test result to the M8085A software and displays the result in the GUI. Plus, it enables fully automated unattended tests.

The M8085A C-PHY software with various options is now available.
