Protocol-Decoding Oscilloscope Software

Agilent2Agilent Technologies has introduced the N8819A USB 3.0 SSIC and N8820A MIPI CSI-3 protocol decoders. The software decodes USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Inter-Chip (SSIC) and MIPI Camera Serial Interface 3 (CSI-3) protocols on oscilloscopes. The protocol decoders provide engineers with a fast, easy way to validate and debug SSIC and CSI-3 interfaces.

The N8819A USB 3.0 SSIC and N8820A MIPI CSI-3 protocol decoders are designed to run on 90000 A-, 90000 X-, and 90000 Q-Series oscilloscopes. They decode protocol packets for the SSIC V1.0 and MIPI CSI-3 V1.0 specifications, respectively. The decoders provide accurate timing measurements associated with the protocols.

The software supports correlated protocol decode information with the analog waveforms; symbol, packet, frame, and payload detail of the protocols; high-speed (HS-BURST) and low-speed PWM (PWM-BURST) transmission modes; cyclical redundancy check (CRC) on the packets; and search capability for various frames, sequences, and errors.

Both protocol decoders can be used on Infiniium 90000 Q-Series oscilloscopes, which deliver real-time bandwidth of up to 33 GHz on four channels. The oscilloscopes feature bandwidth upgradability to 63 GHz and low noise and jitter measurement floor performance.

The Agilent N8819A USB 3.0 SSIC and N8820A MIPI CSI-3 protocol decoders cost $3,500 and $3,000, respectively.
