Eclipse X34 MIPI M-PHY Protocol Analyzer

The Teledyne LeCroy Eclipse MIPI M-PHY protocol analyzer is for customers developing M-PHY GEAR 1/2/3 at up to x4 lane width. Supporting MPCIe and SSIC, this protocol analyzer is the first to support the PCIe 3.1 specification. M-PCIe combines the PCI Express (PCIe) protocol layer with the low power M-PHY physical layer bringing high-end PCIe performance and software capabilities to low power mobile devices. SSIC is the USB-IF specification for SuperSpeed Interchip protocol and runs 5Gps USB traffic over the MIPI MPHY bus.

The Eclipse X34 can monitor, capture, decode and analyze multiple transmission modes with different bit-signaling, clocking schemes and rates that support bandwidth ranges (M-PHY Gears 1 to 3). The analyzer is gear 4 upgradable. Two independent reference clocks, Rate A and B operate at 19.2 and 26 MHz with 8B/10B, encoding can be tracked and displayed. All PMW Modes G0 to G7 are supported and displayed in the trace view. The application display is highly configurable and can be modified to most users debugging styles. A customizable multi-state trigger makes it easy to discover protocol issues on the bus. Features such as multiple local, global timers and counters allow the user advanced control to create sophisticated trigger sequences. The Eclipse can time correlate its traces to other Teledyne LeCroy supported protocols and buses. This multi-protocol support will make it useful to help debug DDR memory and other serial protocols on low power devices.

The Eclipse X34 features up to 4 lanes of traffic capture and up to 32 GB trace depth. Teledyne LeCroy will also provide a wide variety of probing connectivity options, including SMA, multi-lead solder-down tapping, a M.2 form factor interposer and a special Mid-bus probe designed for M-PHY. The M-PHY Mid-bus probe has been defined by Teledyne LeCroy and will build on the existing footprint for PCI Express giving developers another method to get probing access to M-PHY signals.

The Eclipse x34 can be connected to the host by either USB 2.0/3.0 or Ethernet 10/100/1000 LAN as standard features. By connecting over a LAN, engineers can operate the system remotely (e.g., control an analyzer operating in a remote lab). Also, engineers working collaboratively can time-share use of a single analyzer, reducing the need for multiple systems, and increasing the cost effectiveness of the product.

The Eclipse X34 is licensable to accommodate different lane, memory and gear configurations to match user requirements with available budgets. The upward compatibility and 13 month warranty of the Eclipse also provides investment protection for current Gear 1/2/3 users who plan to upgrade to Gear 4 devices in the future.

MIPI M-PHY SMA Probe

The Teledyne LeCroy M-PHY x4 SMA Probe allows developers using an embedded M-PHY bus in their PCB designs to quickly tap into the signal traces through SMA connectors and capture bus traffic for protocol analysis and debugging.

The probe features SMA connectors for each of the 16 differential transmit/receiver pairs that support up to a x4 link or 4 differential pairs per x1 link. Each SMA connection uses termination as defined by the specification to minimize signal degradation of the M-PHY bus signals, while providing reliable capture of all M-PHY traffic.

The probe will connect to a Teledyne LeCroy M-PHY Protocol Analyzer via an iPass straight cable, and supports M-PHY data rates including GEAR1, GEAR2, GEAR3 at link widths from x1 to x4.

Eclipse X34 Multi-lead Probe Datasheet
The Teledyne LeCroy M-PHY Multi-lead Probe allows developers using an embedded  M-PHY bus in their PCB designs to tap into the signal traces directly and capture bus traffic for protocol analysis and debugging.
 
The probe allows for individual connection to each separate transmit-pair and receive-pair of each serial lane, allowing flexibility to connect to any accessible points on the surface of the PCB.  Each connection uses a high-impedance electrical probe to minimize perturbation of the M-PHY bus signals, while providing reliable capture of all M-PHY traffic.
 
The probe will connect to a Teledyne LeCroy Eclipse X34 M-PHY Protocol Analyzer via a Multi-lead Probe Pod.  Support is provided for M-PHY data rates of GEAR1, GEAR2 and GEAR3, and at lane widths from x1 to x4.  Each individual lane connection is made by using  two 294 mm (11.6”) extender coax cables connecting into 71 mm (2.8”) flextip connectors which each are attached to an individual transmit-pair or receive-pair on the surface of the PCB.
