PGY-I3C-EX-PD I3C Protocol Exerciser and Analyzer Details

I3C Protocol Analyzer(PGY-I3C-EX-PD) is the Protocol Analyzer with multiple features to capture and debug communication between host and design under test.I3C Serial bus interface is emerging as a chosen interface for all future sensor connectivity in mobile phone and automotive Industry. This could also be chosen for low cost, reliable interface for future embedded electronic applications to address the new data intensive applications.

PGY-I3C-EX-PD is the leading instrument that enables the design and test engineers to test the I3C designs for its specifications by configuring PGY-I3C-EX-ED as master/slave, generating I3C traffic with error injection capability and decoding I3C Protocol decode packets.

Multi-domain View

Multidomain View provides the complete view of I3C Protocol activity in single GUI. User can easily setup the analyzer to generate I3C/I2C traffic using a GUI or script. User can set different trigger conditions from the setup menu to capture Protocol activity at specific event and decode the transition between Master and Slave. The decoded results can be viewed in timing diagram and Protocol listing window with autocorrelation. State machine view provides switching of state machine between master and slave for design validation. This comprehensive view of information makes it industry best, offering an easy to use solution to debug the I3C protocol activity.


PGY-I3C-EX-PD supports I3C traffic generation using GUI and Script. User can generate simple traffic generation using the GUI to test the DUT. Script based GUI provides flexibility to emulate the complete expected traffic in real world including error injections. In this sample script user can generate I3C traffic as below.

  • SET Dynamic Address using slave static
  • SETMWL with Data Parity Error
  • GETMWL with Command Parity Error
  • ENTHDR0 DDR mode with CRC Error

Timing Diagram and Protocol Listing View

Timing view provides the plot of SCL and SDA signals with bus diagram. Overlaying of Protocol bits on the digital timing waveform will help easy debugging of Protocol decoded data. Cursor and Zoom features will make it convenient to analyze Protocol in timing diagram for any timing errors.

Protocol window provides the decoded packet information in each state and all packet details. Selected frame in Protocol listing window will be auto-correlated in timing view to view the timing information of the packet.

Powerful Trigger Capabilities

PGY-I3C-EX-PD supports Auto, simple and advanced trigger capabilities. Analyzer can trigger on any of the Protocol packets such as Broadcast, Directed or Private message. Advanced Trigger provides the flexibility to monitor Multiple trigger conditions and can set multiple state trigger machine. User can initiate a timer and trigger on set timer values.
