High Speed Inter Chip (HSIC) Protocol is being adopted very fast in electronic design industry. Engineers designing HSIC interface are finding extremely difficult to debug this serial bus by manually going through the serial NRZI electrical signals in oscilloscope and locate the problems. PGY-HSIC Protocol Trigger and Decode Analysis software allows HSIC Protocol aware real-time hardware based trigger to capture HSIC signals, decode and analyze it for any errors, bus status condition, correlate protocol level information with electrical signals.
PGY-HSIC Software runs inside Tektronix Make oscilloscopes such as DPO/MSO5000, DPO7000 and DPO/DSA/MSO70000 oscilloscope series. PGY-HSIC utilizes the hardware based real-time serial pattern trigger, long acquisition record length up to 125MB to provide superior HSIC Protocol Analysis Solution.
Easy HSIC Test Setup and Debug:
PGY-HSIC Software installed in Tektronix oscilloscopes can be launched by clicking on PGY-HSIC icon in oscilloscope desktop folder. Now user has simultaneous view and control to oscilloscope waveform display as well as PGY-HSIC Software. PGY-HSIC Software is set make all HSIC Protocol analysis. User can analyze HSIC single acquisition mode, Repetitive mode and as well as No Acq mode. In No Acq Mode, HSIC software analyses already captured HSIC signal that is present in the acquisition memory of the oscilloscope.
Powerful HSIC Protocol Aware Hardware Based Real-Time Trigger:
Simple easy to use HSIC protocol aware trigger features allows engineers to capture HSIC signals at specific event in HSIC bus.
Select any of live channels Ch1 to CH4 as trigger source and set trigger pattern. The trigger pattern could be either Sync pattern to any PID packet. PGY-HSIC Software has the flexibility chose sync pattern that end ‘00’ pattern or ‘11’ pattern at the end of 32 bit sync pattern. Threshold level allows user indentify the right threshold to distinguish logic 1 and logic 0. Protocol Aware trigger supporting trigger on sync and all PIDs.
Debugging of HSIC Signals:
Debugging capabilities such as CRC error checks, number of data byte counts in data packet and correlating protocol information with electrical signals quickly locates problems in HSIC protocol.
PGY-HSIC lists all decoded data in decode table in HSIC Protocol format. The Protocol analysis capability computes the CRC values and checks with decoded CRC value for any CRC errors.
- CRC5 error
- CRC16 error
- Bit Stuffing error
- PID Mismatch error
- Invalid PID
- EOP Length error
- Frame Length error
By selecting any HSIC protocol packet data in decode table highlights corresponding electrical waveform in detail view. The Bus diagram below the waveform indicates the protocol data for waveform. This waveform can be further analyzed by zooming out, placing cursors, fit to screen. There is flexibility to snap and store the waveform image for report with flexibility to adding comments for image.
Searching for Specific PID, address, end point and data allows us to focus on area of interest in long record length up to 125MB of data.
While testing and debugging HSIC protocol using 100MB of oscilloscope record length, hundreds HSIC packets are expected to present. In order to focus on the right packet of interest in the decoded, it is important look for packets of interest. Filter feature in HSIC enables viewing the desired packets in the decoded data.
PGY-HSIC Protocol Trigger and decode Analysis software provides flexibility of exporting the decode data in txt and csv file format. Report Generation capability allows user to have different waveforms images including the oscilloscope screenshot in pdf format report. Report header, comments and Test attributes can be added to report.
