I3C Protocol Trigger & Decode Software

I3C interface would make significant changes to the mode in which sensors are interfaced to host processor in mobile and automotive applications PGY-I3C-PD Protocol Trigger & Decode Software enables engineers to quickly decode the protocol intensive I3C signals. It enables easy debugging of I3C Protocol issues by triggering on specific I3C Protocol packet and content and decoding the acquired waveform. PGY-I3C-PD provides industry first protocol decode capabilities in Tektronix windows oscilloscope.

I3C Protocol Trigger & Decode Software

PGY-I3C-PD Software runs inside Tektronix make oscilloscopes such as DPO/MSO5000, DPO7000 and DPO/DSA/MSO70000 oscilloscope series. PGY-I3C-PD utilizes the hardware based real- time I3C protocol aware trigger, protocol analysis of long acquisition record length up to 125MB to provide superior I3CProtocol Analysis result at the press of a button.


The product features are as follows:

  • I3C protocol Analysis using oscilloscope live channel data or stored I3C signals
  • Powerful I3C real-time protocol aware hardware-based trigger capabilities.
  • Displays the decoded data in I3C frame format, SDR, DDR, TSL and TSP format.
  • Links protocol decoded packet to waveform in oscilloscope display.
  • Error status check as defined in I3C specification
  • Protocol view provides bit level decoding of each I3C packet.
  • Detail view correlates physical layer waveform with I3C packet data
  • Ability to process long acquisition memory enables the decoding of more protocol activities
  • Search capabilities to locate protocol event
  • Filter capabilities to view information of Interest
  • Documentation by exporting data in CSV and TXT file format
  • Report Generation

Easy I3C Protocol Test Setup and Debug:

​PGY-I3C-PD Software installed in Tektronix oscilloscopes can be launched by clicking on PGY-I3C-PD icon in oscilloscope desktop folder. Now user has simultaneous view and control to oscilloscope as well as PGY-I3C-PD Software. User can analyze I3C in single acquisition mode, Repetitive mode and as well as No Acq mode. In No Acq Mode, I3C software analyses already captured I3C signal that is present in the acquisition memory of the ​oscilloscope.

Powerful I3C Protocol Aware Hardware-Based Real-Time Trigger:

Simple easy-to-use I3C protocol-aware trigger features allow engineers to capture I3C signals at specific events in the I3C interface.

The trigger can be set for different commands of SDR_Broadcast, SDR_Direct, and SDR_message. I3C software provides the flexibility to select a combination of any command from any three frame types. This feature can be used on DPO7000, DPO/MSO70000 oscilloscope series.

Protocol View

PGY-I3C-PD Software provides the protocol view, where protocol activity is listed with all frame content. Users can select any I3C frame and view its bit-level decoding to debug protocol issues. Search and Filter features allows user to quickly focus on the specific event.

Protocol Analysis of I3C Signals:

Detail view in I3C Protocol software allows the user to correlate protocol activity with physical layer waveform. The bus diagram in detail view shows protocol packet content. Decoded bit level information is overlayed on the waveform to relate the packet level information to the waveform.

Documentation of Protocol Analysis

PGY-I3C-PD I3C Protocol Trigger and decode software provides the flexibility of exporting the decode data in txt and CSV file format. Report Generation capability allows users to have different waveform images including the oscilloscope screenshot in pdf format report. Report header, comments, and test attributes can be added to the report.
