Colorado Springs, Colorado, August 8, 2016 – Protocol Insight announces that UFS20COMP Test Executive is now a UFSA-certified UFS compliance test tool, as well as a protocol debug and analysis tool.

UFSA-certified compliance testing

UFS Test Executive is certified by the UFSA to verify compliance of UFS devices with the UFS Compliance Test Matrix v1.0 and the JESD224 Test Specification. For logo certification testing Test Executive can:

  • Automatically set up the analyzer, generator and DUT for each test
  • Allow auto-configuration and reconfiguration of speeds, link widths and LUNs during the testing process
  • Allow users to select and run individual or multiple CTS protocol tests
  • Provide detailed information for each test that has been run
  • Create printable PDF reports and CSV export files
  • Generate the UFSA Compliance Report

Protocol Insight has supported all of the UFSA IOT workshops, starting with the first in August 2015, and received certification as a UFS protocol compliance test tool after completion of the most recent IOT workshop.

”The Universal Flash Storage Association is excited to announce the first UFSA-certified compliance tool for verifying UFS devices to the Compliance Test Matrix,” said Lisa Rhoden, president of the Universal Flash Association. “With the availability of certified test tools it becomes easier for industry to obtain logo certification for UFS devices, while ensuring industry wide interoperability of devices.”

Protocol debug and analysis

In addition to UFSA-certified logo testing UFS Test Executive can perform deep packet inspection, checking against the JEDEC JESD220 UFS 2.x specs. It also performs extensive stress testing, executing hundreds of thousands of tests with multiple packet inspection rules per test. And by designing custom test cases a user can perform corner case and margin testing. Test Case Builder™ allows complex test case creation, with device control, command and response packet construction, Data Buffer and Payload support, and Loop and Compare functions.

See us in the UFSA booth (#707) at Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara, CA on August 9-11 where we will be demonstrating our UFS Test Executive with our partner Keysight Technologies and their U4431A MIPI M-PHY Protocol Analyzer.
