Colorado Springs, Colorado, September 5, 2017 – Protocol Insight announces the availability of the Falcon v1.4 SW/FW with enhanced UFS test, debug and analysis capabilities, including a new UFS Events window and Trace Validation Builder for UFS. With this release Protocol Insight is also announcing availability of a solder-down probe supporting x1 and x2 UniPro links.

UFS Events view displays events on the UniPro link in a unique time-aligned display, allowing the engineer to easily see all UFS protocol events occurring in the complete trace, while drilling down to the time slice around the UFS packet of interest.

Low level information provided by UFS Events view include Speed, Packet Index, Packet timestamp and duration, and Request and Response packet times.

UFS Trace Validation Builder allows the user to construct complex multi-state search criteria to analyze a trace algorithmically without user intervention. The Falcon software library provides pre-defined Trace Validation tests for the user to analyze UFS traffic for any deviations from the UFS specification or any other abnormalities of interest to the engineer. Or the user can use UFS Trace Validation Builder to create custom Trace Validation tests from scratch or from existing tests in the Falcon software library.
