Agilent Announces MIPI M-PHY Testing Solution

EETimes-Europe: Agilent Technologies has announced a MIPI M-PHY test solution for debugging and validating all layers of M-PHY devices, including physical and protocol layers, at speeds up to 5.8 Gb/sec. The Agilent solution consists of oscilloscopes, protocol analyzers and exercisers, and bit error-rate testers (BERTs) using custom M-PHY stimulus software. Each instrument comes with custom M-PHY-ready software to support design teams through the entire product design process.

The solution is not cheap:

  • The N4903B J-BERT high-performance serial BERT is available now, starting at $102,000 for a 7-Gb/sec pattern generator configuration.
  • The N5990A-165 test automation software will be available later this month and is priced at $10,500.
  • The M-PHY-based DigRF v4 exerciser/analyzers are currently available starting at $30,000.
  • Agilent 90000A and 90000X-Series oscilloscopes with bandwidths up to 32 GHz are available now. Prices start at $60,000 for 6-GHz oscilloscopes.
  • M-PHY TX test automation will be available in September.
