  • Flexibility to trigger on command or response
  • Offers all the standard triggers patterns with command and Response
  • Flexibility to edit trigger pattern

Automated Electrical Validation and Protocol Decode Software
As per the specification of eMMC and SD, the measurement limits are different for read and write operation. The PGY-MMC-SD measurement algorithms automatically find the read and write operations and validates with the respective limits. This enables you to save time in identifying the read and write operation and isolating any compliance issues.

Analyze lists all electrical measurements with pass/fail report

  • Lists electrical measurements with mean, minimum and maximum values measured for the entire acquired waveform
  • Indicates if measurement exceeds the min or max limits by orange color
  • Lower and Upper limits of the electrical measurements are compared against measured values
  • Supports Electrical Measurements as per eMMC 4.41 and 4.51 and UHS3.1 Specification
  • Automated identification read and write operation and apply electrical limits as per eMMC and UHS-I specification

Timing Parameters between CMD, Response and Data
eMMC specifies the minimum and maximum cycles to present between the host and device to ensure interoperability. PGY-MMC-SD analyzes the data for these specifications and offers results.

Protocol View
PGY-MMC-SD software lists all the protocol activity between the host and card. Engineers can now quickly view the command and its corresponding response from card. Selected protocol activity details are listed on right side of the list table. Now Engineers can know the errors reported by card or any other message to host without
struggling to know the content of each message.

Characterization of PHY layer by custom limit setup
PGY-MMC-SD is not just for standard electrical compliance testing, you can also vary the limits and test your device with custom limits. The intuitive limits and reference level setup allows you to configure the limits and reference levels for your custom testing needs. This enables you to test your device beyond the specification and characterize it.

Powerful Debug environment: Detail view
In Detail View, engineers can view the analog waveform, details of protocol and electrical measurements in single view. If there is any failure in electrical measurement or error in protocol messages, designers can quickly correlate the protocol data with analog waveforms. These protocol errors can be caused due to the failure in electrical measurements. User can select any row in the detail view; corresponding analog waveform will be zoomed and displayed. In the same row, engineers can view all the electrical measurements corresponding to the selected row. Utility features such as zoom, cursors, and markers make custom measurement while debugging.
