    MIPI Webinar to Explore Benefits, Features of New Debug for I3C Interface

    Next week, MIPI Debug Working Group Chair Enrico Carrieri and working group member Matthew Schnoor will take an in-depth look at the recently released MIPI Debug for I3CSM v1.0, which allows system designers to dynamically debug and test application processors, power management integrated circuits, modems and other power-managed components.

    MIPI Debug for I3C v1.0 Now Available

    The smaller and more power-constrained systems being developed today for the Internet of Things (IoT), mobile devices, automotive and other use cases demonstrate the value of low-bandwidth interfaces for debug and trace. At the same time, the flexibility and scalability that these new use cases require have revealed crucial shortcomings in legacy low-bandwidth interfaces that are structured statically, such as JTAG/cJTAG, I2C and UART.

    MIPI Debug and Trace Featured in Embedded Computing Design and Electronics Media

    Earlier this year, the full lineup of MIPI debug and trace specifications was made available to the broader community, giving developers not only a standard, layered set of interfaces and protocols, but also an alternative to using expensive proprietary testing tools.

    In recent articles in Electronics Media and Embedded Computing Design, Enrico Carrieri, chair of the MIPI Debug Working Group, shares how MIPI Alliance’s broad portfolio of debug and trace specifications can be used to streamline development for mobile, Internet of Things (IoT), 5G, automotive and many other applications.

    MIPI Alliance Releases Debug and Trace Specifications to Developers

    The MIPI Alliance's broad portfolio of debug and trace specifications has streamlined device development both in and beyond the mobile industry. MIPI Alliance members that have adopted these specifications as alternatives to using dedicated debug and trace equipment have cut costs and accelerated the development of high-quality products.

    Good News: MIPI SyS-T Is Now Part of Linux Kernel

    MIPI System Software – Trace (MIPI SyS-TSM), a system-level tracing protocol, is now easier for software developers to integrate in many mobile systems. An implementation of SyS-T has been added to the Linux kernel, making it instantly available for systems based on Linux, including IoT devices running embedded Linux.

    MIPI Previews Debug and Test Specifications at TestConX 2019

    MIPI Alliance was well-represented at TestConX 2019, the premier conference on testing of integrated circuits, which took place in Mesa, Arizona, in early March. TestConX is in its 20th year and evolved from the BiTS (Burn-In & Test Strategies) Workshop to now include system-level testing and validation (hence, the name change).

    I presented along with two of my colleagues from Intel – Rolf Kühnis, Senior Principal Engineer, and Brad Smith, Systems Architect. Our presentations focused on MIPI innovations for mobile device debug and test, including previews of two specifications coming this year that are optimized for low-bandwidth interfaces: MIPI Debug for I3CSM and MIPI SneakPeek ProtocolSM v2.0, which introduces the “TinySPP” style. TestConX gave us the opportunity to share these new technologies with the larger test and validation community.
