How to test I3C devices for interoperability or conformance testing?

The I3C protocol is gaining momentum and becoming a mainstream technology in the automotive industry, data centers and many other applications. The number of semiconductors with I3C interfaces on the market has tripled in the last three years, and growth is expected to double in the next ten years. As semiconductor chips with I3C interfaces increase, devices such as sensors and EEPROMs must also support or switch to the I3C protocol. The MIPI consortium, which defined the I3C specification, recently developed a standard for testing the interoperability of I3C devices. Moving to the I3C interface will enable devices to perform better and provide better control and configuration.



Advantages of migration to the I3C interface

  • Multi-master support and multi-drop capability
  • Dynamic addressing
  • In-band interrupts
  • Hot join support for new devices

Migrating to the I3C interface is a good option, but it also has some obstacles. The I3C devices need to work with each other because during the migration, some devices will support the I3C interface while others will continue to use the old I2C interface.

The MIPI Forum, which defined the I3C specification, has recently developed a standard for testing the interoperability of I3C devices.







The test suite includes the following details.

  • There are a total of 55 tests defined in various MIPI consortia. The MIPI consortium that defined the I3C specification has recently developed a standard for interoperability testing of I3C devices.
  • Targeted dynamic address assignment tests to test dynamic address-related commands. These tests are intended to verify that the target device recognizes and correctly implements the commands. These tests are crucial for the operation of a target on an I3C bus.





PGY-I3C Exerciser & Analyzer

The PGY-I3C-EX-PD combines host adapter and protocol analyzer in one device. Thanks to the backward compatibility it is suitable for I3C and I2C applications.







I3C CTS Interoperability Testing with the PGY-I3C Exerciser & Analyzer

The PGY-I3C Exerciser & Analyzer test suite is a simple test suite that runs together with I3C PGY Device. Once the tests are run, device manufacturers can easily identify compliance issues related to the I3C protocol. The test suite supports engineers and saves a significant amount of development time and gives confidence in the I3C device.
