Hybrid Electrical/Protocol Test Solutions

GRL’s Hybrid Electrical/Protocol Test Solutions include:

GRL builds these Solutions through close partnerships with test equipment companies like Agilent Technologies, Tektronix, Teledyne-LeCroy, Artek, and Introspect Technologies.

Oscilloscope Protocol Decode Solutions

Semiconductor companies depend on Oscilloscope Protocol Decode Solutions as the first available protocol analyzers which can be used for low level validation and debug. GRL’s Oscilloscope Protocol Decode Solutions go beyond the simple decode features historically found on scopes and instead provide sophisticated protocol analysis features typically found only on dedicated protocol analyzers. GRL offers Oscilloscope Protocol Decode Solutions for the following standards:

System Margin Validation (SMV) Solutions

GRL’s System Margin Validation (SMV) Solutions are alternative test methodologies that use System Level testing while using lower cost Design For Test (DFT) features built inside PHY transceivers and lower cost external jitter and ISI injectors to recreate signal impairments rather than using traditional high performance BERT equipment. SMV testing does not replace traditional high precision BERT-based testing, but rather because of the lower cost point of these SMV solutions, more test coverage and higher characterization sample sizes are possible by running many test stations in parallel. GRL offers System Margin Validation Solutions for the following standards:

  • USB (coming soon- contact GRL for more information and schedule)
  • EMMC (coming soon- contact GRL for more information and schedule)
  • MIPI (coming soon- contact GRL for more information and schedule)

Integrated Multi-Layer Test Solutions

GRL’s Integrated Multi-Layer Test Solutions are geared for product developers wanting to inject and monitor for errors at electrical, link, protocol, and application levels in different environmental conditions. These Solutions allow developers to understand what combination of stress conditions results in failures, and how failures in one layer effects other layers. GRL also works with customers to understand their test needs and create a custom integrated test solution to meet those needs. GRL offers Integrated Multi-Layer Test Solutions for the following standards:

  • USB (coming soon- contact GRL for more information and schedule)
  • UHS-II (coming soon- contact GRL for more information and schedule)

Manufacturing Test Solutions

GRL’s Manufacturing Test Solutions are optimized for high throughput and ease of use while covering select key application, protocol, and PHY test items. GRL will also customize and integrate test solutions with other automation and data reporting systems. GRL offers Manufacturing Test Solutions for the following standards:

  • UHS-II (coming soon- contact GRL for more information and schedule)
