Selecting scope for multi-lane MIPI M-PHY design

Keywords:electromagnetic interference? conformance test suites? M-PHY? oscilloscope?

In today's mobile design, a lot of components have to be squeezed into a small, tight space. Design considerations such as power supply delivery, heat dissipation, signal crosstalk and coupling become more prominent. In addition, the digital and RF circuits that are fitted together in this confined space will promote electromagnetic interference (EMI). MIPI Alliance promotes the designs to be tested against the conformance test suites (CTS), which is the test requirement for the transmitter and receiver circuits. The intention is to increase the chance of system interoperability, or the guarantee that the designs from different vendors will work well when they are used together. The challenges to accurately validate the designs become increasing more difficulty with these high-speed, multi-lane M-PHY designs. To help improve your electrical validation, there are a few considerations in choosing the oscilloscope to validate your multi-lane M-PHY designs.
