Serial Presence Detect (SPD) devices, hubs, Registered Clock Drivers (RCD), Power Management ICs (PMIC), and Thermal Sensor (TS) devices can now be fully exercised and debugged using the SV4E-I3C
Introspect Technology SV4E-I3C For DIMM testing, the SV4E-I3C offers a highly intuitive SidebandBus Controller programming interface that can automatically initialize a bus, enumerate devices on the bus, and automatically discover capabilities of connected devices on the bus.

Introspect Technology, leading manufacturer of test and measurement tools for high-speed digital applications, announced today the addition of advanced features for debugging and testing devices based on the JESD403-1 JEDEC Module Sideband Bus Standard ("SidebandBus"). SidebandBus is a standard that defines the protocols for system management on DDR5 memory modules and beyond. SidebandBus was developed in coordination with the MIPI® Alliance, of which Introspect Technology is a Contributor Member, and it provides a superset of the MIPI I3C Basic(SM) bus standard. Most notably, SidebandBus introduces a hub functionality that increases the number of supported devices on the bus without sacrificing the full throughput of the bus.

The Introspect SV4E-I3C Test and Debug Module has been on the market for several years already, and it represents a mature test and measurement implementation for MIPI I3C(SM) specifications including I3C v1.0, I3C v.1.1, and I3C Basic v1.0. And now with the latest software release, it adds complete support for JESD403-1…
