MIPI RFFE protocol-decoding software supports scope measurements

May 14, 2013  EP&T Magazine

AGILENT TECHNOLOGIES Software for decoding MIPI Radio Frequency Front-End (RFFE) protocol packets on oscilloscopes provides design and validation engineers with a fast, easy way to validate and debug RFFE interfaces. RFFE is a specification that offers a common method for controlling RF front-end devices, namely power amplifiers, switches, power management modules, antenna tuners and sensors. RFFE provides point-to-multipoint connectivity for control of the RF front-end and is able to scale to dozens of slave devices, which are connected to a single master device.
