MIPI Alliance has a family of specifications that can be used to debug components in mobile devices as well as any device that is “smart” or connected, such as an end-point on the Internet of Things. Components that can be debugged with the tools include application processors, modems, device controllers, power management devices, and others.
All of these specifications are available for download and use by the public and the open source community.
MIPI Gigabit Debug for USB (MIPI GbD for USBSM) makes it possible to use the USB Debug Device Class (released in USB 3.1) to run the MIPI SneakPeek Protocol as well as the collection of specifications provided in the MIPI Gigabit Trace Framework Appendix to the MIPI Trace Wrapper Protocol Specification. The use of USB for these procedures minimizes debug’s impact on system functions and enables engineers to use the connection to debug a device while the connection is carrying other traffic.
The specification is developed by the MIPI Debug Working Group. It is available as v1.1. All MIPI debug and trace specifications, including MIPI GbD for USB, are available for download and use by the public and the open source community. Members of the MIPI Alliance enjoy benefits including access to relevant licenses and opportunities to participate in development activities, interoperability workshops and other events.
