Keysight Technologies announced their latest USB4 solutions that maximize the performance of USB designs and ensure compliance with the USB standard. USB4, a plug and play interface for inter-digital communication, is based on the Thunderbolt protocol specification, and offers significant advantages in bandwidth, power and data delivery. Devices use Synopsys DesignWare USB IP for connectivity, and Synopsys use Keysight's USB4 test and debug solution to help ensure that the IP adheres to the USB-IF specifications, enabling designers to deliver compliant, interoperable products to the market faster and with significantly less risk.
To enable customers to design debug and test, Keysight offers the following USB4 solutions:
- D9040USBC USB4 Transmitter Test (Tx) Software - USB4 Tx software designed to rapidly test, debug and easily characterize complex USB4 designs.
-N5991U40A USB4 Receiver Compliance Test Software – automation of complex stress signal calibration and receiver test procedures to ensure consistency and repeatability.
-N7019A USB Type-C® Active Link Fixture – access to all Type-C signals in a live link to debug or decode acquired signals.
-D9010USBP USB4 Protocol Trigger and Decode - in conjunction with the Keysight's N7019A USB Type-C Active Link Fixture, offers configurable protocol-level searches and software-based triggering to debug and decode USB4 low-speed and high-speed traffic.
In accordance with the USB standard and to ensure the interoperability of USB4 devices, Keysight offers a portfolio of high-speed digital instrumentation including the company's UXR real-time oscilloscope, which provides accuracy in waveform representation across a wide frequency range; their Vector Network Analyzers, which use a generated signal to analyze a network or device to deliver the accuracy needed to perform both linear and nonlinear device characterization; and highly-integrated Bit Error Ratio Testers (BERTs), which identify errors introduced into the system when data is received, a critical capability in physical layer characterization, validation and compliance testing.
