USB 3.1 is one of the most pervasive high-speed serial buses in the industry. The new Type-C connector is seeing a high degree of adoption as it makes its way within the industry. The new Type-C connector translates to unmet needs for characterization, compliance test and validation of new designs. If you are a Design Engineer or Test and Validation Engineer who needs accurate high speed serial electrical characterization and validation of PHYs, do not miss this webinar!
Getting devices into loopback for USB receiver test successfully has been a huge industry challenge. We will have an in-depth discussion on tools such as protocol awareness for LTSSM and others provided by Tektronix and how they will help you simplify your validation tasks. As design margins shrink, getting deeper insight into margins and characterization of your device is crucial. Comprehensive tools for characterization and debugging failures are key to building confidence. Join us for this webinar and learn how to simplify your complex design challenges with confidence.
