  • Manufacturing test
  • USB Power Delivery (PD) compliance test

Complete automation for USB testing

TekExpress USB 3.1 software (USBSSP-TX) provides an automated, simple, and efficient way to test USB 3.1 transmitters consistent with the requirements of the SuperSpeed USB Electrical Compliance Test Specification (CTS). SuperSpeed USB 3.1 receiver testing is automated on the BERTScope platform.

Compliance requirements per the Electrical Compliance Test Specification for USB consist of an eye diagram and jitter (Random, Deterministic, and Total Jitter and SSC Profile) tests. However, the SuperSpeed USB base specification also includes a set of informative measurements including tests for Slew, Voltage Levels, and others. The TekExpress USBSSP-TX software is an easy-to-use software package that automates the USB 3.1 (5 Gb/s and 10 Gb/s) Normative and Informative transmitter tests.
