USB 3.2 Transmitter Solutions

USBSSP-TX and USB-TX Datasheet

Read Online:

The Tektronix USBSSP-TX and USB-TX Automated Transmitter solutions provide an easy way to validate and characterize emerging USB 3.2 Type-C host controllers, hubs and devices with Tektronix MSO/DPO/70000DX/SX series oscilloscopes.

Key Offerings

  • Transmitter testing
    • Provides a comprehensive automated and manual toolset for USB 3.2 Gen1 (5 Gbps) and Gen2 (10 Gbps) verification, characterization, debug, and compliance test.
    • Supports Type-C, Standard and Micro connectors for USB 3.2 Specification.
    • Provides automatic processing of USB-IF SIGTEST results without manual intervention.
    • Auto selection of sources (channels) based on the probe type selected.
    • Includes support for captive devices and their associated channels as per CTS.
    • Uses pre-recorded mode to run measurements for offline analysis and collaboration with the globally dispersed teams.
    • DPOJET plugin for USB 3.2 Type-C, Standard and Micro connectors which supports USB 3.2 specification and CTS (Gen1 & Gen2) with setup files and MOI.
    • Automatic DUT control and pattern validation to capture all required data patterns (CP0, CP1, CP9, CP10, etc.).
    • Support embedding all Channels and their respective filter files for Type-C, Standard and Micro Connectors using SDLA .
    • Quickly validate test status with comprehensive reporting that details test margins, pass/fail results, and plots in PDF, MHT and CSV formats.
    • Manual Lane Switching – Support for reversible Type-C connector.

Applications

USB transmitter testing

  • Host and Device silicon validation
  • System, peripheral, and hub validation and integration
  • Manufacturing test

Complete automation for USB testing

The automated solution for USB 3.2 simplifies transmitter testing. No longer is it a requirement that the end user be an expert in USB. The process of defining test parameters, power on/off DUT, capturing the LFPS signal, toggling the compliance patterns, making sure the compliance pattern captured is correct, showing results after each measurement is executed, and saving the test results, is fully automated in the Tektronix USB 3.2 automated test solution.
