Allion Selects LeCroy Equipment for USB Specification Testing

LeCroy USB 3.0 Test Suite

Allion has selected LeCroy Corporation’s USB 3.0 Test Suite to provide its customers with complete SuperSpeed USB compliance testing. With data rates up to 10 times faster than Hi-Speed USB (USB 2.0), SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.0) requires the most advanced technology to ensure specification conformance.

LeCroy’s global expertise in oscilloscopes and serial test solutions will enable Allion to provide comprehensive physical and protocol layer transmitter and receiver testing, giving vendors the assurance that their products perform as outlined by the USB 3.0 specification before hitting store shelves and consumers homes. The LeCroy testing suite also provides Allion with complete testing solutions for SATA and other high-speed serial data standards.

The LeCroy USB 3.0 Test Suite features the latest advancements in test and measurement technology to provide the increasingly sophisticated measurement and analysis capabilities necessary to test compliance for USB 3.0.

  • Oscilloscopes: The oscilloscopes provide fast and thorough transmitter verification, as well as characterization and Time Domain Reflectormetry (TDR) measurements.
  • PeRT3 (Protocol-enabled Receiver and Transmitter Tolerance Tester): Uses a fully automated, protocol-aware system for measuring receiver testing
  • Voyager verification system: The world’s first USB 3.0 protocol analyzer exerciser platform provides 100 percent accurate protocol capture and can emulate both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, allowing for functionality, reliability and performance testing.

“LeCroy’s USB 3.0 Test Suite is the solution that fully integrates transmitter and receiver testing to meet the compliance requirements for SuperSpeed USB,” James Ou, Allion’s Director of Personal Application Testing Center, said in a recent release. “LeCroy’s end-to-end test equipment lineup addresses the increasingly sophisticated measurement and analysis capabilities that are required by SuperSpeed USB, and we are pleased to be able to offer this preeminent solution to our customers.”
