Teledyne LeCroy recently announced the availability of USB 3.2 analysis in the Voyager M4x analyzer. The Voyager M4x began shipping earlier this year as the test solution supporting USB4 and Thunderbolt 3 protocol analysis. This solution now supports USB 3.2 to allow testing of systems that utilize dual 10Gb/s links or 20Gb/s aggregate bandwidth over USB Type-C cables.
“The rapid adoption of the USB Type-C interface is driving interest in the higher data rate capabilities that are possible using the USB 3.2 specification. Combining today’s USB Type-C cable infrastructure with the promise of higher bandwidth utilizing USB 3.2 is leading to the development of next-generation USB chipsets”, said Jeff Ravencraft, President, and COO of the USB Implementers Forum. “An important part of the USB ecosystem is the availability of test equipment like Teledyne LeCroy’s Voyager M4x analyzer that can help developers verify USB 3.2 interoperability.”
Joe Mendolia, Vice-President of Marketing at Teledyne LeCroy’s Protocol Solutions Group, added, “The Voyager M4x continues this tradition by offering broad support for every generation of USB protocol from USB 2.0 all the way through USB4.”
Teledyne’s Voyager M4x features custom probe technology known as T.A.P.4 (Transparent Acquisition Probing) which has been field-proven in the company’s market-leading PCI Express (PCIe) 4.0 and SAS 24G analyzers. It automatically detects the logical connection rate and lane width with seamless support for USB 3.2 and USB4. Fully backward compatible for testing legacy USB links, the Voyager M4x captures 100% of USB bus and protocol traffic including Power Delivery and Side-Band messages.
The company terms the solutions as the first analyzer platform to support USB 3.2 dual-lane links, the Voyager M4x can also be field-upgraded to support USB4 protocol.
