BER contour for USB 3.2 Gen 2 at 10Gbps extrapolated at 1E-12

Key features
  • 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
  • Receiver testing
    • Fully automated receiver calibration, JTOL and margin testing
    • The BSX BERTScope series provides complete visualization of LTSSM (Protocol Awareness) and control the link training. If the DUT fails to handshake properly, the application provides error messages to debug further.
    • Sophisticated error analysis tools such as Pattern Sequencing and Error location analysis, built into the BSX Series help to understand underlying causes of bit errors
    • Receiver sensitivity to test beyond compliance and debug the DUT. This measurement tests how tolerant is the DUT, with the changes of amplitude keeping all the stresses enabled.
    • Comprehensive reporting that details test margins, pass/fail results, and plots in PDF, HTML, and CSV formats
    • Flexible signal impairments covering ISI, SSC and SJ, enables emulating any length channel/cable combination, any SSC profile at any frequency, and multiple tones simultaneously
    • USB Receiver Test software can be operated remotely through ASCII commands sent through TCP/IP, giving test engineers further flexibility in designing beyond compliance tests.
Applications

USB transmitter and receiver 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 on the BERTScope simplifies receiver testing. No longer is it a requirement that the end user be an expert in USB. The process of defining test parameters, putting the device into the proper test mode (loopback), measuring errors, showing results after each frequency is executed, and printing/storing the test results is fully automated for the user. The BERTScope solution provides all of the required signal impairments for USB 3.2, including SJ, RJ, SSC, and De-emphasis.

Test configuration wizard

The BERTScope USB 3.2 Receiver Software Test Configuration Wizard provides step-by-step guidance for receiver test equipment setup and software setup. Clearly drawn Block diagrams, cabling configurations, and descriptions simplify the test configuration step.

Loopback initiation

The BERTScope USB 3.2 Receiver Automation Software provides a robust and hands-off system for initiating loopback of both host and device. Power on the DUT; it goes through different states of the Link Training and Status State Machine (LTSSM) training. Direct Low Frequency Periodic Signal (LFPS) generation by the BSX BERTScope’s TxEQ module with inbound LFPS detection by the BERTScope receive logic, allows successful LFPS handshaking between the DUT and BERTScope. Tektronix USB Rx application uses color notation to display the state of the DUT. If there is any failure, the application will show error messages pup-up.

Jitter tolerance testing

Jitter Tolerance (JTOL) is used when you perform receiver testing. Testing may be either in Compliance mode or Margin mode. Compliance-mode testing performs single test at each sinusoidal jitter (SJ) frequency specified in the jitter tolerance template. Margin mode testing sweeps a range of amplitudes for each SJ frequency.
