Accelerating USB 3.0 Product Development

1   Hour | Webcast - recorded | Where & When

Overview:

Super speed USB presents new set of challenges for designers and developers. Not only do you need the right tools, you also need tools that are easy to use, and do not stretch your company’s budget. Whether you are designing host, hub or device, electrical or protocol, Agilent Technologies offers a complete solution for both compliance and development.

USB 2.0 provides the 480 Mb/s data rate to accommodate data transfers between peripherals and computers. USB 2.0 devices are backwards compatible with USB 1.1 devices. USB 3.0 is a dual-bus architecture that incorporates USB 2.0 and a SuperSpeed bus (nominal data rate is 5 Gb/s). Wireless USB is the wireless extension to USB that combines the speed and security of wired technology with the ease-of-use of wireless technology. Wireless USB supports robust high-speed wireless connectivity by utilizing the common WiMedia MB-OFDM Ultra-wideband (UWB) radio platform as developed by the WiMedia Alliance.
Specifications and compliance tests are defined by the USB Implementers Forum. The resources you find here will provide you with an overview of USB design, understand the latest measurement techniques, and illustrate design and debug approaches.

Agilent’s compliance solution for compliance test is recognized by the USB-IF (Implementation Forum) Tests for USB2.0 and USB3.0 Compliance Testing. It is easy to use; and is the most economical solution available today.
