Conquering USB 3.0 Physical Layer Test Challenges
1 Hour | Webcast - recorded | Where & When
Why this webcast is important:
USB 3.0 is now hitting the mainstream market in a big way in 2012. The USB Implementers Forum has certified 100s of products including over 19 USB 3.0 host controllers from 9 different companies. With native Windows 8 support for USB 3.0 and Intel’s integrated chipset shipping this year, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 adoption rates will really take off.
In this webcast we will provide a USB 3.0 industry update as well as cover the latest physical layer compliance testing requirements and challenges for USB 3.0. Also, the USB 3.0 specification now includes several Engineering Change Notices (ECNs). We will review those that impact physical layer testing and describe the test method changes that will be required to meet the new requirements. Lastly we will cover advanced testing topics to help you understand how to determine true transmitter and receiver margins by removing test fixture and cable losses from your measurements.
Who should view this webcast:
USB design engineers, signal integrity engineers, quality engineers, validation engineers, test engineers, architect, project manager, program manager, application manager, application engineer.
