The Voyager M3i is Teledyne LeCroy’s 6th generation USB protocol verification platform designed for the next evolution of universal serial bus known as SuperSpeed USB. Leveraging Teledyne LeCroy’s extensive expertise in high-speed serial data analysis, the Voyager provides 100% accurate protocol capture of both USB 2.0 and 3.0 at data rates up to 5 Gb/s.
Teledyne LeCroy’s Advisor T3 is an ultra portable SuperSpeed USB analyzer that delivers market leading accuracy at an extraordinary price. Designed to put precision USB protocol test tools in the hands of every engineer, the Advisor includes all the essential features for SuperSpeed USB debug.
SuperSpeed USB is one of most highly anticipated standards in several years. At 10x the data rate of USB 2.0 and with new features like CTLE (continuous time linear equalization) and reference channels, SuperSpeed USB will pose new challenges to implementers.
USB 3.0 bus
The USB 3.0 decode option for Teledyne LeCroy oscilloscopes provides link layer decode information annotated on the USB 3.0 physical layer waveform. This provides the ability to view protocol traffic on the oscilloscope and verify that the link is alive and transmitting properly. It also aids in debugging problems that are not solely analog or digital in nature, such as interoperability issues, uncertain error causes, and physical layer issues not evident with a Protocol Analyzer.
USB 3.0 Test Suites
One of the most highly anticipated new standards in many years, SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.0) is the next advance for the widely adopted Universal Serial Bus (USB) standard. The key performance upgrade of SuperSpeed USB is an increase in the data rate from 480Mb/s to 5 Gb/s--ten times faster than USB 2.0. However, the higher speed and more complex features create more complicated signals that require more sophisticated measurement and analysis. Developers face additional requirements in the new specification that blur the boundaries between physical layer testing and protocol layer testing. Teledyne LeCroy’s leadership in oscilloscope and protocol analyzer technology, serial data expertise, and tradition of innovation, ensures a complete suite of SuperSpeed USB test solutions that address today’s challenges and anticipate increasingly integrated test methodologies.
The ProtoSync option further leverages the supported Teledyne LeCroy decode annotation options (PCIEbus D, USB3bus D, USB2bus D, USB2 HSICbus D, SATAbus D, SASbus D, FCbus D) installed on the oscilloscope.
