Allion Test Labs Selects LeCroy USB 3.0 Test Suite for Complete SuperSpeed USB Compliance Testing

Chestnut Ridge, NY, March 11, 2010 – LeCroy Corporation, a leading supplier of oscilloscopes and serial data test solutions, announced that Allion Test Labs has selected its USB 3.0 Test Suite for complete Super Speed USB Compliance Testing. Allion will use LeCroy’s equipment to provide manufacturers with comprehensive physical and protocol layer transmitter and receiver testing. In addition to SuperSpeed USB, LeCroy will provide Allion with complete solutions for testing SATA and other high-speed serial data standards.

“LeCroy’s USB 3.0 Test Suite is the solution that fully integrates transmitter and receiver testing to meet the compliance requirements for SuperSpeed USB,” said James Ou, Allion’s Director of Personal Application Testing Center. “LeCroy’s end-to-end test equipment lineup addresses the increasingly sophisticated measurement and analysis capabilities that are required by SuperSpeed USB, and we are pleased to be able to offer this preeminent solution to our customers.”

“LeCroy is happy to supply Allion with a complete solution for Super Speed USB compliance testing,” said Conrad Fernandes, LeCroy’s Vice President for Asia Pacific. “As signal speeds increase, compliance testing and debug become more challenging. LeCroy’s innovative solutions for testing high-speed serial data will enable Allion and their customers to perform these tests faster, more comprehensively, and at lower cost.”

The LeCroy USB 3.0 Test Suite includes the SDA 813Zi oscilloscope for physical layer transmitter verification, compliance and debug; the protocol-enabled receiver and transmitter tolerance tester, PeRT3™, for receiver testing; the WaveExpert™ sampling oscilloscope for critical characterization and TDR measurements; and the world’s first USB 3.0 protocol analyzer exerciser platform, the Voyager™ verification system, to address the protocol layer.

LeCroy’s revolutionary PeRT3 is a protocol-aware receiver tester that integrates receiver test with protocol-awareness. It provides the ability to automate testing through active control of the device under test. It is also able to easily manage through protocol issues such as SKP symbols which can interrupt testing on competitive products. Together with LeCroy’s WaveMaster 813Zi oscilloscope, QPHY-USB3-Tx-Rx automation compliance test software, and other accessories, it performs complete physical layer compliance tests faster than alternate solutions that are not protocol-aware. PeRT3 is currently in use at leading labs worldwide, including the Peripherals Integration Lab (PIL).

In addition, the Voyager protocol analyzer exerciser system provides a full-function analyzer, capable of recording and analyzing traffic between both USB 2.0 or 3.0 devices. The integrated exerciser can emulate USB 3.0 device behaviors to allow functional, reliability, and performance testing.
