Fixture kits allow testing for USB 3.0 compliance

Agilent Technologies Inc. has provided information on fixture kits for USB 3.0 connectors and cable-assembly compliance tests. Developed by Japanese manufacturer Hosiden, the USB fixture kits are sold by Hosiden distributor BitifEye Digital Test Solutions.

The fixture kits enable design engineers to connect test equipment to USB 3.0 connectors and cable assemblies used in portable CE devices so they can test for potential compliance issues.

The fixture kits are used in conjunction with the Agilent E5071C ENA network analyzer option TDR, a one-box solution covering all the measurements required for USB 3.0 compliance as defined by the latest cable and connector test specification from the USB Implementers Forum. The forum has certified the fixture kits for USB 3.0 connectors and cable-assembly compliance tests.

Engineers can debug data SI issues using ENA Option TDR and USB fixture kits. Agilent also offers a method of implementation and dedicated state files for USB 3.0 connectors and cable-assembly compliance tests. The method of implementation guides users through the compliance tests and introduces the most efficient test procedure. The state file allows designers to skip the tedious setup operation for the compliance tests.

The BitifEye standard cable test fixture kit (product number BIT-USB-CBL-0001) contains standard A and B receptacles, a micro-B receptacle, and necessary calibration boards and terminations.
