Keysight Technologies Inc. has released an updated Method of Implementation (MOI) document for cable and connector assembly compliance tests defined in Rev. 1.1 of the USB Type-C specification and Rev. 1.0 of the USB Type-C Compliance Test Specification (CTS). The USB Type-C MOI, as well as a test package such as Keysight's state file, works with the ENA series network analyser's enhanced time domain analysis option (E5071C-TDR) to provide the compliance test solution for USB Type-C cable and connector assemblies.

This step-by-step guide of measurement procedures for time and frequency domains simplifies USB Type-C cable-connector compliance setup and testing, stated the company. As part of Keysight's Type-C total solution set, the ENA-TDR is ready for complete testing of the standards converging on this universal interface.

Driven by increasing demand for more bandwidth, USB continues to evolve. One such evolution is the move to a smaller Type-C connector, with its 24-pins and a symmetric form factor that enables users to plug it in either way. The smaller connector results in tougher requirements for the physical layer to ensure interoperability. While Keysight offers a MOI for these smaller connectors, it is based on version 1.0 of the USB Type-C specification and CTS draft. The updated MOI, however, is based on the latest versions of both specifications: USB Type-C 1.1 and CTS 1.0.

The E5071C ENA-TDR is an application embedded in the ENA network analyser that provides a one-box solution for high-speed serial interconnect analysis. The software delivers three breakthroughs for signal integrity design and verification: 1) simple and intuitive operation, 2) fast and accurate measurements simultaneously in the time domain (TDR/TDT) and frequency domain (S-parameter), and 3) ESD robustness for reduction of maintenance cost, detailed the company.
