Teledyne LeCroy has developed the first protocol analyzer platform for testing next-generation USB4 and Thunderbolt 3 systems. The convergence of the underlying Thunderbolt and USB protocols in the USB4 specification will increase compatibility among USB Type-C connector-based products, simplifying how people connect their devices. Teledyne LeCroy’s new Voyager M4x Protocol Analyzer will enable companies to develop high-performance products with the USB4 standard, targeted for release in mid-2019.
The Voyager M4x Protocol Analyzer will begin shipment in April 2019. The Voyager M4x Protocol Analyzer platform leverages Teledyne LeCroy’s cutting-edge T.A.P.4 probe technology and industry-leading analysis software, allowing developers to verify interoperability and compliance for the rapidly expanding USB Type-C market. Designed to be fully backward compatible for testing legacy USB links, the Voyager M4x captures 100% of bus and protocol traffic for USB4 devices and systems. The T.A.P.4 probe technology locks on the signal-under-test without impacting critical link training and speed negotiation handshaking.
