Welcome to the USB4 Testing Masterclass

Sit down 1:1 with USB expert Jit Lim as he lays out the ins and outs of USB4 compliance and testing.

Why USB Compliance Testing?

The recent specification release of USB4 adds significant complexity by doubling the bit rate of USB 3.2. As faster signals get sent through more Type-C wires with USB 3.2 and USB4, new measurement techniques are required to test retimers, active cables, and comprehend crosstalk.

Meeting USB-IF's standards is a must for all USB4 products.
