Ensuring USB Version 2.0 transmitter compliance using an oscilloscope

Validating USB devices requires compliance testing for USB-IF certification to ensure seamless interoperability using an oscilloscope. Follow the USB Gen 4 compliance test specification to ensure that you transmit your signals correctly. USB4 Version 2.0 transmitters need to send a 25.6 Gbd / 40 Gb/s PAM3 signal across four differential lanes. Additionally, they must support alternate mode signals and previous generations of the USB standard over Type-C connectors.

USB4 Version 2.0 compliance testing requires an oscilloscope with at least 25 GHz of bandwidth and two channels to analyze signals transmitted by the device under test. New vertical noise margin and retimer measurements, increased equalization presets, and the challenge of analyzing multilevel signals complicate testing. Compliance test software automates the process and reports results, including analysis to show the pass or fail margins for each test.
