USB 3.1 Gen 2 Compliance Testing and Debug - Live Webinar

When: Wed, September 27, 2017

Time: 11:00 AM PDT | 2:00 PM EDT



USB has been a very popular standard for data transfer on multiple platforms for many years. The latest edition of the standard called USB 3.1 Gen 2 or SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps has gained popularity in the industry. The introduction of the smaller form factor Type-C connector and it’s applications in power delivery and display signals has led to wider implementation of this standard, particularly in cell phones and other mobile devices. The higher data rate associated with the standard offers tougher challenges during development and testing. 

Join Teledyne LeCroy for this free webinar as we analyze the major changes in the standard compared to its previous versions and offer solutions for compliance testing and debug to help in analysis and characterization of USB 3.1 Gen 2 signals and interfaces. The physical layer transmitter and receiver compliance tests, including the necessary test instrumentation such as oscilloscopes and the PERT Receiver tester will be discussed in detail. In addition, a few debug and analysis techniques will be presented.

Practical Current Measurement with a Precision Power Analyzer

When: Wed, September 27, 2017

Time: 11:00 AM PDT | 2:00 PM EDT


As inverters, motors, and other power conversion systems become increasingly efficient, power measurement and analysis is more important than ever. In order to create these accurate power measurements, one must choose among a variety of current measurement approaches. While many applications can use the built-in current measurement capability of a power analyzer, others will require an external current transducer for the job.


In this live webcast, attendees will learn:

  • Fundamentals of current measurement
  • Criteria for selecting the correct current transducer
  • Alternatives for current measurement
  • How to connect a CT to a power analyzer


Presented by Sam Shearman, Product Manager
