Update: Cadence Completes Acquisition of Evatronix IP Business (Jun 13, 2013)
Test Suite Developer Team and IP Solution Provider team up to Achieve Highest Level of SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Interoperability.
Bielsko-Biala/Poland & Chestnut Ridge/NY, USA, November 29, 2010 - Evatronix SA and LeCroy Corporation have announced today the signing of a partnership agreement that aims towards a faster market adoption of the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 technology by cooperation on mutual product development and USB market investigation. Both companies have established strong leadership positions in the USB market through comprehensive portfolios and years of design experience. The partnership will now leverage this expertise and bring new added value to SuperSpeed USB 3.0 application developers.
"LeCroy is enthusiastic to cooperate with Evatronix with our complete solution for Super Speed USB compliance testing including the physical as well as the protocol layers," said Roberto Petrillo, LeCroy's Vice President for EMEA and Americas. "As signal speeds increase, compliance testing and debug become more challenging. LeCroy's innovative solutions for testing high-speed serial data will enable Evatronix and their customers to perform these tests faster, more comprehensively, and at lower cost."
“In the area of USB 3.0 it is the same like with all top-notch technologies, in particular if they reflect industry standards: there is no company that can do it all by itself. We build on alliances to assure the seamless product interoperability among different development environments,” said Carsten Elgert, VP Sales and Marketing at Evatronix. “We have already proven the quality of our USB-IF certified USB 3.0 controller IP with first pass success in LeCroy protocol analyzers. Now we look forward to tighten these bonds in other areas, especially very high end analog signal analysis.”

LECROY USB PRODUCTS
The LeCroy USB 3.0 Test Suite includes the SDA 813Zi-A oscilloscope for physical layer transmitter verification, compliance and debug; the protocol-enabled receiver and transmitter tolerance tester, PeRT3™, for receiver testing; the SPARQ Signal Integrity Network Analyzer for S-parameter critical characterization and TDR measurements; and the world’s first USB 3.0 protocol analyzer exerciser platform, the Voyager™ verification system, to address the protocol layer.
LeCroy's revolutionary PeRT3 is a protocol-aware receiver tester that integrates receiver test with protocol-awareness. It provides the ability to automate testing through active control of the device under test. It is also able to easily manage through protocol issues such as SKP symbols which can interrupt testing on competitive products. Together with LeCroy’s WaveMaster 813Zi-A oscilloscope, QPHY-USB3-Tx-Rx automation compliance test software, and other accessories, it performs complete physical layer compliance tests faster than alternate solutions that are not protocol-aware. PeRT3 is currently in use at leading labs worldwide, including the Peripherals Integration Lab (PIL).
In addition, the Voyager protocol analyzer exerciser system provides a full-function analyzer, capable of recording and analyzing traffic between both USB 2.0 or 3.0 devices. The integrated exerciser can emulate USB 3.0 device behaviors to allow functional, reliability, and performance testing.
Evatronix SA, founded in 1991, develops electronic virtual components (IP cores) along with complementary software and supporting development environments. The company also provides electronic design services. Evatronix is a renowned provider of 8051 microcontrollers, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 controllers and memory controllers including ONFi 2.2 compatible NAND Flash and SD 3.0/SDIO 2.0 and eMMC 4.4 compatible SDIO Host controllers.
