Update: Cadence Completes Acquisition of Evatronix IP Business (Jun 13, 2013)
Join LeCroy and Evatronix for a real-life engineering guide on the USB 3.0 standard and its hardware and software limitations.
February 24th 2011- Evatronix SA, the leading provider of the USB-IF certified solutions for SuperSpeed USB 3.0 IP, and LeCroy Corporation, a worldwide leader in serial data test solutions have announced today the joint webinar on the key USB 3.0 feature – the actual performance of the highly popular standard. Since the main driver for development of the SuperSpeed USB interface was the significant increase of the theoretical data transfer speed – from 480 Mbps to 5 Gbps, both companies will leverage on their expertise and explain step by step how the different hardware and software layers affect the data transfer speed while providing actual measures.
The webinar will be focused on hardware and software overhead of the USB 3.0 interface and methods for proper data transfer speed validation. The practical example of a USB Mass Storage UAS application will be used to explain the impact of each of the USB layers on the performance of the interface, while the applied validation methodology will provide proper system evaluation.
“Now that we see more and more USB 3.0 applications in development, it is essential to provide designers with knowledge of what they can expect of this standard,” said Dariusz Kaczmarczyk, USB Product Line Manager at Evatronix. “Our webinar will not only list the important issues users will face when designing their systems, but also provide highly credible data confirmed by close cooperation between Evatronix and LeCroy.”
“We are pleased to collaborate with Evatronix to help educate the USB 3.0 market and accelerate the deployment of commercial products," said Roy Chestnut, Product Line Manager at LeCroy’s Protocol Solutions Group. "Working directly with Evatronix has allowed LeCroy engineers to collect valuable insight into the verification challenges faced by developers working on USB Attached SCSI (UAS) devices and software.”
The webinar will take place on March 3rd, 2011 at 14.30 CET, and be repeated on March 16th, 2011 at the same time. Please register at bit.ly/gdM6rD for the early March date and use bit.ly/eLF1u3 for the mid-month term.
