December 28, 2012 -- WuXi,China -- The USB3.0/2.0 Combo PHY IP Core Self-developed by Qualchip Technologies, Inc.(Qualchip) passed the Acceptance of CEC Specialist Group by Teledyne LeCroy's Test Platform's Verification, the performance of which were totally satisfied with USB 3.0 Physical Test Specification and USB IF(USB Implementers Forum) compliance test requirements. Moreover, most parameters were well better than the requirements of the specifications. Currently, Qualchip is porting the Combo PHY to SMIC 40LL process, which will be taped-out in January, 2013.
"The test and verification of our USB 3.0 PHY used Teledyne LeCroy's USB 3.0 total test solution based on SDA825Zi-A+PeRT3+QualiPHY. The solution combined the oscilloscope、Protocol Enabled Receiver and Transmitter Tolerance Tester with the automatic Qualify compliance software, which can complete all the items test the USB 3.0 specification requires such as physical parameters、jitter tolerance", said Mr. Jianyu Gu, the President of Qualchip, "We had already built the Joint Laboratory with Teledyne LeCroy, equipped with complete test instruments such as high bandwidth oscilloscope、BER、Signal Integrity Analyzer、SATA/SAS/USB/PCIE Protocol Analyzer and so on, which can satisfy the measurement and verification requirements of many high speed interfaces include USB 3.0/USB 2.0. The Joint Laboratory will be open to external, we are glad to provide diversified service for our customers and partners!"
The USB 3.0 solution of Teledyne LeCroy used the new generation Zi series high performance oscilloscope, especially used the PeRT3(Protocol Enabled Receiver and Transmitter Tolerance Tester) specially developed for the high speed interfaces such as USB3.0/SATA/SAS/PCIE , which made the two key difficulties getting very easy: One is how to change the various patterns for the physical transmitter test, the other one is how to let the DUT enter Loopback mode required by Receiver Jitter Tolerance Test. Therefore, the USB 3.0 solution of Teledyne LeCroy had been used popularly by USB 3.0 chip companies、system companies, which is the first choice in the industry.
