Pittsford, NY, United States, 2007/11/07 - Explorer EX260 is a new, sophisticated yet easy-to-use protocol test system for USB traffic monitoring, driver and software stack debugging, automatic protocol compliance verification and performance analysis.
EX260 is a multifunction protocol analyzer and packet generator offering Automated Compliance Testing - an industry first. USB3.0 is still an evolving specification, but EX260, based on new industry-leading hardware combining 1 GB of memory with a custom-made, high-performance processor, has the processing power needed to test USB3.0's new 5 Gbps Super-Speed mode. EX260 reduces R&D time by finding issues early and debugging more efficiently, improving quality and reliability by verifying compliance of both USB systems and USB software to defined specifications.
Multifunction EX260 can perform a host of tasks, including: analyze USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 links at any speed, including OTG and the new InterChip-USB; emulate USB hosts and devices; inject pre-defined error patterns for stress and error recovery testing; act either as a protocol analyzer or a packet generator; automatically verify compliance to USB and class specifications.
EX260 is available in three configurations:
1) Explorer 260 Analyzer - includes extensive analysis features with real-time monitoring, hard-disk data streaming, in-depth class decoding, comprehensive traffic statistics, and powerful triggering and filtering.
2) Explorer 260 Generator - supplements protocol analysis by emulating USB devices and hosts, and by testing corner cases and recovery mechanisms. Reproducible traffic, timing and error scenarios can be created with a powerful scripting environment; includes Automatic Pre-Compliance Testing software; captured traffic can be replayed too. EX260 Generator supports the industry's first Inline Error Injection feature to insert programmed errors between a host and device to determine the impact of transmission errors.
3) Explorer 260 Duo - a flexible bundle of two units that can be used as one analyzer and one generator, two protocol analyzers or two packet generators depending on your testing requirements.
Swiss-made by Ellisys, the leading supplier of test solutions for USB, Certified Wireless USB and WiMedia, Explorer EX260 is available now, priced from $6,999 to $14,999 from Ellisys’ USA agent: Saelig Co. NY
