Teledyne LeCroy Announces Comprehensive SuperSpeed USB 10 Gbps (USB 3.1) Protocol Analyzer Exerciser Platform

Voyager M310 Features "T.A.P.3" Probing Technology for Unmatched Recording Accuracy

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- DesignCon; Teledyne LeCroy, the worldwide leader in USB protocol test solutions, today introduced the Voyager M310, a comprehensive protocol analyzer exerciser platform for testing next generation SuperSpeed USB 10 Gbps (USB 3.1) systems.  Fully backward compatible with legacy USB links, the Voyager M310 is designed to provide 100% faithful capture of 10 Gbps bus and protocol traffic for USB 3.1 devices and systems. This multifunction test platform also offers an integrated host and device traffic generation option allowing developers to emulate faulty link conditions, verify protocol compliance and improve product reliability.

The next evolution of the flagship USB validation platform, the Voyager M310 features custom probe technology known as T.A.P.3 (Transparent Acquisition Probing) which has been field proven in Teledyne LeCroy's market-leading PCI Express® (PCIe®) 3.0 and SAS 12G analyzers. Designed to non-intrusively record both 5 and 10 Gbps SuperSpeed USB links, T.A.P.3 technology provides unprecedented accuracy and reliability without compromising link integrity.

"The USB-IF is pleased to see Teledyne LeCroy announce support for the USB 3.1 specification with its protocol analyzer system," said Jeff Ravencraft, USB-IF President & COO. "USB-IF member companies like Teledyne LeCroy that provide expert compliance testing services help enable developers to deliver certified products. Only products that successfully complete the USB-IF certification and testing program can ensure a seamless computing experience."

"Boasting the largest installed base in the world, Teledyne LeCroy's USB test tools are considered the gold standard for developers that require lossless capture of USB protocol traffic", said Michael Romm, Vice-President of Product Development at Teledyne LeCroy's Protocol Solutions Group. "The Voyager M310 continues this tradition by combining our high-speed probing expertise with the easy to use CATC Trace display. For developers in USB 3.1, confidence in the tools and efficient workflow are key to meeting development deadlines."

"In addition to being the first integrated analyzer/exerciser platform to support USB 3.1, the Voyager M310 includes best-in-class analysis features" said Mike Micheletti, Product Marketing Manager, Teledyne LeCroy Protocol Solutions Group. "With the continual drive to shorten time to market, validation teams working on 10 Gbps designs can leverage the same collection of proven analysis tools available in our industry-leading 5 Gbps analyzer."

An integrated traffic generation option is capable of emulating host or device behaviors with low-level control of headers, payloads, link training and timing. The exerciser features Ready-Link™ and Transaction Manager™ emulation which automatically handles link and transaction layer handshaking to simplify the development of test scripts. Like the original Voyager system, a single tap point is used to generate traffic scenarios and also record the real response which minimizes signal integrity issues during testing.  

The Voyager M310 features industry leading 16GB of recording memory. The system also supports cascading multiple analyzers as well as multi-protocol capture, allowing developers to correlate packets as they cross protocol domains like Serial ATA and PCI Express. Featuring both Gigabit Ethernet and SuperSpeed USB upload ports, the Voyager M310 can reduce debug time and provide faster workflow for developers testing USB 3.1 systems and devices. The Voyager M310 begins shipping in Q2 of 2014.

Join us at Cloud Expo June 6-8 to find out how to securely connect your cloud app to any cloud or on-premises data source – without complex firewall changes. More users are demanding access to on-premises data from their cloud applications. It’s no longer a “nice-to-have” but an important differentiator that drives competitive advantages. It’s the new “must have” in the hybrid era. Users want capabilities that give them a unified view of the data to get closer to customers and grow business. The...
Multiple data types are pouring into IoT deployments. Data is coming in small packages as well as enormous files and data streams of many sizes. Widespread use of mobile devices adds to the total.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

The material was delivered interac...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.
