VIA Labs introduced the SuperMUTT Pack USB test tool. The VIA tool is part of the Microsoft USB Test Tool kit (MUTT) and is an integral part of the Windows Hardware Certification Kit (WHCK). The SuperMuttPack integrates a VIA Labs VL811+ USB 3.0 Hub Controller. It is designed to work with the MUTT family of devices. The SuperMUTTPack USB test tool kit includes a SuperMUTT Pack Device, a USB 3.0 cable, 12V power supply, and an instruction manual. The WHCK can be downloaded separately from Microsoft.
Mentor Graphics introduced emulation solutions to accelerate the verification of Universal Serial Bus (USB) SuperSpeed (3.0) products. The hardware and software solutions enable engineers to test USB SuperSpeed peripheral devices integrated on System-on-Chip (SoC) designs, and to develop and test their software drivers and firmware prior to silicon being available. The solution is available now for deployment.
Evatronix and LeCroy will host a joint USB 3.0 webinar. The online seminar will explain step by step how the different hardware and software layers affect the data transfer speed while providing actual measures. The webinar will present the important issues engineers will face when designing their systems. The USB 3.0 Performance Validation webcast will take place on March 3rd, 2011 at 14.30 CET. The event will also be repeated on March 16th, 2011 at the same time.
