  • Control your Thunderbolt DUT via Tenlira-based uController.

Description

GRL’s Thunderbolt Return Loss Test Software (GRL-TBT-ENA) provides an automated, simple, and efficient way to test return loss of Thunderbolt hosts and devices per the requirements of the Thunderbolt specification with your Keysight E5071C ENA. GRL-TBT-ENA runs on any Windows 7 or Windows 8-based PC or the E5071C ENA.

GRL-TBT-ENA provides full step-by-step test guidance for DUT connection, calibration and test execution for Thunderbolt Host/Device, PortA and PortB testing. Test parameters and pass/fail limits are automatically set up according to the Thunderbolt compliance test Method of Implementation (MOI). GRL-TBT-ENA generates a comprehensive test report, saving test engineer’s work load and time.
