Description

GRL-USB-PD-C2 (GRL-C2) is the only solution available that supports all compliance test specifications for USB Power Delivery 3.0 and USB Type-C Alternate Mode designs, and enables product developers to quickly run full compliance and validation test suites at the push of a button. GRL-C2 provides an automated, efficient, and fully-integrated way perform all required USB Power Delivery version 3.0 and 2.0 and related tests over the USB Type-C connector, as well as PHY test automation for USB Type-C Alternate Modes. GRL-C2 automates all required USB PD compliance tests for power providers (chargers), consumers, dual-role ports, and cable and adapter E-Markers; and is the only solution available that integrates Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ and Intel Thunderbolt-specific test items. GRL-C2 also incorporates analyzer capability to sniff PD traffic. GRL-C2 integrates all required USB PD tests into a single 2-port tester, including all tests supported on GRL’s USB-IF approved first generation solution introduced in 2015. Each port can be configured independently as a PD Provider or Consumer. GRL-C2 supports BMC-PHY-TX testing using passive probes with any Windows 7+ oscilloscope from Keysight, Tektronix, Rohde & Schwarz, or Teledyne LeCroy. All other PD Protocol and Power tests are fully integrated, removing the need for external electronic loads.
