Overview & Features

All-in-One Intelligent USB Power Performance ATE for High Volume Production Testing

Overview

  • Used by factories to support 100% in-line testing in high volume

 

Description

The GRL-USB-PD–M1 can be used to test a wide range of products with USB Type-C and Type-A ports, including mobile phones, PC’s, docks, monitors, USB based power banks, wall and car chargers, and car infotainment systems supporting different charging technologies including USB PD 2.0, USB PD 3.0 with PPS, Qualcomm QC 2.0, QC 3.0, QC4, QC4+.

The GRL-USB-PD–M1 tester integrates all the required tests for USB Type-C PD into a single 8-Port ATE.  Each port can be configured independently as a PD Provider or Consumer for PD system testing for up to 120 watts.  The GRL-USB-PD–M1 enables factory operators to quickly run full functional and power testing without even pushing a button.

Factories can run built-in functional tests that check for protocol negotiation, power loading, voltage impact of no-load/full-load situations, voltage overshoot/undershoot, ripple, over-current, short circuit, and Level VI power efficiency testing.  Simple green and red indicators show pass/fail results to operators while full test logs are automatically saved for later review by factory test engineers.
