100% USB 3.0 Test Coverage
Compliance requirements per the Electrical Compliance Test Specification
for USB consist of an eye diagram and jitter (Random, Deterministic, and
Total Jitter and SSC Profile) tests. However, the SuperSpeed USB base
specification also includes a set of informative measurements including
tests for Slew, Voltage Levels, and others. The TekExpress Option USB-TX
software is an easy-to-use software package that automates the USB
3.0 Normative and Informative Transmitter Tests. The DPOJET Option
USB3 provides semi-automation of the USB 3.0 Normative and Information
Transmitter Measurements and Setup Library. While other manufacturers
promote standard-specific compliance software, the Tektronix solution
provides a comprehensive verification, characterization, debug, and
compliance environment.
Show Schematic.
Receiver testing is a requirement for SuperSpeed USB certification. The
10x increase of data rate (5 Gb/s) makes it critical that the Receiver properly
interprets the incoming bit stream. The Receiver test is a jitter tolerance
test which stresses the Receiver over defined sinusoidal jitter frequencies
and amplitudes which are defined in the CTS. The table below outlines
the required test frequencies for USB 3.0 Receiver Testing. All other
impairments (RJ, SSC, De-emphasis, ISI) remain constant while the SJ is
swept across the frequencies defined in the standard.

The Tektronix Automated Test Software is a Windows-based application
that runs on any Windows XP*1 computer operating system including many
Tektronix Windows-based instruments. TekExpress software ordered with
Option USB-TX provides an automated, simple, and efficient way to test
USB 3.0 Transmitters consistent with the requirements of the SuperSpeed
Universal Serial Bus Electrical Compliance Test Specification (CTS).
Receiver testing is automated on both the BERTScope (Opt. BSAUSB3)
and AWG platforms (TEKEXP USB-RMT).

Automated solutions BSAUSB3 for the BERTScope and USB-RMT for the
AWG simplify Receiver testing. No longer is it a requirement that the end
user be an expert in USB 3.0. The process of defining test parameters,
putting the device into the proper test mode (loopback), measuring errors,
showing results after each frequency is executed, and printing/storing the
test results is fully automated for the user. Both solutions provide all of the
required signal impairments for SuperSpeed USB including SJ, RJ, SSC,
De-emphasis, and ISI.

USB 3.0 Transmitter Test
SuperSpeed USB Transmitter Testing with USB-TX
SuperSpeed USB transmitters must pass a signal quality test using SigTest.
SigTest is a post-processing electrical test tool available from the USB-IF
( that measures amplitude, jitter, and mask hits. In order to
simplify testing, USB-TX automatically configures the oscilloscope, acquires
the waveforms, and automates SigTest measurements.
A choice is available at run time to process the measurements using SigTest
or if debug and analysis is required with DPOJET. In both cases, DPOJET
must be used to measure SSC (Spread Spectrum Clocking) and LFPS (Low
Frequency Period Signalling) as these measurements are not supported by
SigTest. SSC and LFPS measurements are required for compliance testing.

Automated Transmitter Testing –
Save Time and Resources
There is no longer a need to be an expert on Transmitter testing procedures.
Remembering the exact steps to take is time consuming and often requires
going back to the SuperSpeed USB Test Specification. USB-TX takes the
guesswork out of conducting SuperSpeed USB Transmitter Testing. Even
if you remember how to use the test equipment, it is common for even the
most experienced operators to forget steps in the procedure or to set up
the correct parameters, like applying the correct filters or clock recovery
technique. USB-TX allows engineers to simply select the desired tests to
run and work on other tasks while the tests are being executed.
Compliance testing requires three different test patterns: CP0, CP1,
and LFPS. Controlling the device under test to transmit the required test
patterns is simple with USB-TX. State control is fully automated by using
an AFG3101, AFG3102, AFG3252, AFG3251 or AWG7102, AWG7122B,
or AWG7122C. The option is also available to control the DUT using the
Auxiliary output of the oscilloscope (though this method is not guaranteed
for all DUTs). In the event that the DUT is not able to generate the desired
test pattern, the user has the flexibility to skip all measurements requiring
that pattern without losing any test data that has been previously acquired.
Once all necessary patterns have been acquired all measurements are fully
automated with USB-TX.
Upon completion of the testing a comprehensive report is provided that
outlines the measurements, test limits, and margin. The report also shows
plots representing the eye diagram and SSC profile which are useful to
determine the source of failures or results with minimal margin. In the event
that measurements need to be redone, USB-TX provides an option to use
prerecorded waveforms. This is useful in situations where data sharing is
required and a DUT is not physically available.

USB 3.0 Transmitter Testing with USB3 Essentials
Powered by NI TestStand™
The TekExpress automated compliance software uses NI (National
Instruments) TestStand to manage and execute its test sequences. A
Windows user interface is provided in the TekExpress software for simple
and complete operation of compliance measurements. However, if
your validation and debug needs go beyond the features offered by the
TekExpress software, a full version of NI TestStand can be used to develop
higher-level automation sequences to control the TekExpress software.
NI TestStand is the de facto industry standard test management
environment for automating test and validation systems. NI TestStand
is used to develop, manage, and execute test sequences, as well as to
integrate test modules written in any test programming language through
an open and flexible architecture. Customers who own NI TestStand and
purchase the TekExpress software will be able to write scripts using NI
TestStand that call the TekExpress software with a limited command set.
The limited command set allows the NI TestStand user to recall and save
TekExpress software setups, start execution, query current execution
status, and receive measurement results.
For device validation, it’s often desirable to make multiple runs of a single
device using different operating conditions such as temperature and
power supply voltages. This is sometimes referred to as ‘four-corners
testing’, (testing to low-high temperature and low-high supply voltages).
For four-corners testing, NI TestStand supports drivers for a wide range of
temperature chambers and power supplies. NI TestStand can be used to
control the temperature chamber and then call the TekExpress software
for a compliance test using the limited command set. For adjusting
power supply voltages, the power supply control sequence file within the
TekExpress software can be modified using a standard NI TestStand
sequence file. Thus, if your company already uses NI TestStand for
automation, your test engineers can incorporate commands to run the
TekExpress compliance software directly into their test sequences.
USB 3.0 Essentials DPOJET Measurements and Setup Library
(Opt. USB3) for the DSO/DSA/MSO70000 Series oscilloscopes provides
a semi-automated USB 3.0 Transmitter solution. USB3 provides a precise
verification, characterization, and debug environment built upon the
general-purpose analysis capabilities of DPOJET. USB3 enables the
execution of all USB 3.0 Normative and Informative Transmitter Tests.
A comprehensive analysis environment is provided allowing the user to
quickly compare the results from multiple test configurations. For example,
multiple eye diagrams can be displayed at one time allowing the user
to analyze the effects of different clock recovery techniques or software
channel models. USB 3.0 requires the analysis of the eye diagram with
and without the transition bit. With DPOJET the user can easily compare
the results of both eye diagrams at the same time.
A supported configuration includes a DPO/DSA/MSO70000 Series
Digital Serial Analyzer (or other supported oscilloscope) equipped with
DPOJET (Jitter and Eye Diagram Analysis Tools). The software requires a
DPO/DSA/MSO70000 Series Digital Serial Analyzer (greater than 8 GHz,
12.5 GHz required for compliance testing) with DPOJET (Opt. DJA).
One-button Testing
Once the test bench is set up and the DUT is properly connected, simply
press the Run button to perform the selected test suite.
Online Help and Show MOI
Online Help is available through the Help menu and direct access to the
USB 3.0 Transmitter MOI (Method of Implementation) through the Show
MOI button. The approved MOI documents step-by-step how the test
is being performed by the TekExpress™ software. This allows users to
understand the theory behind the measurements and better understand
test results.

Automated Receiver Testing
USB 3.0 is prevalent in an array of markets ranging from consumer
electronics to computing applications. Often multiple technologies must be
tested to bring these products to market. The Tektronix USB 3.0 Receiver
portfolio of the BERTScope and AWG provides broad support for these
standards. Regardless of the technologies at hand that must be tested with
USB 3.0, Tektronix has a solution. Leading-edge technologies such as PCI
Express 3.0 and SAS 12G that require complex transmitter equalization are
supported with the BERTScope. The unique requirements such as cable
emulation for HDMI and pulse width jitter for MIPI are supported with the
AWG platform. Both solutions provide an automated test environment for
USB 3.0 receiver compliance and margin testing.
BERTScope Automated Receiver Testing
The BERTScope USB 3.0 Automated Receiver test solution is designed
to streamline the often tedious and labor-intensive receiver test workflow.
No longer is expert USB 3.0 domain knowledge required to configure,
calibrate, test, and document the results. Fast and accurate BERT-based
testing provides high test throughput, intuitive and fast margin testing, and
availability of a wide range of debugging tools when further investigation is
required. The result is high test productivity starting from setup through to
the documentation of results.
Test Configuration Wizard
The BERTScope BSAUSB3 Test Configuration Wizard provides
step-by-step guidance for Receiver Test equipment setup and software
setup. Clearly drawn Block diagrams, cabling configurations, and
descriptions simplify the test configuration step.
Automated Loopback Initiation.
Automated Stress Calibration
An important step in preparing for receiver testing is the calibration of the
stress sources to ensure that the stress applied at the test fixture to the
device under test is truly compliant with the test standard. In the past,
these calibrations were often the most tedious and error-prone steps in the
receiver test setup process. With the BSAUSB3 Automation Software,
the calibration of the stress "recipe" is completely automated, including
saving the calibration data. For test configurations that do not change, this
step only needs to be performed once, and the stored calibration data is
immediately available. Test engineers can now spend less time calibrating,
and more time testing.
Loopback Initiation
Before the receiver test can start, the device under test must be put in the
proper test mode, called Loopback, where the device is re-transmitting the
exact same data that was received. Entering Loopback mode is challenging
because of the variety of loopback negotiation sequences across the range
of USB 3.0 devices, and compatibility with test equipment characteristics.
The BERTScope BSAUSB3 automation software, operating with the
Tektronix Instrument Switch (BSASWITCH), provides a robust, hands-off
system for initiating loopback for both Host and Device-style targets. In
addition, recovery from loss of synchronization is handled through the use of
word-alignment patterns, often avoiding the need to retrain loopback and
interrupt the test process.
Data Sheet
Receiver Jitter Tolerance Margin Test.
BERTScope Jitter Decomposition.
Jitter Tolerance Testing
Jitter Tolerance testing is the essence of the USB 3.0 receiver test, and
a single-click operation is part of the BSAUSB3 software solution. With
real-time stress adjustment, quick synchronization, and BER testing
capability, the BERTScope provides the ideal platform for fast jitter
compliance testing. Test results are stored using the built-in database for
later recall and report generation.
Beyond testing compliance, the automation software also provides a
single-click solution for finding the ultimate tolerance limits of the device
under test, termed “search for margin”.
Remote Control Protocol
Test software can be operated remotely through ASCII commands sent
through TCP/IP, giving test engineers further flexibility in designing "beyond
compliance" tests.
Debugging Tools
Receiver Test Report.
When a device fails to meet the test requirements, the operator has the
power of the full range of BERTScope debugging tools. From intuitive and
fast manual stress adjustment to exclusive error analysis capability and jitter
decomposition, the BERTScope can help identify subtle issues that other
instruments might miss.
what was sent from the AWG. Error detection for USB 3.0 requires the use
of an error detector that works with asynchronous reference clocks. For
USB 3.0, the Tx and Rx are on separate reference clocks, which requires
the use of SKP ordered sets to compensate for the frequency delta caused
by the separate reference clocks and SSC. A Transmitter is required to send
SKP ordered sets every 354 symbols, however, the SKP ordered sets may
not be inserted in a packet. The result is that the number of transmitted SKP
ordered sets by the AWG may not match the number of SKP ordered sets
sent by the DUT. In this event, the error detector must be able to ignore SKP
ordered sets while executing the test.
AWG SuperSpeed USB Host Setup for Transmitter and Receiver Testing.
AWG Automated Receiver Testing
Configuring test equipment for receiver testing can often be time consuming
and cumbersome. The AWG is the only receiver test solution for USB 3.0
that provides a common test configuration for transmitter and receiver
testing. Where other configurations rely on switches, physical USB cables,
and reference channels, the AWG7000 and DPO/DSA/MSO70000 Series
provide a simplified test configuration.
Loopback Negotiation
Before the Receiver test can start, the device under test must be put into
the proper test mode, called loopback. In this mode, the DUT is sending
the exact same data pattern on its transmit pair as it received. Loopback
negotiation is one of the most difficult and time-consuming aspects of
performing Receiver testing. The flexibility of the AWG is unparalleled
in the ability to put devices into loopback. The power is in the real-time
sequencing of the AWG that enables the user to create infinite waveform
loops, jumps, and conditional branches.
This process is fully automated with the USB-RMT, following the sequence
described in the SuperSpeed USB Compliance Test Specification. For
devices that require a custom loopback method, a custom sequence file can
be created and used with USB-RMT. However, for certification the intent is
to require that the device is capable of going into loopback following the
sequence described in the CTS.
Error Detection
Once the device is in loopback, an error detection mechanism is required in
order to validate that the data pattern being retransmitted from the DUT is
Real-time Scope Error Detection
Error detection for USB 3.0 is supported in the DPO/DSA/MSO70K family
of real-time oscilloscopes. USB-RMT automates the interfaces of the error
detector, so no configuration is required. For times when debugging is
required the error detector ships with a GPIB command set that enables the
setup and configuration of the error detector.
The process of visually validating that a device is in loopback is simplified
with the real-time scope. For example, in many cases a device may not be
in loopback, but may simply be in the Compliance mode, and this is easily
detected on the real-time scope. One way to determine it is that if the signal
generated from the AWG is turned off, the pattern displayed on the scope
should not be a CP0 pattern.
Error detection with the real-time scope supports symbol errors, which goes
beyond simple character and disparity error detection. While operating in
Symbol Error mode, the error detector is looking at 10-bit chunks of data
that have been transmitted from the AWG and comparing those 10 bits
to what is received by the error detector. At the same time, a count is
maintained which displays how many of those errors were character errors
versus disparity errors.
In some cases, the disparity of the SKP ordered set can be reversed when
the signal is retransmitted. The error detector is smart enough to ignore
SKP ordered sets regardless of the disparity.
The last mode of operation is Bit Error mode. Bit Error mode compares
each bit that is transmitted from the signal generator to the data being
transmitted to the error detector. While in Bit Error mode, the error detector
is flexible enough to still ignore SKP ordered sets in order to properly count
the number of receiver errors.
Data Sheet
Real-time Test Status.
Test Report.
Test Status
Once the test has been properly configured, USB-RMT will automatically set
up and configure the test equipment. As the test points are completed the
USB-RMT will update the results dynamically. The results of the tests are
shown in a tabular format and a graphical display. The graphical display
supports both logarithmic and linear scales. The Test Status screenshot
above shows a compliance test that has passed all of the required
frequencies with the exception of 33 MHz. The pass results are denoted by
a green circle and the failed results are denoted by a red ‘X’.
Test Report
Upon completion of the test, a comprehensive report will be generated in
.MHT format. The results of the test will also be stored in an Excel .XLS file
that can be used for further data analysis. Included in the test report are
the configuration settings for the test equipment, the static parameters for
the test (i.e. RJ, Amplitude, SSC Profile, De-emphasis level), a graphical
display of the test results, and a tabular display of the test results.
Testing Beyond Compliance
Margin Testing
While the CTS requires a Jitter Tolerance Test and specific frequencies and
amplitudes, it is often necessary to understand at what point the receiver
stops interpreting the incoming data correctly, which determines the margin
of the device under test. Margin testing is often a long tedious process.
Jitter Tolerance Test.
USB-RMT automates margin testing across a range of SJ frequencies so
the user is not required to interface with the software while the test is being
The user also has the flexibility to change the SJ amplitude of the
compliance test points. For example, a compliance test can be ran with
20% margin by easily changing the amplitude of jitter at each frequency and
saving that setup. The setup can be recalled at a later point in time and the
test can be run under tighter conditions.
Complex SSC Profiles
One source of system failures or PHY non-compliance is SSC. With
USB-RMT, the user can quickly modify the SSC deviation and/or frequency
modulation in order to determine if the SSC is the cause of bit errors.
Furthermore, the AWG with SerialXpress can be used to generate complex
df/dt profiles in order to fully characterize the Receiver’s pll.
