Tektronix has collaborated with NEC Electronics America on the first public showing of NEC's Superspeed USB (USB 3.0) device prototypes at the 2009 Consumer Electronics Show.
NEC Electronics has worked with Tektronix to prove that its silicon components meet the requirements of the emerging Superspeed USB standard.
The working USB 3.0 demonstration featured NEC's USB 3.0 PHY test chip and was a receiver and transmitter demonstration based on the USB 3.0 Rev 1.0 specification.
With data rates reaching 5Gb/s, Superspeed USB performance enters the realm of other cutting-edge protocols such as PCI Express 2.0 and SATA Gen 3.
The Tektronix Superspeed USB solution meets all the transmitter and receiver test requirements outlined in the Superspeed USB specification.
