LeCroy Corp. has launched the Voyager verification system, reportedly the world’s first protocol analyzer exerciser system for testing USB (Universal Serial Bus) 3.0 devices, systems and software. The Voyager, LeCroy’s sixth-generation verification platform, is aimed at helping developers bring USB 3.0 products to market faster, while ensuring compatibility with an installed base of USB 2.0 products. Based on circuitry developed for LeCroy’s PCI-Express platform, the Voyager protocol analyzer is an all-encompassing test solution for USB development. The technology will target fast sync-and-go transfer applications in the PC, consumer and mobile segments that are necessary as digital media become ubiquitous and file sizes increase. For example, a typical 25-GB high definition digital movie will be able to be downloaded in as little as 70 seconds, versus hours for previous technologies.
