USB standards are becoming faster and more complex, and USB certification testing requirements are increasing accordingly. Allion worked with AMD, a leading semiconductor manufacturer, and Kandou, a Re-timer equipment supplier, to provide electrical testing for the AMD USB4 host platform right from the development stage. Based on our know-how and experience, in electrical testing, we need to pay attention to such things as USB4 ETT parameter settings and control PC settings on AMD USB4 Host platform. Not only does this affect the communication between the microcontroller and the AMD USB4 Host platform, but it is also a major factor in passing the USB4 electrical test.

The public version of the AMD USB4 Host platform has undergone an electrical test of USB4 and passed all test items.
