Explorer EX260, by Ellisys, is an easy-to-use protocol test system for USB traffic monitoring, driver and software stack debugging, protocol compliance verification, and performance analysis. EX260 is a multifunction protocol analyzer and packet generator offering Automated Compliance Testing. The EX260, based on hardware combining 1 GB of memory with a custom-made, high-performance processor, has the processing power needed to test USB3.0′s new 5 Gbps Super-Speed mode. EX260 reduces R&D time by finding issues early and debugging more efficiently, improving quality and reliability by verifying compliance of both USB systems and USB software to defined specifications.
The multifunction USB Explorer 260 can:
- Analyze USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 links at any speed, including OTG and the new InterChip-USB
- Emulate USB hosts and devices
- Inject pre-defined error patterns for stress and error recovery testing
- Automatically verify compliance to the USB and class specifications
EX260 is available in three configurations:
- Explorer 260 Analyzer
Includes extensive analysis features with real-time monitoring, hard-disk data streaming, in-depth class decoding, comprehensive traffic statistics, and powerful triggering and filtering.
- Explorer 260 Generator
Supplements protocol analysis by emulating USB devices and hosts, and by testing corner cases and recovery mechanisms. Reproducible traffic, timing and error scenarios can be created with a powerful scripting environment; includes Automatic Pre-Compliance Testing software; captured traffic can be replayed too. EX260 Generator supports the industry’s first Inline Error Injection feature to insert programmed errors between a host and device to determine the impact of transmission errors.
- Explorer 260 Duo
A flexible bundle of two units that can be used as one analyzer and one generator, two protocol analyzers or two packet generators depending on your testing requirements.
