USB Certification & Compliance

What is USB Certification & Testing?

USB is the pervasive computer connection standard in world, connecting literally millions of computers to hundreds of millions of peripherals. Since its inception in the mid-nineties, USB has gone on to be the connection standard used on virtually every computer released. NTS performs USB debug testing on a wider variety of USB products. We can perform testing of USB 2.0 and 3.0 device and systems/hubs, including SuperSpeed, high-speed, full-speed, and low-speed products. USB hubs, add-in host controller cards, and systems for USB can all be tested by NTS. With the vast number of companies developing computers and peripherals, it is important to make sure that your product meets the industry standards.

NTS has years of experience testing a wide variety of USB peripherals to all of the various USB specifications: USB Compliance (SuperSpeed, High-speed, full-speed and low-speed silicon, peripheral, and system/hub/host controller); USB On-The-Go Compliance Testing (High-speed and full-speed products); and USB Embedded Host Compliance Testing (High-speed and full-speed hosts).

Based on our experience with USB testing, we’ve also developed a USB “Golden Suite”to help you evaluate how your USB device functions in the real-world (e.g., with other USB devices and USB chipsets from various manufacturers). Just because your product is USB certified doesn’t necessarily mean it is without issues. We can help you identify those issues before you release your product.

In addition, NTS offers the ability for you to attend your USB testing at our facilities. This allows you to address any problems that may occur, allowing your company to quickly and easily make any necessary adjustments. NTS can also assist with USB driver development and debugging (including electrical such as eye diagram, droop/drop, etc.) to address problematic issues.

After you’ve successfully completed USB testing, you’ll be all ready to get your product certified for Microsoft Windows. We can help you perform WHQL/HCK testing of your product so that you can submit it for the “Compatible with Microsoft Windows” logo.
