Ellisys has announced EllisysUSB Device Examiner, an add-on software package for its USB Explorer line of protocol tools.
The EllisysUSB Device Examiner software verifies that a USB device under test complies with Chapter 9 of the USB 2.0 specification, and where applicable, the Hub, HID, and Mass Storage standard classes.
Used with an Ellisys USB Explorer 260 Generator, Device Examiner automatically discovers the USB device under test connected to the generator and displays information about it.
EllisysUSB Device Examiner’s class is detected and tests pertinent to that class are automatically loaded. Device Examiner software then executes a suite of tests, monitors the resulting interactions, and generates a report detailing the pass/fail results of each individual test.
Optionally, EllisysUSB Device Examiner can also control an Ellisys 260 protocol analyzer unit to record a trace of every executed test, in case debugging may be required. If there are errors, the detected issues can be easily debugged using the analyzer’s extensive capabilities to examine the traces captured during testing. EllisysUSB Device Examiner’s convenient Run Failures feature accelerates the process of re-testing after fixing bugs, by re-running only failed tests.
The Mass Storage class checker also performs read and write performance tests at the maximum possible USB throughput. This is achieved with the highly optimised hardware implementation of the USB Explorer 260 packet generator.
EllisysUSB Device Examiner is available from Embedded Logic Solutions .
