The Tektronix TekExpress (TEKEXP) Automated Test Software is a Windows-based application that runs on any Windows XP*1 computer operating system including Tektronix Windows-based instruments. TekExpress software ordered with Option USB-TX and USB-RMT provides an automated, simple, and efficient way to test USB 3.0 Transmitter and Receiver hosts and devices consistent with the requirements of the SuperSpeed Universal Serial Bus Electrical Compliance Test Specification (CTS).
Compliance requirements per the Electrical Compliance Test Specification for USB consist of an eye diagram and jitter (Random, Deterministic, and Total Jitter and SSC Profile) tests. However, the USB 3.0 base specification also includes a set of informative measurements including tests for Slew, Voltage Levels, and others. The TekExpress Option USB-TX software is an easy-to-use software package that automates the USB 3.0 Normative and Informative Transmitter Tests. The DPOJET Option USB3 provides semi-automation of the USB 3.0 Normative and Information Transmitter Measurements and Setup Library. While other manufacturers promote standard-specific compliance software, the Tektronix solution provides a comprehensive verification, characterization, debug, and compliance environment. The Tektronix USB 3.0 test bench includes a real-time oscilloscope (DPO/DSA/MSO70000 Series), an arbitrary waveform generator (AWG7000 Series), a USB 3.0 test fixture set, and USB 3.0 test software (USB-TX or USB3 for Transmitter test and USB-RMT for Receiver test).
