USB Type-C and Power Delivery Protocol Analyzer
is available in several configurations to suit specific needs and budget
Fairport, NY, USA: Saelig Company, Inc. announces the
availability of the Mercury™ T2C USB 2.0 & Power Delivery Protocol Analyzer that offers
the newest USB Type-C connection. The Mercury T2C is a small and affordable hardware-based
USB protocol analyzer. It is the industry's first ultra-portable, hardware-based, USB and
Power Delivery protocol analyzer. It combines the de-facto standard CATC Trace™ display, comprehensive
USB class decoding, and PD 2.0 protocol analysis. The pocket-sized, bus-powered Mercury T2C
sits in-line between host and device and provides transparent capture of all USB transactions.
Within minutes of installing the Windows PC-compatible software, users will be viewing
USB traffic from the lowest packet layer to the fully decoded class level operations. With
event triggering and real time spool-to-disk capture the T2C has advanced capabilities that
reduce time to market for USB systems and software. It graphically decodes logical protocol
events to show the underlying transactions and packets. Decoding of upper level transactions
allows users to see logical protocol events within the trace, eliminating the manual decoding
of device-specific commands.
The Mercury T2C includes hardware-based event triggering,
256 MB of memory, and spool-to-disk capture for extended recording. It includes cables
to interface directly with USB 2.0 devices and the new Type-C devices. Available with USB
2.0 only, USB PD only, or both USB and PD analysis, the Mercury T2C features non-intrusive
probing to preserve real-world signal and timing conditions.
The compact Mercury T2C supports the USB Type-C and Power Delivery 2.0 standards which
bring entirely new USB cables and connectors to improve overall user experience. USB Type-C
defines a smaller sized, reversible connector that is capable of supporting scalable, bi-directional
power charging at up to 100 W. The Mercury T2C supports capture and decoding of all packets
over the new USB Type-C Configuration Channel (CC). These new CC packets include negotiation
of USB current capabilities and entrance to or exit from Alternate Modes. The Mercury T2C
analyzer's adapters allow the Mercury T2C to operate with older devices and hosts too, creating
an analyzer which is both backward-compatible and future-safe.
The Mercury T2C Type-C and Power Delivery Protocol Analyzer provides the USB development
world with extensive levels of capability for test, validation and compliance of the emerging
USB standards. Available in several configurations designed to fit a customer's specific needs
and budget, the Mercury T2C starts at $995 from Teledyne LeCroy's authorized North American
