Keysight’s R&D Efforts in High-Speed Digital Technology Helps Accelerate Industry Adoption of USB4™ Standard

Commitment to accuracy, high signal fidelity and performance supports global adoption of USB digital connectivity standard

Bangalore, December 17, 2019 – Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that the company’s early research and development in high-speed digital technology will enable the 5G and IoT device ecosystems to accelerate adoption of the recently released USB4™ specification.

Keysight is committed to developing solutions that deliver accuracy, high signal fidelity and performance. As a result, the company was active in the timely publication of the next-generation USB4 specification by the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF). A wide range of products, including smartphones, laptops, desktop computers, tablets, and digital cameras, will rely on this next-generation high-speed digital standard. USB4, a plug and play interface for inter-digital communication, is based on the Thunderbolt™ protocol specification and offers significant advantages in bandwidth, power and data delivery.

“USB-IF establishes close industry collaborations with its member companies, such as Keysight, that support the delivery of high-performance USB solutions, while ensuring their reliability, ease-of-use and quality,” said Jeff Ravencraft, president and COO of USB-IF. “Keysight’s support will help facilitate the adoption of the USB4 standard and accelerate the market introduction of certified USB4 products.”

Close industry collaboration and development of solutions for design characterization and validation for Thunderbolt™ have enabled Keysight to better serve an ecosystem built around reversible and backward compatible USB Type-C® connectors. This ecosystem, consisting of silicon vendors and system integrators, will likely expand to address a growing digital device market with applications such as high-resolution displays and higher-fidelity virtual reality devices, which will also benefit from adopting the USB4 standard.

“Keysight’s commitment to supporting an ecosystem based on the USB4 specification helps drive the adoption of the ubiquitous USB digital connectivity standard,” said Scott Bryden, vice president at Keysight Technologies. “By offering cost-effective test and measurement solutions that accelerate the development, implementation and deployment of new USB4 compatible devices, Keysight is strengthening a growing industry designed to enhance customer experiences.”

To help boost the adoption of the USB4 standard, Keysight offers a comprehensive portfolio of high-speed digital instrumentation including Keysight’s UXR real-time oscilloscope, which offers accuracy in waveform representation across a wide frequency range;  Keysight’s Vector Network Analyzers, which use a generated signal to analyze a network or device to deliver the accuracy needed to perform both linear and nonlinear device characterization; and Keysight’s highly integrated Bit Error Ratio Testers (BERTs), which identify errors introduced into the system when data is received, a critical capability in physical layer characterization, validation and compliance testing.

TE Connectivity Announced Ultra Small Spring Fingers

TE Connectivity (TE)’snew ultra small spring fingers have one of the smallest footprints in the market to save valuable PCB space, allowing for use in a broad range of applications with space constraints across various industries.TE’s ultra small spring fingerscan save valuable PCB space with one of the smallest footprints in the market. Closed-loop contact design ensures reliable connection to the PCB, better normal force and higher current capacity (1.5A). Robust side wall minimizes over- compression. Special anti-lifting design can improve assembly e ciency by locking the tip of the contact within the sidewall of the spring  nger, which helps prevent the contact from getting caught on an operator’s glove during assembly. Pick-and-place area supports auto-assembly processes. It also offered in different heights and styles.As an authorized distributor for TE Connectivity, Heilind Asia provides TE’s products and also value added services. Heilind Asia supports both original equipment …
