    Ellisys USB Explorer 260 Multifunction USB 2.0 Protocol Test System


    The Ellisys USB Explorer 260 is a sophisticated protocol test system for USB traffic monitoring, driver and software stack debugging, protocol compliance verification and performance analysis. The EX260 can reduce your R&D development time by finding issues early and debugging more efficiently, and can improve quality and reliability by verifying compliance to the specifications.

    • The multifunction USB Explorer 260 can:
    • analyze USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 links at any speed, including OTG and the new InterChip-USB;
    • emulate USB hosts and devices;
    • inject pre-defined error patterns for stress and error recovery testing; and,
    • automatically verify compliance to the USB and class specifications.

    Designed to be "USB 3.0-ready", it is based on Ellisys' new industry-leading hardware embedding 1 GB of memory and a high-performance custom-made processor with the processing power required to test the USB 3.0's new 5 Gbps Super-Speed mode. Super-Speed support will be provided through an optional hardware upgrade. This will permit cost-effective re-use -- rather than replacement -- of the EX260 hardware as the specification evolves.

    Each flexible Ellisys USB Explorer 260 hardware unit is capable of acting either as a protocol analyzer or a packet generator depending on configuration.


    The Ellisys USB Explorer 260 Analyzer includes Ellisys' extensive analysis features with real-time monitoring, hard-disk data streaming, in-depth class decoding, comprehensive traffic statistics, and powerful triggering and filtering.

    The EX260 analyzer is based on Ellisys' renown USB analysis software that is well-proven for validating device enumeration, solving communication issues, detecting interoperability problems and optimizing performance.

    The Ellisys USB Explorer 260 Generator supplements protocol analysis by emulating USB devices and hosts, and by testing corner cases and recovery mechanisms. Reproducible traffic, timing and error scenarios can be created with a powerful scripting environment. Captured traffic can be replayed to test a particular situation. The Generator supports the industry's first Inline Error Injection feature to insert programmed errors between a host and device to determine the impact of transmission errors under rare conditions.

    The Generator also includes the Ellisys USB Pre-Compliance Automated Testing software. This software controls a generator and an optional analyzer to automatically verify the compliance of devices against the USB specification and classes specifications such as HID and Mass Storage.

    The Ellisys USB Explorer 260 Duo is a flexible bundle of two full-featured units that can be used as one analyzer and one generator, two analyzers or two generators depending on your testing requirements. More convenient than having both functions on the same unit, this allows you to better share your test equipment among your R&D team.

    Inline Error Injection Setup

    USB Device Examiner Software Package

    The 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.The device's class is detected and tests pertinent to that class are automatically loaded.Device Examiner software then executes a suite of tests, monitors and resulting interactions, and generates a report detailing the pass/fall results of each individual test.

    Optionally, Device Examiner can also control an Ellisys260 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.Device Examiner's convenient "Run Failures" feature accelerates the process of re-testing after fixing bugs, by rerunning 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 optimized hardware implementation of the USB Explorer 260 packet generator.

    Device Examiner is a standard feature, included at not additional charge with the Ellisys USB Explorer 260 Generator and the Ellisys USB Explorer 260 Duo.
