Saelig Introduces Teledyne LeCroy Mercury T2C/T2P USB2.0 Protocol and Power Analyzers

03 July 2018

Saelig Company Inc. announces the availability of the new Teledyne LeCroy Mercury T2P and T2C USB2.0 analyzers, low cost, robust USB Type-C protocol analyzers with upgraded VBUS (power) analysis and optional support for DisplayPort™ Auxiliary channel message decoding. They offer full support for USB 2.0 protocol testing and add advanced USB Type-C analysis capabilities. There are two base models: the Mercury T2C and the new Mercury T2P, which adds the Power Tracker™ graphical analysis of VBUS and CC Source: Saelig Company, Inc. Source: Saelig Company, Inc. voltages. These pocket-sized analyzers capture and decode the widest range of USB 2.0 device classes plus Type-C link states and Power Delivery 3.0 messages. Both the Mercury T2P and T2C utilize the industry-leading CATC Trace analysis software for verifying and debugging USB and PD protocol issues.

Power Tracker is a versatile power analysis tool for testing power delivery protocols and guides USB Power Delivery (PD) designs to safely provide appropriate charging currents across a growing range of USB devices. The Power Tracker tool monitors the real-time voltage and current on VBUS, VCONN and the USB Type-C Communication Channel (CC), and it displays voltage and current in a histogram format as well as simultaneous synchronized message level traffic.

These advanced analysis capabilities come in a low-cost, high-quality device that includes the widely implemented alternate mode (Alt Mode) of Type C - DisplayPort (DP). The Mercury T2P offers the ability to capture and decode DisplayPort Auxiliary channel messages, including configuration messages, enabling DP connectivity troubleshooting. Power Delivery 3.0 protocol capture is also available as a licensed option. This mode provides full analysis and decoding of all PD packets over the CC link including source/sink communication, authentication, firmware update, and alt-mode commands.

The Mercury T2P includes many of the advanced analysis features found on Teledyne LeCroy's high-end Voyager analyzer, including sequential and hierarchical displays, protocol traffic summaries, detailed error reports and comprehensive USB device-class decoding.

The Mercury T2C/T2P USB2.0 analyzers start at $995 from Teledyne LeCroy's authorized North American distributor Saelig Company Inc., Fairport, New York.
