Ideal solution for engineers conducting reliability tests of high power USB Power Delivery devices via time-based and current-based charging/discharging cycles in high volume
Granite River Labs (GRL), a global leader in engineering services and test solutions for connectivity, is pleased to announce the latest offering in its class-leading line of USB Power Delivery (USB PD) based test equipment with the V-DPWR USB PD Dual Role Power Tester (GRL-V-DPWR). Allowing for loading and sourcing up to 100W from a single USB-C port along with USB data loop back testing, the V-DPWR addresses the needs of high power testing of USB Type-C® Dual Role Power devices such as hosts, devices, hubs and power banks.
The USB-PD is a universal standard that enables devices using USB-C to be fast charged by delivering increased power to devices with greater power demands. GRL’s V-DPWR Dual Role Power Tester addresses the needs of test engineers with demanding test requirements for their USB Type-C®/PD hosts and devices - an ideal solution for testing in reliability and environmental chambers as well as high volume production. The V-DPWR is capable of supplying and loading power from a single 100W USB-C port and 7.5W per port for VCONN power loading. Furthermore, it supports data loopback functionality in Device Mode for USB 2.0 and USB 3.2 up to 5Gbps. This allows the user to simultaneously exercise USB PD Power and Data while test stressing the device.
With V-DPWR's powerful interface software, along with an open API for power users to interface with their own internal systems, users can use their own software written using C#, NI Test Stand, and Python, for customized control. V-DPWR can thus be easily integrated into existing workflows. Testing only takes a few seconds per test case and can remain in continuous operation indefinitely for long test cycles.
Essentially, the V-DPWR is an efficient production tester for engineers who need to conduct reliability testing of power banks and batteries via time-based and current-based charging/discharging cycles in high volume.
“GRL is proud to offer the V-DPWR solution that adds to our list of solutions for functional interoperability and production,” said Rajaraman V, GRL Executive Vice President of Protocol & Power Solutions. “The V-DPWR USB PD Dual Role Power & Data Loop Back Tester is able to test battery pack performance and analyze charging/ discharging cycles over USB PD, so any device - battery packs, laptops, cell phones, tablets - can benefit from the characterization tests performed by this test equipment.”
With front panel LEDs that indicate data enumeration, the V-DPWR is easy to use with minimal training with test results automatically stored and accessible for test analysis. The V-DPWR offers unrivaled power, performance, and speed in an affordable, benchtop package. Fast, easy to use and cost-effective, V-DPWR is an ideal solution for testing in reliability and environmental chambers as well as high volume production.
