Understand What The USB Power Delivery Analyzer Provides

The USB Power Delivery Analyzer non-intrusively monitors Power Delivery protocol traffic through a USB Type-C connection. This analyzer is rated for 5A continuous and up to 20V on the VBUS. You can even shop for the flash programmers for Texas Instruments from various online sources to avoid any kind of issue during the running of your system. 

You can monitor, analyze, test, and confirm the following:

  • VBUS and VCONN traffic

  • Power Delivery packages

  • Power Delivery negotiation

  • Sink/source level negotiation

  • Responses from electronically marked cables

  • Entrance/exit sequences

  • Sequences during interoperability tests

  • Switch in Pd/Rp/Pa resistors on configuration channels CC1 / CC2

The USB Power Delivery Analyzer supports USB 2.0 and USB 3.1.

How Do You Use the USB Power Delivery Analyzer?

When used with the Data Center Software (available via free download), you can measure and record the voltage and current on several of the signal lines in the USB Type-C connector. Using the built-in examples of the Data Center Software – before connecting the USB Power Delivery Analyzer or any other devices – you will see realistic instances of how to view and analyze real-time data. To do so:

  1. Install and turn on Data Center Software on your computer.

  2. On the menu, click Help, which opens the Example Captures pop-up window.

  3. This trace shows a real-time capture between a USB Type-C SINK and SOURCE, and how the Power Delivery messages are decoded and displayed. This provides an example of what you will see when you start using your devices.
