The Evolution of USB

In this world, cables have traditionally carried data with small amounts of power. The advent of USB Type-C is a game changer. Data rates double to 10 Gbps, while power carrying capabilities soar to 100 Watts. And...

  • Active circuitry and higher speeds increase the probability of a failure.
  • More wires create cable interoperability requirements.
  • Higher power increases potential damage from failure.

High-performance cables call for a high-performance cable tester – one that you can afford!


"One Google engineer's quest to test USB-C cables sold on Amazon ended in a disaster when a particularly shoddy one fried his gadgets."

- Mariella Moon,



Configurable for full-featured or USB 2.0 Type-C cables. Fully supports USB Type-C, Standard-A, Micro-B, Apple Lightning, HDMI, and DisplayPort.


Easily test cable safety with comprehensive continuity, DCR/IR drop, and E-Marker accuracy tests.


Gain insight from signal integrity testing on USB 2.0, USB 3.1 Gen 1, USB 3.1 Gen 2, all the way up to 12+ Gbps.

Cost Effective

At high volumes testing cables cost just pennies. Simple pass/fail indicators save operator time on the production line. Comprehensive laboratory interface replaces equipment that costs thousands of dollars.

The quickest and most convenient way to test USB, Lightning, and video cables. It provides:

  • Short testing, Open testing, Continuity testing - Dynamic visualization of test results
  • DC resistance measurement for all ground, power and non hi/superspeed data lines
  • Measure DC resistance of each power pin and wire; calculate maximum safe current capabilities
  • E-Marker verification
  • Lightning plug bring up/function, Over-voltage protection, Quiescent current consumption (Apple Lightning Cables, MFi membership required)*
  • Signal integrity testing of data lines to 12.8 Gbps per channel


  • USB 3.2/3.1/3.0/2.0
  • PD 2.0, PD 3.0

  • Continuity/Shorts/Open testing - Dynamic visualization of test results
  • DC resistance measurement for most wires, with milliohm precision on ground and power wires
  • Signal integrity testing off data lines to 12.8 Gbps per channel
  • E-Marker verification
  • HDMI-A to HDMI Type-A (Up to 12.8 Gbps per channel
  • DisplayPort to DisplayPort (DP 2.0 and earlier version specifications
  • Profiles to support Category 1, Category 2, and Category 3, either with or without HEAC
  • Continuity/Shorts/Open testing - Dynamic visualization of test results
  • DCR measurement of all wires except high-speed data lines
  • Signal integrity testing of data lines at up to 12.8 Gbps per channel
  • Continuity/Shorts/Opens testing - Dynamic visualization of test results
  • Power on for Lightning plug
  • USB 2.0 (DP/DM) signal integrity testing
  • DC Resistance testing for Ground and Power wires
  • Combined value of VBUS and GND DC resistance reported against specification
  • Quiescent current testing
  • Over-voltage protection testing
