Tiny-PAT – USB-C power adapter tester
Con dos modos de realización de pruebas (manual y automático), este testeador de alimentación USB-C es una solución compacta, económica y stand-alone.
We are quickly entering the age of USB Type-C. This “jack of all trades” port is appearing in more and more new electronic devices.
USB Type-C helps to reduce reliance on proprietary power adapters and USB cables; you can move to a single, robust, and compact solution that works on all devices. USB-C is quickly replacing various USB-B and USB-A connectors and cables with a standard that is meant to be “future-proof.”
As more and more of our devices will be using USB-C power adapters, it is essential that developers and manufacturers have an easy way to test their USB-C power adapters during development and manufacturing.
That’s where the USBCEE Tiny-PAT comes in – it’s the world’s smallest, fastest, easiest, and lowest cost USB-C power adapter tester.
Who Needs Tiny-PAT
- Marketing/Sales Professionals: Demonstrate power adapter quality
- USB-C Power Adapter Developers: Make quick, easy, and repeatable tests
- IT Technicians: Cut debugging steps and go straight to the source quickly and easily
How Tiny-PAT Compares
Traditional USB-C testing devices are expensive, cumbersome, and time-consuming to use. USBCEE aims to change that by developing the Tiny-PAT: a small, user-friendly, inexpensive, and powerful testing tool.
Testing during USB-PD power adapter design is always a challenge. Today, testing requires an Ellisys / LeCroy / MQP / GRL test box to perform very simple voltage transition tests, and just the setup alone is time-consuming.
Additionally, these test tools are very expensive. Do you share your current testing devices with a number of other colleagues? It is a huge waste of time, effort, and money when you are constantly waiting for your turn to use the testing equipment.
