Connector Test Requirements

The USB-IF Integrators List criteria for cables and connectors has been greatly enhanced. We now require testing as described in the Connector Test Matrix for a connector to be listed. This means that you can have very high confidence that a product on the Integrators List will work well for both Original USB and Hi-Speed USB systems, hubs and peripherals. We have removed products from the Integrators list that were tested before January of 1999. If your product was tested before 1999, you would need to retest them.

If you manufacture cables or connectors and would like to get your products tested and on the list (or back on the list), please contact one of the qualified labs listed below to run these tests. Manufacturers should note that a connector must be submitted assembled into a cable assembly with a mating receptacle to be tested. If you do not manufacture both mating parts or assemble cables you must still chose a vendor and supply the assembled, mated set for testing. For additional details on how to do testing, please reference the Cable and Connector Class Document.

The USB 3.0 Cable and Connector Compliance Document Rev 1.0 is also available.
