For this workshop we are certifying PD 3.0 Chargers and PD 3.0 Silicon that are a Source only. If DRP or Sink then testing will be for information only at this time.

USB PD 3.0 Charger and PD 3.0 Silicon testing time will be determined based on your product features. PD Chargers with PPS can take up to four days. Testing time will be determined by the USB-IF once your VIF is received. All registrations will be placed on the waitlist. You will be notified if your product receives a testing slot and the USB-IF will assign your testing days. Products on the waitlist are not guaranteed a testing slot.

Note: Registrants with PPS must bring two samples.

Note: If your PD 3.0 Silicon has PPS and you would like full PPS testing you must register as the USB 3.0 Charger with PPS category.


USB Power Delivery products should register under the type of product and the speed they support.

  • For example:  A host that supports USB 3.1 with PD should register under the category 1 USB 3.1 Host. Please make sure to answer the PD specific questions in the registration form.
  • If your PD silicon does not support a product speed and you are certifying the PD Only Silicon please register under the category PD Only Silicon.

Schedule Notes

  • Battery-powered devices must test with a dead battery in addition to normal testing. Bringing your product with a discharged battery (i.e. device is unable to power on) is required.
  • Bring quality equipment.  Poor-quality monitors, mice, keyboards, etc. sometimes used at prior workshops have made it difficult to get the test sessions finished on time.
  • If you miss your assigned test time, you forfeit your test slot.  It will NOT be possible to reschedule testing at this workshop.
  • USB 2.0 Peripheral (no PD) and embedded host vendors must check-in at the USB Hospitality Suite between 8:00 and 8:45 AM on the starting day of your testing session to confirm your testing slot.  If you do not check-in, you forfeit your testing slot
  • Debug services will not be available.  Please be sure to pre-test and debug your devices before attending.  There will be no rescheduling of test times.  

Testing Information

Reminder for Devices

USB-IF Compliance Program

Devices with captive cables must use a connector currently on the Integrators List. Devices using a detachable cable must use a cable assembly currently on the Integrators List.

For details on the tests performed see the USB-IF Compliance Program.

The Interoperability Gold Tree and test procedures will follow the procedure defined at http://compliance.usb.org/index.asp?UpdateFile=Interoperability#11. Interoperability testing will be on Windows 10.

Attention Vendors Seeking Certification for their Devices:

Compliance workshops run on a schedule and there is a limited amount of time available to test your product.  It is your responsibility to ensure that all required tests are performed on your product.  Please refer to the USB 2.0 test matrix and USB 3.0 test matrix

The product must be able to be tested in the time allotted.  Peripherals and hosts are given 90 minutes each. The USB-IF cannot guarantee that all tests can be performed on your device in the time allocated.  There is little time, if any, for debugging so be sure to thoroughly test the device beforehand.  Any test marked “incomplete” will prevent certification.  Please be sure to ask the volunteers executing the tests for a copy of the test results and review them carefully before leaving the workshop.  The USB-IF is not responsible for missing results. 

The test schedule is based on information obtained from the online device registration.  If your product is unusual (has more than one USB connector, includes an embedded host, requires special equipment to operate, etc…) please contact the USB‑IF Administration prior to the workshop to make arrangements for special handling.  The USB-IF reserves the right to require additional tests upon inspection of the device at the workshop.

Retesting is permitted by permission only pending available time.  If corrections are made to a device during the workshop, obtain a Retest Slip from the hospitality suite.  A detailed explanation of the failure and the corrections performed is needed in order to determine what compliance tests are to be performed.  There is no assurance that time will be available to retest a device.

All tests are to be performed on one device.  Exchanging a device with another during compliance testing is strictly prohibited. If a device must be replaced due to a breakdown, all tests on the broken device become void and a complete retest is required.


Compliance Testing:

Peripheral Test Sessions
This workshop will include an Implementers Forum-established and -staffed test suite for USB peripherals. Test software used will primarily cover Chapter 9 of the USB spec, electrical characteristics and interoperability with other USB devices. Peripherals that provide external interfaces (flash card readers, Ethernet adapters, etc.) must provide hardware to fully populate the external interfaces. Peripheral vendors will be scheduled into the suite one at a time. Briefly, the test procedure includes: attaching the peripheral; loading the driver; and running tests against the peripheral; the results will be recorded and used as one of the elements in determining USB compliance. For detailed information, please visit
http://www.usb.org/developers/compliance and http://compliance.usb.org.

The USB-IF intends to test battery-powered devices with a dead battery in addition to normal testing. Bringing your product with a discharged battery (i.e. device is unable to power on) is required. This is to investigate dead battery current consumption with the potential to become a compliance requirement in the future.

System Test Sessions
This workshop will include an Implementers Forum-established and -staffed test suite for High Speed and USB 3.1 Gen 1 capable USB systems. High Speed tests will primarily cover Chapter 7 of the USB spec, electrical characteristics, power management, and interoperability with other USB devices.
USB 3.1 Gen 1 tests will primarily cover electrical characteristics, link and protocol layers, power management, and interoperability with other USB devices. Vendors need to ensure they install the English version of Windows 10. The OS should have all current service packs and updates applied. Non-legacy systems/motherboards must have a functioning LAN port to support remote desktop. System vendors will be scheduled into the suite one at a time. The results will be recorded and used as one of the elements in determining USB compliance. For detailed information, please visit http://www.usb.org/developers/compliance and http://compliance.usb.org.


For Hosts - The latest CV must be installed on the host, and a method of interacting with the GUI needs to be available. (Keeping in mind that you will lose the ability to use any USB ports in front of the host controller under test.)


For Hubs - A separate host must be available, with the same requirements as above. This host must be connected to the hub's upstream port, so that the CV can be used while performing Host Link Layer testing on a downstream port.

Specifications
A product's admittance to the Integrators List is based, in part, on a handful of compliance tests performed in the USB-IF suites. As time goes on and the technology matures we will add tests for problems discovered in these suites. Some tests are provided to raise awareness of potential problems in products and others are required to pass the workshop for the purposes of getting a product listed on the Integrators List.
