USB Power Delivery Fast Role Swap (FRS) Switch
The USB Power Delivery Fast Role Swap switches provide a tool to simulate a loss of external power. They are currently available to use for correlation, validation and debugging of USB Fast Role Swap architecture. Please note these are not to be used for USB-IF certification purposes at this time.
The switches support up to 20 volts at up to 10A of current designed to work at full functionality from between 0 to 40 degrees Celsius. The switches should not be loaded for an extended period.
When connecting or disconnecting the DC side spliced power line to the FRS Switch via the banana plug connectors, users *MUST* disconnect the AC/DC power adapter from AC power and ensure all residual power in the AC/DC adapter is discharged.
The USB PD FRS Switch is available to USB-IF Members only. Please find the User Guide here.

QuadraMAX Tool Details
- The QuadraMAX consists of four sink ports.
- Up to three QuadraMAXes can be linked for testing devices with up to 12 ports.
- Each sink can load 100W. Across four ports the QuadraMAX can maintain 320W load, with a peak of 400W.
- QuadraMAX uses a CC load and a CR load. The CR load is achieved with a 75us FW feedback loop.
- QuadraMAX Vbus tolerance before load drops is 2 V - 2.5 V.
- QuadraMAX captures Vbus voltage and current in 15us - 250us adjustable sample rates. Captures taken during connect / disconnect / voltage transition / load transition / hard reset.
- Port 4 can also be programmed to a 5V 5A source. This is used during cable testing and can also be done for manual debug through the QuadDraw Reins window.
- Port 1 has a switchable ground isolation from the other ports during the cable drop test.
- QuadDraw automatically updates to the latest software and firmware when the controlling computer has an internet connection.
Each QuadraMAX includes the following:
- Qty 1 - QuadraMAX
- Qty 1 - Power Supply with ferrite core (12V 4.2A)
