The Authority on USB Certification and Testing

Our client partners depend on us for USB compliance and certification testing (as licensed by the USB-IF) on virtually every type of USB product. NTS testing facilities in the U.S., Japan and Hong Kong can ensure your products are compatible with all USB specifications, including:

  • USB Compliance (SuperSpeed®, high-speed, full-speed and low-speed silicon, peripheral and system/hub/host controller).
  • USB hubs, add-in host controller cards and systems.
  • USB On-The-Go Compliance Testing (high-speed and full-speed products).
  • USB Embedded Host Compliance Testing (high-speed and full-speed hosts).

NTS is authorized to perform Wireless USB Compliance Testing and SuperSpeed device testing. We perform testing of wireless USB products using the same procedures tested and refined at many USB “plugfests.” Our exceptional USB resume also includes the development of a USB Golden Suite to evaluate the functionality of your USB device in the real world (with other USB devices and USB chipsets from various manufacturers).

Wireless Rules: USB Compatibility/Functionality Golden Suite

Where would most of us be without wireless technology? Lost! Wireless area networks (WAN-based Wi-Fi) are the preferred (and free) way to connect devices to the Internet in public spaces. Wireless low-powered networks (like ZigBee) connect air conditioning units in hotel rooms to a main control server. Personal area networks (like Bluetooth®) connect smartphones to cars, headphones, computers and more. And don’t forget Wireless USB for untethering peripherals (keyboards, mice, hard drives) from laptops and desktops.

WPC Qi Wireless Battery Charging Testing/Registration

NTS is an authorized test lab for the Qi standard. Depending on the device type (base station or mobile device), NTS performs testing using the latest version of the WPC Qi Test Plan, which covers load modulation, identification and configuration, power transfer and user interface. After your product passes testing, it is submitted to WPC as a “Registered Product.”

And if your wireless product can also use a wire or cable to connect to a computer (for music, video, image and file transfers), NTS can assist you with USB compliance testing.

Exclusive MoCA Testing and MoCA 2.0 Certification Testing

NTS was selected by the Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) to be the exclusive authorized lab to execute and manage the MoCA certification program. MoCA is an industry driven standard that guides in-home networking of digital video and entertainment products using existing coaxial cable, such as:

  • “Triple play” technologies (voice, data and video).
  • Products certified for MoCA 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0, including broadband home routers, high-speed cable modems and set-top boxes.

Dedicated to All-Important Over the Air Antenna Testing

From the R&D phase of your Internet of Things (IoT) device or Machine to Machine (M2M) product, NTS is here to ensure the functionality, proper placement and reliability of antennas on your products. Knowing that the antenna you design will perform as intended is absolutely imperative. Over-the-Air antenna testing and measurements are the only ways to qualify the entire signal path and antenna pattern of a wireless device.

Here is a partial list of NTS OTA Measurement Services:

  • Antenna testing, characterization and radiation pattern measurement
  • Capture level of radiation at antenna’s peak direction
  • Measure amount of input energy an antenna radiates
  • PTCRB and CTIA Approved Testing
  • TRP (Total Radiated Power)
  • Measure antenna power radiation
  • TIS (Total Isotropic Sensitivity)
