Cost Effective and Flexible Solution for Automated Production Line Testing

UCD-240 is an automated test solution designed specifically for testing USB-C products in production line environment. UCD-240 features an efficient and effortless way of USB Type-C sinks and sources. UCD-240 test coverage includes:

  • Video & Audio
  • Electrical Test to verify whole USB-C connector with single cable insert
  • DisplayPort Alt Mode
  • Link
  • Power Delivery
  • USB 2.0 & 3.0 Functionalities
  • Built-in Automated Test Sets for:
    • CRC Based Video Tests
    • Link
    • Electrical Test

The provided software enables user access to the vital test parameters and configured tests can be easily run from the command-line. UCD-240 is also fully compatible with third-party test management softwares e.g. NI TestStand. Unigraf's Test System Interface enables easy integration of automated tests into existing test systems.

Complete Set for Automated Testing

UCD-240 comes as a plug & play package ready for automated tests. The delivery content includes UCD-240 HW Test Tool, All necessary TSI Software with licenses, Electrical Testing cable supporting automatic CC line flip and a USB 3.0 flash drive with pre-stored sequence files.

Unigraf's Unique Electrical Tests

In production line testing it is crucial to ensure that components in the DUT are functional and soldering process and assembly were successful. UCD-240’s Electrical Test can verify whole USB-C connector with single cable insertion. Electrical Test verifies that all the connector pins are properly soldered. With Electrical Test you can make sure that components in the DUT are functional and soldering and assembly of the components is done properly.

Three Options for Test Automation

Run tests with UCD Console and Command-line

UCD Console GUI, delivered with each UCD-240 device, is used for specifying all test parameters used in the automated tests. You can easily select and modify all necessary test parameters according to your DUT needs. After the tests have been configured and stored in a known location, desired tests can be run straight from the command-line. You simply need to press enter and you will see if the selected tests pass or fail.

The video below shows how you can set up, configure and run automated tests on USB Type-C smartphone straight from the command-line.

Run Automated Tests with Third Party Test Management Software

UCD-240 is also compatible with third party Test Management Software e.g. NI TestStand. You can create your own tests or use the tests available to run automated tests with third party Test Management Software.

Unigraf’s Test System Interface (TSI)

Unigraf’s SDK for test automation is called Test System Interface (TSI). UCD-240 can also be used with TSI. TSI is a hardware independent, high-level Software API (Software Application Interface). It offers compact and short cycle time test routines with which the functionality of most common display interfaces can be verified.

The use of TSI and the Test Cases significantly simplifies integrators’ need to do application specific programming. TSI ensures the compatibility of the application software with any Unigraf test equipment hardware. Both TSI and Test Cases ensure the user flexibility for future upgrades and, what is a major cost factor, re-use of the written code of the software.
