Technical Insight
More and more SSD vendors have applied the newly invented “3D NAND Flash” and “NVMe Communications Protocol” to their latest products. In this article, we not only explained how these two technologies affect the current SSD market but also analyzed the increasing demands of different SSD users and shared how they perceive the quality of their storage equipment.

We recently found vendors often face challenges when testing those “USB-C” products support USB BC V1.2 via our USB-IF certified test equipment, UCPET. Therefore, we develop two new test fixtures, "AUT17032" and "AUT17034," allowing to convert USB-C signals to UCPET’s USB Micro-B port.
