Thunderbolt

Thunderbolt™ technology, created by Intel, is a high-speed transmission interface solution. It can transmit data and video between traditional computer peripherals. It can even pass data directly from the internal bus to external devices using PCIe. This means a variety of devices on the PCIe interface can also be used with Thunderbolt™ technology to improve computing interconnectivity and interoperability. This offers flexibility and simplicity for thin system designs.

Thunderbolt™ Testing Services

  • Thunderbolt™ Certification Testing

The goal of Thunderbolt™ Certification is to assist vendors in verifying to potential customers that their devices meet all the necessary compliance specifications. For instance, Thunderbolt™ certified devices must function properly with different operating systems, provide high-speed data transmission, and interoperate with compatible devices to deliver optimal user experiences across digital ecosystems.

  • Thunderbolt™ Pre-compliance Test

Product certification testing is usually the final hurdle prior to product release. To avoid costly last-minute delays due to failed product certification testing, we recommend pre-compliance testing in the product design phase to catch potentially crippling issues as early as possible. Our pre-compliance testing uses the same methods as standard certification testing, including the same test environment, equipment, and test procedures. If our test experts discover any critical issues, they will help you locate and debug possible root causes and suggest practical solutions.

  • Interoperability Test

Allion also provides comprehensive interoperability testing to ensure that your device is fully compatible with a variety of Thunderbolt devices.
