CAMI Research Inc. has released a USB Type-C test interface board for its CableEye cable and
harness testing systems. A daughter board, populated with two USB-C female connectors, it allows users to continuity-check USB Type-C terminated cables using the CableEye tester while seeing the connectors-undertest rendered graphically. The CB26U fits all CableEye models.
CAMI offers the CableEye suite of products complete with accessories—including “connector boards.” The selection of these test fixture boards is constantly growing and is currently numbering over 60—most of which are populated with ‘families’ of connectors. When pre-populated boards are used, the tester GUI automatically displays a graphic of the connectors under test.
Sold as a set of two boards, each CB26U accepts two USB Type-C connectors. In addition to the latest CableEye software, it requires the CB26 small-frame motherboard (Item 756) for operation, and plugs into one of two available slots—two USB-C-connectors can be tested simultaneously. The CB26 (with CB26U) attaches to the tester like a regular connector board.
