iST indicated particularly in the high-transmission USB testing services that iST has signed a Cooperation Agreement with America’s biggest and the world’s top 5 safety standard certification laboratory Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Effective from today, these two parties will jointly start finding overall solutions for technical problems worldwide, delegating cases between each other based on company’s expertise and developing the global market for signal transmission test.
Recently, UL Taiwan, has become an Independent Test Labs (ITL) authorized by USB Implementers Forum and being able to perform full series certification test of USB for test items including Host, Device / Peripherals, Cable Assemblies & Connectors, Power Bricks and Power Delivery.
As for iST in recent two years, it not only became an authorized Test Center (ATC) of HDMI、MHL、DisplayPortTM testing and certification, but also took the lead and had been authorized by Simplay Labs specific to the certification of HDMI® Alt Mode for USB Type-C™.
The Cooperation Agreement between iST and UL underscores a comprehensive High Speed Signal Transmission Test of Cable over 3C mobile and IoV devices will be activated by these two parties, which means in the future, the up, the middle and the downstream manufacturers of 3C mobile devices can apply integrated testing and certification services of HDMI, MHL, DisplayPort, and whole series of USB by either iST or UL.
iST observed, electronic products have largely gone wireless, however, the signal transmission through cable is still the last mile for all the high speed transmission.
The major significance on this cooperation between iST and UL is to allow iST to offer a comprehensive and customized platform for its signal testing business after the USB testing service is added.
