Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that the company´s early research and development in high-speed digital technology will enable the 5G and IoT device ecosystems to accelerate adoption of the recently released USB4™ specification, the company said.

Keysight is committed to developing solutions that deliver accuracy, high signal fidelity and performance. As a result, the company was active in the timely publication of the next-generation USB4 specification by the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF). A wide range of products, including smartphones, laptops, desktop computers, tablets, and digital cameras, will rely on this next-generation high-speed digital standard.

USB4, a plug and play interface for inter-digital communication, is based on the Thunderbolt™ protocol specification and offers significant advantages in bandwidth, power and data delivery.

Close industry collaboration and development of solutions for design characterization and validation for Thunderbolt™ have enabled Keysight to better serve an ecosystem built around reversible and backward compatible USB Type-C® connectors. This ecosystem, consisting of silicon vendors and system integrators, will likely expand to address a growing digital device market with applications such as high-resolution displays and higher-fidelity virtual reality devices, which will also benefit from adopting the USB4 standard.
