  • Passmark USB3-Test showed bus errors

    I have observed CRC-16 physical link layer errors on one out of two USB 3.0 ports on my board. I am searching for the root cause of this issue.

    What chipset s being used in the host? Is this with a hub?

    It normally indicates some type of data corruption, maybe due to electrical issues.

      Are you using the front panel USB ports? Physical errors are common when using front ports.
      The physical errors occur in a USB 3.0 bus when there is a signal integrity issue. A limited number of these errors are considered normal as long as there are no link layer errors. Compared to physical errors, link layer errors are a major concern as they may cause resetting of the communication if the number of link layer errors exceed the threshold of 64.
