At Codethink we’re focused on automation and we’re focused on open source.

As part of our efforts to automate testing on embedded Linux projects (in our case, large automotive projects), we wanted to be able to programmatically switch between different USB ports. For example, to switch from an empty port to a port with a new system image, or to mimic plugging in a USB device such as a smart phone.

We couldn’t find a suitable, cost effective or open-source solution, so we decided to develop one ourselves.

In this talk we will introduce the USB Switch: a feature rich, bi-directional USB-C switch. We’ll go into detail on the features and the typical use cases.
