Electrical test solutions for DSA8300 sampling oscilloscopes

Equivalent time automated compliance test solutions have been introduced by Tektronix for 4-lane 100G electrical interfaces defined in the IEEE 802.3bm and 802.3bj specifications.

Available for company performance oscilloscopes, the TekExpress application supports 100G Ethernet electrical validation and characterisation needs. Specific supported technologies are 100GBASE-CR4, 100GBASE-KR4 and CAUI-4.

With these additions, the company claims to offer the most complete set of IEEE 802.3bm and 802.3bj solutions covering both optical (100GBASE-SR4) and electrical validation tools.

The CAUI-4/KR4/CR4 test automation solution operates on either the DSA8300 sampling platform or the high performance DPO70000SX 70, 59 and 50GHz real time oscilloscopes. These platforms are said to deliver low noise and measurement accuracy.

The company claims to offer these software validation tools on both systems to give customers the flexibility of real time or the precision of equivalent time instruments.
