Measurement Software And Probe Aid Serial Bus Compliance Testing

The RT-Eye serial data compliance and analysis software and P7350SMA differential probe are designed to speed up critical compliance and validation testing for emerging serial data standards, such as PCI Express, Serial ATA and others. The tools work with the company’s TDS6000 and TDS/CSA7000 series oscilloscopes. RT-Eye transforms the host scope into an automated validation and compliance testing platform for copper-based serial standards operating at data rates up to 3.2 Gb/s. It provides software clock recovery, eye diagrams, and a range of parametric measurements in the amplitude, timing and jitter domains. Available with this release of the RT-Eye software are the PCI Express and InfiniBand Compliance Modules. The P7350SMA differential probe features 5 GHz bandwidth and true differential connectivity via SMA connectors. The TMS817 support package, a PCI Express debug and validation tool, is also available. Prices are: RT-Eye, $7,495; Compliance Modules, $995 each; P7350SMA probe, $7,200; and TMS817, $60,000 to $70,000, depending on configuration. TEKTRONIX INC., Beaverton, OR.
