Scope Software Offers Serial Data Link Analysis

Serial data link analysis (SDLA) software for the DSA70000 real-time oscilloscope series allows the instruments to fully test high-speed serial data designs such as SATA 6 Gb/s, SuperSpeed USB, 6 Gb/s SAS, and PCI-Express 3.0, from the transmitter through the receiver. With the SDLA software, engineers can employ a real-time oscilloscope to develop compliant high-speed serial designs on systems that operate at rates as high as 8 Gb/s. The software provides channel emulation, transmitter pre- and de-emphasis, test fixture de-embedding, time, and frequency domain plots to aid debug. Additionally, the package provides a seamless interface with DPOJET, a comprehensive package for jitter and BER analysis. Options include feed-forward equalization and decision-feedback equalization with three modes of adaptation to emulate the waveform at the receiver. Prices for SDLA Essentials and SDLA Advanced are $3,000 and $7,000, respectively. TEKTRONIX INC., Beaverton, OR. (800) 426-2200.
