Software Provides One Box Serial Data Receiver Test Solution

Tailored for use with the AWG7000 arbitrary-waveform generator, the SerialXpress software package performs direct synthesis of waveforms for high-speed serial data receiver testing, SATA, SAS, PCI-Express, HDMI, and DisplayPort standards, and any other serial bus technology operating at speeds up to 6 Gb/s. Reportedly, the application provides an easy to use interface that makes the creation and management of high-speed waveforms far more intuitive. Paired with the AWG7000, the software claims to be the only one-box high-speed serial data signal generator for receiver stress and BER testing, eliminating the need for multiple instruments and complex test configurations. Users are able to recall a setup file that encapsulates all of relevant standards tests and signal impairments without the need for additional components or mixing. To replicate test scenarios across multiple labs, AWG setup file deployment is manageable through electronic circulation of files, enabling test systems worldwide to have consistent settings and capabilities and with no external hardware dependencies. Pricing for SerialXpress begins at $7,000. TEKTRONIX INC., Beaverton, OR. (800) 426-2200.
