Agilent Technologies introduced two new test applications that leverage the bandwidth and low jitter performance of the Infiniium 86100D DCA-X oscilloscope. Agilent N1012A compliance test software is an automated application based on the Optical Internetworking Forum’s Common Electrical Interface (OIF CEI) 3.0 Implementation Agreement. The Agilent N1019A user-defined application, on the other hand, enables engineers to develop their own automated test applications.
The N1012A compliance test software performs a wide range of oscilloscope-based and network analyzer-based tests for the OIF CEI 3.0 Implementation Agreement. The software also provides 5- to 28-Gb/s physical-layer transmitter measurements for engineers designing to the requirements of OIF CEI 3.0, including the 28G-VSR (very short reach) interface. Product developers can use debug mode to rapidly troubleshoot their designs.
The N1019A application expands the capability of the existing N5467A user-defined application for Agilent s real-time oscilloscopes to include the 86100D DCA-X. Users can create their own tests, automated test groups, test limits with descriptions, measurement configurations, and customized reports.
Engineers designing and verifying OIF CEI 3.0 devices also can use the Agilent J-BERT N4903B high-performance serial BERT for physical-layer receiver compliance testing and characterization.
