Anritsu Corporation has announced strengthened Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A PCI Express receiver tests.
These strengthened functions upgrade the high-quality waveform performance of the PAM4 PPG MU196020A to the latest high-speed, large-capacity PCI Express standards for PCIe receiver tests. As a result, customers planning and developing PCIe Gen6 (PAM4 32 Gbaud) products for data centers and other applications now have an all-in-one measuring instrument covering future PCIe Gen6 upgrades as well as current PCIe 3.0/4.0/5.0 receiver tests.
The Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A series are multichannel bit error rate (BER) measuring instruments required for designing and inspecting next-generation network interfaces, such as 400 and 800GbE, as well as high-speed bus interfaces, such as PCI Express 4.0/5.0, USB3.2/4, Thunderbolt, etc.
These added functions support early-stage development of PAM4 PCIe 6.0 equipment using the PAM4 PPG MU196020A with high-quality data output performance. Moreover, combined use with the existing SI ED MU195040A PCI solution supports PCIe 3.0/4.0/5.0 compliance tests as an all-in-one solution for PAM4 performance evaluations and compliance tests.
These version upgrades add the following functions:
- Equalizer Search function for easy PAM4 BER measurement using high-performance PAM4 ED MU196040B and Eye Contour functions for evaluating PAM4 signal Eye margin characteristics.
- SAS3/4 and DP1.4 receiver tests using PPG/ED MU195020A/MU195040A.
