Agilent Technologies introduced two new test applications that leverage the high bandwidth and low jitter performance of the Infiniium 86100D DCA-X oscilloscope. Agilent N1012A compliance test software is the industry’s first automated application for the Optical Internetworking Forum’s Common Electrical Interface (OIF CEI) 3.0 Implementation Agreement. Agilent N1019A user-defined application, on the other hand, enables engineers to rapidly develop their own automated test applications. Both software packages help developers save time and money.
Agilent 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 Agilent N1019A user-defined 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.
The new applications for 86100D DCA-X oscilloscope provide design and validation engineers with a fast and easy way to verify physical-layer transmitter compliance to the appropriate standards. 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. Agilent’s 86100D DCA-X oscilloscope and plug-in modules are ideal for OIF CEI 3.0 and other high-speed serial product testing. They offer the industry’s lowest intrinsic jitter, a wide range of bandwidths, and electrical and optical interfaces.
