Anritsu Presents Measurement System For PCI-Express Compliance Tests

  • Provides all-in-one coverage for evaluating PCI Express and high-speed Ethernet equipment
  • Can test next-gen network interfaces

Anritsu Corporation announces the start of sales of its industry-first measurement solution, the Signal Quality Analyser-R MP1900A series for Tx/Rx LEQ test systems specified in the PCI-Express® (PCIe) 5.0 Compliance Test items.

The developed PCIe Gen5 Link Training MX183000A-PL025 option and PCIe 5.0 Tx/Rx LEQ Test Automation software can be used with the MP1900A as a PCIe 3.0/4.0 Tx/Rx LEQ Test measurement platform. With this added support for PCIe 5.0 Tx/Rx LEQ tests, this system becomes the industry’s first measurement solution covering the PCIe 3.0, 4.0, and 5.0 standards.

Increasing demand for fast processing

5G services that offer high-speed communications using massive data volumes are expected to drive rapid advances in technologies, such as IoT, AI, etc.


Data centres forming the backbone of this technology revolution are also experiencing an increasing need for high-speed data processing and are adopting PCI Express technology for internal interfaces in data-centre transmission equipment, servers, storage, etc., with expectations for early release of PCI 5.0 products offering transmission speeds of 32 GT/s.

Measuring equipment for diverse applications

The Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A series is a multichannel BER measuring instrument for designing and testing next-generation network interfaces, such as 200/400/800G Ethernet, and high-speed-bus interfaces, such as PCI Express 4.0/5.0, USB3.2/4, and Thunderbolt.

With built-in pulse pattern generator (PPG) offering high-quality waveforms (low intrinsic jitter of 115 fs RMS), high-sensitivity (15 mV) error detector (ED), high-accuracy jitter (SJ, RJ, SSC, BUJ) generation sources, and CM-I/DM-I/white-noise sources, it has a diverse application range, covering compliance and margin tests, troubleshooting, etc.

Additionally, the MP1900A provides all-in-one coverage for evaluating PCI Express and high-speed Ethernet equipment such as PAM4 optical modules and NICs used by data-centre 200/400/800G Ethernet installations, thus facilitating the introduction of next-generation interfaces.
