Anritsu announced that its Signal Quality Analyzer-R (SQA-R) MP1900A has been certified as a compliance test solution for PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0 technology Link Equalization (Link EQ) tests and Receiver (Rx) Jitter Tolerance tests by the PCI-SIG consortium. This newly certified measurement solution from Anritsu will address the market need to shorten inspection times of high-speed serial bus interfaces during development, which has become increasingly more time-consuming.
Integrated Test Solution Shortens Inspection Times of High-speed Serial Bus Interfaces During Development While Offering Cost-effective Scalability to PCI Express 4.0 and 5.0 Architecture
With support for the PCI Express 3.0 specification, as well as expandability to PCI Express 4.0 and 5.0 specifications, the MP1900A helps control capital equipment expenses while supporting various tests, such as PHY layer electrical characteristics and protocol tests, using a high-quality waveform pulse pattern generator (PPG) and high-sensitivity error detector (ED).
The certified test solution integrates the SQA-R MP1900A with the Teledyne LeCroy SDA830Zi-B Serial Data Analyzer that has up to 30 GHz bandwidth and 80 GS/s sample rate. “By offering simple expandability to support future PCI Express 4.0 and 5.0 specifications, the solution doesn’t only improve test times but also reduces cost-of-test”, says Anritsu.
