Industry’s First 32 Gb/s Protocol-Aware Bit Error Rate Tester Eases 4th Generation Standards Receiver Testing

New Tektronix BSX Series BERTScope Features Built-in De-emphasis, Fast Protocol Handshaking for PCIe 4.0, USB 3.1 Receiver Validation and Troubleshooting

BEAVERTON, Ore., Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Tektronix, Inc., a leading worldwide provider of measurement solutions, today introduced the industry’s first 32 Gb/s protocol-aware bit error rate test and analysis system. The new Tektronix BSX series BERTScope not only helps characterize the receiver in Gen3 and Gen4 devices – it enables users to shorten the time needed to debug link training and bit error rate issues. New Tektronix BSX Series Bit Error Rate Tester Scope

As 4th generation serial protocols such as PCIe 4.0, USB3.1, and SAS4 become more complex, it has become increasingly difficult to place a receiver being tested into an appropriate state (such as a loopback state) for testing without protocol handshaking between the instrument and the device under test. With its protocol-aware functions, the BSX Series provides the tools and flexibility needed to visualize and control the handshaking and link training process for devices running up to 32 Gb/s.

“When things go wrong during receiver testing, our customers need more than a tool that will simply characterize a device. They need a tool that will pinpoint the root cause of failures, move them from complexity to confidence, and help keep projects on schedule,” said Brian Reich, general manager, Performance Oscilloscopes, Tektronix. “Receiver testing is more than just getting a bit-error rate number – it’s understanding why you are getting a particular bit-error rate value, or handshaking failure. The BSX Series delivers unique visibility into the underlying root cause of physical layer issues by capturing the exact location and timing of bit errors.”

Simplified receiver testing

Available with maximum data rates of 12.5Gb/s, 24Gb/s and 32Gb/s, the BSX Series is available with tools that automate compliance testing, making accurate and repeatable measurements easy to do for the large number of test cases required in the Gen4 standards. With built-in Tx equalization, reference clock multiplication, and interference generation, the BSX Series requires fewer cables and is significantly easier to set up and calibrate than previous offerings.

The BSX Series is the only receiver test tool that continuously stores the context (timing, bit position) of each bit error. Sophisticated error analysis tools such as pattern sensitivity and forward error correction emulation use this information to help developers understand the factors contributing to bit errors.

Pricing and availability

The BSX Series BERTScope will be available in Q2 of 2017. Pricing starts at $199,000 US MSRP

For full details, go to: Tmetrix-Tektronix

Availability and pricing

The DPHYXpress and CPHYXpress solutions are available for download now from the Tektronix website. Pricing is $10,000 US MSRP.

Hioki Launches Three Sensor Units for High Precision Current Sensors

CT9557 Features Sum Functionality for Aggregating and Measuring Large Circuits in Multi-Cable Circuits 

CT9555

CT9555

Hioki is pleased to announce the launch of three sensor units: Models CT9555, CT9556, and CT9557. Hioki Launches Three Sensor Units High Precision Current Sensors

The CT9555 is two-thirds smaller than the legacy sensor unit by volume, while the CT9556 provides RMS output capability. Meanwhile, the CT9557 features aggregate functionality to facilitate the measurement of large currents in multi-cable circuits.

ROLE OF SENSOR UNITS
Sensor units are power supplies for high-precision current sensors that also provide waveform output functionality.

Hioki’s high-precision current sensors cannot be used on their own; instead, it is necessary to supply power to drive the sensor using one of these newly launched sensor units. Furthermore, since the sensor units are able to output waveform signals from the current sensors to which they are attached, they can be used in conjunction with a data recorder, power meter, or data logger to display and analyze those waveforms.

CT9556

CT9556

PRODUCT FEATURES
CT9555
Enclosure that’s two-thirds smaller than the legacy product by volume – The CT9555 is two-thirds smaller and weighs 200g lighter than the legacy 9555-10 by volume. Its compact footprint offers increased convenience in operation and management.

CT9556
Ability to generate RMS output
The CT9556 is a sensor unit that can also generate RMS output in addition to waveforms.  Use of a current sensor and data recorder to measure AC current levels requires an expensive recorder that provides advanced functionality for converting readings to RMS values. Since the CT9556 can output a DC signal obtained by converting the AC signal waveform from the current sensor to an RMS value, even an inexpensive logger can be used to measure AC current levels. Hioki Launches Three Sensor Units High Precision Current SensorsHioki Launches Three Sensor Units High Precision Current Sensors

CT9557

CT9557

*RMS values: The strengths of AC current and voltage are not constant, but rather vary periodically with time. Consequently, the meaning of an RMS value can be expressed as follows: the RMS value expresses the strength of an AC voltage (current) as the DC voltage (current) at which a given resistance would consume the same amount of power as when the corresponding AC voltage (current) flows through it.  The voltage used to describe household electrical outlets in Japan (100 V AC) is an RMS value.

CT9557
1. A 4-channel power supply

Current measurement often requires that multiple current lines be measured at the same time. Since the CT9557 can serve as a power supply for up to four current sensors, it allows operators to build simpler, cheaper systems than are possible if using four 1-channel CT9555 units. Hioki Launches Three Sensor Units High Precision Current Sensors

 2. Aggregate function for measuring large currents in multi-cable circuits in megasolar installations
At large-scale generating facilities such as megasolar installations, extremely large currents on the order of 1000A to 3000 A are split so that they flow through two to four cables, making it impossible to measure them with a single current sensor. Typically, individual cables’ current values are measured with separate current sensors, and either the customer adds together those measured values manually or utilizes the functionality of an instrument with enough channels to accommodate the number of current sensors being used to add the values.

The CT9557 delivers the ability to add together the signal waveforms from multiple current sensors in such applications. Since the current values measured for each branch cable are added together inside the CT9557 and output as a single signal, the troublesome addition process becomes unnecessary, and instruments need only use one channel of input. One application of this aggregate functionality is to simplify measurement of leakage currents in three-phase circuits.

PRINCIPAL APPLICATIONS
* As a current sensor power supply
* To measure RMS value fluctuations in an AC current in conjunction with a logger
* To measure power in large-current lines in conjunction with a power meter

Tektronix Updates 400G PHY Layer PAM4 Transmitter Validation Solution

Latest Release Incorporates PAM4 Error Detection, Industry-Leading SNDR Measurement Capability and New FFE/DFE Equalization in One Easy to Use Solution

BEAVERTON, Ore., Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Tektronix, Inc., a leading worldwide provider of measurement solutions, today released an update to its PAM4 solution for validating 400G physical layer transmitter designs for its DPO70000SX ultra high-performance oscilloscope series. The latest release adds PAM4 error detection, industry-leading Signal to Noise and Distortion Ratio (SNDR) measurement capability, and new advanced FFE/DFE equalization capabilities into one easy to use solution. Tektronix Updates 400G PHY Layer PAM4 Transmitter Validation Solution

To keep up with demand, serial data rates are now approaching 56 Gb/s per channel. This in turn has driven various 400G standards groups such as IEEE 802.3bs and OIF-CEI to leave behind NRZ signal modulation techniques in favor of more bandwidth efficient PAM4 modulation. With many of the standards still evolving, designers working on 400G designs are struggling with the complexity of PAM4 transmitter measurements. This latest PAM4 release reduces complexity by pulling together all PAM4 measurement capabilities into a single application.

“Designers working on 25 Gb/s and 50 Gb/s products face an uphill battle as they transition from NRZ to PAM4,” said Brian Reich, general manager, Performance Oscilloscopes, Tektronix. “Our latest PAM4 solution brings an extensive list of PAM4 measurement capabilities into a single user experience that is easy to operate. And because of the superior signal acquisition capabilities of the DPO70000SX platform, we are delivering the best margin possible for characterizing PAM4 components and systems.”

Highlights of the new PAM4 solution, which tracks to the latest revisions of the IEEE and OIF-CEI standards include:

Error Detection and Visualization – Repeating symbol patterns are automatically recognized, so that symbol error rate (SER) and bit error rate (BER) values are accumulated and reported.  An Error Navigator allows individual symbol errors to be viewed in the acquired waveform, together with contextual information.

Industry-Leading SNDR Measurement Capability – Support for the key new SNDR measurement is included in this release. Delivering results up to 34 dB, the DPO70000SX ATI-based oscilloscopes deliver the highest fidelity SNDR measurement capability in the industry.

Equalization Support — This release incorporates the advanced Feed Forward Equalization (FFE) and Decision Feedback Equalization (DFE) signal conditioning requirements specified in latest IEEE 802.3bs 400G specification.

The PAM4 solution takes advantage of the unique Asynchronous Time Interleaved (ATI) technology found in DPO70000SX 70 and 50 GHz oscilloscopes to deliver unprecedented low noise and measurement accuracy. Traditional instruments using synchronous time interleaved architectures have too much noise or insufficient bandwidth to allow effective noise and jitter decomposition of complex electrical and optical signals. The ATI acquired signal along with the new PAM4 solution provides a level of precision and usability never offered together in a real-time oscilloscope. Tektronix Updates 400G PHY Layer PAM4 Transmitter Validation Solution
