Tektronix rolls Multi-gigabit automotive Ethernet test solution
The TekExpress Multi-Gigabit Automotive Ethernet Compliance Test Solution, says the company, allows for quick, accurate, and reliable validation and debugging for multi-gigabit Ethernet chipsets and electronic control units (ECUs) to meet Physical Media Attachment (PMA) transmitter measurement requirements for up to 10 Gb/s. The fully automated compliance test solution is fitting with the current version of the IEEE 802.3ch MultiGBASE-T1 specification.
“The Tektronix TekExpress Multi-Gigabit Automotive Ethernet Compliance Test Solution fulfills the need for reliable, easy-to-use and rapid multi-gigabit automotive Ethernet compliance and test support,” says Raajit Lall, General Manager of Market Solutions. “Multi-gigabit Ethernet uses PAM4 modulation to achieve high data rates and reliability, pushing the boundaries of signal integrity and requiring higher performance measurements for compliance, debugging and validation.”
“Debug tools like DPOJET and PAM4 Analysis also allow for quick identification of the root cause of a failure, saving time and effort,” says Lall. “Tektronix continues to actively participate in the Open Alliance, using our engineering expertise to drive the development of in-vehicle network test specifications and methodologies to ensure reliable, cost-effective testing.”
The new offering is part of the company’s family of automated compliance solutions for automotive Ethernet, working seamlessly with Tektronix oscilloscopes, and enhances its existing in-vehicle network solution offering of 10BASE-T1S, 100-BASE-T1, and 1000BASE-T1 compliance testing applications for automotive Ethernet standards. And, says the company, because this new application uses the TekExpress automation framework, engineers do not have to learn a new software interface.
The Tektronix IEEE 802.3ch Multi-Gigabit Ethernet automated compliance application is now available globally for 10G/5G/2.5GBASE-T1 automotive Ethernet Physical Media Attachment (PMA) transmitter compliance testing on DPO70000 SX/DX Series oscilloscopes. Product pricing begins at $14,500.
