Analyser now support USB3.1 Gen2 receiver standards
Fixed transmission path loss, jitter, equipment compatibility and signal integrity assurance are driving the need for testers with high-quality reference test signals, says Anritsu. They also need to communicate with multiple interfaces. The company’s MP1800A signal quality analyser now supports the newest USB3.1 Gen2 receiver test standards. The USB3.1 receiver test solution uses the G0373A adapter and MX183000A high-speed serial data test software to support both USB3.1 Gen1 (5Gbit/s) and Gen2 (10Gbit/s) receiver jitter tolerance tests.
The signal quality analyser MP1800A is a plug-in modular bit error rate tester (BERT) supporting measurement of multi-channel wideband interfaces up to 32Gbit/s. Additionally, high-reproducibility USB3.1 Gen2 receiver tests are implemented using optimised, high-quality output waveforms to measure high-speed interfaces.
Combining the G0373A and MP1800A supports generation of signals required by USB3.1 receiver tests as well as BER measurements, says the company. The MX183000A software controls the combined measurement system to set and control the receiver test signals and display the BER measurement results. The combination of the MP1800A, G0373A, and MX183000A offers an all-in-one USB3.1 receiver test, while automated measurement, using the Granite River Labs automation software, helps lighten test workloads.
