Tektronix PCIe 6.0 Base Rx test solution provides confidence that designs are thoroughly tested at the required bit error rate (BER) target. The intuitive step-by-step tools provide link training routines for the Anritsu MP1900A BERT to ensure the receiver is tested accurately. Test solution includes the fastest 64 GT/s (PAM4) Rx calibration in the industry. Novel algorithms efficiently address the new challenge of calibrating the transmitter’s additional pre-cursor added to the 6.0 Base specification.

The Tektronix PAMJET DSP tool provides critical 64 GT/s jitter and noise measurements with advanced instrument noise compensation. This fully automated solution leverages the first-to-market 6.0 Base Tx solution techniques and enhances the capabilities to address Receiver challenges at the latest data rate introduced by the PCI Special Interest Group (PCI-SIG).

The TekRxTest automation software provides a single control panel with the power to manage a Tektronix oscilloscope and Anritsu BERT during receiver calibration. This intuitive software wizard guides users through short- and long-channel calibration steps with ease, resulting in an accurate and repeatable calibration at 64 GT/s.
