Ease Complex Waveform Generation With Software

Waveform Generation

While the oscilloscope is undoubtedly the workhorse for high-speed wireline compliance testing, the role of the arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) has taken on new importance due to ever-increasing signal complexity. Increased wireline complexity is evident in many applications, including 100 Gbaud PAM4 multilevel and multichannel digital signals in high-speed backplane connections, coherent optical applications in the data room, and high-speed interface compliance testing for MIPI, HDMI, USB4, PCIe 5.0, 400G, and others.

Software templates and automation of basic equipment programming have helped reduce waveform generation and ease of use challenges. For example, the software can automate the setups of BERT / AWG / oscilloscope test systems for USB4 Rx compliance and other wireline buses, including PCIe and HDMI.
