Key Features & Specifications

Measure S-Parameters quickly and accurately:

  • Complete Single-Ended and Differential S-Parameters
  • Accurately measure Return Loss, Insertion Loss (Attenuation), Near-End Cross Talk (NEXT), Far-End Cross Talk (FEXT), Phase, and Group Delay
  • True SOLT TDR calibration removes unwanted effects from cables and fixtures, improves measurement accuracy
  • Export results in Touchstone or .txt format; if desired, use the file to de-embed/embed the DUT using InfiniiSim-DCA

Use for troubleshooting and compliance measurements in a variety of applications:

  • USB
  • PCI Express
  • Custom electrical designs and more

Easy-to-use for novices, advanced features for experts:

  • Visual guides - helps occasional users make accurate measurements without slowing down power users
  • One button measurements - switch between time domain (impedance) and frequency domain (S-Parameter) quickly and easily

Accurate TDR/TDT Measurements:

  • True SOLT TDR calibration – removes unwanted effects from cables and fixtures
  • Adjustable effective rise time – measure impedance using edge speeds that match your design


Complete Channel Verification – Done Simply

86100D-202 Enhanced Impedance and S-Parameter Software compliments 86100D TDR/TDT mode and provides a fully integrated, real-time, and calibrated TDR and S-Parameter measurement solution.

TDR/TDT and S-Parameters are used for a variety of reasons:

  • Signal Integrity (SI) engineering: Shorten design cycles - accurately characterize single-ended and differential impedances in both the time and frequency domain
  • Compliance measurements – ensure your device meets specifications
  • Process control: Maintain consistent quality in printed circuit board (PCB) and passive component manufacturing
  • Fault location: Identify the location of shorts, opens, or other discontinuities to repair the DUT or gain insights for improvements

TDR/TDT and S-Parameter measurements are easy to setup and perform using the intuitive user interface on the 86100D DCA-X.

Simultaneous viewing of single-ended, mixed mode and differential S-Parameters

The user can enable all TDR steps within a single TDR module, and the DCA-X software will control the TDR steps to display whatever frequency domain responses are requested by the user. This enables simultaneous displays of single-ended, mixed-mode and differential frequency domain responses, as shown below.
