N1091CKCA IEEE 802.3ck Measurement and Debug Application
The current web page context is a data sheet for the N1091CKCA IEEE 802.3ck Measurement and Debug Application, which is a software solution for characterizing IEEE 100/200/400 Gb/s Electrical TX Designs using N1000A DCA-X Wide-Bandwidth Oscilloscopes. The software automates 53 Gbaud PAM4 transmitter test measurements, saves time and money, helps debug devices using custom configurations, automates optimization of CTLE + DFE equalizer settings, and generates HTML reports that summarize device performance. The software covers PAM4 transmitter measurements outlined in IEEE 802.3ck specifications for chip-to-chip, chip-to-module, backplane, and shielded balanced copper cabling interfaces.
The software can be licensed using four different methods: node-locked, transportable, USB portable, or floating. Each license type can be perpetual or subscription-based, with different terms and support options. The software requires that the N1010100A R&D Package be licensed on the platform. The software can also be purchased as part of a subscription-based Compliance Test Software Suite that bundles multiple IEEE Compliance Test Software Applications under a model number.
The software can run on different hardware configurations, depending on the user's test needs and budget. The recommended configuration is the N1000A DCA-X Mainframe + N1060A “MegaModule”, which offers high accuracy, easy setup, and integrated solution. Alternatively, the user can choose the N1000A DCA-X Mainframe with DCA Module + External Clock Recovery, which offers high flexibility, scalability, and high fidelity. For return loss measurements, the software can control an N1055A TDR module or a vector network analyzer (PNA) to perform measurements automatically.
