  • Performs nearly 140 tests
  • Key measurement includes 120 edge Output Jitter (Jnu, JRMS, EOJ), SNDR & Eye-opening (EH, EW, VEC)

Flexible and extensible

  • Operates on an a UXR oscilloscope
  • Automatic HTML report generation
  • Test all or selected parameters to compliance limits or custom limits


  • UXR product series operating at and above 50GHz: UXR0502A, UXR0504A, UXR0592A, UXR0592AP, UXR0594A, UXR0594AP, UXR0702A , UXR0702AP , UXR0704AP , UXR0802A, UXR0804A , UXR1002A , UXR1004A ,UXR1102A , UXR1104A 

The Keysight D90103CKC TX test application can be used with the UXR High-Bandwidth oscilloscopes to quickly and accurately perform electrical (physical layer) conformance measurements in accordance to:

  • IEEE 802.3ck 100Gb/s, 200 Gb/s and 400 Gb/s Operation
    • 100GAUI-1, 200GAUI-2 and 400GAUI-4 Chip-to-Chip (C2C) TX characteristics
    • 100GAUI-1, 200GAUI-2 and 400GAUI-4 Chip-to-Module (C2M) host/module output characteristics
    • Transmitter characteristics, 100GBASE-CR1, 200GBASE-CR-2, and 400GBASE-CR4
    • Transmitter characteristics, 100GBASE-KR1, 200GBASE-KR-2, and 400GBASE-KR4

The D90103CKC application simplifies complex 106Gbps IEEE transmitter physical layer measurements:

  • Performs automated adaptive Reference Receiver auto-tune operations.
  • Saves time in understanding details of standards
  • Reduces the time it takes to characterize your PAM4 design from hours to minutes
  • Helps debug your device using custom configurations
  • Allows you to quickly generate HTML reports that summarize the performance of your device

Key measurements include:

  • Jitter Measurements including Jnu, JRMS, and EOJ on “12-edges” of a PRBS13Q
  • Output Waveform measurements including Steady-State Voltage (Vf), Linear Fit Pulse Peak and Signal-to-Noise-and-Distortion (SNDR)
  • Transition Time
  • Eye Width, Eye Height & Vertical Eye Closure
  • Effective Return Loss

For a comprehensive and up-to-date list of specific tests covered by the application, download and install the D90103CKC free time trial onto a UXR instrument. No license (or hardware) is required to run the software application in “Demo Mode”.
