Automotive SerDes Receiver Testing

As communication demands increase, standardized in-vehicle communication technologies such as automotive SerDes and automotive Ethernet become crucial. Testing the components, transceivers, and interconnects within these networks fosters vendor interoperability and ensures that complex, safety-critical systems function according to their design goals. Learn how the M8195A AWG enables automotive SerDes testing for MIPI A-PHY receiver rest.

Power Amplifier Performance Verification Essentials

Highlights

As devices and interfaces become faster and more complex, the Keysight M8195A arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) provides the versatility needed to create signals for digital applications, optical and electrical communication, advanced research, wideband radar, and satcom.

In addition to 25 GHz bandwidth, 8-bit vertical resolution, and up to 4 channels in a 1-slot AXIe module, the M8195A offers real-time signal and impairment generation, as well as advanced 3-level sequencing for even longer signal scenarios. Enhance your test setup with real-time mode, built-in frequency and phase response calibration, sequencing, and deep memory.

  • generate two independent I/Q baseband signals (dual polarization = 4 channels) at up to 32 GBaud and beyond
  • produce NRZ, PAM4, PAM8, DMT, etc. signals at up to 32 GBaud
  • support protocols such as HDMI™, C-PHY™ and D-PHY™
  • embed / de-embed channels, add jitter, ISI, noise, and other distortions
  • supply any mathematically defined arbitrary waveforms, ultra-short yet precise pulses, and extremely wideband chirps
  • enable up to 1 Vpp(se) or 2 Vpp(diff) output amplitude
  • provide wideband RF signals with an instantaneous bandwidth of DC to 25 GHz for aerospace and defense, or communication applications
  • extend memory capabilities with 16 GSa to generate PRBS7, PRBS10, PRBS11, PRBS15 up to PRBS31
