Tektronix offers comprehensive, integrated tool sets for validating the physical layer of IEEE 802.3 Ethernet devices, and for developing and debugging Ethernet-based systems from 10BASE-T up to 40/100GB.
Tekronix also provides advance compliance and Debug tools for other Datacomm standards like 10BASE-T, 10BASE-Te, 100BASE-Tx, 1000BASE-T, BroadR-Reach, 10GBASE-T, 10GBASE-KR, SFP+ (SFF 8431), QSFP+ (SFF-8634), Fiber Channel FC-16G (FC-PI-5) and CEI-28G-VSR.
Timing jitter is the unwelcome companion of all electrical systems that use voltage transitions to represent timing information. This paper focuses primarily on jitter in electrical systems.
This application note discusses different ways that information from an eye diagram can be sliced to gain more insight. It also discusses some basic ways that transmitters, channels, and receivers are tested.
Ethernet testing can be easy with the Tektronix TDSET3 Ethernet Compliance Test Package an automated test system. TDSET3 provides compliance testing for 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX and Giga-bit Ethernet devices.
