SerialXpress® Arbitrary Waveform Generator Software

Serial Data Signal and Impairment Generation Tool for Arbitrary Waveform Generators.

SerialXpress combined with the AWG5000 or AWG7000 Series arbitrary waveform generator is the world's only one-box receiver test solution.

High speed serial data signals are becoming more and more complex. SerialXpress® together with the AWG simplifies the signal creation and jitter simulations to reduce overall development and test time. The software enables the creation of the EXACT waveforms required for thorough and repeatable design validation, margin/characterization and conformance testing. SerialXpress' easy to use graphical user interface allows for a combination of test signals and various impairments including Inter Symbol Interferences (ISI), Duty Cycle Distortion (DCD), Spread Spectrum Clocking (SSC), Pre-emphasis and noise.

Features

Benefits

FlexibilityJitter generation has become so flexible that the user now has the freedom to try various permutations and combinations of Jitter parameters like Pj, Rj, ISI, Noise, etc.
Replicate ScenariosTest signals are digitally synthesized and all AWGsetups can be recalled and the scenarios can be replicated on any other AWG within seconds.
Ease of UseSerialXpress' easy to use graphical user interface allows for a combination of test signals and various impairments including Inter Symbol Interferences (ISI), Duty Cycle Distortion (DCD), Spread Spectrum Clocking (SSC), Pre-emphasis and noise, thus reducing setup and test time.
Simple Test Set-up, One-box test solutionThe generation of Pre/De-emphasis or arbitrary impairments is a purely numerical process and so is virtually unlimited in the types of signal generation that can be achieved. It also eliminates the need for equipments like power combiners, power dividers and their associated complexities.
Channel Emulation Through S-parameter FilterReduce your overall test and development time by emulating different scenarios. Touchstone files can easily be inserted to simulate the exact behavior of cable emulators, which can be again controlled and modified by adding Jitter and other parameters. You can also tweak the imported touchstone file data to adjust the ISI to see how the receiver responds to those variations. The effect of the channel can also be de-embedded by selecting the Inverse filtering option. Closed EYE can be opened up by adding right amount of pre-emphasis or by varying the Rise Time.
ISI Direct Dial-inISI can be directly dialed-in at ease. It's no longer necessary to use FR4 traces which are inflexible and need frequent calibration when switching from one to another.
Supports a Wide Variety of StandardsWhen teamed with the appropriate Tektronix arbitrary waveform generator (AWG), SerialXpress® software can cater to any emerging standard from 500 Kbps to 8 Gbps

Advantages of Real-time Spectrum Analyzers in High Energy Physics Applications

In High Energy Physics (HEP) applications, the fundamental challenges facing operators and researchers are sustained maximum beam power and consistent beam stability in particle accelerators.  To accomplish these objectives, operators need to be able to collect information on the spectral behavior of particle beams at the time of beam ramp up as well as during various experiments.
