Physical Layer Compliance Testing for 1000BASE-T Ethernet

1000BASE-T Ethernet Compliance Test

Ethernet compliance testing requires precise test setups and evaluation against limits dictated by IEEE 802.3 standards.  Automated testing software for oscilloscopes greatly simplifies and speeds testing.  This application note summarizes key tests specifically for the 1000BASE-T physical layer including peak, droop, template tests, distortion, common mode voltage, and return loss tests. It recommends equipment, describes test setups, and outlines testing steps using test automation software for testing compliance with gigabit Ethernet standards.
