It significantly reduces test time to perform each test and provides regression testing across different modes along with a single printable report.

BERTScope PCIe Rx Test Application Software - V3.1.1
December 17, 2019

PCIe 3.0 and 4.0 Rx Test solution:BERTScope PCIe Rx test solution is based upon the procedure described in the PCI-SIG Compliance Test Specification (CTS) document. Receiver testing first involves calibrating the set-up as described in the CTS and then proceeding with various tests as laid down in the specification.These tests are accomplished by connecting the BERT pattern generator transmitter to the DUT receiver using fixtures and cables which are specified by PCI-SIG. The compliance waveform requirements as per the specification are met by the Tektronix BERT scope which is capable of producing PCIe 3.0 and 4.0 test patterns along with random jitter, sinusoidal jitter, signal amplitude, DMSI and CMI (Specific to Gen 4). Output of the DUT is transmitted back to the error detector in the BERT receiver to detect errors which can be assumed to have come from the forward path.

Tektronix Receiver Test Application Software for USB3.1 Gen1 and Gen2 - V7.0.3
December 17, 2019

USB 3.1 Gen1 and Gen2: Tektronix USB Rx test solution is based upon the procedure described in the USB-IF Compliance Test Specification (CTS). Receiver testing first involves calibrating the set-up as described in the CTS and then proceeding with various tests as laid down in the specification.These tests are accomplished by connecting the BERT pattern generator transmitter to the DUT receiver using fixtures and cables which are specified by USB-IF. The compliance waveform requirements as per specification are met by the Tektronix BERT scope which is capable of producing USB Gen1 and Gen2 test patterns along with random jitter, sinusoidal jitter, signal amplitude, Deemphasis and Preshoot(Gen2 only). Output of the DUT is transmitted back to the error detector through Clock Recovery Unit(CRU) in the BERT receiver to detect errors which can be assumed to have come from the forward path (as a result of the DUT experiencing a bad bit-decision).

HDMI 2.1 FRL TX/RX
December 15, 2019

The TekExpress FRL compliance application gives you the tools to easily run the High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) tests under the HDMI compliance test specification 2.1. With this application you can run 9 Source and 5 Sink measurement tests.

RSA Application Programming Interface – API for 64-Bit Linux – CANDIDATE V0.13.220.16
December 12, 2019

The RSA API is a Linux C/C++ Shared Objects that provides direct access to RSA300/500/600 devices. It enables full control of the RSA and provides several forms of data and measurements to support custom applications independent of SignalVu-PC. Included is the API Shared Objects for use on 64-bit Linux, tested on CentOS 7, Debian 10, and Ubuntu 18.04 systems.
