Trigger and Translate Serial Data Waveforms into Character and Protocol Views
Options PTH/PTU/STU provide trigger and decoding features for greater insight when analyzing 8b/10b encoded serial data streams. It enables users to simultaneously view waveform, character, and low-level protocol activity, simplifying validation of link-level communications and isolation of data-dependent faults.
Engineers implementing serial data interfaces are initially faced with debugging and validating designs for compliance with physical-layer specifications. At this stage, signal integrity and timing stability are key issues. Much of this validation and debug is done using repeating test patterns in conjunction with analysis tools such as DPOJET Jitter and Eye Analysis Software.
- DSA70000B models and DPO70000B Option PTH models only.
- Max supported rates for Option PTU/STU is 5.0 Gb/s and for Option PTH is 3.125 Gb/s.
