Tektronix launches PCIe 6.0 PAM4 base transmitter measurement software for its DPO70000SX series of real-time oscilloscopes. The PCIe 6.0 standard transitions to PAM4 signaling to achieve data transfer rates of 64 GT/s, leveraging lightweight forward error correction while maintaining low latency.
Focusing on serving high-performance and data-intensive markets, the transmitter validation analysis tools support measurements uniquely developed for PCIe 6.0, including signal to noise distortion ratio (SNDR), transmitter linearity (RLM), uncorrelated jitter, and pulse width jitter. Enhanced PAM4 DSP capabilities are provided with the Tektronix PAMJET application, and instrument noise compensation techniques are tailored to individual measurements to achieve the most accurate results.
Silicon IP provider Alphawave collaborated with Tektronix for early validation of PCIe 6.0 physical layer designs. “Tektronix was deeply involved in defining the PCIe 64-GT/s measurement methodologies, which enabled our engineers to increase their confidence in meeting this challenging new standard prior to release,” said Clint Walker, Vice President of Marketing at Alphawave.
Tektronix’ Marketing Director of Wired Solutions Swapnil Mane added, “Our PCIe 6.0 standard test and debug solution easily integrates into the engineers’ workflow for test and debug. With the complexity of PAM4 signaling, our analysis tools make it easier to test their design and ensure it meets the new 6.0 standard requirement with a high degree of confidence.”
The PCIe 6.0 standard solution is now available worldwide for use with DPO70000SX real-time oscilloscopes with bandwidths of 50 GHz and above.
