How a New Method for PCI Express® Physical Layer Testing Offers Quick Insight into Transmitter Link Health

Download Sponsored By : Tektronix

Traditionally, transmitter (Tx) testing requires the use of an oscilloscope to make eye height and eye width measurements of a transmitted signal from a device under test (DUT) in order to assess signal quality. As a consistently specified tool for validation and compliance systems, oscilloscopes are heavily used in development to determine the readiness of a DUT to undergo compliance certification for many high speed I/O (HSIO) standards. While critical for development and debug, there has been a growing need for other equipment that can reduce the time required by oscilloscopes to gather insights into Tx link health. For this reason, Tektronix has introduced the TMT4 Margin Tester.

In this application note you will find six ways in which the new TMT4 Margin Tester addressed PCI Express Gen 3 and Gen 4 device test needs with its ability to offer faster, easier, and more cost-effective link health evaluation.
