Ethernet provides the common technology behind mobile towers, social media, IoT, wearables, connected cars, and many other new technologies. However, the transmission medium varies with the speed of transmission and application requirements: optical for long-distance and electrical for short-distance. Tektronix offers comprehensive, integrated toolsets for validating the physical layer of IEEE 802.3 Ethernet devices, and for developing and debugging Ethernet-based systems in the hyper-scale datacenter, automotive, enterprise, and consumer ecosystems.
The demand for greater data throughput from data centers is growing and the Ethernet specification is growing alongside it. Devices are reaching 100Gbit per lane, with next-generation 200Gbit devices on the horizon, leading to increased complexity in compliance testing. Tektronix provides world-class solutions to address the demand for high-speed compliance testing and verification.
Today’s vehicles are generating vast amounts of data to implement Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), In-vehicle infotainment, etc. These technologies require fast communication and are driving architectural changes in in-vehicle networks. These networks need to be measured, verified for compliance, and debugged.
Ethernet transmitter test solutions automate testing to save significant time and improve repeatability. Tektronix oscilloscope-based software uses the test procedures and test limits specified in industry standards. Automation features reduce time spent on test set-up and data collection.
Together with Quantifi Photonics Ltd., we offer a high-performing and flexible Optical Modulation Analyzer (OMA) system to meet current and future requirements. The market-leading performance of Quantifi Photonics’ IQRX coherent receiver and the scalable architecture of Tektronix performance oscilloscopes offer an excellent ROI.
