Teledyne LeCroy Announces Support for SuperSpeed USB 10 Gbps (USB 3.1) Receiver Testing

DesignCon, Santa Clara, CA, Jan 28 2014 - Teledyne LeCroy, the worldwide leader in high speed I/O analysis and protocol test solutions, announces PeRT3 Phoenix Plus, the first protocol aware receiver test solution for Superspeed USB 10Gbps (USB3.1). At 10Gbps, USB3.1 uses a more efficient data encoding scheme and delivers more than twice the effective data rate of USB3.0, presenting new challenges in receiver testing. The new Teledyne LeCroy PeRT3 Phoenix Plus simplifies these challenges.

PeRT3 Phoenix Plus supports all the jitter and equalization generation required at 10Gbps, as well as the protocol level handshake that is critical to put the device under test into proper test modes, and under optimal equalization conditions. PeRT3 Phoenix Plus also offers true SKP symbol injections and SKP filtering during BER testing as well as 128b/132b pattern generation and detection.

Phoenix Plus is the newest addition to the PeRT3 Phoenix System that is designed to meet the test needs of engineers working with serial data transceivers and other high-speed serial data communication systems. In many new generations of high speed serial I/O standards, the protocol layer optimizes physical layer properties, such as optimizing equalization settings for accurate signal transmission to the receiver through long and noisy transmission mediums. This requires a PeRT3, a new class of instrumentation that can perform standard receiver tests and also communicate to the transmitter in protocol language. PeRT3 combines all the physical layer capabilities of the stress BERT system with protocol handshake and training capabilities.
