Tektronix expands serial bus test support of DPO70000SX oscilloscopes

May 26, 2016
Tektronix says technicians can now use its DPO70000SX Series oscilloscopes to support work using serial bus standards such as USB3.1, Thunderbolt over USB Type-C, PCIe Gen4, and DDR4. The new capabilities should prove particularly useful in design work targeted at emerging cloud computing and mobile applications.

Tektronix says technicians can now use its DPO70000SX Series oscilloscopes to support work using serial bus standards such as USB3.1, Thunderbolt over USB Type-C, PCIe Gen4, and DDR4. The new capabilities should prove particularly useful in design work targeted at emerging cloud computing and mobile applications.

The enhancement is part of an overall upgrade that will enable the DPO70000SX family to leverage more than 50 solutions for PHY layer compliance testing, characterization, and debugging in enterprise, data communications, mobile, and display applications. The portfolio, which covers what Tektronix describes as "3rd and 4th generation standards," support such features as automated test set-up and execution, built-in reporting options, and deep analysis, among others.

"As enterprise computing moves from third generation to fourth generation serial standards, our customers need an oscilloscope with the accuracy, support, and scalability to manage the transition seamlessly," said Brian Reich, general manager, Performance Oscilloscopes, at Tektronix. "Starting with 23- or 33-GHz models, the DPO70000SX's scalable architecture provides 'room to grow' so engineers can preserve their test investment when the time comes to test next-generation standards that need bandwidth at 50 GHz and beyond."

The new options will become available at the end of the month.
