Signal Quality Analyzer supports high-speed PCIe Receiver Tests

Anritsu MP1900A SQA15 October 2020 – Anritsu announced strengthened functions for its Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A PCI Express receiver tests. These strengthened functions upgrade the waveform performance of the PAM4 PPG MU196020A to the latest high-speed, large-capacity PCI Express standards for PCIe receiver tests. As a result, customers planning and developing PCIe Gen 6 (PAM4 32 Gbaud) products for data centers and other applications now have an all-in-one measuring instrument covering future PCIe Gen 6 upgrades as well as current PCIe 3.0/4.0/5.0 receiver tests.

Fifth-generation (5G) communications network systems meeting enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Ultra-Reliable and Low Latency Communications (URLLC), and massive Machine Type Communication (mMTC) requirements are currently being tested. These technologies are increasing the need for data centers to process large data volumes at high speeds. While data centers are planning the introduction and compliance testing of PCIe 5.0 interfaces for their transmission equipment, servers, storage, etc., by late 2020, PCI-SIG has already started planning and defining the future next-generation PCIe 6.0 standard using PAM4 32-Gbaud technology.

Anritsu is offering this all-in-one test solution covering both future PCIe 6.0 evaluations and current PCIe 5.0 compliance tests to help customers reduce product times to market.

New Product Outline

The Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A series are multichannel bit error rate (BER) measuring instruments required for designing and inspecting next-generation network interfaces, such as 400 and 800GbE, as well as high-speed bus interfaces, such as PCI Express 4.0/5.0, USB3.2/4, Thunderbolt, etc.

These added functions support early-stage development of PAM4 PCIe 6.0 equipment using the PAM4 PPG MU196020A with high-quality data output performance. Moreover, using these functions with the existing SI ED MU195040A PCI solution supports PCIe 3.0/4.0/5.0 compliance tests as an all-in-one solution for PAM4 performance evaluations and compliance tests.
