The Agilent Technologies U7236A 10GBASE-T Ethernet electrical conformance application for Infiniium oscilloscopes provides you with a fast and accurate way to verify and debug your 10GBASE-T Ethernet designs. The 10GBASE-T Ethernet electrical test software allows you to automatically execute 10GBASE-T Ethernet physical-layer (PHY) electrical tests, and it displays the results in a flexible report format. In addition to the measurement data, the report provides a margin analysis that shows how closely your device passed or failed each test.
The U7236A takes care of the tedious task of instrument control and configures the oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer, or vector network analyzer as needed by each 10GBASE-T test to provide rapid, accurate, and repeatable test execution.
- Complete coverage of the 10GBASE-T transmitter electrical specifications as described in section 55.5.3 of IEEE 802.3an-2006.
- Accurate return loss testing performed with a supported Agilent vector network analyzer
- Automated measurement setup and programming of oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer and vector network analyzer for increased accuracy, time-savings and repeatability.
- Automated test engine with extremely user-friendly interface, allowing user to setup instruments, select and configure tests to be run, resulting in a comprehensive report of test results with margin analysis.
- Infiniium oscilloscope with ≥ 2 GHz of bandwidth
