Test Solutions Address 400G PAM4 Migrations

Tektronix showcases what it is calling the industry’s most comprehensive set of 400G PAM4 test solutions at the OFC optical networking and communications conference and exhibition March 11-15. “The race is on to deliver fully production-ready 400G solutions to datacenters by the end of this year, if not sooner, to meet urgent global demand for more bandwidth and capacity,” said Sarah Boen, general manager, Wired Communications, Tektronix. “As we will be demonstrating at OFC, Tektronix is leading the way with the test solutions that component and system designers and manufacturers need to meet this accelerated time table and successfully compete in the marketplace.”

 

Tektronix will solve real-world problems including:

EMBEDDED TECHNOLOGIES EXPO & CONFERENCE

The inaugural event will take place June 25-27 in San Jose, CA!

Embedded Technologies Expo & Conference (ETC), in the largest embedded and IoT market in North America, is the ONLY event focused on what is most important to designers and implementers – education and training. Attendees will experience over 100 hours of unparalleled education and training covering embedded systems, IoT, connectivity, edge computing, AI, machine learning, and more. Co-located with Sensors Expo & Conference, attendees will have the opportunity to see hundreds of leading exhibitors and network with thousands of industry peers and innovators.
  • 400G PAM4 from R&D to production – In this station, OFC attendees will learn how Tektronix solutions based on DPO70000SX real-time and DSA8300 equivalent time oscilloscopes work together to enable a seamless transition from design to manufacturing. 
  • Improving yield with higher optical sensitivity – Here, visitors can see how more margin and higher yields are made possible with Tektronix solutions that offer the industry’s lowest noise and highest sensitivity. They will also see comprehensive characterization – TDECQ accuracy and visualization and powerful analysis features – for 400G 28/56GBd PAM4 measurements.
  • 400G PAM4 debug and validation – The move to PAM4 modulation presents validation and debug challenges that a real-time oscilloscope-based solution is uniquely equipped to solve. Tektronix will showcase the advanced equalization and digital clock recovery, effective error rate analysis, and offline analysis now available for its DPO70000SX real-time oscilloscope.
  • 70GHz Multi-Channel End-to-End Characterization – The Tektronix coherent optical analysis solution enables simultaneous signal capture and analysis, accurate and low-cost testing and optimum transmitter tuning for improved performance and increased yield.
