Oscilloscope manufacturer Tektronix has announced a new Serial Data Link Analysis Visualizer software package (SDLA Visualizer) for Tektronix performance oscilloscopes, including the DPO/DSA/MSO70000 Series.
Designers working on next-generation serial standards can use SDLA Visualizer to specify their link, de-embed any components from the measurement path, simulate virtual link components, apply equalisation and take measurements at multiple points on the transmission line in a serial data system, module or chipset.
For designers doing physical layer characterisation, debug, and compliance of computer, communications, and memory high speed buses, SDLA Visualizer enables them to confidently bridge the gap between modelling behaviour and actual signal integrity performance.
This in turn significantly reduces design cycle time and speeds up decision making on critical design projects.
