 Compact USB 3.0 test solution from Agilent for transmitter and receiver test

Agilent has announced the enhancement of its SuperSpeed USB 3.0 test solution portfolio with new test fixtures and support automated compliance tests and characterization with the new J-BERT N4903B.

Agilent's USB 3.0 test solution for transmitter and receiver test, now comprised of a DSA91304A Infiniium oscilloscope, a USB 3.0 test fixture, a pattern checker and pattern generator based on the J-BERT N4903B high-performance serial BERT, and the N5990A test automation software platform from BitifEye Digital Test Solutions. J-BERT's new internal SJ and SSC generation eliminates the need for external signal and noise generators used in the previous test setup.

"This live demo of the compact USB 3.0 transmitter and receiver test setup continues Agilent's phased introduction of its USB solution portfolio," said Jim Choate, USB program manager with Agilent's Digital Test Division. "With our first solution, introduced earlier this year, we successfully supported early adopters. With this new, compact setup, we are facilitating widespread adoption of USB 3.0 compliance testing."

"By supporting J-BERT N4903B High performance Serial BERT, the test automation software N5990A provides even more value to customers," said Alexander Schmitt, co-founder of the Agilent partner company BitifEye. "With J-BERT B's built-in jitter sources, system calibration is significantly reduced. This saves customers time and enhances productivity. With J-BERT B and N5990A, test parameters such as the random or sinusoidal jitter can be modified on the fly over a wide range, without the need for calculating and loading synthesized waveforms. This is especially important for characterization and troubleshooting."
