Anritsu Corporation Signal Quality Analyzer-R Series MP1900A has been approved as a USB 3.2 Electrical Compliance Test instrument by the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF).
Transferring high-resolution, large streaming-video data at faster speeds, USB data transmission speeds are advancing to 10 and 20Gbit/s per lane (USB 3.2 and USB4, respectively). The company has been supporting USB 3.2 and Thunderbolt3 compliance tests with its high-speed 32Gbit/s BERT MP1800A series, but the all-in-one 32G/116Gbit/s BERT MP1900A series including functions for adding jitter, noise and ISI, as well as clock recovery and Link Training functions needed for Rx tests of high-speed interfaces in one unit, not only simplifies system setup and measurement but also assists to cut development time.
The USB-IF-approved device is a high-performance bit error tester supporting multiple channels with industry best-of-class output waveform quality, high input sensitivity, and jitter and noise-generation sources. Employing the all-in-one device with functions for the Electrical Compliance Test supports both automated test-signal calibration and measurement. Furthermore, it has built-in functions for easy, high-reproducibility analysis of multiple signal-quality issues accompanying high-speed transmission path losses. As a result, the device helps reduce design, testing, and certification approval times while improving product quality.
