Tektronix, Inc. Key Developments

Tektronix Enhances Suite of PCI Expres Test Solutions

Tektronix announced a series of enhancements to its suite of PCI Express, or PCIe, test solutions including support for the 16 GT/s data rate and the automated transmitter and receiver test solutions supporting the PCIe 4.0 architecture. With the faster data rates for PCIe 4.0 technology come new test challenges such as major increases in channel loss, tightening of the total jitter budget and more complex link training and timing requirements. As design margins shrink, accurate and standard-specific measurement solutions play a vital role in debug, design verification and interoperability testing. All of these needs are fully met by the latest Tektronix test solutions for PCIe 4.0 and 3.0 in conjunction with DPO70000SX high performance oscilloscopes. Option PCE4 for Tektronix DPO/DPS70000SX and DPO/MSO70000DX high performance oscilloscopes provides new transmitter (Tx) measurements specific to the new PCIe 4.0 Base Specification including the 100 MHz reference clock, with its picosecond jitter requirements, used in all four generations of PCI Express: 2.5, 5.0, 8.0 and 16.0 GT/s. Other enhancements include support for the new U.2 form factor (formerly called SFF-8639) and additional optimizations to reduce the overall test time by about 30 percent. These same capabilities are also available as enhancements for Option PCE3, Tektronix' solution for PCI Express 3.0 technology. Tektronix now offers support for PCIe 4.0 and PCIe 3.1a Base Specification receiver testing. The solutions automate Tektronix BERTScope bit error rate testers and Tektronix high performance real-time oscilloscopes to calibrate stressed eye openings and test Rx conformance and jitter tolerance.

University of Florida Cybersecurity Team Turns to Tektronix to Outfit Electronics Security Lab

Tektronix announced that the Florida Institute for Cybersecurity Research (FICS Research) at the University of Florida Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering will outfit its electronics research lab with an extensive range of Tektronix test equipment. The instrumentation, ranging from mixed domain oscilloscopes to spectrum and logic analyzers, will advance the institute's research in Internet of Things (IoT) security, supply chain security, side channel analysis, physical tampering, reverse engineering, trust verification, forensics, failure analysis, and counterfeit detection. New cybersecurity solutions will be tested and courses and curriculum developed for students based on the capabilities of the equipment. FICS Research turned to Tektronix for its instrumentation needs based in part on the company's reputation as an industry leader and previous experience working with Tektronix equipment. As part of the partnership, Tektronix is making a substantial gift to the FICS Research program to supplement the purchased equipment which together has enabled the University of Florida to fully outfit its cybersecurity lab.
