SANTA CLARA Calif.
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced the availability of its Method of Implementation (MOI) document for 10GBASE-KR/40GBASE-KR4 backplane Ethernet interconnect and transmitter/receiver impedance testing using the ENA Series network analyzer's enhanced time domain analysis option (E5071C-TDR).
High-speed data applications such as cloud computing are connected to the network via the IEEE 802.3ap Ethernet backplane. To verify compliance, components must be tested in accordance with this specification. Agilent's MOIs ease this process by providing engineers with a measurement guide of procedures that support compliance testing for each high-speed communication standard. Using the 10GBASE-KR and 40GBASE-KR4 MOIs and state files, engineers can now more efficiently perform compliance tests to the 10GBASE-KR and 40GBASE-KR4 standards with the E5071C-TDR.
"We currently offer MOIs for many high-speed digital applications, such as HDMI, MIPI and 100BASE-TX/10GBASE-T Ethernet," said Akira Nukiyama, vice president and general manager, Agilent's Component Test Division. "Our recent addition of MOIs for the 10GBASE-KR and 40GBASE-KR4 standards further reinforces our commitment to provide our customers the capabilities they need to address their high-speed measurement challenges."
The 10GBASE-KR and 40GBASE-KR4 MOIs for use with the E5071C-TDR are now available as new applications at www.agilent.com/find/ena-tdr_compliance. Additional information on MOI for Ethernet cable test and transmitter/receiver test is available at www.agilent.com/find/ena-tdr_ethernet-cabcon and www.agilent.com/find/ena-tdr_ethernet-txrx, respectively. An image of the new ENA Series network analyzer's enhanced time domain analysis option is available at www.agilent.com/find/e5071C_TDR_images.
