Keysight brings automated 112 Gbps conformance test solution

Keysight Technologies announced the industry’s first compliance test solution for validating 112 Gbps serial data center interface to the latest industry standards.
Keysight 5G testing solutions
Data center operators and hyperscalers are implementing 800G, the next generation of data center connectivity technology, to address bandwidth, virtualization and switching capacity requirements as well as the need for cost-effective power efficient data transportation.

Interfaces capable of supporting speeds of at least 100 Gbps and per lane are critical to realizing the benefits of 800G deployments. Keysight’s 112 Gbps conformance test platform enables optical transceiver manufacturers to accurately verify both the transmitter (TX) and receiver (RX) of designs that support connectivity speeds of 100 Gbps or greater.

The new 112 Gbps conformance test solution leverages Keysight’s M8040A 64 GBaud high performance bit error ratio tester (BERT) with a N1060A Digital Communication Analyzer (DCA) for receiver testing and Keysight’s Infiniium UXR-Series real-time oscilloscope for transmitter testing.
