Agilent Technologies Inc. recently announced what it touts as the industry's fastest serial pulse data generator, with stimulus capability up to 13.5GHz. According to the press release, the Agilent 81142A enables reliable physical layer measurements for new, high-speed serial bus designs and for scientists conducting fundamental lab research. It allows engineers to conduct reliable, accurate physical layer tests by providing high-precision, low-jitter signals along with full control of data streams for performance and characterization testing.

"Accelerated development cycles make proprietary test solutions less suitable," said Siegfried Gross, VP and GM of Agilent's Digital Verification Solutions division. "Standard test instruments that do not compromise on signal quality, timing accuracy or programmatic control give the engineer a jump-start in high-quality characterization of new devices and systems. The combination of multiple data formats with sequencing, flexible triggering capability, and 13.5GHz performance is unique in the market."

Other features of the 13.5GHz serial pulse data generator include:

• Data formats RZ, R1 and NRZ, with flexible parameters and fast transition times for high-quality waveforms and eye diagram measurements;

• Flexible and programmable pattern and sequence generation for the entire range of digital high-speed serial buses;

• Linear delay modulation up to 1GHz for jitter-tolerance testing; and

• Remote programmable ultra-small pulses to trigger accurate measurements.

The Agilent 81142A 13.5GHz serial pulse data generator is priced at $108,000.
