*PGY-NEGO KX/KR DME and Line Training Protocol Analysis Software ▼
Engineers designing and validating backplane Ethernet need to monitor and debug multi-gigabit KR/KX protocol interface to ensure reliable operation of the system. In an emerging technology, engineers can test and debug designs with easy-to-use instruments such as oscilloscopes. Oscilloscopes normally provide extensive details about electrical characteristics of the signal. But engineers need more information such as protocol content at various protocol layers. In a versatile 1000Base KX/KR protocol standard, manually interpreting the protocol layer information using oscilloscope data is time consuming and prone to human error.
PGY-NEGO KX/KR Software runs on Tektronix DPO/DSA/MSO70000 oscilloscope series. PGY-NEGO Software KX/KR utilizes the hardware based real-time serial pattern trigger and long acquisition record length up to 200MB to provide superior DME and Line Training KX/KR Protocol Analysis Solution.
The industry’s first oscilloscope-based PGY-NEGO KX/KR Protocol Analysis software lets you see every event in the KR/KX stream.
PGY-NEGO KR/KX Protocol Analyzer software performs the KR/KX DME and Line Training compliance tests as per IEEE 802.3ap Standard. It provides unmatched flexibility in analyzing, debugging, and correlating the test results from KR/KX Frame to physical layer analog waveforms to address the multi-gigabit KR/KX design challenges.
For efficient debugging, PGY-NEGO KX/KR software provides unique viewers, which comprises of Analyze view, DME Detail view, DME field view and Detail view. Automatic cross-linking between all these viewers enables you to see and correlate the data in different parts of the Gigabit KR/KX protocol stack.
