Anritsu Launches MP1800A USB3.1 Receiver Test Solution


Anritsu introduces USB3.1 Receiver Test Solution using MP1800A Signal Quality Analyzer. High-Speed Serial Data Test Software MX183000A support the newest USB3.1 Gen2 (SuperSpeed+, 10 Gbit/s) receiver test standards.

October 31th, 2016 – Anritsu Corporation (President Hirokazu Hashimoto) is launching its USB3.1 Receiver Test Solution using the Signal Quality Analyzer MP1800A on October 31, 2016.
The developed USB3.1 Receiver Test Adapter G0373A and High-Speed Serial Data Test Software MX183000A support the newest USB3.1 Gen2 (SuperSpeed+, 10 Gbit/s) receiver test standards.

[Development Background]
Digital equipment interfaces are speeding-up and switching to serial technology to handle high-speed transmission of large data traffic, such as high-definition 4K video. The newest high-speed interface USB3.1 Gen2 standard supports 10 Gbit/s via the latest USB Type-C connector.
A huge variety of digital equipment is connected to personal computers (PCs), requiring testing to assure equipment compatibility. The performance of the USB interface with the PC is tested by inputting test signals with added stress, such as fixed transmission path loss, Jitter, etc. Additionally, assuring signal integrity at these high speeds requires testers with high-quality reference test signals, as well as functions for communicating with interfaces.

[Summary of Receiver Test using G0373A, MP1800A Series and MX183000A]
The Signal Quality Analyzer MP1800A is a plug-in modular Bit Error Rate Tester (BERT) supporting measurement of multi-channel wideband interfaces up to 32 Gbit/s. Additionally, high-reproducibility USB3.1 Gen2 receiver tests are implemented using optimized high-quality output waveforms to measure high-speed interfaces.
Combining the G0373A and MP1800A supports generation of signals required by USB3.1 receiver tests as well as BER measurements. The MX183000A software controls the combined MP1800A and G0373A measurement system to set and control the receiver test signals and display the BER measurement results. The combination of the MP1800A, G0373A, and MX183000A offers an all-in-one USB3.1 receiver test solution for assured high-reproducibility. And automated measurement using the Granite River Labs automation software GRL –USB31- RXA helps lighten test workloads.
