Direct Attach Cable (DAC) Measurements


Direct Attach Cable (DAC) Measurements

The Eye opening of passive cables like Direct Attach Cables (DAC) used for short connections between server racks, etc., can be assured using the equalizer built into the equipment Rx section. The MX210002A can be used to measure S21 Gain and Phase characteristics of these devices. Moreover, since waveforms with optimized equalizer, filter, and emphasis values can be predicted from these transmission characteristics, Eye pattern measurement and Eye mask test of simulated waveforms can be performed.
In addition, combination with the MX210001A supports tests required for DAC manufacturing, such as Eye pattern measurement and jitter analysis, in one unit.
