BERT Solution: For evaluating PCIe Gen5, USB, and Thunderbolt interfaces

Next-Generation Digital I/F Rx Tests


The spread of IoT devices and Cloud Computing services is causing explosive growth in data traffic handled by digital devices, in turn requiring faster serial device interfaces. The PCIe and USB interfaces used by digital devices are handling ever larger data volumes so the resulting next-generation PCI Express Gen5 standard reaches higher speeds of 32 GT/s, while USB3.1 Gen 2 supports 10 Gbit/s, USB4 supports 20 Gbit/s and USB4 Type-C is also compatible with Thunderbolt which also supports 20 Gbit/s.
