Serial Bus Test Automation Software Platform

Product Overview

The Agilent N5990A test automation software platform is the most powerful tool for Serial and Multi-lane Gigabit testing. It is the unique universal platform for testing a wide range of digital buses such as PCI Express, USB, HDMI or MIPI. The same graphical user interface and operating principles are used for all applications. This boosts productivity, especially when testing devices which support multiple digital buses. The N5990A can be tailored to your individual test needs with the flexible test sequenzer and controls all instruments needed for your tests. The configurable database interface of the N5990A test automation platform enables the convenient storage of all test results. A web interface allows an effective and easy operation. Custom calibration and test procedures can be implemented easily with User Programming.

The N5990A software takes test automation to the next level of performance and convenience. It addresses specific bus standards by individual software modules with the same look and feel. As an example, option 101 provides PCI Express receiver testing, option 102 USB receiver testing etc. The receiver test software modules typically comprise:

  • One-button compliance capability to simplify the test procedure.
  • Compliance sweeps using the proper stimulus signal including calibrated jitter. This reduces measurement time to a minimum.
  • Printed and electronic versions of compliance test and characterization data ensure the simple and accurate documentation of results.
  • Precise characterization of the test device performance allows margin analysis.
  • Freely defined test points, e.g. jitter frequencies, without the need for pre-calculating pattern.
  • Integrated sources for periodic jitter, random jitter and bounded uncorrelated jitter stress generation.
