PCI Express®3.0 Base Specification Receiver Test Automation Software (GRL-PCIE3-BASE-RX)

Quickly test your Receiver Design to the PCIe 3.0 Base Specification


GRL’s PCI Express®3.0 Base Specification Receiver Calibration and Test Automation Software for the Tektronix BERTScope™ BSA (GRL-PCIE3-BASE-RX) provides an automated, simple, and efficient way to test your PCIe 3.0 Receiver to the Base (ASIC) Specification.

GRL-PCIE3-BASE-RX automates the BERTScope and Tek real-time oscilloscope to calibrate the stressed eye opening and test Rx conformance and jitter tolerance.Following an industry-standard methodology, GRLPCIE3-BASE-RX uses the Seasim statistical data eye simulator to establish DDJ and the final calibrated eye diagram.

GRL-PCIE3-BASE-RX provides a simple user interface to automate complex PCIe testing, significantly reduces equipment calibration time, and runs on any Windows 7 or Windows 8 OS-based PC or Oscilloscope.

Leverage and protect your BERTScope™ investment. Save valuable time and leverage resources across multiple projects.
