In the above Tektronix DSA8200 TDR/T S-parameter interconnect Design Verification system, two 80E10 50GHz TDR sampling heads are connected directly to the GigaProbes™ using the GPMMA adapter supported by the Tektronix PPM100 Articulating arm. The 80E10 TDR/Sampling module and TDR probing assembly is placed close to the DUT via its instrument interface cable connected to the DSA8200. Eliminating the Probe to SMA Cable extends the TDR edge rise/fall time and interconnects analysis resolution. The faster TDR edge makes visible interconnect anomalies that may be missed and widens the IConnect® MeasureXtractor™ created S-parameters bandwidth.
The DSA8200 TDR system displays the differential Impedance waveform. The LCD monitor shows the interconnect S-parameters created from the waveform using the IConnect® MeasureXtractor™ SI software running resident on the DSA8200 operating system. This complete interconnect system is efficient, easy-to-use and cost-effective solution for signal integrity analysis, impedance measurement, S-parameter and eye diagram compliance tests of gigabit interconnect links and devices.

Tektronix Serial Data Network & Link Analysis Solutions
Tektronix comprehensive, integrated tool set for the latest high-speed serial technologies. Connect a GigaProbes® on each end of the serial transmission interconnect for TDR/TDT verification, S-Parameter measurement, Jitter, Noise and BER analysis -enables you to resolve design challenges quickly and efficiently. Tektronix Equalization and Channel Emulation capabilities ensure you can see the effect of the channel on the eye and observe a realistic signal at the input of your receiver. As serial data speeds increase, loss and distortion caused by the channel must be equalized in the receiver for the signal to be recognizable. Meanwhile, effects of loss and crosstalk must be fully verified in both time- and frequency-domains. A powerful, flexible test solution that addresses these requirements maximizes characterization throughput and improves time to market.
In the picture on the Left a TDS8200 Tektronix TDR system is used with two Gigaprobes™ and a Probe Station to model a T Cable assembly. TDR/TDT waveforms were taken and converted to S-parameters using IConnect. The S-parameters were ported to ADS and converted to a behaveral model.
The GigaProbes(tm) is compatible with the The DSA8200 digital serial analyzer sampling oscilloscope. Use your Gigaprobes(tm) in the 100 ohm differential or 50 ohm single ended mode for interconect analysis applications - TDR performance, S-parameter bandwidth using the Tektronix IConnect software.The GigaProbes are also compatable with all Legacy TDR Sampling oscilloscopes like the 11800 series.Order sampling head extenders to get the TDR sampling heads close to the device under test so you can use short cables to reduce the TDR risetime degradation.
The Gigaprobes(tm) can be directly attached to the new 80E10 and 80E08 TDR modules for the fastest TDR rise time for a hand held probe.
