Keysight Technologies Inc. 86100D Infiniium DCA-X Oscilloscope Mainframe

The flexible, modular platform can be configured to cover a wide range of applications such as:

  • Transceiver Design and Manufacturing
  • ASIC / FPGA / IC Design and Characterization
  • Signal Integrity measurements on Serial Bus Designs, Cables, Printed Circuit Boards (PCB)

Precision measurements on high-speed signals at the touch of one button!

  • Scope Mode yields the most accurate waveform measurements
  • Eye/Mask Mode provides fast and accurate compliance testing of transceivers
  • TDR/TDT Mode for precision impedance measurements with S-Parameter capability
  • Jitter and amplitude mode for comprehensive analysis of signal characteristics, and an optional integrated precision timebase allows < 100 fs jitter and high channel counts

Powerful analysis features provide greater insight

  • Integrated de-embedding, embedding, and equalization capability
  • Jitter Spectrum and Phase Locked Loop (PLL) Analysis
  • Jitter analysis on long patterns such as PRBS31
  • Custom measurements and analysis using The MathWorks MATLAB software
  • Comprehensive, fast and accurate compliance and debug applications for use on DCA-X or PC

Lowest Cost of Test

  • Explore major cost of test reduction ideas using the Eye Mask Hit Ratio Technique and Auto Mask Margin
  • Testing optica l transceivers in parallel can dramatically reduce the amount of equipment required for your production line
  • Modular buy only what you need today knowing you can upgrade later
  • Protect your investment - the 86100D is 100% compatible with all DCA modules

86100D DCA-X Wide-bandwidth Oscilloscope

Keysight product manager Robert Sleigh describes the 86100D DCA-X Wide-bandwidth Oscilloscope

The 86100D DCA-X Wide-Bandwidth Oscilloscope is a modular platform that provides accurate and precise measurements on high-speed digital designs from 50 Mb/s to more than 80 Gb/s. Users configure the 86100D DCA-X mainframe by selecting from a variety of plug-in modules that perform precision optical, electrical, and TDR/TDT measurements. Select specific modules to obtain the desired bandwidth, filtering, and sensitivity that match your measurement needs. For a complete listing of 86100 DCA plug-in modules, refer to the 86100D Data Sheet (Lit# 5990-5824EN), 86100D Brochure (Lit# 5990-5822EN), or this online DCA Module Selection Tool

In addition to providing industry leading signal integrity measurements, the DCA-X provides:
