The event's 14,500 attendees can now see first hand how advanced real-time and equivalent time (sampling) oscilloscope solutions enable a seamless transition from 400G validation and debug through to production test for faster time to market and improved manufacturing yields.
"The race is on to deliver fully production-ready 400G solutions to datacenters by the end of this year, if not sooner, to meet urgent global demand for more bandwidth and capacity," said Sarah Boen, general manager, Wired Communications, Tektronix. "As we will be demonstrating at OFC, Tektronix is leading the way with the test solutions that component and system designers and manufacturers need to meet this accelerated time table and successfully compete in the marketplace."
Compared to previous networking generations, the move to 400G and more complex PAM4 signaling has been especially challenging. Engineers must deal with more complex test methodologies, a much lower signal-to-noise ratio and more sophisticated design validation and troubleshooting processes.
