The 93000 SoC series of Agilent Technologies Inc. was selected by Nvidia Corp. for testing its current PCI Express-based devices. The BIST Assist 6.4 solution, an extension to the 93000 SoC Series' single scalable architecture, enables Nvidia to benefit from the industry's lowest-cost test solution for high-speed interfaces such as PCI Express and maximizes its investment in test equipment.

Agilent said the BIST Assist 6.4 enables signal integrity testing of high-speed serial interconnects up to 6.4Gbps using a cost-effective loopback/BIST (built-in self-test) and reduces costs by more than 50 percent over conventional at-speed production solutions. The BIST Assist 6.4 combines the fault coverage of traditional ATE and the low cost associated with loopback. This allows for a scalable, cost-effective, high-speed serial link testing solution that maximizes capital equipment investment.
