VIA Technologies Inc. has selected digital systems analysis tools from Tektronix Inc. to develop digital products based on serial data standards such as second-generation PCI-Express and SATA III.

The integrated Tektronix solution, consisting of TLA7000 logic analyzers and ultra-high-performance TDS6000 oscilloscopes, will enable VIA's engineers to perform design validation, and comprehensive interoperability and compliance testing on digital products based on PCI-Express and SATA III specifications.

For its measurement needs VIA selected the new Tektronix TLA7012 and TLA7016 logic analyzers, the 12GHz TDS6124C oscilloscope and the 15GHz TDS6154C, the fastest real-time oscilloscope in the world. TLA7000 series logic analyzers include the iLink tool set which seamlessly integrates the logic analyzer with an oscilloscope to provide instant digital and analog insight, and radically speeds the debugging of multiple signals.

"VIA has kept ahead of the industry through anticipating appropriate upcoming technologies and implementing them either as discrete silicon or integrated into the widest range of core logic chipsets in the industry," said Chewei Lin, VP of product Marketing at VIA Technologies. "High-speed serial buses such as second-generation PCI Express and SATAIII present new challenges when making design and compliance measurements. The combination of TLA7000 logic analyzers and TDS6000 oscilloscopes from Tektronix supports our measurement needs at each stage of design, validation, compliance and debug, and will enable our engineers to test high-speed serial designs with total confidence."
