Tektronix Inc. has announced DPOJET, a new jitter and eye diagram analysis software application for DPO7000 and DPO/DSA70000 series oscilloscopes. DPOJET improves the accuracy, speed and efficiency of engineering test by expanding on features from existing TDSJIT3 and TDSRTE products. New capabilities in DPOJET include improved ease of use and performance and the addition of advanced compliance measurements for high-speed serial data technologies including PCIe and DisplayPort that are only available using Tektronix equipment.

The integration within DPOJET enables an uninterrupted workflow from first silicon analysis and characterization through product debug, validation and test, to compliance test and standards certification. The software is designed to take advantage of the performance of the DPO7000 series and the DPO/DSA70000 real-time oscilloscopesthe highest bandwidth, longest-record-length real-time oscilloscopes in the world, claimed Tektronix.

"From clock analysis at 20MHz to 10Gbps serial data streams, DPOJET maximizes the timing and jitter measurements of complex clock, digital, and serial data signals," said Brian Reich, general manager, performance scope product line, Tektronix. "DPOJET with our latest state-of-the-art oscilloscopes is the only solution with enough record length and sample rate on all channels to perform advanced measurements for PCI Express, HDMI and DisplayPort compliance. DPOJET provides our customers with an advanced, easy to use tool for the efficient measurement and characterization of serial devices."

The DPOJET software provides engineers with enhanced jitter and timing analysis capability for debug and design verification, and multichannel eye diagram analysis complete with mask and measurement limits testing capability for validation and compliance testing. DPOJET supports several clock recovery options including patented software PLL, patented real-time eye diagrams, explicit clocks with PLL multipliers, as well as complex jitter analysis and compliance testing with pass/fail limit checks.

Two versions of DPOJET are available for order and delivery. DPOJET Essentials provides basic jitter and timing measurements and analysis. DPOJET Advanced provides full jitter decomposition, jitter, timing and eye measurements, eye diagram analysis and limits testing.

DPOJET Essentials is available for $2,000 on the DPO7000 Series. DPOJET Advanced starts at $5,000 on the DPO7000, $7,000 on DPO70000 Series and at $1,500 on the DSA70000 Series. All prices are U.S. MSRP.
