Manufacturer's part number :
The N6468A SFP+ Ethernet compliance software for Infiniium Series oscilloscopes gives you a fast and easy way to verify and debug your SFP+ (enhanced small form-factor pluggable) and QSFP+ (quad-enhanced small form-factor pluggable) Ethernet designs. The Ethernet compliance software lets you automatically execute Ethernet physical-layer (PHY) electrical tests and displays the results in a flexible report format. In addition to the measurement data, the report provides a margin analysis that shows how closely your device passed or failed each test.
The SFP+ compliance software performs a wide range of electrical tests to meet the SFP+ and QSFP+ electrical specifications as documented in the SFF-8431 standard. The software requires the Wilder Technologies SFP+ test fixture that connects from the device under test to the oscilloscope. For the optional QSFP+ Ethernet compliance software, you will need the Keysight U3020A S26 or BitIfEye BIT2100 switch matrix hardware along with the Wilder Technologies QSFP+ test fixture to support multi-channel digital signals.
The N6468A SFP+ compliance software runs on all Infiniium 90000 Series oscilloscopes.
