A new Automotive Ethernet Debug Toolkit + Automotive Ethernet Breakout Test Fixture provides a dedicated debug environment for debugging signal quality communication issues. The setup separates bidirectional traffic and characterizes system performance with 12 eye diagram measurements.
The unique and dedicated Automotive Ethernet Debug Toolkit is designed to detect signal quality communication issues between a Master and Slave that are not identifiable during compliance testing. Fully characterize and quantify system performance with a suite of 12 parameters and enable equalization to visualize how the signal appears at the receiver.
The bidirectional nature of an Automotive Ethernet link provides a challenge for analyzing signals with an oscilloscope. The TF-AUTO-ENET separates bidirectional link traffic to independently view signals from the Master and Slave. A built-in calibration routine provides superior signal fidelity compared to alternative approaches.
Parameters used to characterize and quantify a link’s performance include eye height and eye width of both the upper and lower eyes. Users can visually observe system failure rates with customizable BER contours.
Users enable FF Equalization to see exactly how the signal appears at the receiver or determine which equalization scheme will be best for opening the eye. Define the number of taps and specific tap weightings or train the equalizer on acquired data.
