100BASE-T1/BroadR-Reach® Datasheet

Automotive Ethernet Test Solution







The integration of automotive Ethernet technology has placed greater demands on comprehensive design validation to ensure interoperability between multiple ECUs and devices that will perform reliability in demanding environments. A complete testing solution is a necessity in meeting strict compliance tests and having greater confidence in design margins operating under real world conditions.

The Tektronix solution provides the instruments and tools that can fully address early validation and debug requirements along with fully automated compliance test software for 100BASE-T1 and BroadR-Reach standards.

Validation and debug

Validation and debugging can easily be accomplished early in the design process and ahead of final compliance testing by using the 5 Series MSO oscilloscope. The oscilloscope’s standard measurement set, along with the optional 5-DJA Advanced Jitter and Timing Analysis software, supports several of the key compliance tests including:

  • Clock frequency and transmitter amplitude with histogram and trend analysis
  • Positive and negative droop measurements
  • Full characterization of jitter performance including TIE and histogram profiles
  • Eye diagram analysis of PAM3 signals


This type of early testing increases the likelihood of passing compliance tests, while allowing more complete characterization and determination of design margins. Master and slave jitter measurements can be particularly challenging given the tight compliance limits and the need to eliminate any possible sources of random or deterministic jitter.
