As bit rates increase to 10 Gbps and beyond, pattern-dependent failures become much more common in the generation, transmission, and reception of signals in various data and communication products and systems. Unfortunately with traditional test technologies, it has been very difficult and time consuming to reliably identify and
observe these failures.
With FrameScan™ acquisition technology in the DSA8200 sampling oscilloscope, you get a fast, reliable way to locate and examine these pattern-dependent failures. This oscilloscope supports automatic acquisition of successive individual bits - through an entire frame of data if needed -- helping to uncover bit sequences, which lead to erroneous
