10BASE-T/100BASE-TX, scope-based Ethernet protocol decoders

April 15, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Keysight Technologies has added what it claims as the most comprehensive 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX Ethernet protocol decoders.

The Keysight N8825A (for 90000A, 90000 X-, 90000 Q-, Z- and V-Series oscilloscopes) and N8825B (for S-Series oscilloscopes) 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX Ethernet protocol decoders help network design engineers accelerate turn-on and debug of 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX Ethernet networking systems by decoding 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX Ethernet packets on compatible oscilloscopes with a minimum of 500-MHz bandwidth.

Engineers need to be able to determine if the physical signal and decoded Ethernet data are functioning correctly in their designs. The ability to view both raw and decoded data simultaneously allows engineers to determine where the issue resides in their designs.

The Keysight 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX Ethernet protocol decoders automatically set up Ethernet signals to make decode setup fast. The protocol decoder allows developers to see raw analogue signals, decoded data and all Ethernet traffic in listing view and packet view. Developers can trigger and search on specific packets including IPv4, IPv6 and packet errors.
