New QPHY-NBASE-T Ethernet compliance software

13 December 2023

The QPHY-NBASE-T comprehensive software solution for testing and validating N-Base-T Ethernet compliance as defined by the IEEE 802.3bz-2018 specification is now available from Teledyne LeCroy.

The easy-to-use automated solution streamlines the testing process, eliminating the need for a separate spectrum analyzer and significantly reducing measurement complexity. QPHY-NBASE-T uses the QualiPHY automated compliance test software to operate the oscilloscope and disturbing generator, provide connection diagrams and ensure the proper setup. QualiPHY automates the instrument and provides aSource: Teledyne LeCroySource: Teledyne LeCroy comprehensive report of the results including screenshots.

QPHY-NBASE-T supports signal acquisition for direct SubMiniature version A (SMA) cabling together with the TF-NBASE-T, reducing noise and measurement inaccuracies. Since all measurements are made with the oscilloscope and no additional spectrum analyzer is required, the measurement effort is significantly reduced.

Measurement results often need to be summarized and tabulated to quickly verify specifications. This information, together with instrument and signal acquisition/test condition setups, results in a fully documented record. QPHY-NBASE-T streamlines this process by incorporating an automatic HTML report generation engine. The created test reports contain tabulated numerical values for each individual test result, including PASS/FAIL and specification limit columns.
