Intrsopect Press Release: SV1C SerDes Tester in Medical Applications

Medical Equipment Manufacturers Find Healthy Alternative in Introspect’s SV1C Personalized SerDes Testers

Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
Introspect Technology has delivered SV1C Personalized SerDes Testers to several leading medical equipment manufacturers looking to create imaging systems, robotics, and communications links. As these applications have started to deploy high-speed Gigabit per Second (Gbps) SerDes technologies, the decision to select Introspect was based on full-featured functionality and ultra compact form factors.

"To test our serial communications cables in our latest imaging equipment, we surveyed the electronics measurement market and found that Introspect Technology was the only vendor that gave us a complete integrated stimulus/capture solution and a highly intuitive user interface," said David D’Alfonso of Arthrex California Technology Inc. "Not only did we get the functionality we were looking for at a very compelling price point, but the entire purchase experience, from first evaluation to application integration, was seamless," he elaborated.

Medical equipment subsystems that benefit from the Introspect’s SV1C testers include active optical cable (AOC) assemblies, high-definition imaging and display subsystems, and high-bandwidth data conversion units based on the emerging JESD204B standard for SerDes-based A/D and D/A converters.

Highly-sophisticated and deftly engineered, a single SV1C Personalized SerDes Tester includes independent and parallel bit error rate evaluation, jitter and wander injection, jitter measurement, eye diagram analysis, digital communication signal analysis (oscilloscope analysis), per lane clock recovery, per lane pre-emphasis and equalization, flexible per-lane pattern generation, fractional (non-integer) clock synchronization, and waveform generation across 8 simultaneous lanes and at any data rate up to 14 Gbps.

Lady Bug News: Windows 32/64 Solution

The attached PDF describes our solution for customers using LadyBug Sensors programmatically in Windows 64 bit computers running 32 bit applications. This solution has been developed for use with LabVIEW, however it works great in most 32 bit applications running under Windows 64, such as VEE, C++, C Sharp etc. We provide example code in EXCEL along with LabVIEW drivers in the downloads section of our site.
