Ethernet Test Solution for Semiconductor Companies

Aukua MGA2510

Semiconductor companies are powering the proliferation of Ethernet. Not just within traditional telecommunications and Enterprise storage and data networks, but now in the automotive, aerospace and defence, industrial manufacturing and energy sectors. To remain competitive, semiconductor companies must rapidly innovate, and a critical part of doing this successfully is leveraging powerful test and measurement tools.

This is where Aukua helps, with smarter more flexible test solutions to help our IC customers reduce time to market with confidence. From design all the way through manufacturing, we help our customers prove key new functionality, ensure the highest level of performance and reliability, and verify interoperability.

Ethernet Testing: Validate, Characterize, Troubleshoot, Capture and Analyze

The Aukua MGA2510 is a powerful and flexible 3-in-1 Ethernet test solution supporting traffic generation for bandwidth performance and latency characterization, inline capture and traffic analysis for troubleshooting and network impairment emulation for real-world performance testing and negative functional testing.


Traffic Generator

Verify throughput performance, accurately characterize one-way or two-way latency, or conduct Bit Error Rate (BER) testing to prove system integrity. The traffic generator also has unique support for Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), and a powerful PCAP Player extending flexibility with playback control of preamble data.

Inline Capture and Analyzer

Transparently sit inline between systems under test to capture PCS layer bits, preamble data or L2+ packets. Monitor traffic in real-time, and gain visibility to quickly troubleshoot hard to find problems. Perform event timing correlation and analysis.

Network Impairment Emulator

Repeatable and programmable "real-world" testing in the lab insert delay, limit bandwidth, or introduce impairment conditions for negative functional testing, to efficiently reproduce customer found problems, or for realistic performance testing.
