October 01, 2023 by Rohde & Schwarz

Application Note Overview 

Testing high speed cables for data centers or consumer electronics is a highly complex task that requires precision, support for higher frequencies and a multiport setup. Conventional manual testing with a 4-port vector network analyzer is a time consuming task and can be prone to human error. This application card introduces a fully automated compliance test solution, based on the R&S®ZNrun vector network analyzer test automation suite. It allows easy, precise and time-saving standards-compliance testing for high speed cables.
