Tektronix, a leader in providing measurement solutions, has introduced the latest high-speed test solutions to the Research & Development (R&D) lab for Raspberry Pi. The new laboratory is all set to focus on high-speed serial design and validation testing. The new test equipment will not only cater to the current needs but will also ensure sufficient bandwidth so as to support any high-speed interfaces requiring highest performance instrumentation.
In order to support high speed and complex validation testing, the lab is going to be equipped with industry’s most powerful mixed-signal test solutions. The lab’s end-to-end transmit and receive test solutions will include a Tektronix AWG70002A 25GS/s Arbitrary Waveform Generator and an MSO72304DX 23GHz Mixed Signal Real Time Oscilloscope.
“The humble Raspberry Pi actually contains a number of complex, high-speed serial buses, each with their own unique challenges. Interfaces like HDMI, USB and MIPI DPHY each use very different test methodologies,” said Mike Stimson, Principle Hardware Engineer at Raspberry Pi. “Tektronix has helped us put together a capability which not only allows us to quickly and easily test each one, but will enable us to be ready for whatever the Raspberry Pi of the future may hold.”
“Tektronix’ goal is to eliminate the barriers between inspiration and realization of world-changing technologies. We are delighted to work with Raspberry Pi to bring the digital world to the whole world,” said Dave Farrell, Vice President Commercial Operations Europe, Middle East and Africa. “Next generation digital interface standards and increasingly complex test requirements are pushing the limits of today’s compliance and debug tools. This partnership and the solution provided will ensure that Raspberry Pi are able to continue to play a key role in shaping the digital world now and in the future. We can’t wait to see the exciting technologies this partnership will enable among the extensive Raspberry Pi community.”
The Raspberry Pi Foundation works to put the power of digital making into the hands of people all over the world, so that they can understand and shape up the increasingly digital world, solve the problems that matter to them, and are equipped for the jobs of the future.
Tektronix delivers innovative, precise and easy-to-operate test, measurement and monitoring solutions that solve problems, unlock insights and drive discovery.
