SANTA ROSA, California, August 02, 2021– (BUSINESS WIRE) – Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS)

What: High-speed digital standards are evolving and generational technological changes introduce new testing challenges for digital designs. At DesignCon 2021, Keysight technical experts will highlight high-speed digital designs at all stages of product development, enabling customers to anticipate testing challenges and optimize performance, as well as accelerate the time-to-market of high-speed computing interfaces, data center connections and consumer electronics.


August 16 – 18, 2021


Keysight Booth 807

San José McEnery Convention Center

Exhibition information

Tuesday August 17, 2021: 11 am-6pm PDT

Wednesday August 18, 2021: 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. PDT

Keysight will provide the following demos that will help speed up a customer’s digital designs:

  • PathWave design

  • High speed computing interfaces

    • PCI Express (PCIe) Transmitter (Tx) and Receiver (Rx) test solutions (PCIe5 and PCI6 pathfinding) that examine signal integrity issues, connector crosstalk issues, receiver jitter sensitivity , overall channel insertion loss and attenuated signals.

    • Input / Output Buffer Information (IBIS) specific algorithmic modeling interface (AMI) models on an enhanced dual data rate (DDR5) bit-by-bit channel simulator that provides signal access, automated control Device Under Test (DUT) for rapid test repeatability and a data repository for rapid analysis of results and rapid decision-making.

  • Data center connectivity

    • An automated test system for 100Gbps (800G) physical layer (PHY) validation that requires unique precision measurements to validate new test methods and specifications before the standard is completed.

    • A conformance testing solution for 400GBASE devices and components to achieve increased bandwidth in data center networks and designed to incorporate forward error correction (FEC) constraints into physical design validation.

  • Consumer electronics

    • USB4 and DisplayPort 2.0 compatible solutions over a low cost passive cable (using inaccurate approximations and partial data suppression to represent content), with the Keysight UXR-Series oscilloscope.

  • Signal integrity

    • Providing insight into associated signal integrity issues such as reflections, eye diagram closure, crosstalk, and receiver-level bit errors for physical layer interconnect components up to 800G.

  • Intelligent automation of software testing

In Executive ballroom Room 210E, Keysight test and measurement experts will offer free Keysight Education Forum (KEF) sessions:

Sessions of Tuesday, August 17

  • 32 Gb PAM4 Advanced Testing Challenges with PCIe 6.0

  • Next Generation Development in the Type C Ecosystem

  • Physical layer validation Challenges of characterizing designs at 100 Gbps / lane

  • Solving forward error correction issues

Sessions of Wednesday, August 18

  • Guide to Recalibrate Signal Integrity Intuition for Memory Interfaces

  • Accelerate the latest skills for power integrity design / debugging

  • Next Generation Memory Solutions

  • Find out why testing disaggregated 5G elements in isolations is necessary to ensure good O-RAN Fronthaul compliance

Additionally, on Tuesday August 17, visit the Chiphead Theater from 2:15 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. for Keysight’s Modernization of tests and measurements technical session.
