Practical techniques for generating test signals between 10Gbps and 50Gbps are described. An historical review shows that the problem of extending ATE to higher rates has been around for several decades, with ever-increasing speed requirements. We demonstrate, in this paper that multiplexing techniques that permitted 40-50 Mbps testing in the 1980s (then… CONTINUE READING
