Ease-of-use with guided test steps

The Ethernet compliance test is a fully guided test. Detailed, image-based instructions make it easy to correctly connect the oscilloscope and the probes to the test fixture and the device under test. This increases the ease-of-use and reduces potential setup errors.

Strong reporting functionality

The test results are fully documented in a report created by the R&S ScopeSuite. Depending on the user’s preference, the test report can include numerical result data or oscilloscope screen shots. The available output formats are PDF, DOC and HTML.
