Credo Selects Teledyne LeCroy’s SierraNet M648 for 400GbE Auto-Negotiation and Link Training Validation

SierraNet™ M648 accelerates link interoperability design and development

Milpitas, CA, September 21, 2021 – Teledyne LeCroy, the worldwide leader in High Speed Ethernet test and measurement solutions, is pleased to announce that Credo has selected Teledyne LeCroy’s SierraNet M648 Network and Fabric test platform for testing their designs and validating their evolving Digital Signal Processing (DSP) devices for 50Gb to 400Gb Ethernet, ensuring rapid development and deployment of their next generation solutions.

As Ethernet data rates rapidly increase and new signaling schemes like PAM4 are adopted, it is critical to ensure next generation network components are interoperable and maintain reliable connections. The SierraNet M648 test platform is the leading comprehensive analysis platform for independent and unobtrusive high-speed Ethernet testing at all layers of communication. Credo’s wide range of solutions, including networking equipment line cards and optical modules, require rapid development and deployment of Ethernet specification compliant and highly interoperable interconnect solutions. Credo chose the SierraNet M648 specifically for designing and validating their evolving Ethernet DSP devices for 50GbE to 400GbE in part, because the SierraNet M648 test platform provides:

  • Full NRZ or PAM4 deep buffer line-rate capture for 10/25/50Gbps Ethernet traffic
  • Detailed Speed Negotiation and Transmitter Training analysis
  • Complete Forward Error Correction (FEC) observation
  • Comprehensive multi-state impairment capabilities for error recovery and validation testing

“Our evaluation of SierraNet platform was highly successful.  We immediately saw the value in accelerating our product development,” said Phil Sun, Vice President of Architecture at Credo. “Testing with Teledyne LeCroy will help ensure first time right solutions and overall customer satisfaction.”
