BitPhyer: Ethernet Testing for the Future

Is this test tool right for you?

BitPhyer’s intriguing ability to test even the strangest networking scenarios without much effort makes testing devices quick, efficient, and intuitive.

BitPhyer revolutionizes the use of FPGA’s for Ethernet conformance testing. I have been using BitPhyer for six months, and in that time I have adapted the tool to do multiple forms of conformance testing. The flexibility granted by the FPGA presents the opportunity to perform a diverse set of...

The BitPhyer 10G – The IOL’s 10GBase-R Ethernet Test Tool

The UNH-IOL has a number of commercially available traffic generators that are used in 10Gb Ethernet conformance testing. These traffic generators allow us to send custom frames to DUTs (Devices Under Test) during conformance and interoperability testing. We can customize the type, size, and data payload of the frames, and we can even use these traffic generators to send specific patterns of different frames. Yet many tests of the underlying physical layer we identify in our test suites require a...
