Distributor AEM Test Equipment - Mixed-Mode Vector Network Analyzer, Network Service Assitant


The company is dedicated to the development of high-speed communication QSFP28/QSFP56(zQSFP+), SFP28/SFP56(zSFP)+, OSFP56/800, and QSFP-DD56/800 host compliance boards (HCB) and module compliance boards (MCB) for 802.3bj (100GBASE-CR4),802.3by (50GBASE-CR), 802.3cd (50GBASE-CR,100BASE-CR2 and 200GBASE-CR4), 802.3ck (100GBASE-CR1,200BASE-CR2 and 400GBASE-CR4), 802.3bm and 802.3bs. The uniqueness of PHY-SI is that its developers are participants and contributors to the IEEE communication standards.  The PHY-SI developers understand the complexity of the test compliance fixtures and the accuracy required to meet the standards and specifications.

About the Hardware:

These boards are built with solid sophisticated materials to minimize signal loss, return loss, and deliver repeatable results. The high-frequency response SMA connectors are threaded to ensure solid contact and last many insertions and extractions with no hanging wires. The SMA connectors are laid out to ease connectivity to the test equipment. These test fixtures have been rigorously tested to ensure confidence to 400GbE design engineers that their own products meet the strict standard specifications. This hardware is fully designed, fabricated, assembled, and tested in the USA. We will provide s-parameter performance of the test fixtures upon request.

Distributor AEM Test Equipment: 

In addition to collaborative custom test and measurement solutions, PHY-SI is AEM distributor for: 

  • Network Service Assistant (NSA), a hybrid test solution that bridges the gap between qualification and certification testing to introduce a new category in test equipment with Qualification+.   
  • Multi-port Vector Network Analyzer (MMVNA) a small form factor solution designed for laboratory and manufacturing where qualification of cabling and connectors such as those used by the Automotive industry single pair Ethernet is required at a fraction of cost of completive products.
