We see from your search that you're looking for information on the term "BERT", and we have a large number of manufacturers' news releases and technical articles here on Electronicstalk which will be of interest. Let me be your guide.

Start with the news release Scope sets the standard for DisplayPort tests from Agilent Technologies Europe, which we summarised at the time by saying "Full physical layer test coverage for both sink and source of DisplayPort, reducing validation time and drastically increasing DisplayPort product reliability". A few weeks before, we featured the news release Boundary-scan system supports Intel's IBIST from Asset InterTech: "IBIST leverages the boundary-scan IEEE1149.1 specification as the hardware and software communication methodology for accessing and controlling its embedded on-chip capabilities".

In September 2007, we covered the news from Anritsu (UK) concerning its MP1810 - take a look at Comms tester speeds IC development which says: "New jitter unit enables Phyworks to reduce evaluation time for 10G products and contributes to quick time to market".

Take a look also at the news release from Yokogawa Europe - Test and Measurement, Optical instrumentation extends to XFP modules, as well as Sixteen serial ports ride on PCI Express bus from Sealevel Systems, and Software upgrades serial bit-error-rate tester from Agilent Technologies Europe.
