A sometimes overlooked yet very important element of data center interconnects is the low speed I2C CMIS interface. MultiLane has developed solutions to program and test the CMIS interface of transceivers for the key MSAs. This product enables developers to test whether the CMIS interface is compliant with the spec. Another key solution is the combination of a port extender with an analyzer board, which equips the user to troubleshoot and debug the communication from the host to the transceiver module, in case there is a system bring-up issue.
MultiLane has recently released Analyzer GUI v2.0, which now supports timing measurements and data logging across multiple operational modes with a refreshed look and feel.
