1. Introduction

The PCIe 3.0 Receiver Test Automation Software runs on a PC, which
connects to a BERTScope/DPP (Deemphasis Preprocessor) stack of test
equipment via TCP/IP. It uses remote control automation protocols to
perform automated BER testing.

The software automates the process of calibrating the connection between
the DPP and the BERTScope; and saves the calibration results in a
Microsoft Access 2007 database. The software also automates the process
of calibrating the stressed eye for performing BER testing.

BER testing is performed by stepping through a wizard that automates the
process of loopback initiation and BER testing. The results are stored
in a built-in database and can be reported as HTML files or exported to
CSV Files.
