CAMARILLO, Calif. -- Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (VTSS.PK) is providing system designers with new possibilities to redefine the dynamics and economies of backplane design, signal integrity analysis, test & measurement equipment, and remote monitoring in communication systems with the introduction of VScope™, a revolutionary Integrated Circuit (IC) based waveform viewing technology. VScope embeds the oscilloscope function into the receiver of ICs used in communication systems, thus offering direct viewing of signal characteristics similar to traditional lab oscilloscopes.

Vitesse’s patented technology provides a more accessible and cost effective signal analysis tool that can be remotely monitored through network connections. VScope technology leapfrogs current signal integrity methods to scan the input data eye within the chip itself and produces the industry’s first offering of true in-line imaging of the real-time data stream on a per-pin basis.

“Vitesse’s approach to embedded waveform viewing technology will certainly drive signal analysis across the network, resulting in greater network reliability for end-users,” said Will Strauss, principal analyst for Forward Concepts. “They have brought to market a solution that enables exceptionally high accuracy and newfound visibility critical for cost-effective system debug and remote monitoring. As well, the advanced ‘micro-oscilloscope’ afforded by VScope will spark the advent of new applications that go beyond the reach of today’s lab scope functionality.”
