To take measurements; it would depend on the customer's research needs; use an oscilloscope for time domain signaling or optical modulation analyzer for frequency or I&Q signaling to calibrate expected performance from the AWG; then; if it's an active device; compare expected response from the calibrated source to the device's output. If it's a passive device; send the calibrated source through the device and evaluate against the source itself.

What does the measurements?

Chris,

You say "take measurements on the response" but what instrument does that? What kind of response might you get?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
