Abstract

This device facilitates specification and functional stress test of standard EIA-RS-232 on telecommunications interfaces. Electrical parameters such as signal level, impedance and signal rise time can be measured, as set forth in this industry standard, for a device-to-modem interface. Additionally, the operating interface may be subjected to controlled amounts of amplitude and impedance stress so that the functional limits of the device, for example, a system terminal, can be determined.
