Venus 4 (ISL55161)

SOC Dual Channel 400MHz/800Mbps Pin Electronics Driver/Comparator/Active Load/Timing Deskew/PPMU/DACs

The ISL55161 is a highly integrated System-on-a-Chip (SOC) pin electronics solution aimed at incorporating every analog function, along with some digital support functionality, required on a per channel basis for Automated Test Equipment. The interface, control and I/O of the chip are all digital; all analog circuitry is inside the chip. Two complete tester channels are integrated into each ISL55161. The ISL55161 is pin and functionally compatible with Venus4.
