Abstract Testing digital hardware often requires a high speed transmission and recep-tion of binary data. The transmitted test signal has to simulate the random characteristic of a digital signal, but at the same time it has to be predicable. Pseudo random binary sequences (PRBSs) fulfills just this, and are widely used for transmission tests. This thesis investigates the feasibility of imple-menting a 40 Gb/s PRBS test module, based on standard FPGAs, capable of generating test signals for a 40 Gb/s multiplex/demultiplex module. The entire design process, ranging from the initial overall demands, to the final tests conducted on the hardware, will be described. Error free transmission and reception of a 2 31 ¡ 1 PRBS on several of the data channels, will be demonstrated. It will be shown, that FPGAs indeed are viable choices for designs, that require high speed transmission and reception of data across a parallel interface.
