SerDes Wizard (VX.2.3)

I have been SerDes Wizard to test a diff pair.


Bellow is a list of steps:


1. Open a board file

2. Defined a pair under test as a diff pair using the "differential Pair" tab

3. Started the wizard, selected the pair, selected the protocol - 10KR

4. Run the test


Test has a couple failings. One of them - Near End Cross talk Mask.


I believe that according to the 10KR standard, a near end is defined as a crosstalk interference between the  two diff pairs.

I don't understand why the Near End reported in a case where the only one diff pair is defined.


It is possible I am missing something.
