According to its maker, the 5-Gbit DJ502 module is a platform-independent jitter and timing system that's 250 times faster than the competition, yet costs only $33,000. Measuring just 3.8 by 4.2 by 1.1 in., it plugs directly into any standard interface connectors on any device interface board. It consists of multiple processing engines local to both the device under test (DUT) and the on-board measurement engines. Its patented core technology combines five timing-generation units, five timing-measurement units, and DSP hardware in the compact module. It can be used for both production testing and device characterization.
