Clock Recovery Module Offers Multi-Rate Compliance Testing

Groomed for use with the company’s 86100C Infiniium digital communications analyzer (DCA-J), the 83496A debuts as the market’s first optical/electrical clock recovery module capable of performing multi-rate compliance testing. The plug-in module performs clock extraction for waveform analysis with continuous, un-banded tuning from 50 Mb/s to 13.5 Gb/s. Its continuously adjustable loop bandwidth from 30 kHz to 6 MHz makes the module suitable for jitter compliance tests across a wide range of industry standards. The module can function as a Golden PLL by setting the loop bandwidth to the value required for any data rate within its operating range. Other features include a jitter figure of 300 fsRMS. Price starts at $18,000. AGILENT TECHNOLOGIES INC., Palo Alto, CA. (800) 235-0312.
