Test & Measurement: Multigigabit/s Analyzers Combine BER Testing, Eye-Diagram Analysis

Bit-error-rate (BER) pattern generation and analysis merges with eye-diagram analysis on the BertScope 100-Mbit/s to 7.5-Gbit/s 7500A and 100-Mbit/s to 12.5-Gbit/s 12500A analyzers. Using the company's BitAnalyzer Error Location analysis, they swiftly identify pattern- and frequency-dependent errors. Proprietary (sub-picosecond) high-resolution self-calibrating delay lines enable accurate measurement and separation of jitter into deterministic and random components. Priced at $95,000, the 7500A analyzer can be upgraded to a 12500A at an additional charge. The 12500A analyzer costs $135,000.
