BERTScope with pattern generation supports 100G communications test
TEKTRONIX BSA286C BERTScope bit error rate tester Series meets 100G testing requirements and provides complete support for standards-compliant testing up to 28.6Gb/s, including error detection, pattern generation and clock recovery. Unit provides sub 300 RJ femtoseconds intrinsic jitter noise floor, delivers accurate BER test and root-cause PHY layer analysis. Unit can be used to perform true jitter measurements on a variety of signals including low probability events, with the added ability to accurately decompose jitter into its random and deterministic components.
