BERT analyzer supports real-time measurement of FEC symbol errors
ANRITSU 116-Gbit/s PAM4 Error Detector (ED) MU196040B module expands its Forward Error Correction (FEC) analysis capability for the Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A series bit error rate testers (BERTS). BERT supports real-time measurement of FEC symbol errors, providing design engineers a single-instrument solution to more efficiently evaluate next-generation 400GbE and 800GbE high-speed devices and transceivers. Product features best-in-class input-sensitivity performance, as well as the real-time capability to detect FEC symbol errors based on the 400GbE FEC standard. In addition to conventional bit error rate (BER) measurement, the unit also supports jitter tolerance measurements for assessing error correction capability using FEC, as required by transmissions using high-speed PAM4 signals.
