KEYSIGHT TECHNOLOGIES M8050A Giga Baud (GBd) High-Performance Bit Error Ratio Test (BERT) solution validates next generation chip deployments of up to 120GBd for 1.6T (or one trillion bits per second) market with unachieved signal integrity. Digital development and senior validation engineers are challenged with higher loss and distortions when moving from 112 Gbps per lane to 224 Gbps per lane. Unit is designed to overcome these challenges with high signal integrity enabling more test margin. This allows customers to move to next generation 1.6T designs while maintaining the flexibility needed to quickly adopt the M8050A to new requirements in the future. BERT delivers application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) technology designed by Keysight to optimize the design to the requirements of the instrument. This offers the following key customer benefits.
