company Anritsu has unveiled its 28G/32G multi-channel modules for
its MP1800A Signal Quality Analyzer (SQA) BERT system.
The 28G/32G multi-channel modules offer
high-speed interconnect interfaces up to 32 Gbit/s. The modules have the
ability to synchronize up to 12 Pulse Pattern Generators (PPGs) in a single
mainframe, along with intrinsic jitter and input sensitivity.
The company said that its MP1800A is suited
for DP-QPSK 100G long haul applications where four synchronized PPGs with
precise skew control are required. The MP1800A SQA is a modular BERT that
combines a built-in PPG that supports output of high-quality, high-amplitude
The MP1800A SQA offers an Error Detector
(ED) with high input sensitivity supporting signal analysis, such as bath tub
and Q measurements, and a Jitter Modulation Source for generating various
jitters, such as SJ/RJ/BUJ/SSC, and supporting jitter tolerance tests.
Anritsu claims that by combining the MP1800A
with the 28G/32G PPG module (MU183020A, MU183021A) and 28G/32G ED module
(MU183040A, MU183041A) allows the BERT to support signal integrity analysis up
to 32 Gbit/s for various applications.
In addition to 100 GbE, the new
configuration can analyze OTU-4, 32G DP-QPSK, CEI-28G, 32G Fibre Channel, and
Infiniband EDR designs.
The MU183020A 28G/32G PPG supports output
for one or two channels, while the MU183021A supports simultaneous output for
The MU183040A 28G/32G ED supports one or
two measurement channels, while the MU183041A supports simultaneous input for
The MP1800A can also be integrated with the
MP1825B 4Tap Emphasis, which adds four taps to PPG signals up to 28.1 Gbit/s,
for various pre- and post-cursors.
Company launched ISDB-T and DVB-T/H bit error rate (BER) measurement options
for its MS2712E/MS2713E Spectrum Master handheld spectrum analyzers and
MT8212E/MT8213E Cell Master base station analyzers.
