RICHARDSON, Texas, Oct.28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Anritsu Company introduces a
high-sensitivity error detector (ED) for its MP1800A BERT signal quality
analyzer that supports multichannel BER measurements up to 32.1 Gbit/s.
Featuring industry best Rx sensitivity and the fastest Auto Adjust function on
the market, the new ED, when configured with the MP1800A, provides signal
integrity engineers with a highly accurate test solution to verify that their
high-speed backplanes, cables, and interconnects are in compliance with
industry standards, such as 100GBASE-SR4 and 100GBASE-KR4.


Delivering a wideband bit rate from 2.4 to 32.1 Gbit/s, the new ED offers Rx
sensitivity of typically 10 mV. It features an Auto Adjust function that
permits simultaneous search in less than one second and automatically detects
the optimum BER voltage threshold and phase levels for up to eight channels,
to improve test efficiency and lower cost-of-test.

Users can select either one-, two- or four-channel inputs. Up to eight
channels can be supported by adding more modules to a single MP1800A BERT. The
extended functions of the MP1800A created by the new ED support simultaneous
measurement of low-amplitude, small-EYE opening DUT outputs for multiple
channels. Engineers can use the test solution to achieve more accurate and
ideal signal quality analysis for various applications at speeds up to 32.1
Gbit/s, including 100GbE (25Gx4), OUT-4 (28Gx4), CEI-28G, 32G Fibre Channel,
Infiniband EDR, server/high-performance computer interconnects, and Active
Optical Cables (AOC) based on silicon photonics technologies.
