RICHARDSON, Texas, Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Anritsu Company introduces a
32 Gbit/s extension option for its MP1825B 4Tap Emphasis that features
industry leading Tr/Tf speeds and low jitter for up to four taps, allowing it
to create emphasis that matches every industry standard. The MP1825B with the
new option can be configured with the Anritsu MP1800A BERT signal quality
analyzer to accurately measure the performance of high-speed interconnects
used in Next Generation Network (NGN) applications in a cost- and
time-efficient manner.


To shorten development time, the MP1825B control software automatically
calculates the optimum emphasis settings based on S21 parameters created from
measurements taken with a vector network analyzer (VNA) or with a simulator
using the Emphasis Optimization function. The software, combined with the
overall high performance of the MP1825B, helps to ensure precise measurements
while reducing test time.

Signal integrity engineers designing high-speed backplanes, cables, and
interconnects can benefit from the inherent advantages of the MP1825B 4Tap
Emphasis to verify the performance of their products. It supports easy changes
to the pre-emphasis waveform amplitude, offset, and amplitude of each tap for
effective evaluation of high-speed interface characteristics. Because each tap
can be changed independently, the effect of pre-emphasis can be confirmed with
high precision. 

Designed with a compact remote head, a shorter cable can be used to connect
the MP1825B to the device under test (DUT) to ensure high signal quality by
minimizing cable effects. In addition to being compatible with the Anritsu
MP1800A BERT, the MP1825B can be used with other BERTS, as well as customer
devices and signal sources.

The MP1825B matches the high performance of the MP1800A BERT in signal
integrity applications. The MP1800A features an internal pulse pattern
generator (PPG) and high-input-sensitivity error detector (ED) module, each of
which can be configured with one-, two-, or four-channels to support
multi-channel synchronization of up to eight channels at 32 Gbit/s. The
MP1800A BERT also has a built-in jitter modulation source for generating
various jitter types, including SJ, RJ, BUJ, SSC.
