Error detector functions take lead in transmission evaluations

10-07-2020 | Anritsu | Test & Measurement

Anritsu Corporation now offers an FEC symbol capture function and Bathtub test capability for its 116-Gbit/s PAM4 Error Detector (ED) MU196040B, providing more functionality for developers of 400-GbE*1 and 800-GbE*2 devices.


Installed in the company's flagship Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A series, these functions can be downloaded from the MP1900A website.


To meet the needs and support 400G network evolution, the company has added two new features to the device - the FEC symbol capture function to evaluate FEC-based network elements and the PAM4 Bathtub*7 test capability.


The modular device running embedded Windows 10 can easily be expanded. As well as supporting 400-GbE and 800-GbE PAM4, it is a market-leading BERT for multiple high-speed interfaces, incorporating PCI Express Gen5 and USB4, using a full line of modules and application software.






As well as offering more accurate BER measurements, the device assists in shortening development times for high-speed devices and transceivers.
