Signal Quality Analyzer-R

MP1900A series is an 8-slot modular, high-performance BERT supporting all-in-one Physical layer measurements of both high-speed network interfaces as NRZ and PAM4, and PCI Express/USB, bus interfaces

Featured Content: FEC Test Application Note

To cope with increasing data traffic caused by the widespread popularity of smartphones and mobile terminals, data-center network interfaces are being transitioned to the faster 200 GbE/400 GbE/800 GbE standards, while communications-equipment interconnects are adopting PCI Express Gen5 supporting faster speeds of 32 Gbit/s; multi-channel technologies are also being deployed.
Anritsu’s Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A series is a high-performance BERT with 8 slots for modules, such as PPG, ED and Jitter/Noise Generator, to expand measurement applications supporting signal integrity analyses of ever-faster devices. In addition to Physical layer measurement functions for broadband network interfaces, the all-in-one MP1900A supports PCI Express bus, etc., interface measurements.
