Anritsu Releases 4ch Oscilloscope
Anritsu Extends Product Line for Faster Development and Manufacturing of
100G/400G Optical Modules
Luton, United Kingdom - March 27, 2019 – Anritsu Corporation announces the introduction of the four-channel (4ch) sampling oscilloscope option for the BERTWaveTM MP2110A, enabling integration of multi-channel oscilloscope and BERT (Bit Error Rate Tester) in an-all-in-one unit.
Backbone networks and data centers increasingly use 100G Ethernet to meet anticipated traffic demand for services such as 5G and are considering implementing 400G Ethernet. The functionality of the optical modules used in these networks includes NRZ/PAM4 signaling, multiple channels, and different wavelengths, which previously required expensive high-performance test systems. The pressure to reduce pricing requires more cost-effective test solutions that retain flexibility to support future technologies.
The new 4ch oscilloscope option halves the unit cost per channel, while maintaining the same performance, enabling manufacturers to remain price-competitive.
With genuine multichannel support in hardware as well as software, the new oscilloscope option enables high-efficiency measurement, not only of multichannel modules, but also of multiple single channel modules for high-usability evaluation environments.
The new 4ch option offers a high-performance, economical, all-in-one instrument configuration for combined 1/2/4 channel oscilloscope and BERT, making it the ideal, flexible and cost effective test solution for both development and manufacturing applications.
With this new oscilloscope option, Anritsu further extends its line of test solutions for development and production of optical modules.
