Anritsu Company introduces the Bit Master™ MP1026B Eye Pattern Analyzer that allows engineers to conduct highly accurate eye pattern measurements for data rates from 0.1 to 12.5 Gbps. Typically half the price of a high-speed sampling oscilloscope, the MP1026B supports popular OC-192/STM-64 SONET/SDH, 10G Fibre Channel, and 10G Ethernet systems at the physical layer, and can verify the performance of high-speed circuits, transceivers, and transponders, as well as network equipment.

Developed to address the deployment of high-speed networks, the MP1026B can be equipped with a fully internal optical receiver for measuring fiber signals up to 12.5 Gbps, making it well suited for Network Equipment Manufacturer (NEM) applications. The MP1026B also features an automated mask margin tool that calculates percent margin while verifying mask compliance to industry standards. Percent margin is a valuable metric that allows users to quickly identify unit-to-unit variations that may impact quality, repeatability, and performance of components, devices, and equipment.

Augmenting the two channel inputs are new trace math features that allow the MP1026B to conduct eye pattern measurements on both single-ended and differential high-speed signals. In backplane characterization and twisted pair cable applications, the MP1026B is equipped to more easily verify signal integrity using both eye and pulse pattern displays.

Critical time parameters, such as jitter p-p, jitter RMS, rise time, fall time, eye width, and duty cycle distortion, can be quickly verified with single readout displays. Essential amplitude measurements, such as one level, zero level, eye height, eye amplitude, signal-to-noise ratio, and extinction ratio, can be made just as easily. Jitter and mask measurements are performed quickly because measurements are updated at 100 ksamples/sec, and measurement accuracy is assured due to the instrument's low jitter of typically 0.85 ps rms.

Security, Manufacturing Options
For high-security system measurements, the MP1026B can be equipped with a Secure Data option that prevents any setup conditions or measured data from being stored internally. All secure data can only be stored on removable media, such as flash cards or compact disks.

An intelligent ergonomic design allows the MP1026B to be used on both a bench as well as in field applications. Its compact size of 315 W x 211 H x 78 D and light weight of 4 kg means it requires little bench space and is easy to carry, so measurements can be made anytime, anywhere.

The MP1026B delivery is 8-10 weeks ARO.
