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 and 400 GbE standards, while communications-equipment interconnects are adopting PCI Express Gen4 supporting faster speeds of 16 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 a 32 Gbit/s Multi-channel 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.

[Target Applications]
100 GbE/200 GbE/400 GbE, CEI-25G/28G/56G/112G, InfiniBand EDR/HDR, Fibre Channel, PCI Express Gen 1 to 5, Thunderbolt 3, USB3.1 Gen1/2, Optical modules, SERDES, AOC, High-speed Interconnects
