Module Configurations for Multi-channel BER and Jitter Measurements

The MP1800A SQA is a modular BERT with built-in Pulse Pattern Generator (PPG) supporting output of high quality, high amplitude signals, Error Detector (ED) with high input sensitivity supporting signal analysis, such as Bathtub and Eye Diagram measurements, and a Jitter Modulation Source for generating various types of jitter, such as SJ/RJ/BUJ/SSC, and supporting Jitter Tolerance tests.


Wideband bit rates from up to 32.1 Gbit/s Multi-channel synchronized pattern generation and simultaneous BER analysis Selection of channels per PPG/ED Module



Anritsu Signal Integrity Test Solutions for Every Need

Adding the 32 Gbit/s module to the MP1800A Signal Quality Analyzer supports evaluation of the physical layer for optical modules and high-speed interconnects from 0.1 Gbit/s to 32 Gbit/s. Combined installation with the synthesizer and Jitter modules supports a test environment without external signal generator. Moreover, powerful signal integrity tests at up to 28.1 Gbit/s are supported by linked operation with the MP1825B 4Tap Emphasis.

① Supports up to 8 channels in 32 Gbit/s Band

The 4ch PPG and 4ch ED synthesizer configuration supports all-in-one evaluation of 4ch TRx devices, cutting total costs and saving space


② Signal Integrity Analysis using Jitter, Data Delay and 4Tap Emphasis

Jitter generation, Crosstalk tests using Data Delay, and Emphasis generation are essential tools at signal integrity analysis of high-speed interconnects. As the ideal solution, the all-in-one MP1800A supports a 2ch PPG and 2ch ED configuration with Jitter modulator, synthesizer, and indvidual variable delay functions, while linked operation with the compact MP1825B 4Tap Emphasis gets as close as possible to the DUT.
