Simultaneous and Parallel BER Measurements up to 12.5 Gb/s per Channel
The MP1775A is a Pulse Pattern Generator with 4 channels of parallel data output lines. Each channel has the capability of generating a signal up to 12.5 Gbps . Simultaneous BER testing and analysis up to 4 channels is possible when used with the MP1776A 4-Channel Error Detector. Independent memory capacity for each channel enables you to program user-defined patterns for specific testing, and a variety of PRBS patterns (inverted and non-inverted) up to 231-1 bits long are available as standard.
Anritsu's core competence and expertise in high speed BER testing and the high performance technology of our popular single channel 12.5 Gbps BERT system are built into this 4-channel Pulse Pattern Generator. Its excellent data output waveform, low jitter, fast rise time/fall time, independent setting of programmable patterns, and 231-1 PRBS patterns for each channel make it an ideal signal source for the evaluation and characterization of 10 Gbps WDM equipment, modules, and electrical/optical devices.
To protect your future investments in 40G development, the MP1775A 4-Channel PPG can be used as part of Anritsu’s ME7760B 43.5 BER Test System or ME7780A 48G BER Test System. These 40G systems also contain a 4-Channel Error Detector, 4x1 and 1x4 Mux/Demux units, and an external signal source.
With the ongoing R&D into 40+ Gbps transmission systems, there is a high demand for test instruments for testing SONET/SDH frames. To meet this requirement, Anritsu's MX177601A software is optionally available for use with the MP1775A for generating SONET/SDH frames as well as CID patterns for stress testing clock recovery circuits. Optional internal clock and front panel keys on the MP1775A make it easy to use and eliminate the need for an external synthesizer or PC. Remote control operation utilizing SCPI command sets is available via GPIB or a parallel interface.
