BERTWave Series Remote Control Operation Manual
Version: 15th Edition
The recent rapid increases in data volumes at network equipment, servers, and storage due to increasing use of smartphones, cloud computing, FTTx rollout, video streaming, etc., seem likely to increase even further in future. To cope with demand, many appliances and facilities are using digital signals exceeding the Gbit/s band. Dealing with these high-speed signals requires paying attention not only to the digital aspects but also to analog-type behavior, and care is required in choosing tools for monitoring these signals. This document discusses the key points when handling digital signals exceeding 10 Gbit/s from the perspective of measurement tools.

This document explains how to measure the extinction ratio using sampling oscilloscopes; it is necessary because the measured value must be synchronized with the measuring instrument acting as the reference. The measurement method, Correction Factor calculation and input procedure are described using the MP2100A BERTWave as an example.

This document explains some typical remote sequences making use of the MP2100A functions and speed. Using the remote sequences described in this document and selecting the best commands for optical module production from the MP2100A embedded remote commands will help you configure an easy-to-use efficient optical module test system.
The all-in-one MP2100A BERTWave series supporting simultaneous BER and eye-pattern measurements is ideal for both R&D and manufacturing tests because it increases efficiency and cuts measurement costs by eliminating time consuming setup.
Product Introduction for the MP2100A BERTWave Series
Simultaneous BER measurements, Eye/Pulse analysis and Jitter analysis using BERTWave increase efficiency and cut measurement time by eliminating time consuming setup. Fully supported LTE CPRI v4.1 bit rates (6.14G, 4.92G, 3.07G, 2.46G, 1.23 Gbit/s) make the BERTWave ideal for LTE CPRI optical transceiver mobile evaluation.
Ideal probe for GHz-band sampling oscilloscope, Choice of 10:1 or 20:1 attenuation ratio, Low capacity input ideal for monitoring high-speed signal waveforms, Short input ground lead ideal for high-frequency circuit evaluation
The MP2100A BERTWave is a new-concept measuring instrument. Simultaneous BER and EYE/Pulse Scope measurements using this all-in-one tester increase efficiency and cut measurement costs by eliminating time-consuming setup. The MP2100A BERTWave series with excellent cost-performance is ideal for both R&D and manufacturing tests.

The eye pattern is a useful tool for assessing the integrity of digital signals. The ones and zeroes of a data stream are superimposed to form an eye pattern, providing a good representation of how the data has been affected by a transmission link. Statistical measurements such as extinction ratio and Q-factor are often performed on the eye pattern for compliance testing of devices and transmission paths. These provide good pass/fail criteria, but lend little information as to what may be degrading the signal path.
To cope with the rapid increases in data volumes, data centers are introducing high-speed interconnects between servers with transmission speeds faster than 10 Gbit/s. However, in conflict with these speed increases, there is increasing demand for lower power consumption as well as cost reductions. Furthermore, higher jitter levels and degraded waveforms are becoming a problem. Various measuring instruments, such as sampling scopes (Eye Pattern analyzer) and BERTs are being used to classify and analyze jitter components, such as DJ, RJ, etc., that affect communications quality over Fibre Channel, Infiniband, 10GbE, USB, PCI, etc., high-speed serial transmission standards used in data communications and computing.
The MP2100A BERTWave series supports signal source (PPG), sampling oscilloscope, and BER measurement functions. Installing the MX210002A Transmission Analysis Software in the all-in-one MP2100A makes waveform, Eye Margin, BER and S21 measurements simple and fast.
