The Signal Quality Analyzer (SQA) MP1800A series makes it the perfect solution for satisfying customers' bit-error rate measurement needs.
The growing demands of cloud computing and high-definition video streaming are driving increases in server and storagetransmission speeds as well as in the transmission capacity of core networks. To meet these needs, the transmission speedsof physical-layer devices and modules are increasing, making signal integrity analysis ever more important in assuring quality. Installing the 28/32G Multi-Channel PPG and ED Module supports PCBs with high-speed interconnects up to 32.1 Gbit/s, BERmeasurements for device R&D, and simultaneous measurement of crosstalk between multi-channels, for more accurate signalintegrity analysis.
The Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A is a modular design offering optional functions for easy customization to users’ requirements. As a result, the configuration can be tailored to budget timing while the excellent expandability offers easy addition of new future functions. This Selection Guide explains the modules and options, as well as their selection conditions and possible combinations. Please use it to check the best configuration meeting the measurement needs.

The MP1800A/MP1900A series is a total measurement solution for assuring standards compliance of high-speed digital interfaces, such as PCI Express, USB, Thunderbolt, etc., at every stage from development through to mass-production, and cutting the time for verifying Jitter test margins.
This material explain the equipment connections and system setup of the 64 Gbaud PAM4 DAC G0374A and the Signal Quality Analyzer MP1800A.
This document describes how the MU181000A/B is configured as well as how to operate and maintain it.
The Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A and the Signal Quality Analyzer MP1800A series is ideal for evaluating 400GbE optical transceivers and optical modulators using the 32 Gbit/s PPG MU18302xA, and expandable 32 Gbaud Power PAM4 Converter G0375A with high PAM4 output amplitude and independent 3 Eye level control functions.
64 Gbaud 2-bit DAC with MUX G0361A in combination with the Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A or the Signal Quality MP1800A series supports generation of wideband analog signals, such as high-baud-rate PAM4 signals.
In high-speed digital signals, a scrambling method is used with signals such as PRBS patterns to maintain a fixed transmitted signal DC Offset, to keep the ratio of 1s and 0s in the transmitted pattern, and to avoid too many contiguous 1s or 0s. An effective way of understanding the product characteristics is to run tests of Rx tolerance to contiguous 1s and 0s in an environment where such contiguous 1s and 0s rarely occur.
It is sometimes necessary for chip / module vendors to bias devices under test (DUTs) using an external Bias-T. These useful tools provide a dynamic method for engineers to vary both RF and DC conditions applied to the input of their DUTs. However, both simulations and empirical data have demonstrated that voltage transients can be produced under certain conditions that may be damaging to PPG outputs.
This document offers several recommendations by Anritsu’s R&D team for the safe usage of Bias T’s with Anritsu PPGs.
Technical Note for the Trends and Issues in Ultra-High Speed Transmission Technologies (MP1800A Signal Quality Analyzer)
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.
