Anritsu MP1800A Bit Error Rate Tester
The Signal Quality Analyzer MP1800A is a highly expandable, plug-in, modular-type, bit error rate tester (BERT). It incorporates a Pulse Pattern Generator (PPG) module for generating the highest-quality, highest-amplitude signals in the industry, as well as an Error Detector (ED) module with the highest input sensitivity available. The platform supports signal analyses, including Burst pattern, Bathtub Jitter and Eye Diagram measurements. Various types of jitter, such as SJ, RJ, BUJ, SSC, etc., can be generated using the built-in jitter modulation source, supporting device Jitter Tolerance tests.
The MP1800A BERT supports a wide range of bit rates from 0.1 to 32.1 Gbit/s for signal integrity analyses for various applications, such as 100 GbE (25Gx4), OTU-4 (28Gx4), 32G DP-QPSK, CEI-28G, 32G FC, Infiniband EDR (26G), etc. Additionally, combining the MP1800A with the MP1821A MUX and MP1822A DEMUX supports Bit Error Rate tests up to 56 Gbit/s, enabling easy upgrades to support next-generation applications, such as CEI-56G-VSR.
The number of channels per MP1800A-series PPG or ED module can be selected from 1ch, 2ch or 4ch, supporting multichannel synchronization for up to 8 channels at 32 Gbit/s. As a result, each channel of AOC, CFP, CXP, QSFP+, etc., modules can be measured simultaneously, enabling crosstalk and skew tolerance evaluation tests.
