Combination of 4ch Sampling Oscilloscope and Bit Error Rate Tester

Anritsu MP2110A option12 April 2019 – Anritsu introducted a four-channel (4ch) sampling oscilloscope option for the BERTWave MP2110A, enabling integration of multi-channel oscilloscope and BERT (Bit Error Rate Tester) in an-all-in-one unit. With this new oscilloscope option, Anritsu further extends its line of test solutions for development and production of optical modules.

Backbone networks and data centers increasingly use 100G Ethernet to meet anticipated traffic demand for services such as 5G and are considering implementing 400G Ethernet. The functionality of the optical modules used in these networks includes NRZ/PAM4 signaling, multiple channels, and different wavelengths, which previously required expensive high-performance test systems. The pressure to reduce pricing requires more cost-effective test solutions that retain flexibility to support future technologies.

The new 4ch oscilloscope option halves the unit cost per channel, while maintaining the same performance, enabling manufacturers to remain price-competitive.

With genuine multichannel support in hardware as well as software, the new oscilloscope option enables high-efficiency measurement, not only of multichannel modules, but also of multiple single channel modules for high-usability evaluation environments.

The new 4ch option offers a high-performance, economical, all-in-one instrument configuration for combined 1/2/4 channel oscilloscope and BERT, making it the ideal, flexible and cost effective test solution for both development and manufacturing applications.

The BERTWaveTM MP2110A Features:

Built-in oscilloscope and BERT with selection of 1/2/4 channels for development and manufacturing of 25G to 400G optical devices

Sampling oscilloscope: World’s highest sensitivity supporting wide optical signal analysis from 25 Gbaud NRZ to 53 Gbaud PAM4 with built-in clock recovery option

BERT: Same waveform quality and sensitivity as R&D module, with clock recovery built-in as standard

Fast stable measurement using built-in PC

Target Applications:

Evaluating Physical Layer performance of 25G to 400G optical transceiver modules, optical cables and their component parts, designed for use in data centers, Core/Metro networks, 4G/5G mobile backhaul, and 5G mobile fronthaul
