Bit Error Rate Tester (BERT) and Extension Modules

Bit Error Rate Tester (BERT) and Extension Modules

SHF bit pattern generators (BPG) and error analyzers (EA) form a future-proof bit error rate tester (BERT) which supports 100 Gigabit Ethernet developments based on multiple 28/32 Gbps and 56/60 Gbps channels  for  40/43 Gbps (OC-768), 28 Gbps CEI, Infiniband, Fiber channels as well as parallel channel data-com. The SHF 12104 A and SHF 11104 A are worldwide the first and still the only BPG and EA delivering a speed of up to 60 Gbps per channel!

Our optical transmitters allow the generation of optical signals of up to 256 Gbps. In addition to the well-known ASK format (also known as OOK), we also produce instruments for the generation of DPSK, DQPSK, DP-QPSK, QAM and duobinary signals.

There are two form factors available:

  • For applications where speed, signal quality and flexibility are the key factors, SHF’s plug-in modules to be hosted by a mainframe are the right choice. The mainframe is is controlled over an Ethernet connection by an external computer.
  • SHF’s compact bench-top series provides a high performance signal generation solution to the cost-sensitive industry. The minimal power consumption and the light weight make it perfectly suited e.g. for on-wafer tests.
