Bit Error Rate Tester (BERT) for OC-768, 100GbE, 400G
SHF Bit Pattern Generators (BPG), Pulse Pattern Generators (PPG) 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 56/64 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 BPG and EA delivering a speed of more than 60 Gbps per channel!
Going even further (100 Gbps serial and 60 GBaud arbitrary waveform generation)
Our BPGs operate hand in hand with our high speed digital modules. Connecting the BPG to a SHF 603 A Multiplexer raises the serial data rate to ≥ 120 Gbps. A PAM-4 or PAM-8 source is formed by attaching one of our DAC modules. The programming capabilities together with the channel synchronization render the BPG + DAC combination to be a full “remote head” AWG (Arbitrary Waveform Generator) at a speed of up to 60 GSymbols/s.
Two form factors
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 controlled over an Ethernet connection by an external computer.
SHF’s compact bench-top series provide 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.
