New PAM4 ED makes Anritsu Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A first BERT to support real-time measurement of FEC Symbol Errors
Anritsu Company introduces expanded Forward Error Correction (FEC) analysis capability in its 116-Gbit/s PAM4 Error Detector (ED) MU196040B module for the Signal Quality Analyzer-R MP1900A series bit error rate testers (BERTS). With new ED module, the MP1900A is the first BERT to support real-time measurement of FEC symbol errors, providing design engineers a single-instrument solution to more efficiently evaluate next-generation 400 GbE and 800 GbE high-speed devices and transceivers.
The new PAM ED features best-in-class input-sensitivity performance, as well as the real-time capability to detect FEC symbol errors based on the 400 GbE FEC standard. In addition to conventional bit error rate (BER) measurement, the MP1900A also supports jitter tolerance measurements for assessing error correction capability using FEC, as required by transmissions using high-speed PAM4 signals.
