Keysight delivers the first bit error ratio test solution for validating 1.6 Terabits per second transmission
Keysight Technologies, Inc. has introduced a new 120 Giga Baud (GBd) High-Performance Bit Error Ratio Test (BERT) solution (M8050A) for validating next generation chip deployments of up to 120 GBd for 1.6T (or one trillion bits per second) market with unachieved signal integrity.
Digital development and senior validation engineers are challenged with higher loss and distortions when moving from 112 Gbps per lane to 224 Gbps per lane. The new M8050A is designed to overcome these challenges with high signal integrity enabling more test margin. This allows customers to move to next generation 1.6T designs while maintaining the flexibility needed to quickly adopt the M8050A to new requirements in the future.
Keysight's new M8050A BERT delivers application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) technology designed by Keysight to optimize the design to the requirements of the instrument. This offers the following key customer benefits:
- A deep level of integration simplifies setup and delivers reliable verification of designs at all speed grades with the combination of 120 GBd Pattern Generator, coupled with high signal integrity.
- Saves time and investment by providing flexibility with license upgradeable hardware when test requirements change. Software extensions within the M8070B BERT system software open the application space to support upcoming technologies with full connection to automation software.
- Keysight's Infiniium 80 GHz UXR oscilloscope as an acquisition-based Error-Analyzer in combination with M8050A, provides a comprehensive bit error ratio tester up to 120 GBd that supports non return to zero (NRZ) and pulse amplitude modulation (PAM) 4, as well as PAM 6/8, which is likely required in 1.6T environment.
- Keysight's industry experts, coupled with a proven automation framework, deliver test consulting for the latest and emerging markets with close connection to standards bodies.
