PAM4 Bit Error Rate Tester.

Available in MATRIQ and PXI platforms
 PAM4 Bit Error Rate Tester


The BERT-1102 is an 8-channel PPG and Error Detector for the design, characterization and manufacturing test of optical transceivers and opto-electrical components with symbol rates up to 29 GBaud/s in both NRZ and PAM4 formats.

With scalability and exceptional signal fidelity, it is a cost-effective test solution for up to 400 Gb/s communication eco-systems.

Programmable deemphasis and CTLE processor

Programmable 7-tap PPG Tx de-emphasis and error detector receiver continuous-time linear equalizer (CTLE) allow the user to compensate for finite coaxial cable interconnect loss.

Single platform testing

Conduct all your DUT characterization on one platform (optical and electrical testing can be integrated in PXIe) and spend less time switching cables and patchcords between instruments.

Built-in clock recovery

Each error detect channel has its own independent, simultaneous, lock-and-data recovery (CDR); this makes BERT testing a versatile and easy-to-use instrument. There is no need for additional clock recovery hardware.

Simple control with CohesionUI

Save time and reduce complexity with the easy-to-use CohesionUI graphical user interface. Control all channels and functions from its single panel interface (including all other Quantifi Photonics modules in the system from the same intuitive interface).

Internal clock synthesizer

An integrated clock synthesizer is provided internally as part of the PPG for additional convenience and hassle-free operation. No external clock generator is required.
