 Bit Error Rate Tester

BERT 1001/1005 Series

The BERT is 2 or 4-channel PPG and Error Detector for the design, characterization and production of optical transceivers and opto-electrical components at data rates up to 30 Gb/s.

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

Programmable deemphasis and CTLE processor

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

Built-in clock recovery

4-channel simultaneous testing in a Integrated CDR makes the BERT a versatile and easy-to-use instrument. No need for additional clock recovery hardware.

Internal clock synthesizer

An integrated clock synthesizer for additional convenience and hassle free operation.

Single platform testing

Conduct all your DUT characterization on one platform and spend less time switching cables and patchcords between instruments.

Extremely high channel density in PXI systems

With up to 4-channels per single slot PXIe module, fit up to 68 synchronized channels per single PXIe mainframe.

Simple control with intuitive GUI

Save time and reduce complexity with the easy-to-use GUI. Control all channels and functions from its single panel interface.
