MP1800A Signal Quality Analyzer (SQA) BERT system

Product Announcement from Anritsu Company

MP1800A Signal Quality Analyzer (SQA) BERT system-Image

The MP1800 Signal Quality Analyzer (SQA) supports direct bit error rate (BER) measurements and quality analyses of serial digital signals from 100 Mbit/s to 56 Gbit/s. Its modular design offers a flexible cost-effective solution for measuring at the optimum BER.

Multi-channel parallel testing is supported by the all-in-one SQA incorporating Pulse Pattern Generators (PPG) and Error Detectors (ED). One-touch key operations simplify complex searches for input thresholds and phase adjustments, making the MP1800 perfect for R&D into 100 GE systems, optical modulators, high-speed logic, ICs, digital systems, and PONs.


  • Wide bandwidth from 100 Mbit/s to 56 Gbit/s
  • High-quality, Low-jitter Waveforms
  • Up to 28.1 Gbit/s Jitter Tolerance Tests (SJ, RJ, BUJ, SSC)
  • High Input Sensitivity and Wide Phase Margin - Signal Quality Analysis
  • Burst Measurement for PON and Loop Circuit measurements
  • Optical Interfaces
  • Multi-channel Parallel BER test for X-Talking evaluation

The MP1800 Series provides solutions for:
