Product Announcement from Centellax, Inc.
The system can be used as a bit error rate tester for many different applications, including characterization and production test of components and low-level systems. The jitter injection and clock chirping features allow compliance testing to a wide range of datacom standards, including PCI express, infiniband, serial ATA, and others.
Key benefits and features:
Operates from 500Mbps to 12.5Gbps
Integrated jitter source for stressed eye testing
Spread Spectrum Clocking for compliance testing
Configurable with a clock recovery unit
Very low-cost alternative to other systems
Modular solution allows functional additions later
Differential or single-ended connections to DUT
System controlled by GPIB remote interface
PRBS patterns: 7, 10, 15, 23, 31
Mark/space density (ratio of 0's to 1's): 1/2, 1/4, 1/8
