Multi-Channel BERT

Model: keysight (agilent) M8030A
Description: Multi-Channel BERT
Data Sheet PDF: keysight (agilent) M8030A

Key Features & Specifications

  • Data rates up to 8.5 and 16 Gb/s
  • Up to 10 BERT pattern generator and analyzer channels in a 14-slot AXIe chassis
  • Clock synchronization between all channels
  • Deskew each channel individually
  • Integrated 8 tap de-emphasis, positive and negative adjustable per channel 
  • Integrated and adjustable jitter and Intersymbol Interference (ISI) per channel
  • Common user and remote interface software (M8070A) for M8030A multi-channel BERT and J-BERT M8020A
  • Built-in clock recovery and equalization per channel

The M8030A extends the J-BERT M8020A to a real multi-channel BERT supporting up to 10 pattern generators and 10 error detectors (ED) to get multi-channel application test like PCIe and PON. Wherever multi-channel measurements are required in order to speed up throughput or test under real application conditions, the M8030A multi-channel BERT is the right tool.

You can protect your investment by using the M8041A and M8051A modules both within the M8020A and M8030A BERT configurations, and keep up with your test needs by adding modules as and when required.

Target applications

The M8030A multi-channel BERT is designed for R&D and test engineers who characterize and verify compliance of chips, devices, boards and systems with multiple I/O ports up to 16 Gb/s in the consumer, computer and communications industry. Typical applications are PCIe multi-channel test, PON multi ONU system test as well as XAUI and GAUI multi-lane test.
