Key Features & Specifications


  • Available for 4 to 17 Gb/s or 5 to 32 Gb/s configurations
  • Full data rate error detection
  • PRBS and user definable pattern, common telecom/datacom test patterns
  • Remote head allows placement of signal very close to DUT


  • N4960A Serial BERT 32 and 17 Gb/s

The N4952A is an affordable and compact error detector remote head available in 4 to 17 Gb/s and 5 to 32 Gb/s configurations. Compatible with the N4960A Serial BERT controller, it is the perfect solution to test up to 32 Gb/s per channel for 100 Gigabit Ethernet applications and other high-data rate devices. The N4952A error detector supports PRBS or user patterns and operates up to 32 Gb/s in a single band with no gaps or missing data rates. The remote head allows the test equipment to be located very close to the device under test, eliminating the need for long cables that degrade signal quality.
