Description

The Agilent ParBERT 13.5Gb/s modules are the ideal solution for testing high-speed communication ports, components, chips and modules for a wide range of technologies and applications for the semiconductor and communication industry.

The Agilent N4872A 13.5 Gb/s generator module and N4873A 13.5 Gb/s analyzer module is each one VXI slot wide and requires the E4809A Central Clock module. The ParBERT 13.5 Gb/s modules are able to generate and analyze differential or single-ended signals at data rates from 620 Mb/s to 13.5 Gb/s.

The ParBERT 13.5 Gb/s modules make the Agilent ParBERT 81250 ideal for addressing following applications:

  • 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10.3 Gb/s and 9.953 Gb/s)
  • 10-Gigabit Fiber Channel (10.51875 Gb/s)
  • Computation and Data Distribution at 6.25 - 6.4 Gb/s (Standards included: Infiniband, Serial ATA, PCI-Express, Firewire, Rapid I/O, Backplanes, Memory buses)
  • OC-768/STM-256 (4x10.8 Gb/s)
  • OC-192/STM-64 (1x10.8 Gb/s and 16x675 Mb/s)
  • Multiple serial OC-192 devices in manufacturing concurrently

 

  • Generates pseudo random word sequences (PRWS), memory based patterns and standard PRBS up to 2³¹-1
  • Analyze bit error ratios with user-defined data, PRBS or mixed data from parallel ports
  • Generate and analyze differential or single-ended signals at data rates from 620 Mb/s up to 13.5 Gb/s
