Product Description

The new N4902B Serial BERT 7 Gb/s is the industry-first product to specifically address the upcoming needs in the semiconductor and data communication industry. The Serial BERT 7 Gb/s covers frequency ranges from 150 Mb/s to 7 Gb/s providing unmatched signal integrity and analysis capabilities. The N4902B is the industry-first serial BERT product to provide built-in true differential inputs/outputs, clock data recovery (CDR), enhanced jitter capabilities and unrivalled analysis and measurement functionalities for both present and future test needs. With its broad frequency range and new features, Serial BERT 7 Gb/s sets a new standard for serial BER test equipment in the 6 Gb/s domain. The unique new capabilities of the instrument and its ability to address a broad range of applications and technologies in the semiconductor and communication industry will help customers to protect investment made in measurement instrumentation. The N4902B Serial BERT 7 Gb/s is upgradeable to a N4901B Serial BERT 13.5 Gb/s. The new Serial BERT 7 Gbps provides a comprehensive software and measurement suite combining the analysis capabilities of the 71612 and new measurement capabilities known from the 81250 ParBERT platform. Key measurements are: output timing (RJ/DJ Separation, bathtub curve, setup & hold time), output level (Q-factor, average power), eye opening and BER. Features Frequency Range: 150Mb/s - 7 Gb/s True differential data generation and analysis Superior pulse performance Jitter modulation capability: 200ps, DC to 1 GHz Low intrinsic Jitter: < 1ps RMS TYP. Transition Time (10% - 90%)s: < 25ps Integrated CDR: operates in data rate ranges form 1.0- 1.6 Gb/s 2.11 - 3.20 Gb/s, 4.23 - 6.40 Gb/s and 9.9 - 10.9 Gb/s Input Sensitivity: <50mV pp Intuitive Windows XP user interface: easy-to-use, easy-to-learn "Measurement Suite", which offers comprehensive management and analysis features. Expandable software platform, which allows adding new software pieces in the future addressing upcoming trends and applications
