SPG – SyntheSys Research Pattern Generators

SPG – SyntheSys Research Pattern Generators
12.50Gbps (Max. Data Rate)
SyntheSys Research introduces the latest member of the BERTScope family. The BERTScope SPG is a BERTScope pattern generator with the ability to add stress impairments to an internal or external clock. This makes it a cost-effective solution for testing in applications where non-BER measurements are used to calibrate the DUT, and BER is measured by the DUT itself or a legacy BERT. It is also ideal for production testing where stress is to be set up for multiple test stations.

Cost-effective stress generation for receiver jitter tolerance compliance testing for standards such as:
•Serial ATA
•PCI Express
•Fibre Channel 2x, 4x, 10x

The instrument provides calibrated amounts of common stress impairments. For ISI insertion there is the BERTScope Differential ISI Board to provide a known, well behaved frequency response impairment unhindered by suck outs and other response issues associated with low quality switching.

External sinusoidal interference (SI) output is designed to drive a JDSU OPTX10 reference optical transmitter for 10GbE receiver stress testing.
•Data generator from 0.1 to 12.5 Gb/s covering all popular high speed standards
•Calibrated insertion of the following stress types: ◦Sinusoidal Jitter (SJ)
◦Sinusoidal Interference (SI)
◦Bounded Uncorrelated (PRBS) Jitter (BUJ)
◦Random Jitter (RJ)

•Flexible sub-rate clock outputs with large selection of divider choices for driving devices under test
•Stressing of an external clock, including one with Spread Spectrum Clocking (SSC) for serial bus testing
•Full rate jittered clock output for driving additional legacy pattern generators for extra test flexibility
•Flexible pattern generation with intuitive RAM pattern editing and a library of common standards patterns such as Fibre Channel, and Serial-ATA
