Hi-speed test equipment provider Multilane SAL has recently unveiled an all-new test platform under the name ML4004 Time Domain Analyzer, representing a breakthrough in time domain test and measurement applications.
The TDA incorporates the functionality of a single channel Bit Error Rate Tester. It includes a single channel digital sampling scope and an integrated CDR enclosed in a bench-top shell that could fit in the hand. An all-new GUI allows users to communicate with the BERT portion and performs eye captures and measurements simultaneously in the same window.
Featuring an intrinsic jitter level of 200 fs , the TDA platform will have the capability of exceeding the 30Gb/s per lane threshold in time for a new age of hi-speed characterization. Thanks to CDR capability, the scope can support bandwidths up to 50Ghz, while being able to perform full jitter decomposition, implement software based filters and sample an incoming signal without the need of a clock . The BERT portion is customizable to offer high voltage output or jitter generation.
Multilane is a leading supplier of 100G production test instruments and interconnect test products for the optical networking and cloud computing infrastructures.

QSFP-DD Passive Loopback Module ML4062 is used for testing QSFP-DD transceiver ports under board level tests. By substituting a full-featured QSFP-DD transceiver with the ML4062, the electrical loopback will provide a cost effective low loss method for QSFP-DD port testing.
The ML4062 is packaged in a standard MSA housing that is compatible with all QSFP-DD ports. Transmitting data from the host is electrically routed (internal to the loopback module) to receive data outputs and send them back to the host. It provides an economical way to exercise QSFP-DD ports during R&D validation, production testing, and field testing.The ML4062 provides 9 power classes using a customer supplied +3.3V voltage supply .
ML4057 provides an easy and effective solution for programming and characterization of CFP8 modules. It includes a complete user friendly GUI supporting all features defined by CFP8 MSA . The latter simplifies the configuration process. Current sense circuit is also included on the Host for checking modules’ power class.
ML4058 breakout module can be used to test and to characterize line cards with 16x25G CFP8 host interfaces.
ML4059 is used for Testing CFP8 ports working at 16x25Gbps. It is packaged in MSA compliant housing offering excellent heat dissipation. The module can be programmed to different power levels through MDIO interface; thus, emulating all CFP8 power classes.
ML4046 is used for testing uQSFP transceiver ports under board level tests. Substituting a full-featured uQSFP transceiver with the ML4046 provides a cost effective low loss method for uQSFP port testing via electrical loopback. It can emulate power classes from 1 to 7 using a +3.3V voltage supply.
ML4044 is designed to provide an efficient and easy method for programming and testing 100G uQSFP transceivers and active optical cables. It includes a complete user-friendly GUI supporting all features defined by uQSFP MSA. This simplifies configuration processes to enable intuitive memory map programming and testing..
ML4045 Breakout module can be used for testing and characterizing 4x28G line cards and host interfaces.
