The ML4039B is a fully featured 200G BERT. It has instrument-grade 2.92mm coaxial connectors and covers a wide range of bitrates between 1.25 and 30 GBaud, while supporting both NRZ and PAM-4 coding schemes. The GUI allows you to individually control each TX level, equalization, eye balance, pattern, Gray coding and FEC. The user may also inject error sequences into the stream. The receiver features CTLE and FFE equalization that, in combination with TX FFE, compensate for up to 30 dB of loss at Nyquist; it also allows advanced troubleshooting capabilities by showing separate LSB and MSB BER, offering targeted error-insertion and allowing realtime monitoring of the received signal levels histogram and SNR.
-Low cost, instrument-grade BERT optimized for high speed data analysis of 100G/200G transceivers.
-The wide range of bitrate coverage allows phy testing for Ethernet, HDMI 2, USB 3.1, PCIe, FiberChannel and others.
-Ability to tune the bit rate in very fine steps to facilitate finding the locking margin.
-Supports FEC KR4 or KP4.
-Supports PRBS13Q/31Q and user-defined patterns.
-Low power consumption.
-API library, sample code and Python wrapper.
-Production testing of transceivers
-Benchtop testing for functional and SI functionality
-On-the-go testing of transceivers in the field
-Transceiver functional tester, for simple validation
