48 Gb/s Error Analyzer, Dual 24 Gb/s Channel (EA2402)

Data Sheet

Product Overview

The Optilab EA2402 is a Dual channel 24 Gb/s Error Analyzer (EA), combined total data rate of 48 Gb/s. Along with PG2402, this high performance analyzer unit provides up to 2X24 Gb/s error detection function for complete Bit Error Rate Testing (BERT) solutions. The user selectable reference clock allows testing BER at a specific data rate with external clock input or at a pre-defined data rate using the internal clock. An intuitive GUI, Optilab Teraport, is provided with the BERT system for ease of operation.
