Key Features & Specifications

Key Features

  • Jitter measurements include RJ, DJ, TJ, J2, J9, and DDPWS
  • Jitter analysis on long patterns including PRBS23, PRBS31, and live traffic
  • Amplitude Interference measurements include RN, DI, and TI
  • BER contour mask testing using standards compliant, or user defined, masks

Make compliant measurements easily and accurately

  • PRBS31 is often used when testing 10GbE/40GbE*/100GbE*, OIF-CEI, and SFP+
  • Data Dependent Pulse Width Shrinkage (DDPWS) is measured in Fibre Channel and SFP+
  • Stressed Eye calibration using J2 Jitter or “all but 1% of jitter” is used in 10GbE/40GbE*/100GbE* and SFP+
    * IEEE 802.3ba (40GbE and 100GbE) is still a draft as of March 23, 2009.

Make compliant measurements with confidence

  • All measurements based on precision samples from the 86100C DCA-J
  • Application can integrate 86100C-200 Enhanced Jitter Analysis measurements for devices with ultra-low random jitter

Flexible System Configuration – 86100CU-401 Advanced EYE Analysis software plus:

  • 86100C DCA-J Wideband Oscilloscope Mainframe
  • Any DCA measurement module (e.g. 86108A, 86112A, 86105C, 54754A)
  • 86100C-001 Enhanced Trigger (required for DDPWS, otherwise optional)
  • 86100C-200 Enhanced Jitter Analysis (required for DDPWS, otherwise optional)


This advanced software application performs compliant jitter measurements on long patterns, such as PRBS31 or live traffic, and performs BER contour mask testing on high-speed electrical, or optical, designs.

86100CU-401 Advanced EYE Analysis runs on an external PC, or 86100C DCA-J, running Microsoft® Office Excel 2003/2007. It extracts precision waveforms from the 86100C DCA-J and processes them in MS Excel. For the highest accuracy jitter measurements the application leverages measurements made by 86100C-200 Enhanced Jitter Analysis (Jitter Mode). Alternatively, it can also operate standalone if Jitter Mode is not installed – the choice is yours!

The software application operates with any 86100C DCA-J hardware configuration. 86100CU-401 is ordered as a software upgrade and is licensed to a single 86100C mainframe using the instrument’s host ID and serial number.
