  • 5 Reasons to Upgrade to the Keysight 86100C DCA-J


The most comprehensive multi-function analyzer for high-speed electrical and optical signals

The 86100C Infiniium DCA-J combines extremely high accuracy and repeatability with outstanding ease of use to simplify characterizing signals from 50 MHz to 80 GHz. Digital designers can combine the mainframe and modules into four key instruments with industry leading signal integrity performance, including:





Advanced Analysis Features:

Advanced Jitter Analysis

  • Decomposition of jitter into Total Jitter (TJ), Random Jitter (RJ), Deterministic Jitter (DJ), Periodic Jitter (PJ), Data Dependent Jitter (DDJ), Duty Cycle Distortion (DCD), and Jitter induced by Intersymbol Interference (ISI)
  • Jitter frequency spectrum
  • Isolation and analysis of Sub-Rate Jitter (SRJ), that is, periodic jitter that is at an integer sub-rate of the bitrate
  • Jitter spectrum/phase noise for both clock or data signals (requires 83496B Clock Recovery)
  • Decomposition of interference into Total Interference (TI), Random Noise (RN), Deterministic Interference, Periodic Interference (PI), and Inter-symbol Interference (ISI)

Advanced Amplitude Analysis

  • Tabular and graphical results for both one and zero levels
  • Interference frequency spectrum
  • Q-factor (isolated from deterministic interference)
  • Relative Intensity Noise (RIN 1 Level, RIN OMA)

Advanced Waveform Analysis

  • Accurately capture long waveforms (up to 223 bits) with or without averaging
  • Samples/waveform limited only by size of hard disk or memory stick
  • Oscilloscope measurements on equalized waveforms with built-in Linear Feedforward Equalization (LFE) tool
  • MATLAB® interface allows instant processing of oscilloscope data:
    ° Observe and characterize the output waveforms of any LFE, Decision Feedback Equalizer (DFE) or other algorithm
    ° Calculate and display figures of merit or penalty using proprietary or published scripts, such as Transmitter Waveform Dispersion Penalty (TWDP)

Advanced TDR Analysis (Frequency-Domain S-Parameters)

  • On-board S-parameters for differential or single-ended characterization
  • One port or two port devices (single-ended or differential)
  • Measure to current and new standards
