- Single instrument 2 wide PXI card containing pattern generation and error detection

- Easily combined with DCA, Pattern Generator, or multiple BERT modules in a PXI chassis

- Single error and error rate injection

- Automatic clock/data alignment

- Jitter bathtub measuring eye opening at defined error ratio depth

- Total error counts over definable time or number of bits

- Bit error over time display


The N2101A-H10 5Gb/s BERT consists of a high accuracy clock source, data pattern generator, and error detector. It will automatically perform bit error rate analysis to characterize the quality of devices from 1.0625 to 5 Gbp/s. When combined with the N2100A-H10 Digital Communications Analyzer, the N2101A PXI BERT represents extraordinary value in communications test equipment.
