Key Features & Specifications

  • Variable de-emphasis levels of post-cursor up to 12 dB, differential outputs
  • Supports data rates up to 13.5 Gb/s
  • Convenient operation via user interface of J-BERT N4903A and 81141/2A serial pulse data generators
  • Worst-case testing with jitter feed-through

Description

The Keysight N4916A de-emphasis signal converter enables design and test engineers to accurately characterize gigabit serial ports and channels that operate with de-emphasized signals. This will result in more robust receiver designs, with reliable operation in real PC board environments.

De-emphasis is a commonly used technique for transmitting electrical signals at gigabit data rates. De-emphasis compensates for the losses caused by printed circuit boards and backplanes. The most popular high-speed electrical standards require transmitter de-emphasis, sometimes called also pre-emphasis. These standards are: PCI Express 1 and 2, SATA 3G b/s, fully buffered DIMM, CEI 6/11G, 10 Gb Ethernet.

Keysight N4916A De-Emphasis Signal Converter

 

The Keysight N4916A de-emphasis signal converter can be controlled from the graphical user interface of the J-BERT N4903A high-performance serial BERT and the 81141A and 81142A 7 and 13.5 GHz serial pulse data generators.
