The Keysight N4906B serial BERT is a general-purpose bit error ratio tester for high-speed digital communication components and systems. It is ideal for cost-effective manufacturing and telecom device testing.
The N4906B is offered in 3.6 Gb/s (Option 003) and 12.5 Gb/s (Option 012) versions. Both consist of a pattern generator and error detector with an excellent price / performance ratio.
The 12.5 Gb/s error detector can be configured with CDR (Option 102) to test clock-less interfaces and with true differential inputs (Option 101) to test LVDS and other differential interfaces. The 3.6 Gb/s analyzer is equipped with true differential inputs.
An enhanced measurement suite (Option 101) provides powerful signal analysis capabilities such as BERT scan with total jitter and RJ / DJ separation, fast total jitter, spectral decomposition, eye contour, error location capture, and output-level measurements.
The compact size of the N4906B saves rack space. LAN, USB, and GPIB interfaces allow smooth integration into automated test environments.
For bench users, the N4906B serial BERT offers an intuitive user interface with a state-of-the-art Windows-XP based color touch screen.
