86100C DCA-J - Jitter Mode

The industry's most accurate jitter analyzer measures subcomponent jitter sources with one-button ease of use.

Jitter Mode

Accurate jitter analysis, including decomposition of jitter into its constituent components, is becoming critical as data rates increase. Decomposition provides critical insight for jitter budgeting and performance optimization in device and systems designs. Jitter Mode decomposes jitter into its constituent components and presents jitter data in various insightful displays. Jitter Mode operates at all data rates the 86100C supports, removing the traditional data rate limitations from complex jitter analysis.

With our Advanced Jitter Analysis - Option 200, you get:

  • 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)
  • Various graphical and tabular displays of jitter data
  • Export of jitter data to convenient delimited text format
  • Save/Recall of jitter database
  • 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
  • Bathtub curve display

TJ Estimate vs Actual TJ

  • Adjustable total jitter probability


  • Fibre Channel
  • PCI Express
  • FBD
  • SATA
  • SAS
  • Infiniband
  • IEEE 802.3ae

TJ Error

  • Very low intrinsic jitter (both random and deterministic) translates to a very low jitter noise floor which provides unmatched jitter measurement sensitivity
  • Wide-bandwidth measurement channels deliver very low intrinsic data dependent jitter and allow analysis of jitter on all data rates to 40 Gb/s and beyond
  • Pattern Lock triggering technology provides sampling efficiency that make jitter measurements very fast
