Highlights

Synchronization of

  • up to six M8190A AWG modules or 12 independent channels for complex signal scenarios
  • up to four M8051A and one M8041A BERT modules or 10 independent channels

Precise alignment for repeatable measurements

  • one trigger input can trigger up to six M8190A modules or four M8051A and one M8041A modules with deterministic latency
  • skew repeatability of 2 ps between any two channels independent of sampling rate
  • skew resolution of 50 fs between any two channels

1 U AXIe module for high port density

Complex testing sometimes requires playing multiple waveforms in parallel (e.g., multi-emitter testing). The M8192A synchronization module allows engineers to synchronize up to 12 M8190A channels and fits into a standard AXIe frame.
The M8192A synchronization module also supports testing of high-speed digital buses like PCI Express®.
Test efficiency can be increased by testing up to ten lanes with the M8051A and the M8041A BERT modules in parallel. These can be synchronized by the M8192A module.

Typical applications:

  • phase coherent multi-channel I / Q signal generation up to six I / Q pairs
  • phase coherent multi-channel IF / RF generation with up to 12 IF / RF signals
  • multi-lane serial applications such as PCI Express®
  • physics
  • MIMO application
