Datasheet

The Keysight 71603B error performance analyzer addresses applications for high speed digital testing up to 3 Gb/s, including R&D and manufacturing test of lightwave components and sub-assemblies, advanced computer technology and high-capacity communication systems.


For transmission systems up to 3 Gb/s, such as datacoms and CATV trunk feeds, the 71603B and 71603B Option 807 error performance analyzers (3 and 1.5 Gb/s) provide a range of PRBS and user-defined patterns with versatile triggering facilities.

 

Features:

  • High performance 100 Mbit/s to 3 Gbit/s pattern generation and bit error ratio (BER) measurement
  • 1 bit to 4 Mbit user programmable test patterns
  • Low-phase-noise clock source
  • User-programmable patterns up to 4 Mbits with screen-based editor
  • Capability to trigger anywhere in the pattern
  • Variable clock/data delay
  • True complementary outputs
  • Automatic setting of data threshold and decision point
