Gennum Corp. is using Anritsu's MP1800A Signal Quality Analyzer to validate the bit error rate (BER) of its optical chip set solutions in an SFP+ form factor and which are suited for 10G Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) symmetric and XGPON/10G asymmetric line-rate operations.
Integrated with PON application software, the MP1800A will help validate the ability to re-use the 10G symmetric design to address the XGPON and 10G asymmetric market by generating burst data that is sent to the various Gennum chip sets.
Also being demonstrated by Gennum with the MP1800A is its GN7355, a single-chip 10G EPON transceiver IC; the GN7354, a XGPON and 10G EPON asymmetric single-chip transceiver solution; and the GN7468, a 10G EPON TO-can that provides excellent sensitivity performance along with the industry’s lowest power dissipation.
The MP1800A SQA has can support multiple burst data BER measurements to simulate PON networks. For example, the MP1800A can support four synchronized 14G BERTs or two 28G BERTs, which can be upgradable to a serial 56G BERT. The MP1800A SQA delivers the highest quality waveforms that include the lowest intrinsic jitter.
Complicated searching for input thresholds or phase adjustments is simplified by single key operation.
