TEKTRONIX CSA8200 Communications Signal Analyzer Mainframe

The Tektronix CSA8200 Communications Signal Analyzer Mainframe is a comprehensive acquisition and measurement instrument for research, design evaluation and manufacturing test in the fields of datacom and telecom components, transceiver subassemblies, and transmission systems, computer and storage-based high speed electrical serial data, semiconductor test, TDR-based impedance characterization and other applications requiring bandwidths into tens of GHz. It provides a communications-tailored measurement set that includes jitter, noise, duty cycle, overshoot, undershoot, OMA, extinction ratio, Q-factor, mean optical power, and amplitude measurements for both RZ and NRZ signals. Compliance-based mask testing of high speed optical and electrical communications, and computer standards such as SDH/SONET, Ethernet, Fibre Channel is included. Color-grading and gray-scale grading of waveform data adds a third dimension, sample density, to signal acquisition and analyses. The CSA8200 supports a large and growing family of electrical and optical plug-in modules. With its differential clock recovery module, the instrument can be used for acquisition of differential electrical signals even when there is no trigger available. Electrical modules are available with bandwidths up to 70 GHz. Differential and single-ended passive hand probes are available with bandwidths up to 18 GHz. A differential electrical clock recovery module covering most popular data rates between 50 Mb/s and 12.6 Gb/s is also available. Optical modules provide complete optical test solutions for both telecom (SONET/SDH) and Datacom (Ethernet, and Fibre Channel) applications with data rates from 155 Mb/s to 43 Gb/s. Integrated clock recovery is also available on most optical modules.

Number of Sampling Modules Accommodated: Up to four dual-channel electrical; up to two optical sampling modules. (Both single- and dual-channel modules appropriate the two channels associated with the slot).
Rise Time/Bandwidth: Determined by the sampling modules used.
Vertical Resolution: 14 bits over the sampling modules’ dynamic range.
Main and Magnification View Timebases: 100 fs/div to 5 ms/div in 1-2-5 sequence or 100 fs increments.
Maximum Trigger Rate: 200 kHz; in Phase Reference mode, 50 kHz.
Typical Acquisition Rate: 150 kS/s per channel (standard sequential timebase); 50 kS/s (Phase Reference modes).
Record Length: 20, 50, 100, 250, 500, 1000, 2000 or 4000 samples.
Touch Screen Display: 264 mm/10.4 in. diagonal, color.

Accuracy is the degree of closeness of measurements of a quantity to that quantity's actual (true) value.

Jitter in technical terms is the deviation in or displacement of some aspect of the pulses in a high-frequency digital signal. Jitter is the time variation of a periodic signal in electronics and telecommunications, often in relation to a reference clock source. Jitter may be observed in characteristics such as the frequency of successive pulses, the signal amplitude, or phase of periodic signals. Jitter is a significant, and usually undesired, factor in the design of almost all communications links (e.g., USB, PCI-e, SATA, OC-48). In clock recovery applications it is called timing jitter.

Receiver Sensitivity
Receiver Sensitivity is the optical power required by a receiver for low error signal transmission. In the case of digital signal transmission, the mean optical power is usually quoted in Watts or dBm (decibels referred to 1 milliwatt).
