POCKETBERT PB10A Hand Held 10 Gb/s CDR, BERT and Clock Synthesis Unit

The PocketBert pB10A is a fully integrated 10 Gb/s CDR unit with serial 10 GHz clock output and PRBS generator/checker and BER calculator unit. The unit recovers SONET STS192 and 10 Gb/s Ethernet/Fiber Channel clock and data streams in the entire data range from 9.95 Gb/s to 11.32 Gb/s. The build-in PRBS generator and checker enable the unit to test the BER of an electrical or optical link. There is no need for an external reference clock as the unit uses an internal programmable clock generator. If needed an external reference clock can be applied. The unit can also be used as a standalone precision wide range frequency source. It covers the range from 10 MHz to 760 MHz. CDR mode The pB10A receives a serial 10 Gb/s data stream from an O/E converter (APD or PIN) or any other electrical source and recovers clock and data. Typical applications are to extract the 10G clock while testing e.g. optical modules or other electrical PHY components where the testing equipment requires a recovered clock. BIST mode. The pB10A has the capability to generate and check various 10 Gb/s PRBS patterns (231–1, 223–1, 27-1 and custom defined). In this mode the unit can be used to evaluate 10 Gb/s components or links with or without XFP, SFP modules. Provides a cost-effective source to generate non synchronized 10 Gb/s traffic e.g. for DWDM test beds. Features. Data rates from 9.95 Gb/s to 11.35 Gb/s. Recovers clock and data from incoming serial data stream. Integrated pattern generator provides PRBS 231–1, 223–1, 27–1, and custom serial output patterns. Build in PRBS Checker and BER counter/ calculator. Programmable internal clock synthesizer. Complies with XFP MSA standards. 0°C to 50°C temperature range. 1000 V ESD rating. Small sized hand held bench top device (105 mm*144 mm*33 mm). Configuration and management via GUI interface to PC and API interface to access data fields in the GUI. Single wall mount power supply.


Standard Calibration $590.00 *
*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the POCKETBERT PB10A. Price does not in most cases include measurement performance data. Pricing does include NIST traceable calibration and issue of a calibration certificate and calibration label. Pricing may vary slightly due to volume and location of laboratory supporting calibration. Volume pricing may apply. On-site fees may apply depending on logistics, location and volume of work to be completed during the visit.

Extinction Ratio
Extinction ratio is the ratio of two optical power levels, of a digital signal generated by an optical source, where P1 is the optical power level generated when the light source is "on," and P0 is the power level generated when the light source is "off." The extinction ratio may be expressed as a fraction, in dB, or as a percentage. Extinction ratio = P1/P0

A receiver is a detector and electronic circuitry to change optical signals into electrical signals.

Telecom Bands
Optical fiber communications typically operate in a wavelength region corresponding to one of the following Bands. O Band (original): 1260–1360 nm. E Band (extended): 1360–1460 nm. S Band (short wavelengths): 1460–1530 nm. C Band (conventional): 1530–1565 nm. L Band (long wavelengths): 1565–1625 nm. U Band (ultralong wavelengths): 1625–1675 nm
