ESOR ENGINEERING 2904 4 x 29.5 Gb/s Pulse Pattern Generator and Error Detector

The ESOR 2904 is a high performance, flexible and cost effective four channel Pulse Pattern Generator (PPG) and Error Detector (ED) that can operate from 24.6 to 29.5 Gb/s along with half rates. It is capable of generating a Pseudo Random Bit Sequence (PRBS) or a user defined 40 bit fixed pattern to test signal integrity of digital communication system links. PRBS patterns of 2^7, 9, 15, 23, 31 are supported. It is a standalone Bit Error Rate (BER) test solution that incorporates an internal full rate clock synthesizer therefore avoiding the expense of an external precision clock source.
Optional features: Tilt bar, custom power up configuration for standalone operation, parallel I/O control, dipswitch control, LED status diagnostics, individual PPG or ED configurations, face plate for 19 inch rack attachment, loopback cables or adding attenuators to the ED to adjust sensitivity.

Standard Calibration $750.00 *
*This is a Web introductory price for one calibration of the ESOR ENGINEERING 2904. 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.

Bandwidth is the difference between the upper and lower frequencies in a contiguous set of frequencies within which a fiber optic component, link or network will operate.

Multimode Fiber
Multimode Fiber has a large core (almost always 62.5 microns - a micron is one one millionth of a meter - but sometimes 50 microns) and is used with LED sources at wavelengths of 850 and 1300 nm for short distance, lower speed networks like LANs. Both multimode and singlemode fiber have an outside diameter of 125 microns - about 5 thousandths of an inch - just slightly larger than a human hair.

Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) is an international digital telecommunications network hierarchy which standardises transmission around the bit rate of 51.84 megabits per second, which is also called STS-1. Multiples of this bit rate comprise higher bit rate streams. Thus STS-3 is 3 times STS-1, STS-12 is 12 times STS-1, and so on. STS-3 is the lowest bit rate expected to carry ATM traffic, and is also referred to as STM-1 (Synchronous Transport Module-Level 1). The SDH specifies how payload data is framed and transported synchronously across optical fibre transmission links without requiring all the links and nodes to have the same synchronized clock for data transmission and recovery.
