Custom-Cal has a solution to replace your ADVANTEST D3286. We specialize in quick turnaround times and we can handle expedited deliveries upon request.

The pocketBERT is a very affordable solution which allows for 10 Gb/s measurement and analysis of Bit Error Ratio. This standalone unit is exceptionally portable (4.2” x 5.7” x 1.3”) and is designed with field use in mind. The pocketBERT allows users to perform many of the measurements and functions (BERT, CDR and Frequency Synthesis) at a fraction of the cost of standard test equipment boxes.

ADVANTEST D3286 12 G-bps Error Detector

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

ADVANTEST D3286   Description / Specification: POCKETBERT PB10A   Description / Specification:      
The Advantest D3286 12G-bps error detector is provided with powerful evaluation and analysis functions includ ing the burst data (noncontinuous data) measurement function, the error-generating bit location function, the error measurement function for the specified bit range and the mixed SDH pattern synchronization function . (Mixed SDH pattern is generated by the D3186 and transferred under real conditions.) SDH/SONET Frame Synchronization Suitable for System Evaluation. With SDH/SONET equipment. frames are recognized by means of the synchronization pattern described on the SDH (section overhead). The D3286 error detector mounts the circuit for recognizing the frame synchronization signal and has the capability to set not only SDH/SONET frames but also FDDI and ATM frames and arbitrary synchronization patterns, allowing frames to be synchronized with user-specific frame patterns. The Advantest D3286 is provided with the error location function to locate error bits. For this reason , system errors occurring because of frequency characteristics of the circuit can be easily detected. When this function is used together with the error interval function to identify the cause of random errors, rapid improvement and evaluation are made possible. Specifications. Clock input Frequency range: 150 MHz to 12.0 GHz. DATA input; Frequency range: 150 Mbps to 12.0 Gbps. Sensitivity: 100 mVp-p typ. (12 Gbps), 50 mVp-p typ. (6 Gbps), Approx. 50 ohms.Measurable patterns; PRBS (pseudo random pattern) : 2^N-1, N = 7, 9, 10, 11, 15, 23 and 31. WORD (programmable pattern): Max. 8-Mbit long. SDH/SONET pattern: Max. STM-64/STS-192. Options: OPT3286+70: Mixed pattern generation function.

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.
